Busy, busy, busy. . .

Hey everyone! Sorry to be gone so long. It's been a crazy busy week here! Hubs and I are doing our very first craft fair on October 2 and we have both been crafting like mad trying to get ready for it. It is being held at a community center in a small community near where we live. I thought it might be a good one to get our feet wet because we have both been talking about doing one of these for quite a while but just haven't taken the plunge yet. The spaces rent for only $5 each so if we don't sell anything, we won't really be out all that much. I spoke to the lady in charge of it last night and she told me so far they have 15 vendors signed up! I was thinking like maybe 5 or 6! So now I'm really nervous! But we will never know till we try, right??

I have been busy making fabric pumpkins, pin cushions, Christmas tucks and ornies, salt dough ornies, game boards and signs, and faux caramel apples to sell. Hubby has been keeping the saw hot making wagon wheels, outhouse toilet paper holders, little storage crates and other stuff. Here's a few pics of some of things we've been busy creating:

Y'all keep your fingers, toes, arms, legs, and eyes crossed for us. This is so exciting but scary too! I'll be sure to let you know how it turns out.

Til next time. . .

  15. Good Luck on your first venture.. I too have considering doing this. I have decided this year I will begin to prepare and get the items started. So far I have crochet items,only 5 or 6. Next year at this time I hope to have everything up and running like you are now. I know I couldn't do it in such short I had nothing stored up..

  16. OH, good for you Donna, that is so cool!
    I just love those little pin cushions and the fabric pumpkins! You will do great, and at only $5 a booth it's practically free! And having more booths will just draw more people in. So glad to hear from you too!
    Good Luck,
