The Day After!

redhead-mom1

Well, it is Sunday and I am a happy camper!!!!!!! ( Caution a lot of photos) :)

We had a great time and I met the most wonderful people!!!!

I was there at 5:30 AM to make sure the doors were open, and I snapped a few photos:

Having never done this I had a bit of a problem, but it didn’t seem to matter…..here are a few of my things up close:

It was a fun day!!!!

I got to meet Jennie Matlock of http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/ she is a kick and she has a wonderful family!!!! Jennie, we have to get together again !!!!!! Great lady and my best customer! :

Today I am thinking this was a lot of fun, but Never again!!!! LOL Most of us talked at the end and decided that being in someone else’s show this fall makes more sense….this was just a lot of work! So we will see, we all agreed a show with holiday goodies is more fun to get ready for.

So it is on to Wisconsin!!!!

Eau CLaire 1

Eau Claire Here I come!!!!!!!!! (Happy Dance!) Elizabeth, cute post card huh???? :)

Thanks for coming by!!!!! I don’t know if I will get to post while I am gone, but I will be checking in with all of you often! Take care!!!!!


P.S. I wanted to let anyone who is interested in my sheets of decals to know that I had to increase the price of each sheet. I went thru almost $60.00 worth of in in 10 sheets! They take an enormous amount of ink! So the price per sheet is now $12.00. That is very fair when you add up the price of decal paper, ink amd sealer. Other than the largest one, you get a lot on one sheet. Those of you who already have orders in, I will still honor the $8.00 a sheet of course....

I want to thank everyone who was so responsive about the decals! I am going to have a LOT more to offer soon!!!!! And I will be able to do custom orders also....stay tuned!

Hi Sandy~
I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering how your show went...sounds like it went pretty good. Your table looks awesome with your cheery cloth and your colorful jars, journals and other goodies! I do know how exhausted you are the next day...all of the talking and standing hits you later.
Have a wonderful vacation in Wisconsin...eat lots of cheese ;o) Your postcard is cute..I'm already planning my design.
Take care!

I liked your table best! ♥

It sounds like you had a great time, and you were a success! Whenever I go to shows like that, I never see anything cute like your things! Have fun in Wisconsin. Just a few more hours north, and you'd be in the northwoods, my favorite place in the world!
Happy Monday!

Hi Sandy,

Oh, I haven't been over in awhile to visit. So glad all went well with the show. Your jars look awesome!! Yes, it is a lot of work to get ready for a show. I used to do them with my dear mother-in-law. I made yarn wreaths, and for weeks all I did was wind yarn around pieces of cardboard, then attach them to wire hangers. I didn't sell a lot, and I ended up giving them away a gifts.

Sandy, It was so worth the wait to see your wonderful sale! Had I been there I would have been your only customer! I will definitely take a peek at your shop when you get home for left over goodness! Have a safe trip. Adored your vintage postcard! Elizabeth

Paula Clare said...

Sandy! Your table was too die for...I would have went home with the whole thing! I MUST have one of your jars with a little girl on it...or, if you're out of them, I MUST have the decals containing the little girl...or...or...I WANT! I WANT!

I've been gathering red/aqua goods while I save shekels for the aluminum blinds and toweling toppers...photos as soon as I can!
