I have had a very productive morning and now it is time for a break. I am sitting here with the windows open (you know I love that) and good book on the Ipod and these addictive Trader Joe's Gingerbread Molasses cookies with a cup of hot tea.
I had a wonderful time at the First United Methodist Church craft fair this past Saturday. What a great turn out! I set my booth up a little different this time. I wanted my concentration to be on my Crop Nights / Workshops/ Catalogs / Handmade Cards.
I brought my demo album, inside that is samples of all the new paper in the 2014 / 2015 Annual Inspirations Catalog, Traditional layouts from classes that I have taken along with workshops I have taught, and Studio-J layouts.
Kaela brought my laptop up because she had the idea of showing off my blog and Crop Area. Since I am trying to get word out that I have a crop area for classes and well crops her idea was for people that might be interested to be able to see the room. Unfortunately I had no idea that she was going to do this and I did not charge the laptop so we had it going as long as the battery lasted. I thought it was a great idea.
The cards were a huge hit! It made me so happy to see people love a handmade card. We get so lost in techno world that it is nice to remember to send a greeting card via snail mail once in a while.
I keep meaning to have the tablecloth hemmed so it hangs correctly but I have been tucking the ends under the table for so many years now I guess it can wait until after craft fair season.
I love the new CTMH table runners! When Mike is available to help me set up I use my banner and goal posts but that set up is too big for one person to set up alone. So when I am alone the CTMH table runners are PERFECT for letting the craft fair crowd know who I am.
I need to give a shout out to Carole Smithwick and Ruth Swingle for making this one of the best craft fairs I ever work. They work very hard all year long to make it run without a hitch and it shows!
If you have never been to this event mark your calendars when I announce the date for next year .
You will thank me
