Successful Weekend!

Okay...I have decided in order to help me destress, instead of freaking about what I have NOT yet done for the aforementioned craft show, I will share what I DID get accomplished.

Now mind you, I will certainly not be LOW on inventory for the show...I'm just trying to get some items that I think will sell because of our demographics here. I will be bringing everything from both my shops (Mama's Little Monkeys and Fleur De Ink.) as well as many items not listed that I either made or wholesaled from other handmade artists. (I LOVE my Etsians!!)

Sooooo, what did I do this weekend? Well, I cut and prepped about 20 bibs, almost done prepping about 12 more, and then I'll have to put them together. This may not sound like much, but I'm very anal about my bibs. I use interfacing on them if they're cotton, and I sew the velcro on so that you don't see the under side of the stitching on the bib, all very time consuming.

I also made a trip to Hancocks and FORGOT to buy the LSU colored buttons for the baby dresses (lovingly 80% made by my friend Katrina!), so I'll HAVE to go back this week..(wink, wink) and I also need to pick up some snaps....I like to pimp out my bibs sometimes with snaps instead of Velcro! :)

I also got some recycled crayons made, just need to get them wrapped up. So that task is DONE!

Of course, the usual cleaning, kids, and computer time.

And I even got to spend a nice Saturday night with DH and friends, grown up talk, grown up drinks, and relaxing!

So there is of course tons to do, finish the dresses, mostly this week finish the sewn items, and next work we'll move on to soap! BUT I WILL SUCCEED!! I WILL WIN!!!!

Sooooooo I promise lots of pics when it's all done and I do my practice set up the week before!

GO HANDMADE!!
