O'fallon craft fair this weekend

Much to post today. I have been putting together hat/scarf sets for the craft fair. I just really really hope people are more in a buying mood for this event. We are in the Christmas shopping season so I am hopeful.

katie bag

Here's something I have been putting off for a few weeks. One of the girls at work wanted me to make a bag for her four year old to use at trick or treat. I was afraid it was going to look too cluttered, because she wanted her name, a pumpkin, and a ghost all on one bag. The ghost is sneaking around the back. I'm pretty pleased.

meet Gypsy!

So I brought home another cat. So sue me! Julie at the bank where I work told us about a couple of cats that were dumped off at her father in law's farm. He told her to find homes for the cats or he was going to shoot them. Come on.. I had to help out. Then they tried to make me feel guilty for not taking both of them. Geez. This one makes three cats in my house. We have reached full cat capacity. I spent all day trying to get rid of all of the fleas on this one. She's cute though. What can I say?


Lebanon Craft fair was a bust. We got there a little late and that set the tone for the whole day. By the time I got set up, I was covered in sweat. The weather was freakishly hot and most of my merch was scarves and hats. None of my purses sold. I think I sold to four people all day. I shouldn't feel too bad because all of the other vendors we talked to said it was the worst year for sales ever. I didn't even bother taking a picture of the booth. Amy and I are hopeful for the O'fallon show... it's indoors and pretty close to Christmas.
