It's time for the GREEN !

Well, need I say more... It is one of my favorite time of the year!!! I love green beer! My husband's birthday is the day after, so it gives us an extra day to celebrate his special day too. In honor of St. Patrick, I created a special "St Paddy's" Blend of Trail Mix. Don't worry, I didn't add any Snakes to the mix. It is a luscious blend of Mixed Nuts,Red hots, White Chocolate,Cranberries, M&M'S, Sour Apple Rings, Fruitos, and Gummy Bears.  It is a take off of my "Ultimate Trail Mix" I sell on my Etsy site. I think it is pretty yummy.  The Red Hots and Cranberries give it a nice ZING!
I will only offer it till March 13, on my site, otherwise I can't guarantee it will ship in time. Well it is 8:30 P.M. So better go make my Popcorn!
Cheers :)

Check out the Craft show!

I just got back on Monday from a real great Craft Show. I was very happy with the sales this show generated!!! It was called the "Confluence" and was held in the old Town of Gardner, on the Oregon Coast. It was a Wine and Seafood Festival. There were lost of great Bands, yummy food, and some of the best wines that oregon has to offer. I had a great booth in the main Vendor room, alongside two women who had tons of Oregon/Oregon State items which drew the crowds to our section. This is a selection of photos I took. You can see my Granola's and Trail Mixes along with my Twig Santa's! The two sisters to my right had the cutes Nome's !!! They also had the college items, which were a magnet for people. On the right of them was the Couple selling delicious jam's with wine. We all enjoyed our two days together. I made lot's of new friends, and got lot's of helpful tips about other shows coming up. I thought I did quite well for my first real show. Mostly I just sell my items on my Etsy site. If you haven't check it out yet, it's lisadqueen.etsy.com  chek me out.  Well it's off to bed :)

It's that time of year again....

Well it is that time of year again...... The dreaded PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIK;'''''''''''''''''/;PLLLLLLLLLL roperty TaxKLLLLL (This is what you get with a cat who likes to walk across your Macbook!) As I was saying it is Property Tax time. I moan and complain just like everyone else, but it is worth every penny!  It has been six years since we found our home at the Beach. It has Morphed into a wonderful place. It started as a haven for Feral cats before we ran them all out. Now we have a place to come and relax and renew. Which brings up the name. This year I will finish the sign I started four years ago for the front porch. We call the house "Come and Renew".  From the minute you walk in the front door, you will understand what it is all about. A place to come to from the City to unwind, relax, enjoy friends and family. It is a Divine invitation every moment we spend there. I always leave refreshed. For the last six years my family and I have spent a good deal of time there. It has become the place to hang out every 4th. of July. We have finally completed most of the exhausting remodel, and now I need to just spend some time over there relaxing. I am showing some of the completed work which included a new bigger back deck, complete overhaul inside the house from top to bottom, a beautiful new bathroom upstairs. I can't remember how many windows we replaced, it seems like most of them though.
