The Show....

So, the Holiday Preview Show was this past weekend. I had a blast! Sold some goodies, bought some goodies & made a new friend! A successful weekend for sure.

Here is a pic of the display. I have to say it did look better in person! But I was happy with the way it turned out. I have a few orders I am finishing up from the show and then on to restocking the shops I consign in.

The big sellers for the weekend were hats and headbands.

Where does the time go?

Ugh - do you ever just feel like the days are just melting by? I have had that feeling a lot lately. There were grand visions of craft projects to be done, pies to be made, Princess costumes to be sewn, bulbs to be planted, pumpkins to be carved and construction to be rolling along........I am sad to report that we are officially behind schedule. But it seems that is the way it goes sometimes.

I have a big (well okay - hopefully big) show this weekend and I only have 3 days to finish getting prepared. I have a bit of everything to work on for it, so it always feels like nothing is getting accomplished. Sigh......

Well, enough of my pity-party, I have too much to do! Wish me luck!
ps- I have no idea where this pic is from, but isn't it just cute? I can just picture the girls doing this.

Holiday Preview Show Coming Up!

It is just about time for Sandra Began's Holiday Preview Show.......Yippee! There are amazing goodie bags for the first 100 customers each day and there are great local artisans/crafters as well as local small businesses there.
I was at the show last year as well and had a great time. Hope to see you there!
There is an admission charge ($10 ahead, $15 at the door) and all of the money is donated to local charities.

Hope to see you there!

new banner for my etsy shop

So I felt like my etsy shop was a little tired looking so I got a fresh new banner for it.

I have worked with Noa from Grain ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/grain ) before & she is great. I can describe something to her & BAM - she sends me just what I was picturing! And she is very quick with her turnaround time. I would highly recommend her for your graphic needs. And if you are like me you need all the help you can get!

Well, I'll be at the Appleton Market this weekend - so head on down! I have a new style of pendant & lots of new headbands

I hate to admit but this is a photo of my sewing table today......it is a disaster area. I'd like to pretend like this isn't how it normally looks - but it is. But the pile of projects/supplies does vary.
Today it's a heap of headbands. And a large pile of onesies.

Good thing I have such good helpers!

..~*~..Have A Magical Day..~*~..

Ahh....we have been out of town the last couple weeks......we took a drive to Florida & visited my dad and made a trip over to Disney. It was a great vacation. I read a book and didn't sew or create (even though I did take my machine with me.....I have issues I know)

It was 80-90 while we were there & we did lots of swimming. In the pool & the Gulf. And on the drive back we had to stop & put sweatshirts and pants on.....When we got home it was fall.

I also got to stop at Ikea and we picked out a new bathroom vanity/sink & mirror, which is good because just before we left I came home from work to see this in our bathroom. (yes, that is WIll pounding holes in to the wall - the wall is all gone now) Our bathroom was UGLY before and it really needed a face lift. Always something to do I guess! But we did find this newspaper in the wall - it is dated December 31st, 1916! Pretty fun....

Well, I am officially behind on my projects now. I had planned on making a bunch of hats while I was down there for my winter goodies, but I didn't make a single one. So I will be finishing unpacking today and fill a couple orders from the market that I had got just before we left....

Have a great day!
