Hail, frost, wind chill, rain... and it's not even Winter

I must be getting cold because all I can think of is hoodie warmth.
Don't you agree!?!

Craft Fair Pictures

Friday night we set up our booth, here it looks so boring, right?

Much better!

Then we added all our stuff...

We had totes and purses,

and more bags,

gorgeous shrines,

ommama and danikai rock!

The aftermath.

Overall it was an awesome weekend! I was pretty much on cloud nine because of Todd's little surprise (see previous blog). I could have cared less if I sold one thing. I sold a good amount though and I was able to buy a bunch of handmade goodies for gift giving. I met lots of really cool artists and saw some amazing work. I would definitely do this fair again but I would start the preparation process in the summer.

Todd proposed!

I said YES, of course!

Todd got up when I told him snow was coming down and then made me coffee. I was running around getting all the loose ends together for the craft fair. He gave me a big hug and then BAM! I don't remember all the details except there was lots of joyful tears.

I never knew...

...that there were so many different types of sewing needles! This whole time I thought my sewing machine was giving me a hard time and all I had to do was buy a variety of needles for a variety of fabrics and projects. I was getting so frustrated and beginning to doubt my machine but turns out I just needed to make it happy. Now I am sewing with the pros!

You might have noticed my shop is on "vacation mode" that just means I will be back in action on December 15th. I am almost ready for this weekend and a bit nervous because I am not quite sure if I have enough bags. Wish me luck!

Also, pictures of the booth to come!

Craft Fair Booth

This is just a small sample of new bags I have that are not posted on my shop. I have lots of new totes and shopping bags that I think everyone will enjoy! If they don't sell at the fair they will be posted on the 15th for your viewing pleasure :)

Theresa and I staged our booth for the craft fair this past Saturday. I think it is going to be quite lovely. For those of you who won't be able to make it :( I will be sure to get some pictures. We were not sure what to do and then it just all came together thanks to a shiny piece of gold fabric, trust me it looks awesome! I am so excited to show off all my creations.

My shop will be closed (i.e. "on vacation" mode) 12/10-12/14 in preparation for the craft fair. I have lots of organizing and inspecting to do so I think this will make things easier for me. Things will be up and running soon after, don't fret!

Did everyone have a family fun filled turkey day?!?! Todd and I went to see Role Models it was hilarious well at least the first half was then it just got silly. I am so excited to see my family in a few short weeks at Christmas. Oh and my little brother is turning 21! What kind of shenanigans could we possibly get into....


p.s. I think I might throw my bobbin winder out the window for Hops to chew on, this thing is driving me insane!
