Salem Baptist Preschool 2013 Craft Fair

Hey guys,

I don't know if anyone's noticed, but I've been kinda quiet lately. That's partially because the girls have been tracked out for the past 2.5 weeks. I've been EXTRA quiet lately because I mistakenly signed up to participate in a craft fair (my first one in years and years) during the girls' track out and now here I am, the night before it, crafting/taking pix/marketing like crazy. I'd been feeling kinda crafty for a while and when this opportunity popped up, I thought why the heck not?! *sigh* had I actually realized it was going to take place on 2 of the 3 of the girls' last days of track out, I'm pretty sure I would have passed. Oh well. I'm goin' all in now.

Don't worry, I haven't been neglecting the girls toooo much. In fact, had I not taken them to Marbles Kids Museum, Paint Your Pot, scheduled lots of play dates and all sorts of other things, I'd be much better of now. Instead, I still have a load of work ahead of me to get ready for a 7:30am start tomorrow. Thank goodness Mom#2 came into town last week to occupy the girls while I occupied myself with craftier things. :)

So here's the 411 on the fair itself:

And here are some pics of the havoc it's wreaked in my bonus room and some of the stuff I'll be selling. Stop on by if you are in the area and wanna say hi! I'd love the company and promise not to make you buy a thing. :) The girls will even be with me for some of the time!

My poor hubby. On the other side of this room is our office where he sometimes works from home. Sorry Sweetie!!


 I think it's safe to say I'm pretty sick of buying and messing w/ ribbon. :)


Here's a collage of just some of the things I'll be selling Thursday and Friday:


Pin It

 Headbands with mix and match, detachable bows!


Used my favorite double-pronged alligator clips.


My model. My goodness, those cheeks are just too yummy for words. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry. It's night, I'm rushed and have bad lighting. 


Sport headbands - they're non-slip!

Tested out repeatedly by my very own little Big Sis. Those cheeks still look pretty darned yummy too, even at the ripe old age of 9. :)

And my most exciting thing: EASYLUNCHBOXES sets!!!

They are mix and match, but here are a couple sets I threw together. Each set includes:
1 EasyLunchbox - your choice of 8 fabulous lid colors
2 Little Dippers (which are leakproof)
2 Silicone cupcake cups
2 Skewers
1 Cloth Napkin
Speaking of cloth napkins, here are 10 different patterns you have to choose from! These will be sold individually as well. :)


That's it! Short and sweet 'cause I gotta get back to work now! :)

I even made a lunch that you can check out here: My Craft Show Lunch :)
