Craft Show Withdrawal!!!

My first craft show is over and done with it! It was lots of fun and I made some money. Not sure if it was "enough" to make the hours and hours and hours of work ahead of time worth it but I did have fun doing all the prep so maybe?! Hubby isn't so sure, but what's he know :) Just kidding! Below are some pictures from my practice set up the night before. My best sellers were the journals with beaded pens ($5) and the tic tac purses ($1). I pretty much sold one of almost everything else. This was a very small craft show (only the 2nd year) and got pretty slow towards the end. I was happy with my first outing, though. I will be posting the items that have not sold in my Etsy Store. I was contemplating another show at a local elementary school but I think with my sister's baby coming around that same date, I might be over committing myself. Still haven't decided for sure but I do need to make a decision very soon. Hmmmm?! Well, I have been working on some other stuff since the show ended but I will post those projects tomorrow :) Thanks for looking! I am going to try really hard to get back to posting almost every day. I have missed blogging and and blogging friends!

It sure looks great!! You must have put a lot of work into this and if you had fun and sold a bit then it was worth it. All the left overs will sell at a later date or on Etsy right!

OMG, you are amazing!!! I can't believe your gorgeous setup for the craft show! I am frantically working on my last one this Saturday and scrounging for some last minute ideas. Thanks, also, for nominating me for the blog award! How sweet of you. I may not get to that until next week, but I will. I'm so glad you found my blog so I could "find" yours!

Oh, and I LOVE the upside down birthday idea! How stinkin' clever is that?!! Will make a note of that for next year!

loads of hard work has been put in to this - I can see!
