Break Time...

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
