Prepping for Spring Craft Fair

Happy March, Lovelies! I hope your month is off to a great start. I'm back with my report on how I did on my February goals. The biggest goal was to submit my application for the Spring Craft Show to be held in May. I did complete my cute little red riding hood and made a few Valentines gifties, but the bulk of my attention was spent crafting inventory and prepping my displays.

These are the photos I submitted with our application plus a few more that my sister-in-law took on Super Bowl Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll be accepted! They review the applications on March 6th. Please wish me luck!

Enjoy the photos and I'll give you the goal report at the end:

The full view


Zooming on jars, cans and bottles- most of them painted with chalk paint and decoupaged with napkins. Deb makes the beautiful prayer flags- I know they're going to sell!

This little pillow is our whole philosophy- redeeming the discarded and making it beautiful.

These cans are pencil holders and the ones with moss are candle holders. I followed a tutorial on YouTube from Mark Montano to make them and I used digital downloads from Ephemera's Vintage Garden for the imagery- I think they're gorgeous!

I also did quite a bit of paper crafting inspired by Amber (Lyric Lover Crafts) on YouTube. 

I love this collection with the black and white florals and plan to make lots more! I also want to make more of these spool fairies- they are just so sweet.

Simple chalk painted lotion dispenser pumps.

I love these little paper bird house plant stakes and I've made four so far. I learned this craft from my paper crafting friend in Denmark, Pernille.

I think the pink roses are my favorite! Do you see how each flag in Deb's banner has a different virtue? So sweet!

I have been having so much fun revamping these wood hangers. From pedestrian to magical! I say that they are hangers your clothes would be proud to be seen with. Wouldn't they be wonderful for photo shoots or for hanging your outfit for work- what motivation to get dressed in the morning!

And a couple of sweet flower pots. We want the booth to feel like an enchanted garden and I plan to make more moss balls and tussie mussies. I am also making over sized pink coffee filter roses that we'll frame out our booth with. 

So my goals for February were:
  1. Submit application for craft fair- DONE!
  2. Finish craft booth displays- Almost done- few more coffee filter flowers!
  3. Four blog posts- I made three.
  4. Join a Facebook group for California crafters - I did, but it didn't really help me the way I thought it would. I wanted leads for good craft fairs in my area and help in navigating the process of obtaining my sellers permit.
  5. Lose four pounds- I lost one. :-(
  6. Make a $500 credit card payment- Made a $1,000 payment!
So, good month, all in all. I'll let you know what I hear from the organizers of the fair! Happy making, Friends!
