Frantic Friday!

The Bag Lady has been busier than a cat on a marble slab...........(Did she just date herself by using that expression? In fact, does anyone know what that cat is trying to do on that marble slab? If not, the Bag Lady will tell you in the comment section.....)

She has some crafts yet to finish this morning, and the sale starts this afternoon! Aaacckkk....
Here are just a few of the things she has ready for the sale:

Casserole Carriers:

Sugar Body Scrubs and Salt Foot Scrubs, with wash-mitts:


Door Swags:


And, of course, her CartSmart Bags:

She will also have some of her salsa, and some home-made granola, and some Christmas cards, and soap-saver mitts, and more......if she gets everything finished in time!

Have a good weekend!

Gotta run....

The complete expression, for all you young'uns who didn't grow up in my crazy family, is:
"Busier than a cat trying to cover shit on a marble slab!"

MizFit said...

and the craftstuff? AWESOME.

the Bag Lady said...

Miz - I do not really know the origin of the expression, other than my parents used it....

And I shall endeavour to let you know how things turn out. May not be until Sunday or even Monday - it's a two-day sale, and we might move cows on Sunday.

Have a great weekend.

dfLeah - thanks! I sure hope so.

Tricia said...

You'll do great, the crafts look awesome.

the Bag Lady said...

Tricia - thanks! Now, as long as the weather co-operates and people actually come to the sale.....

darksnark said...

Ah...this explains the radio silence... Have fun, don't smoke, and sell lots!

the Bag Lady said...

Marianne - yes, I've been head down, ass up around here....next week should be better.....Thanks! (and the smoking will be no problem - provincial law prohibits smoking in public buildings!)

bunnygirl said...

The crafts look great and I hope you make lots of sales!

Missicat said...

Missicat - thanks! Of course I'll remember all the little people....hahahaha! (rich and famous *snort*)

Sagan said...

Hehe never heard that expression before- the first thing that popped into my head was that a cat would be sleeping on a marble slab.

Have loads of fun and good luck with all your crafts!

JavaChick said...

Have never heard that expression before. Good luck with the craft sale! Looks/sounds like you've got lots of good stuff.

the Bag Lady said...

Sagan - my parents used that expression constantly - they only ever said "busier than a cat on a marble slab" for many years around us when we were kids. Wasn't 'til I was much older that I knew the entire expression.....

Javachick - okay, I guess that makes me officially old (and perhaps a little strange....)

Thanks for your good wishes, both of you!

Reb said...

Good luck Sis! I know you will do well. Maybe it was just our parents, or maybe it was something mom brought from down east?

Hilary said...

The expression is new to me too, but apparently the Urban Dictionary knows a slightly different version.

No doubt you'll do great. Then we get to hear all about it. It's win/win!

the Bag Lady said...

Reb - actually, I think it was probably an "original variation" - unique to our family, perhaps.

Hilary - thanks for linking to that - a cat on a frozen pond is the same image!

Sarah said...

I have always wanted to make my own salt/sugar scrubs!!! That is so cool. I really should just do it.. great gifts for Christmas!

the Bag Lady said...

Sarah - Gena posted the recipe on her blog - Gena Cooks (there's a link in my sidebar) - it's easy, and they work really well!

Gena said...

Oh, I love the casserole thing! That's a great idea. Good luck and have fun at the craft sale!

Terrie Farley Moran said...

You are sooooooo talented!

Have a great time at the craft show.

kcinnova said...

I have a casserole carrier (different model, but also cloth) and I LOVE it!
Good luck on your sales.

the Bag Lady said...

Gena - thanks. I'm hoping they'll be popular...

dfTerrie - Aw shucks, thanks!

Kcinnova - I have seen a couple different styles, but thought this one looked clever, yet simple - and it is! Thanks.
