farmers market and opening night of olympics

What a day. I feel like I hit the ground running and picked up speed as the day went along going from one fire to another. Overseeing the three new collection for Pebbles Inc. with a deadline of Sept 15 can be stressful, but in a good way because I love creating. Then the news came... our Pebbles in my Pocket website back end crashed and we lost the last 8 months of images and information. Unrecoverable at this time with our current host so we quickly found a new home and will begin to build our new website this weekend. Everyone is willing to help so hopefully it will get done quickly and be better than ever. 

I had signed up earlier for the Riverwoods Farmers Market on Friday evenings and of course it started tonight. We scrambled and got our display set up quickly. I snapped at Larry. I was at my breaking point. It's been a hard day. Katie and I spent time together at the booth and passed out coupons for Pebbles. Many people still think of us as a scrapbook store and don't know that we have been adding wonderful party supplies. This may be a good way to get the word out. It was very hot for the first couple of hours until the sun went down a bit. Everyone else at home planned an Olympics Party to celebrate the opening night with foods they made from different companies. I did get to come back in time to watch the athletes walk into the stadium and for just a moment the world felt at peace. I do think most people from all countries throughout the world want to live peaceful lives and get along. We are looking forward to watching some of them when we are able...

Love your display. I guess your Farmer's Markets are different from ours. Good Pebbles PR. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers as you rebuild your web site♥
