My Mom and I hosted a craft show at my house over the weekend. My Mom used to do craft shows with my older sister back in the 90's but this was new territory for me. Although I have recently developed an interest in all things crafty I have little craft experience to speak of. We came up with the idea at the end of September sitting in the garage during our garage sale but we didn't really REALLY decide to go for it until around Halloween. So, basically 6 weeks to throw the whole thing together - and that included actually MAKING all of the crafts!!! Talk about a crash course for this girl who, two months ago, didn't know one end of a glue gun from the other! Anyway, my Dad (who will be 80 years old in March) put up a bunch of signs for us (in the snowing 20 degrees weather - thank you Dad!) and my husband made homemade cookies and hot apple cider and kept the fireplace going as we nervously opened the doors! I think the snow kept some people away but we did have some visitors throughout the weekend and most of them actually bought something! Really? Something I made. You actually want. to. pay. money. for. something. I. made? Really? Get out!
We even had a drawing to give away some fresh cut trees that we grew on our property! We had them on the porch as people came in the front door. :)
Here are a few snippets of our "craft shop".....
Thanks for stopping by!
I am linking up at the following parties. Won't you join me?
I am a fashionably clueless stay-at-home mommy, married to my one true love for 18 years. We have a 9 year old son, a 7 year old daughter and one angel baby. We also have two kitties (Sherman who is 18 1/2 years old and Casper who is 13.) I am a recovering perfectionist, who loves white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and watching Wednesday night tv. If lovin' The Middle, Modern Family and Cougar Town is wrong, then I don't wanna be right. So, cozy up to your computer in your most comfty pajamas and fuzziest slippers, and join me as I fumble through this thing called motherhood (hopefully, with some amount of dignity and grace.) And if anything personifies digity and grace, it's definitely flannel and fuzzy slippers.
