Lots of hustle and bustle happening around here. We have a few finishing touches to do on the product, still need to tag a few items, put them in the system, and finish packing. This all has to be done within the next 3 days. Once all of that has been accomplished we will start adding all the new items to the ETSY shop.

Besides getting ready for the Pioneer Days we are having a fence built so that the girls have more room to run. It is coming along nicely. If all goes well the fence will be done right before I leave. We are so excited to have the fence. I will post pics once it is finished. That’s enough about us, lets get started on the Cross Creek Square.
