Etsybloggers Carnival - Official end of summer

This week's carnival is being hosted by Sandy, aka Punky Jane. I knew I would have no trouble finding something to write about, after seeing Sandy's John Lennon quote - DH and I are big fans!

You can find Punky Jane's blog on blogspot,

and her Etsy shop goes by the same name.

Sandy gives us two topics about the end of Summer:
1) School time! What is your favorite memory from kindergarten or taking your kids to kindergarten?
2) Labor Day...As the 'official' end of Summer, how do you celebrate Labor Day and what does it mean to you?

I grew up on the East Coast, and Labor Day used to mark the end of summer and the beginning of school. Here is Oklahoma, school has already started, and a new cycle has begun. I'm out of school and don't have children, so Labor Day means a holiday from work. One of those "hard holidays."

What will I do this Labor Day? Work! Yes, but I'll work for the storybeader, on my blog and Etsy shop, creating art and telling stories. Here's a new story I've been working on: about a young lady named Lily, who comes to Oklahoma Territory with her parents, and participates in the land run. Two things in my shop remind me of Lily's escapades:

I, too, grew up on the East coast. And we did not start school till after Labor Day! The work you have planned sounds like fun! We were going to visit our daughter, but she has to work (imagine that!).

School doesn't start here until after Labor Day but they go until mid-June. Your story sounds very interesting and I like the pieces you chose too. Is Lily Native American?
