Not-so-simple Samples...

I feel like I've been in purgatory... making tea samples. Oofa. This is tedious work girls.

But hey!! I'm happyyyyyy! I think I drank a bit too much tea while putting over a hundred of these little babies together! Zing! I'm wired for sound. It's after 11pm, I should be in bed... not gonna happen. Not for a while at least, I need to wear off the tea buzz first. Then again, if I try to go to bed now, I can probably stay up long enough to finally get caught up on Dancing With The Stars and The Biggest Loser. I'm at least 2 weeks behind on each of those. Yes... mind numbing TV, that sounds good right now. I'm typing really fast. Does it sound like I'm typing really fast? Cuz, I am. I'm a fast talker... can't help it.
Whoa, there's a tea mountain beginning to form.
Making a mess of my dining room.

Tea... lots and lots of wonderful, comforting, tasty, yummy tea!

Tea the likes of which you've never tasted (but you should, and I can help you with that)...

Whew! I'm done! Man, I will never take making samples for granted again. That was like a marathon.

I'm trying to get all of my preparations completed early for the Fall Boutique I'm doing on Saturday afternoon. I only have two more days! On the agenda for tomorrow, gift basket making! Then Thursday I need to pull everything together in one spot in the garage so that Saturday morning, I can take off bright & early. The boutique doesn't start until 11am, but I need a couple of hours to get everything set up "just so". I'm a bit of a perfectionist that way.

What's that you say, I skipped Friday? Oh no, Friday is definitely on the agenda, but it's a secret! I'm doing something special for my sweetie, it's a surprise! Eeeee, I hope he likes it! I'll let you all in on it this weekend.

Ok, I think I'll go run around the block or something.

Lisa...I get SUCH a kick out or your posts! You're so cute and soooo funny! Everything looks wonderful. I bet you'll have the best booth at the boutique, and the best time too! I love that basket! Can't wait to hear what's up for Friday! Hugs, Paulette =D

I wish I had the cash to sign up! This all sounds like fun to me! Love the basket you put your samples in! Happy Fall!

Thanks Girlies! Since you both mentioned it, I made that basket for my wedding almost 8 years ago! Sean's been pestering me to get rid of it...(because I kind of have a TON of baskets) but I knew someday I'd have another purpose for it. Besides that, I nearly burned my fingerprints off with hot glue making that darned thing, I'm keepin it!

All those samples do look nice in the pretty basket. It's great that you are getting all these preparations out of the way. I'm looking forward to hearing all about your fall boutique and the special Friday surprise.

Hey Lisa,
I'm exhausted after reading that really, really 'fast' email - you sure can type quick when you are on fuelled with yummy tea!!!
Your samples look lovely in your pretty basket. I hope the boutique goes well.
But most importantly I hope you and yours had a lovely 'surprise' day on Friday.
