Back to my craft room

Grandma's little buddy went home yesterday- it sure is quiet around here (and a little sad) after having my kids home for a week.


So, back to the craft room.  Today I have been working on orders from my craft shows and a few from my Etsy shop. These guys are already for their new homes so I need to make a few phone calls and find a couple of boxes tomorrow.   I am anxiously waiting for deliveries from JoAnn's and Hancock Fabrics-did some online fabric shopping this weekend!  Off to cut out some more projects.

OFG Holiday Celebration starts Monday Nov. 26

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, and turkey- I know I did! How fast the day comes and goes...at least the memories last.
 I imagine a few of you did some Black Friday shopping to kick off the Christmas Shopping Season. Ready for some relaxing, couch shopping? The OFG Etsy Team is proud to announce a celebration created with all new items for your shopping enjoyment. Below is a sample of treasures. To see all of the items, go to Etsy and enter SOCOFG in the search bar, then be prepared to be amazed at all of the wonderful items.
This is the perfect way to get a unique item for that special person on your list! Happy shopping!

Another Successful Show...

My last show for the season is finished---it turned out to be the biggest one I have ever had! There were several last minute shoppers and I forgot to take a picture before I packed, but here is all I had left. Thank You to all of my wonderful customers!
I need to remember to leave the fall stuff home next year as I only sold 3 or 4 pieces. Shoppers have definitely moved on to Christmas!
Its time for a little rest and relaxation tonight. Tomorrow I will need to reorganize, maybe clean some house to get ready for Thanksgiving and some family time. One of my daughters is already home for the week and the other one is coming with her family on Wednesday...going to have some Grandma time, some fine dining and some crazy shopping this week! It doesn't get any better!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone...Deb

Show #2- Winterfest

Its time for my second and last show of the season. I love doing shows but they are soooo much work.
Here is a picture of one side of my booth this morning before the show opened...
...and here is the other side. Stuff is pretty packed in and it is full under the tables, too.

The weather was awesome and traffic was brisk and...
...7 hours later this is how it looks. It is challenging trying to spread stuff out so it looks like there is still something there! Nice problem to have!
Here is another angle. I think it could be a pretty long day tomorrow. Wonder if anyone would think it strange if I had my machine there and did some sewing?

Awesome shows like this is what makes them addicting!

Gonna have a busy week replacing items in my Etsy shop!

Take care,
Deb

Craft Show Booth Pictures

Wow- I can't believe how long its been since I have added a new post. Time flies when you are getting ready for craft shows! Here are a few pictures from my booth last Saturday. 

Some Fall and Halloween items with some cats...
A variety of snowmen... big, little, and some with lights...
...and more snowmen.
It was fun to have some BIG guys back. I haven't been able to make them since Walmart quit selling the Morning Glory stuffing.  I am soooo glad its back!


  




  Today I have been working on kitties- they continue to be a hit online and at my shows. I need to sew a few more cheeks and then get some hats and scarves on them. 

 And then there are some more snowmen to finish for another show next weekend.
I love doing shows and visiting with customers, it is so good for the ego! :0)
More pictures soon....Deb
