A couple updates...

Well I have been invited to participate in 2 craft fairs on Tuesday of next week, one in Kernersville at Keller Williams Realty from 12:30-2:30 and then another that afternoon at Providence Place in High Point from 4-6. I will also be at the Western Avenue Baptist Church in Statesville this Saturday from 10-3 pm. Also next Saturday 12/19 I will be at the Graham Civic Center (off McGhee past the middle school) from 10-3. So plenty of opportunities to pop by and say hello and grab a couple last minute gifts for all those sweet people in our lives you want to give a little something to. Here are a couple things I have been working on this week.

Check out those cute dog treats. My dog loves them!

What a cold weekend!

This was my side of the tent, much more cluttered than moms, LOL. We had to protect as much as possible from the wind/rain/cold, so we didn't get a lot of items out the first day.

Dad helped both days. I think he likes this craft fair hobby!

Second day was much better. My daughter didn't stay covered up in the corner like the day before. We were able to display so much more and the people came out to shop!

I loved this setup from the first day. Moms stuff just seems to all go together very nicely, kind of like room decor in a box idea.

Santa came out today and just had to have his picture taken with the blah blah girls. Mom made the hats to match our theme, we were the hit of the show.

On day 2, we were able to display the ottomans and lots of people admired them. A couple good leads. Come on you guys, you know you want one or two!

This was moms setup inside day 2. We needed to get that beach decor out and show off her talents.

The Doggy Seat Saver and dog treats were a huge hit yet again! Whats not to love. Our dogs want to travel with us and we need and want them to be safe doing so. They are our children too!

Well the craft fair was cold yet a lot of fun. 2 days spent with family and made new friends to boot. I enjoyed it and look forward to many more future shows. Thanks to all who came out in the weather. See you soon, blah blah blah.

First Official Craft Show Jacksonville NC

Well we had our first craft show this past weekend. It went pretty good. Mom didn't sell any storage ottomans this time but did sell her first Doggy Seat Saver to the bulldog breeders. We are hoping that's a big lead for her. I sold lots of little things and the 40 Sucks bouquet. My daughter was happy about that. We worked together on the booth set up and discovered things we would do a little different next time. We did enjoy being together like always.
The doggy seat savers are great for keeping your dog hair off the seats and to keep the dogs in the seat instead of on the floor. We have lots of styles and colors to choose from, can customize with your car colors. 38.00 each.
The ottomans are all handmade and come with a matching pillow. You can easily store a blanket or two and the tv remotes/books inside. Also makes a great seat when you have a lot of people over. We can customize to match your decor. 89.00 each
The starfish candle holders are $25 for the set or $12.50 each.

Let us know what you think!

My first craft show with out mom, : (

I would say it went well. I started out nervous and ended up just fine. Met lots of wonderful people and as a bonus got to see both my grandma /grandmother and granddaddy too. Here are a couple pictures of my setup at home before packing it for the show. I didn't take my camera, next time!
Some hot sellers were the marble magnets and book marks. Very interesting. No real interest in my sucks bouquets though, maybe next time. Oh well, blah blah blah.

Trial Run for Craft Show!

This was one of the first pictures before we really got everything totally together, but this was show was with a good friend of mine who shared her space and talents with me. I did sell a few things and a couple of ottomans. Lots of people made lots of good comments about the ottomans. There may be some custom orders in the works. Thank you Debra for sharing!!!
This weekend will be the FIRST OFFICAL "Blah Blah Girls Craft Show. It will be in Jacksonville, NC. Crystal, Emily and I are very excited and hope to share good news next week.
Until then wish us luck and blah, blah, blah!!!

I haven't seen Crystal much this week, but we have been talking about this and that...

This one is ready except for the feet. There are two more in the background that should be ready by the end of the day. I am trying to put the next color choices together. Any Ideas?
We are Working Hard and Having Fun...blah, blah, blah.

These are some things I have been working on...

This is a door hanger that is double sided. Cute for a boys room, or the bathroom. LOL

This is a 12 note card set with storage box. I love this set more than anything else I have made. This is a Tin cup to be filled with candy for your favorite froggie lover!

I talked to mom on the phone today at least 10 times for no shorter than 15 minutes each time. We feed off of each others creative energy, we inspire each other. Until next time, blah blah blah.
