It's been a while... since I first saw you...

Ok, ok!! I won't sing anymore Creed. Although that song is now STUCK in my head! Thanks a lot...

Wow, it seriously has been a while since I've written. And for that I apologize.
What have I been up to lately? Well... I'll give you a brief synopsis of my life as of late.
It's been a crazy year!!! My son (oldest) finished Kindergarten last year, it was a rough year for us. My hubby had to take a new job, and a pay cut... which has drastically affected our family.
But God is providing!!!

I've done a whole slew of shows and events! Some of the ones I did last year, and some new ones. I've made some new friends, new contacts and new customers. And for that I am forever grateful!

We also have a new puppy. Yes, I have to show you a picture. This is Maximus Bell Colt AKA: "Max". He is a purebread Doberman. The sweetest dog you could ever imagine! Where my hubby's hand is about how tall he was when we brought him home 5 months ago.

Our oldest, DJ, is now in first grade and doing SO well! We couldn't be more proud of him.
This was his first day of school this year:
And of coarse I've been working my tail off on new bow designs! As well as other ways to create income for my family. I'd love to tell you more! Just comment and let me know!!

Thanks for reading. I'd love to hear from you!
God Bless

New Things In Store

 That's right, NEW things in store for Hart Of Karen Creations! First of all, A new WEBSITE that is ALL inclusive! One stop shop for all of my friends. 

I've also started making some super cool new things! Sashay scarves!!! How cool is that?!?

I'm going to start learning to crochet other things as well.

I have several events already on the calendar for this year! They start as early as mid-March! Well... time to get the kiddos in bed. Talk to you soon!

It's THAT time of the year!

The time of the year when Holiday Craft Shows/ Bazaars and Festivals are in full swing! And yes, Hart Of Karen Creations is involved in several this season.

We started the season off with the Third Annual show at Portland Christian School in October. It was so much fun! My friend went with me to lend a hand and keep me company. Pretty good traffic for being their third year!

The second event was an HONOR to be a part of. I was invited to be a vendor at the Hwang Martial Arts International Tae Kwan Do Tournament. I was in the company of martial artists from all over the globe! 2,000 - 4,000 people at any given time at the Kentucky International Convention Center. It was AWESOME! I was even blessed to have my husband and mother in law join me! I'm super stoked to get prepared for Extravaganza in March where they raise as much as possible for the Kosair Children's hospital here in Louisville.  But bad me... I didn't get pictures. :(

Third event was this past weekend at Fern Creek High School. This show has been going on for years! It was at three locations, the school, fire department AND church nearby. I was pleased with my spot and a custom order!

How do you like that new banner?? Yep, I love it! Thanks to my super awesome friend, Megean, who does all of my graphic design. Need some? Check her out! The Individuality.

My fourth event is THIS weekend. Saturday 9am - 3pm. I will be at the Chance School Holiday Boutique. There are going to be roughly 50 vendors, so come on out!

Then it's a small break for me until after Thanksgiving.

Ballard Holiday Halls is my next event and I will be partnering with my friend, Kate, for this one and the next one. She does super cute work and we coordinate well! Check her work out at Bity Bundles Of Joy and see what we can do for you!
Ballard is  Saturday and Sunday, December 1st and 2nd.

Our last event of the season will be at J-Town high school on Saturday December 8th. I'll still be accepting custom orders for delivery before Christmas, but no more shows after this one. It'll be our season 'finale'!

So, that's our run down for the season! There are LOTS of others going on around town right up until Christmas. I highly suggest, if you don't find what you're looking for with me, please buy handmade this year! You're helping people support their families and keeping American money IN America!

Hope to see you soon!

Did You?

We live in the greatest nation in the free world. We are very blessed to live in the land of the free, and home of the brave. Many men and women have fought and died for our right to exercise our right to vote in our elected officials.

This is a very important election, on so many levels. I shall keep my personal opinions to myself, but if you know me personally, you know which way I went and pray will happen. This election is keeping me on the edge of my seat as the reports of which state is red or blue.

As much as I want this election to go in the way I want it to, I also believe in the sovereignty of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We will have the same God tomorrow, no matter who is elected and takes office in January, 2013.

Did you do your civic duty as an American?

Battle of The Bows...

Yep, I entered one! Well ok, I THOUGHT I did. Apparently I was 2 hours late getting my photo in... However, I was able to enter it into the auction! This sucker took me more than an hour to make! But it was nice to get to creating again...

Ever have those days??

It's one of THOSE days... I'm stinkin' exhausted! It's been such a busy few weeks for us, I'm just worn down! I've not had time to do much of anything...

Motivation - that's the name of the game... I have none! Oh well, I think it'll pass... just hope sooner rather than later! Ok... pity party over... must do SOMETHING productive!

It's been a while...

Yep, I've neglected my 3 followers... and for that I am very sorry!
Life... it's been INSANE. My family has been dealing with our oldest starting kindergarten. The hubby working 50-80 hours a week, our BABY turning 2 in a few days... craft shows, wholesaling, family... and the list goes on and on and on and on..

So, I look forward to some new activity, as well as some new opportunities! My family is adapting and evolving, and my business is growing! Can't wait to tell you what's happened with it lately!!

Sorry it's been a while!
