Photo Fun!

Today was photoshoot day! I needed new photos for my webs store so Jason (my wonderful husband) pulled out his camera and started clicking away. He got some great shots and I already started putting some up. But while he was shooting, we had some fun too! So here's a few goofy shots from this morning.

This is Nani, one of our cats. She had to help out. The other cat was behind the curtain.

She spotted Shadow, the other cat, walking by. As soon as this was taken Nani jumped up and ran to play.

My first craft fair!

Saturday was my first ever craft fair! I had a blast at it! It was in Kissimmee, FL and was put on by the Kissimmee Main Street. It was a smaller craft fair since it was in its first year. I didn't make to many sales unfortunately but I think I did pretty well considering it was my first fair and it was small. I sold Christmas planners, altered notebooks, post it stands, cards and bookmarks. My cards and bookmarks kept flying away from the wind so I had to put them away. I'm going to look for some way to display them and keep them safe from the wind for next time. Enjoy some pictures from yesterday below.

The cards. I didn't put a lot out. I really need a better way to display them though. I don't think they called enough attention to themselves.

Post it stands. I had a lot of people express interest in them, just not a lot of buyers. I think that had more to do with the fact that there wasn't a lot of people there. They are currently listed in my webs store.

 Yes that is me in the background wearing shorts. I was also wearing a short sleeved shirt and sandals. The benefits of living in Florida year round. :) Also, those are the Christmas planners and notebooks. I had a few buyers for these and I think I may have some custom orders coming in soon.

All in all, it was a good day. I learned a lot and I have some ideas for changes for my next craft fair. I can't wait for it either!

Long time, no post!

Wow! I haven't blogged in a while! I'm pretty bad at updating this thing, but I'm hoping to get better. I've been doing lots of crafty things in the last month. I have a craft fair coming up on the 20th of November so I'm busy busy busy! I'm making Christmas planners, post it stands, bookmarks and of course cards. I think I will do pretty well. This is the first time this specific craft fair is happening so I'm just hoping for a good turnout. I promise I will post some pictures later but right now I'm off to celebrate my birthday today!
