Crafeteria III-Yikes!

Just four days remain until my craft fair debut and your last days to enter the Peace 2008 bracelet giveaway! I'm equal parts excited, eager, and anxious. Did I mention exhausted? I was certainly bred for smart work not hard work. I'm sure I mentioned how quickly I become disillusioned once the conceptual tasks have been completed. I'm so over making shit, I could just scream!

I have been able to counteract some of the monotonous mechanics by incorporating creative display ideas along the way. All of which are easily transitioned to meet my workspace storage needs. I don't think I'll be making a regular run of craft fairs, but there's certainly never enough pretty in the workspace.

Here is what became of my pillow making debut, shipping tags, velvet ribbon, and some lovely stick pins (my favorite part of sewing) I scored at Jo-Ann lately; a hair jewelry display.

As this venture quickly comes to a close, I can only hope it's successful enough to afford me an opportunity to shift gears and devote my energies towards completing my first perzine. Yes, that much has been finalized; it will undoubtedly be a perzine. Swollen, calloused fingers crossed.

Is this your craft fair debut or a debut at this particular craft fair? If you are getting you cherry popped, hold on tight for the ride. It's a blast. If it's awkward at first don't give up eventually you'll reach your peak.

Make lots and lots of money and have lots and lots of fun. Check out this checklist for things to have.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Thought I'd drop by and say Hi! Love your way with words! I'd love to express myself with the depth and ease you do! Makes reading the snippets of blog life interesting!
Good luck at your craft fair!

Your display is seriously cool. A lot of people overlook this step...a shame since it's so important.

Take lots of pics of your booth space for us!

I'm so glad you commented on my blog today. I looked and looked for you for the last couple of weeks. I remembered your blog and your photo but I didn't remember that I discovered you through my comment section! So today when I hit the URL of your comment, there you were!

I know what you mean about getting sick of making stuff. I made pincushions for my friends last year and I thought I'd go nuts at the end. I only made six. Can't imagine getting ready for a craft show. Hope you sell a ton!

Hey! Good luck with the show. I like what you've done for your displays so far. I'm sure you'll do well - people come to these events to spend, and you have a beautiful product.

looking forward to hearing all about it...

yep, the displays look really nice. there's always a certain neatness about your work (displays and paper crafts) that i appreciate.

"I'm so over making shit, I could just scream!"

i know that feeling!

wishing you all the best. :-D

I think a good display is the siren call at a craft fair. If you just plop it on the table, I might not do much but stroll on by....

Best of luck!
