Finally Rested & PPA13!!

I am so sorry for the delay in posting, man has it been a few crazy days. So what have I been up to?? Here are some pics- BTW, DON’T FORGET TO ENTER YOUR COMMENT IN FOR THE BLOG CANDY DRAWING!!! You have until Oct. 23rd to enter ANY comment for a chance to win. See more details here.
I had a Craft Fair in Live Oak this past weekend, I shared the booth space/fee with my friend that does embroidery. I had one half of the booth and she had the other. I packed mine FULL of all sorts of stuff.
This is my friends side, she had all types of stuff from diaper totes to cinch bags and more. Her items were really cute and she was personalizing them with names if you wanted too.
It took me 3-1/2 hours to set everything up and get it all placed where I wanted it. I just pop in my ear buds and listen to music the entire time and the task goes fairly quickly. I know the other vendors setting up probably don’t enjoy the dance show they sometimes see though…
I had things from hair bows to handmade cards out for people, I wish I had thought to take better more UP-CLOSE pics of all the things there from my booth, but my batteries ran out for my digital and so all I had was my phone. Sorry the pics are so grainy.
This is a new item I made. These are candy bar covers, somewhat patterned after the ones I showed on this blog a few posts back. I wanted a spooky theme for them though and did a little searching and found these cute things! I have only seen them done as bags but I changed it a little and made body-less heads, totally appropriate for the season, don’t ya think? My son LOVES vampires and is dying for me to show him how to make these!
Here is his cousin FRANKENSTEIN!! Man doesn’t he look sweet though. I finally had to pull the candy bar half way out so people would know what they were, I left the description tag that goes on the shelf at home, smart move- huh??

I made these for the season too, I used a combination of rub-ons and punches and of course- CANDY!!!

I originally bought these to make pumpkin faces with, using our Definitely Decorative line “Pumpkin Expressions”. BUT when I got the vinyl I realized real quick that the pails were too SMALL! Darn!!! I think those would have been SO cute if they had been the right size…oh well.
Thanks for stopping by, and I am hopeful to post again tonight if time permits. Don’t forget to leave your comment and see you again tomorrow!
