We're Pooped!!!

Okay folks...We have just finished our crafting and the gals are taking the week off to prepare for and enjoy Thanksgiving Blessings and family gatherings.  Then we will have one week to work on our candies, fudge, cookies, cakes, pies, apple dumplings, and all our other goodies!

Friday and Saturday are the big day!  December 6th and 7th, we will be ready to greet you from 8am to 3pm on both days.  1401 Mt. Rose Ave. York.  Any questions, call Carolyn at church 717-843-2922.

Plan on staying or returning for a very special lunch.  All homemade, made especially for your pleasure.  Our soups are the best and will be available for takeout in  Pints or quarts.  ME?...I've already ordered one of each!  Don't forget to tell your family, friends, and co-worker's.

We have plenty of parking and are handicap accessible.

Yes...We are Pooped!...but this is what it is all about.  Welcoming you and seeing everyone enjoy the crafts, goodies, and foods.

Where does our money go?  Again...we will tell you that we help support the United Methodist Women with monetary help for the Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets.  We also support the block party in the Fall. which benefits the children with school supplies.  We help with Bethany UM Ministries.  Our ongoing project has been the Social room.  We have paid for new ceiling tiles, new tables and chairs, and now we are saving to have the carpeting removed to be replaced with new flooring.  We are hopeful that this can be done in 2014.  The community and everyone at Bethany benefits from our Christmas and Easter Bazaars.

Now I would like to share with you our last posting before our... 2013 "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!" Christmas Bazaar.  I will post pictures of the bazaar, sometime the following week.

Thank you for all your donations and support!

 First, I would like to introduce you to my new friend, Calvin!  He came to visit the gals at Craft Guild.  Calvin helped me with a craft and I asked him if I could take his picture with his Grandpa, Pastor Dennis.  And he said yes!

After I took a picture, Calvin asked if he could take a picture.  I said "Of Course!..

He takes a GREAT picture!...Don't you agree?

Lucy made 2 of these lovely matching wreaths.
The wreath is covered with red yarn and they are 
finished with lovely felt flowers and leaves!
They would be beautiful on double doors!
Simply Elegant!

We made candy sleighs!
A great stocking stuffer, office gift, or someone confined.
Anyone really, who has a sweet tooth!

Lastly...last year, my Sister, Linda, came from Delaware to 
the bazaar.  She wanted an apron and we had sold what we
So, this year, she is coming and also bringing my Sister, Betty from New Jersey.
Now being she is traveling so far...I felt that we better have some aprons!
I made 9!  Here is a selection of some but not all of them.
  Each one is different.  I had fun creating them, and by the way...
the cupcake apron is mine!  You can see me wearing it 
Friday at the Baked Goods
and remember, we have to save one for Linda!

This apron has a watermelon print with watermelon bib and pockets.

 This blue print has an Espresso bib and two pockets.

 This is a lovely 40's vintage look.
With a green plaid bib and pockets.

 This is my favorite!
A nurse would enjoy this one.  It has a bib, pockets and
 bottom trim of the most adorable
caricature nurses!
You MUST see!

 Followed by
the teachers apron.
On an apple print with bib and pockets

 The last one I made was for me.
