Wow! What a wonderful day! So much fun! As I’m sure most of you know Angie, from Just a lil’ Raggedy, held her Open House this weekend and I was invited to set up a booth of primitives, handmade's and over all wonderful goodness.
For those who have visited my home… you know that I have a “hoard” room full of overflow décor. I change my décor a lot. I get bored… so I stash everything in my “Prim Room”. It’s all very clean and organized with cabinets and shelves and such. I’ll share it someday. Promise!
Anyway… back to the matter at hand… Angie invited me to share my “hoard” at her open house. How could I say no? Couldn’t!
At first I told Angie there was no way I could even fill a small table. I won’t lie… I was super stressed and I was so afraid I was going to let her down. Angie’s prims are wonderful… and I didn’t know how I would ever live up to that. Not to mention then I found out who else was coming and I thought I better get to work!
So I started on some handmades. I haven’t crafted in a long time. I have always been crafty (except for sewing) and have always made things for myself. I even spent 2 years as a scrapbooking teacher at Cord Camera. I guess I just burnt out. But I had to get to it.
What to make?
Homespun Candy Canes,
Wax bowl fillers,
Large candy canes,
Do you think I set my goals high enough? Um… yes! And guess what, I busted my behind and got it all done. Just in time! Which is why you haven’t heard much from me as much in the last few weeks!
Any way… I have never done a show so this was all new to me. And in the end… I ended up having a 8 foot by 7 foot table area filled to the brim. :)
And I’m so glad I did…because Angie did a wonderful job and we had a steady stream of traffic all day. No one went home with empty pockets and it was a great success as far as I’m concerned!
Thanks Angie for hosting such a wonderful open house! You did a great job! As did all the vendors!
So… here it is… my first ever booth.
Lets take a look…
Big seller! Candy canes!
Soooooo cute! (and so much work!)
Big and small pantry cakes.
So there you have it. It was much fun… but I’m exhausted. Happy exhausted… but exhausted none the less. I’m ready to crash.
Thank you Angie for a great Open House! You did a good job!
Until next time…
