Getting a booth at the Clark County Fair

Clark County Fair As I write this not all the pieces are put together for having a booth at the fair – BUT it is looking promising. By tomorrow I should know for sure. In the meantime I am moving ahead as if it is a Go! Last year there were over 280,000 people that attended the fair so it is a very big event for me to be at. I am excited. Booth Planing I have never had a booth at the fair before so this is a new experience. I am planning, plotting and figuring out everything that has to be done. The first thing of course is the puzzle...

Local Hallmark store carrying my  book!

Well, totally the most exciting of exciting news. I got a call yesterday that Hallmark in Hazel Dell will carry my book. At least they are giving it a try. Very exciting, exciting news. And just to keep the fever pitch of excitement moving I am hoping to have a booth at our Clark County Fair this year. Last year there were over 280,000 attendee’s so if all goes well I will have a lot of exposure for my book. Don’t have the final approval yet – but looks favorable. If I do get accepted I only have 13 days to get all my ducks...

A glimpse into eternity

I just found this quote but I think it is beautiful. It goes with the picture I think. All that we do in this life – is seemingly so big and important at the moment we are living it – but time fades it away to almost nothing. A memory comes to mind of being a small kid and bouncing a ball – it was important enough to make a blip on my memory but how many other thousands of memories are just gone. Maybe they are a vital part of our eternity who knows. Every day I think about eternity. What is it? How is it? Such a mystery...

Puzzle for Kids – Jungle Fun

So far no luck with finding a store or outlet to carry my books. Have a couple of possibilities. Telling myself I have to try 100 places before I think of some other way to market them. So far I have only contacted three places so I have a lot of contacting yet to do. The biggest factor at the moment is thinking of places that reasonably “might” want to carry them. Beautiful day here today. We have had over 30 days without rain. Pretty good for Vancouver. Planted tomatoes, onions, peppers and potatoes a while back and they are...

Tiger in the Woods

July 17th (today as I write this) I went over the 60 yard line. I am now 61. Amazing. Life unfolds new every day. Made my first trip to try to sell my book to our local Hallmark. Not sure if it will be a go or not as the manager was not in. Sigh. But I left the book and a sales sheet and will see. One of the sales clerks who was very helpful said that the Fort Vancouver gift shop was looking for local crafts and things and that I should try there. Jon drove me down but unfortunately they are closed on Mondays. So will try again tomorrow. Been...

Water Lily Puzzle

Decided to start sending a daily puzzle. This time I am not going to limit myself to just Vancouver¬† as I did in the Exploring Vancouver USA site. Just got to be too confining on days when I couldn’t find a good image to use. I figure the only way I can keep this up is to make it as easy and fun as possible. I have lots and lots of beautiful images that I have purchased earlier for other sites and so will use them. Easy and nice. I also decided that I would send this blog post out from just my own name domain site, patriciaproctor.com....
