Prepping for Fairs

pigscanflyI LOVE this stamp set!  I don’t know why.  I am not a HUGE pig fan.  But, I just love it!  As I have started to prepare for not only upcoming craft fairs but a Women’s Expo here in a week or so, I just needed this set to be a part of it.  This is a refillable notepad cover (I have the instructions on my blog here:  Anyway, This Little Piggy is a great set.  I will post more of these soon.

I used blender pens to water color in Soft Sky, Powder Pink, Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride.  The notepad cover is Melon Mambo with a Basic Black mat.  I stamped the pig and sentiments in Basic Black Archival.  What do you think of this one?


The past weekend, I have getting ready for craft fair season!  This was the whole reason why I got into Stampin’ Up!  I wasn’t going to blog, I wasn’t going to have clubs, workshops, classes, etc.  I was going to stamp for craft fairs!  LOL!! Ok, so 5 years later, 85 club dates held or more, 30 workshops or more, 30 classes had or more… *laughing* and I am still doing craft fairs!!  Well, I love them!  I really do!  Normally, I wait until October to start stamping projects… not this year!  This year, I started early!  I started in August!! UNHEARD OF!!  LOL

Anyway, here’s a peek – what they are is irrelevant  LOL!  Most people guess anyway!  I am just super proud of myself.  Not only did I use my sewing machine for the second time, but I have made enough little hats to possibly get me through two of the craft fairs.  I say that tongue in cheek because when something this adorable is on my table, it’s gone!  I am planning on making even more hats but will have to keep checking the remnants sections at the craft stores.
