Nearly Sold Out!

Hi all

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back with the outcome of the show I just finished. It nearly wore me out and I needed time to recoupe. I spent 4 days up in Richmond and I'm happy to report...THE SHOW WAS GREAT!! I couldn't believe the crowd and they were buying! I found a great motel to stay at which was near everything and I even had time to shop at hobby lobby alittle after the show on Saturday. This is a show worth doing and I plan to do their spring show next year!

There was a crowd waiting on Friday to shop and I hardly had time to even run to the ladies room. I have to thank my fellow neighbors who helped out during break time when the slow periods did happen (but they were far and few between. Here is a peek at some of my neighbors work. :-)

Here is what my booth looked like before the set up

Here is what my booth looked like with all my crafts added. I also decided to put in a tree for 25 of my santa oranments and I sold all of them! There were about 8 mini gingerbread that I made just for added decoration for my check out table and customers wanted to buy them. The biggest seller was snowmen!

Craft Show Preview

Hi all,

Well I'm nearly done with my crafts for this month's show which is October 26, 27 & 28th. Friday's show is long from 10am to 9pm which means I will need an cooler to keep my snacks in. Hubby can't make this show so I hope I'm near someone who doesn't mind us taking turns to use the bathroom during down time (if any). :-)

Here is my 4 totes filled with finished crafts:

With only an 8 x10 space I thought I would do a dry run of my display set up so I created my own display in my living room. This way I can decide what I need more of and also see if my finished products need something extra: My display before adding crafts:

Here is my display with my crafts added to them...remember there are a few unfinished crafts that I'm still working on but this gave me an idea of what I needed to do:

Getting Ready for a Show

Hi, It's a rainy Saturday and I'm busy in my sewing room preparing for my first show of the year in Richmond, Va. Boy am I nervous and I know I shouldn't be but everytime I prepare for a show I get that butterfly feeling in my stomach. It will past like usual and maybe it's my way of keeping me focus and on track...who knows. :-)

The room still looks a mess but I organized it enough so I can work and not bump into everything. I have cut out 13 patterns that I've been wanting to try. Here is my pile:

Here is my other dolls which are either missing hair or some final added piece to complete them. I also have another section of misc dolls with bodies, heads, and clothes; which still need to be put together.

On top of it all I have a brand new pattern which I still have to finish but here is what she looks like so far. She doesn't have a name yet but it will come to me. Ok, I'm off to finish up all of these projects. :-)
