craft show updates

I have some photos for you from the craft fair I did at College Greens. And some info on where I will be this weekend. But I think you will like some pics first and learn a little bit about who I met there!

This is Colleen, the College Greens craft show organizer. She made these super cute Christmas stocking for a vintage quilt that she had in her home. Only $7! No, I did not buy one, but I did buy something else from her that I will show you, sometime.

Say hello to Claire from Little Lovelies. Also the brains behind Glitter and Grunge and Handmade Parade. Did I remember everything? She had the cutest table set up with these pretty feather trees, hung with handmade Christmas ornaments. See her blog if you would like to join a crafty ornament swap.

My sweet and supportive neighbors came out to see me. Maggie, Katie, Marilyn, and me (Katie again).

My booth neighbor Tina Leanne Jewelry and Fine Arts. We arranged a swap, and I got the cutest earrings made with silver circles and amber stones. I have been wearing them almost every day since!

Some of my things from the booth, you can tell what a beautiful day it was.

I even ran into my friend Maria from high school. Isn't that cool? She has a great business, Plants N Rocks, where she sells succulents. Most are in these cute small containers and some are in larger arrangements. I love succulents because they can last longer than most plants without water. And I am really bad about watering my outside potted plants.

This is Sharon from Flights of Fancy. She takes vintage suitcases of various shapes and sizes and decoupages them with different cut out pictures. So the suitcase looks like it has traveled the globe.

And this crafty girl is Stacey Ball from bouton blue where she makes crafty accessories with vintage buttons. I bought some little hair pins and and ring from her, it will all make into my girl's stocking at Christmas time. And the extra cool thing about Stacey is that she has a second crafty business, Sinnet Ball, making toys and accessories for dogs. Cute huh!

And last (but not least of course!) is my aprons. Don't they look pretty? It was such a nice morning!

If you are interested in learning more about any of these talented ladies and their info isn't listed, go ahead and email me and I can pass it along to you. Thanks for looking!!

Looks like you had a great time. It's always nice to mingle with other crafters as well. Please tell me, who does NOT love your sock monkey apron?? It's the best! Is that in your etsy shop? It would probably be scooped up there...
