A few more pics. Here is Ray, Jessica (my niece) and yours truly in front of a Christmas display. I also wanted to show you a pic of us in front of an anchor at the Pier in Chicago. Do I look cold? The first picture is Ray, my brother Jim, sister-in-law Valaine, nieces Lily and Jessica coming out of the General Store, which was a great place to buy souvenirs.
Well, I'm thawing out from our trip to Indiana. I thought I would have computer use but I didn't so I'm posting after our trip. Here is an eatery in Shepshewana.
As you may have guessed it is in Amish country and the food was great! Thanksgiving was great at my brothers home.
We had a chance to go to Chicago and my favorite place was Millenium Park and the Hancock Building. It was very chilly but I loved the country living and city excitement. Our two weeks flew by but we are so happy to be back in Hawaii.

It's finally here! My hubby Ray and I are leaving the Islands tomorrow to visit Indiana. Fort Wayne to be exact. We are planning to visit Chicago while in the area. Looking forward to the two weeks we will be on the mainland. Will keep you all posted.

We have now tried a craft sale to sell our items. This was my (AmorDePlata.etsy.com) and my hubby's (HawaiiRayRay.etsy.com) first craft sale. We joined up with Angela (AMKstiches.etsy.com) to sell our Etsy items. Angie had the greatest sales and did well, Ray sold a few and I had a sale.
My items apparently are not for craft sales, maybe home shows would be better for me. It is lots of work and took about 10 hours of time. I have to make more items and I just can't find the time. I am very happy to have had this experience and we did give out lots of business cards and Etsy Hawaii Street Team postcards during the craft sale. This may be good for future sales and maybe Chrismas sales.
