Almost There!

Eeep! Tomorrow is the day for the Kinton Country Antique Faire!
This afternoon, my mom and I loaded up the 12-passenger van (that thing is quite handy when it comes to hauling anything and everything and everyone), and headed down the hill to set things up for the bazaar. 
This morning, I was still painting display pieces, cutting business cards, and creating a banner for the table, and assembling the clothes rack. Thank goodness for family because I probably would have been a wreck if I had to do it all by myself.  
Yesterday, my brother whipped together the display pieces for the pillowcases. We repurposed the sides of the old crib that we (still) had in the attic, and he designed the base pieces to prop up the crib. They're rather ingenious if I do say so myself. I owe my brother a plate of cookies. He's requested snickerdoodles.
The other night, I had created some templates for my di-cut machine, but the machine needed to be realigned. I didn't have time to dedicate to that, so this morning I pulled out some brown paper that I use for pattern templates and sketched out the design. Went over it all with a fat sharpie, and that was done.  
Once I finished setting up, I took a deep breath and looked around at what others were working on. I love how everyone's booth has a different personality, and everyone has put some much time and effort into creating their miniature shops. 
Are you able to make it? There will be great food, live music, amazing vendors, and me of course. ;)

Until next time!

Upcoming Bazaar

Hello all! While my summer has been an absolutely crazy one, I still managed to squeeze some sewing into the mix, but it hasn't been what I was expecting to work on. This coming Sunday (the 11th), I'll be attending my first craft bazaar as a vendor! In spare moments, My sister and I have been working on all sorts of goodies for the booth, and here's a sneak peak for you of the pre-bazaar chaos! ;)

You can find more information here. Hope to see you there!

Until next time!
