Craft Fair

OMG, I'm so nervous for tomorrow. I'm participating in a local craft/vendor fair. I really didn't give myself a lot of time to prepare either. Here are a few items that I'm taking:

What do think? I have enough of each to make a decent display, but I'm worried that I won't have a lot of variety. I'll make sure to try to have a few examples of my super cute invitations and banners. I'm thinking these will have to be more of a "made to order" item.

Ahh, I can't believe how nervous I am. I mean, I've been selling my stuff on Etsy for 2 years, no biggie right?

Lingering Projects/Vinyl/Craft Fair

Hey everyone,

I know it's been a while. Things are starting to pick up and I'm preparing to participate in my first real craft fair on June 1st. (Yikes!)

So I've been busy wrapping up projects that have been lingering. Here are two:

This is my very first vinyl project. Everyone says the magic settings are 3-3-3 (speed, pressure, blade depth), but found that mine were more of a 3-2-2. This is on it's way to KY where it's going to be part of a cooler and cup set.

This project isn't completely finished yet. It's missing something and I haven't figured out what that was yet. These are going to be birthday cards for X-ray technicians. The inside says, "Have an x-cellent birthday".

In preparation for this craft fair, I've been scouring the internet looking for the perfect projects to make and take with me. I'm thinking of having a few Father's Day themed things, general summer, end of school/thank you items for teachers (school lets out here on June 13th), post-it note holders, etc.

Any seasoned craft fair veterans out there that would like to share some of their "successful" items?

Stay Crafty,
