great stuff!

Lovin' it!
Will really went above and beyond,
and Amanda put up with that makeup like a champ

BUT! The clear costume winner had to be miss Toostie!!

Trim usage

kinda hard to see the real beauty of this trim here, but I made a cute belt out of the trim I got last week at Ellen's.

The Craft Show

Although my mom, aunt and I would not describe the craft show as a raving success, we enjoyed ourselves and were able to sell some of our things. I probably sold about 9 cake plates, and that was enough to pay for what it cost me to make all my cake plates, so that's pretty good.
mostly we had fun complimenting each other on what amazing products we have.
these were the cute book-lettes Soo Soo made
I did have help from family in offloading some of my merchandise, thanks Tina!
The booth!
my mom's awesome clocks
all my plates!

nice moves...

Gor-juas! ( Soose got this one)
so happy...
this store is so cool, B. Gover Limited, has a cool anthropologie feel with a lot of industrial antiques

OK everyone!

Great News!
The Taste and See art show is next weekend in
Colleyville and guess who will be selling some crafts!
I am!
along with my mom and my Soo Soo.
I am selling handmade cake plates, and my mom is selling super cool clocks she made, and Soo Soo is selling some paper items like notebooks and journals (all of our stuff is handmade, of course!)
I have been working for a while now and have made about 25 plates to sell, priced $15, $18 and $20 each.
Here is a flyer for the event, at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Colleyville
Oct. 16 and 17.
There will be music, food and wine!
I really hope that some of you decide to come on out for a beautiful Fall day at the craft show...
