I am totally excited!!! I completed two baskets and they look great. I even impressed my family with them; I don't think they really knew how professional they'd look. The shrink wrap and heat gun I used are wonderful and really give the baskets a good final touch. After my dinner break I'll finish the final assembly and wrapping of three more. Unfortunately, I've been on stand by to do any more because my daughter who happens to have the nicer camera has been busy and the family (no one knows for certain who) has lost our other digital camera so I can't assemble any more tonight. As soon as I can get a hold of a camera, I'm going to take the remaining pictures of my first group of baskets and then I can make the final touches to them. I sure hope to be able to get this batch of baskets done so I can upload the photos and info to start selling them. I don't have any more room to make any more until I start selling a few. It's hard to say which I like best, shrinking the wrap and seeing the final product or finding the items and creating a new basket. It doesn't really matter because doing all of this is just fun and I'm glad that I finally came up with the idea to do something that I like as a business.

Writing about myself here reminds me of all my English assignments at the beginning of the school year were I had to write an essay about myself or one of those get-to-know you socials where everyone has to say several new & interesting things about themselves. I never did get smart and save my answers to use them again. For some reason I always feel hesitant and at times unclear about what I should say about myself that would be interesting. So this is me at a glimpse: I grew up in Rockville, Maryland - went to Wheaton High School - went to Ricks College - met my husband while at school - am a mother of six children - live in Rexburg, Idaho - received my associates' degree from BYU-I in 2011 - actively a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - actively volunteer in the Boy Scouts of America program in Cub Scouts - and like to organize and create things.
