You guys, I'm not even trying to be overly dramatic here. My Fall and Christmas was just ruined by this one simple post on Facebook...

If you have ever stood in line for hours at the Ornaments By Claudia booth at Fall Diddley at the Boone County Fairgrounds you understand why this news is so traumatic.

I have been collecting Claudia's ornaments every year for over a decade. I buy a family one and one for each of my kids every year. It's tradition and I am obsessed with how cute Claudia's stuff is.

Last year I couldn't make it to Fall Diddley due to scheduling conflicts, and I legit almost cried. I have a special place in my home where I show off my personalized Claudia ornaments, and a missed year in the sequence isn't something I can bear.

If you're thinking, so what, big deal, buy them online. I CAN'T...believe me I've tried. Claudia only does a few shows a year. She does not sell online, and I have never found anything close to her style or cuteness on Etsy either. Starting to understand why I'm so sad?

The one light at the end of the tunnel is, Ornaments By Claudia does a show at Arlington Race Track at the end of November/beginning of December. It's where I got my ornaments last year when I thought Christmas was ruined, but I gotta be honest with you, the line at this show was even longer at her booth. 😬

Sometimes we do silly things for love...and I love you, Ornaments By Claudia. Get well soon.

Please excuse me while I go cry in the bathroom now.
