Well I can't believe its been a week since I last wrote in here!!! that tells you I was very busy and exhausted by the time the show was done!!! but I had a wonderful time and made what I made 4 years ago and it was good...Too bad 20% of it had to go to the show on top of the entry fee...but there were lots of folks that came to find me..most didn't buy anything this time..but it was a nice compliment to hear that they loved my stuff...I had my friend Shirley help me set up my stuff and she does such a great job...it was nice having her there for the girl talk too..:) I sold things that I didn't think would sell and things that I thought would sell didn't..go figure..you can never figure those out..I did sell 22 of my 48 coffee cozys.. so now I will haul them down to the store and put them on consignment and they take 30% commission..I am searching for other shows to do next year that will be more profitable for me and no commission..although I will probably stick with this one as it is so much fun..I also got to meet a fellow blogger, Annie of Olde Annie Primitives and her sweet Hubby...oh my gosh did she surprise me...and I didn't even take any photos..but she gave me a wonderful little treat 3 stars that smelled like wassil..they are yummy...they are on my trees as I speak..we talked and she shopped...it was so much fun tlaking to her..felt like we had been friends for years..so next year on a nice day..we are going shopping in her neck of the woods...Thanks Annie for making my day...it was great meeting you...yeah crafters are the best!!!:>)
only sold one sign..and sold 6 of my twilight pillows..they were another hit..Sunday was our busiest day..but it was all stuff under $10 that sold..but it added up...
one of the highlights of the show was a gal that brought in her miniature horse named Icey! she is a cutie and I just had to get her picture with my hobby horse..she kept trying to nuzzle its nose and they looked so cute together
here she is smiling for the camera...her mama has taught her to smile, yawn, do an elephant face, she can cross her legs, sit, stay, stomp her foot on the ground and bow...
here she is taking her bow
and she is house broken...thats her mama getting her to bow..she even got her photo taken with santa claus..
this one is 24x24 by 7 inches deep..
okay these next two photos are of 2 cabinets that I purchased from a guy named Steve Boyce..he does wonderful work and great primitives..the yellow/cream ones are the ones I am getting..he actually had them in red but they are going in my "red" dining room..so he is going to paint over them and distress them up so some of the red peeks through..I get them in about 2 weeks..he has other orders he will be bringing up our way..his website is Honu Kreations.. you will love his stuff.. I can't wait to deck them out with holiday decor and then with my regular stuff too..click on the photos...oh I am giddy with delight..
Here is santa with a baby..I wasn't getting very good photos in here..must be the lights..
Here is Santa dancing with Janice...she owns the farm/barn we were in..She is the sweetest lady ever and made sure we had everything we needed to set up...We had the best bunch of crafters in our barn...and just had a great time..are crafters just the best?
This great guy named Ron Smith had the greatest stuff made out of you name it, it was on it..here is a little dashound that did tricks..
when pigs fly..out of a helium balloon tank
a riding lawn mower..He has (it wasn't there) a cat sitting with a frying pan in its hand/paw and the other paw holds the lid above the pan..its a bird feeder..I told him I wanted one..it would be too cute in my front yard..here is his website.. Recycled Ranch Relics. He gave me the best idea for what to make next year..so I am going to make 2 of them for my nephews for christmas...and see how it goes..will show you photos when I get them done...
Aren't these baskets just the cutest? a gal that was across from my booth makes these wonderful baskets..so she and I did some trading..if you look at the first photo you will see a huge snowman in front on the ground...she had her eye on him..so we traded up..I got these 3 baskets..will use them with my dolls for next year..the little round one has a smiling pumpkin...
and I got this huge basket..it measures 17 inches wide by 11 inches tall by 12 inches wide..I love the detail and colors..but wait...thats not all..
she also gave me this stair basket..and it is huge!!..I have a santa and some pillows in it right now..good stuff...I think I got the better end of the deal..so I started slipping in stuff when she wasn't looking..:)
Monday..I spent the day cleaning the house top to bottom..and it felt so good to get it cleaned and mopped..and then onto the holiday decorating..I am almost finished..still have to get a few more things done..but will post those tomorrow...here is Pody lynn sitting in a bin in a box..all snug as a little bug..content as can be..
here she is cleaning and pruning..:)
and here is little sunny buns..sitting next to the fire with one of my christmas decorations..made me smile..;) it has been so cold here that all the out door kittys want to be in by the fire..they sleep in the garage but its not insulated yet..they have their kittys bed and last night we left the bomballa lit so they had some heat..one of the outdoor kittys stayed with us last night..and guess where he is right now..by the fire..he knows where his bread is buttered..;) they all do..Yesterday I got the pleasure of being at the hair dressers for 7 hours..!!! yes you heard me right..I am so glad I cancelled last week as I just didn't have that kind of time to spend..she colored my hair that was it..but she did it differently then what you are supposed too and it took forever for the blonde to pull up cause it was so dark to begin with..cause she did the all over color first..I didn't say anything as I thought she was just doing it differently since she had never colored my hair before...well she won't be doing it that way again..she felt so bad and kept apologizing for it...she fed me half her lunch..and I never had to pay a dime for my hair color..it would have cost me $100 bucks...so I got it FREE..and I wouldn't have paid for it anyway..it turned out nice anyway..but there was a bit of breakage in one spot..but not noticable..and they sent me home with protein treatments..so it was all good and I will go back to her..as she made it right...I was her only appt yesterday and she worked for free..I did give her a tip though...but geez..then I had to rush home forget the stops I had to make..I had my church christmas get together and I had to go home and make a dozen cookies and wrap my white elephant gift up..made it on time and we had a great time...so today..I must get my running around done and finish decorating... but I have to tell you about my giveaway!!!
