Some Craft Show Peeks

I have been busy for the past month or so, working on projects for the annual Craft Show I participate with every year. The house is strewn with banners and art boards, waiting for ribbon or twine. My craft room is indescribable.....kind of a happy train wreck! Lots of things going on at the same time!
The show is next Friday and Saturday, November 1 & 2.
I haven't been spending as much time as I'd like visiting blogs and websites and David said our life is divided into two sections, BC....before Craft Show and AC...after Craft Show. Most things have been put off until  "AC". Then, I will have time to clean out closets and switch out short sleeved shirts for turtlenecks and light-weight PJ's for the flannel kind I love in the cold weather. For now, I can be found going back and forth between 2 bedrooms as I search for the warm layers we are suddenly needing. OK, enough whining!
 I do want to express my appreciation to my wonderful husband...he has cheerfully volunteered to be the chief cook for the next week. Right now there is a huge vat of his  Vegetable Beef Barley Soup cooking on the stove and the aroma is heavenly! I will return to the kitchen... AC. 
I will share with you some peeks of some of the things I have been working on for the show.
I have been working on some Thanksgiving and Christmas themed collages...these are lots of fun to do!

Banners...these are 2 snowman banners I've most recently been putting together...

(This one is actually 5 panels...Pinterest has been invaluable for the vintage images I love to use!)

(The "joy" die cut is from Dear Lillie, here)
Small art boards...

(This is 5X7 and the image was cut twice and layered.)

David helped with the fork project...

Bending the forks so that they stand level is a little tricky, but he did a great job!
Perfect as stands for the art boards!

OK...just some peeks for now! Hope you enjoy!

Your craft show projects are wonderful! Love those vintage images. The bent forks are a novel idea.


The JOY banner is very sweet! You certainly have been busy and I hope you do very well at the craft show!

Your work is always so meticulous...I love all the attention to detail!
The collages are fun, and the 'in the meadow' banner is sweet. My very favorites are the JOY banner and the Ice Skates art board. Wonderful!
The fork stand is a popular idea. My friend Patricia made some for our show too!

Loving the peeks. I wish we lived closer, so we could come to the show. I really like the Christmas art board. I know you showed it to me before, but I just now realized that all the outside squares have the green plaid paper. I think that's what really makes the squares pop.

Everything looks wonderful! Hope you sells lots of things.
