The Craft Shows are over but there are still orders to fill....

In the last 2 weeks, I have participated in  one very successful craft show and a not-so-successful one. It's always a gamble to know what buyers will find appealing. The second show was at the Garden Club of a friend and I had a great time, spoke with really nice women and listened and watched a very interesting speaker. The day was not a loss by any means. You just can't be a winner everywhere. I still have several orders to make and fill so I don't have time for a long post but I thought you'd like to see some pictures of what has been on my desk....and the kitchen table....and the coffee table....and in the living room (where my Cricut machine is for now). I have been churning out banners like mad and my shoulders and neck are paying the price. Still, I wouldn't change my craft for anything. I am constantly inspired and already thinking about some spring projects!

Some of the cake/candle stands

The banners...remember that you can click on the picture to enlarge

(Sandy, the mice are cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge and the saying was done on the computer in mixed fonts...I knew you'd want to know)

I missed photographing several banners, some of them can be seen hanging at the fair. I would be lost without the 3M hooks and mini clothespins...they make life so much easier!
For the Garden Club ladies, I wanted to offer some items that I thought would appeal to
gardeners and flower lovers...some decorated journals

Here are some better pictures of the wipe-off boards...

Each board is a 7X7-inch acrylic scalloped square, back with pretty paper and tied with vintage seam binding. They came with the stand and the pen.
More banners....

I've gone through a ton of paper and rolls and rolls of adhesive. I love making banners and will make more Christmas themed ones cause my peeps at work want to see them.

Let me ask you have a favorite banner?

I hope to be visiting and commenting more this week but for now, I must get back to the banners.
Eight banners are almost complete and just to give you an idea...

there are 55 pieces to each Give Thanks banner. I have made 6 of them.

Thanks for taking the time to stop for a visit...I've missed you
but will visit soon!
