Preparing for Craft Days

Thought I'd drop in quickly and give everyone an update on what's been going on.

First off, I've been busily preparing for Mistletoe Market which is coming in just TWO WEEKS! I have many projects I've been working on till the wee hours of the night. Everything is hand-stamped in some form or the other. Here's a sneak peek of something I'm going to carry, giant book marks. Aren't these going to make great Smiley's for someone??

I've also been trying to update the Mistletoe Market website with new vendor information and all their links. They'll be a whopping 115 vendors this year. WOW! I can't wait to see everything set up. Last year I was so busy during the event I didn't have time to shop myself!

In addition to preparing for Mistletoe Market, I've been lining up some classes for the holidays. This Friday I'm attending Judson Baptist Church in Walker, LA for a monthly crop (as I mentioned in my previous post).

Add to that preparation for the holidays, my 'real' job, preparing for my sons reconciliation and keeping the kids entertained on the weekend, I've been busy. Needless to say, my coffee pot and my giant container of Folgers is getting well used.

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a giant wash basin I found at a local thrift store. It was love at first sight. Cracked and stained porcelain, the intricate detail of the images inside, just gorgeous. I plan on using it to display some of my goods at the Market. I've gotten REALLY creative when it comes to displaying items.

Isn't the detail beautiful?

OK, it's back to my Stampin' Studio (aka, my dining room turned craft room). Sadly I have filtered into my living room as well.
