My First Show of the Year

I can already read your mind. 

You're thinking," It's October, the year is almost over and this is your FIRST craft show of the year!"
I am excitedly and calmly replying, " Yes, Yes, Yes! "

This has been a SUPER busy year-a milestone birthday, marriage, tracking in and out of a classroom, managing a larger family( it comes with a lot I didn't expect), common core (need I say more), and some stressful health issues (I'll share later when it's all behind me.) 

I really needed to do something a little "crafty" to divert my attention off the whirlwind I'm in , so I decided to join a local church and become a small vendor in their Holiday Bazaar. 

 
 
This is my table. I love the how lime green and red look together.  Red is very eye catching and lime green is just plain cute. 
 
I bought the shelf at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore for 5 bucks.  I gave it a new life with a can of paint. It added height to my table.
 
 I love the giant snowflake.  Yes, it came from a Pinterest pin.  I love it.  It didn't sell, so I'll be making our family initial using my Cricut to place on the center for Christmas.  It will definitely be hanging on my front door soon. (Pictures in two months)
 

 
These chocolate nugget trays sold very well.
 
 
I sold all but one of these.
 
 
These sold out.  Wish I had made more.
 
Overall I did well. I didn't create many items over a buck due to the audience being Young at Heart and the State Fair was in full force. But I had fun~
 
Thanks for stopping by~
