Wine bottle decoration --- hostess gifts


So right now I am lovin' these Lil' cuties.  One of my favorite customers asked me to come up with a simple hostess gift.  When I showed her these, she was thrilled (as am I).  Of course the ideas are Rolling for more of these Lil' guys ☺️.

Craft shows


Ahhhh I love them!  Now I know lots of crafters hate them, but I indeed enjoy them very much.  I like to people watch, I like the interaction, I like listening to the chatter, the giggles & tears. 
I like setting up, taking it down & then reviewing my notes when I get home.  I have a whole process I go through.  


One of the best things is the friends I meet along the way.  When you have been doing this as long as I have...this is my 9th year.  You become friends with the other crafters.  We share tips, upcoming shows etc.  Already two shows into the season & I'm looking forward to more...may 1st & then a Home show on the 15th....
I would do one every weekend but I don't like missing my girlies activities & plus we camp a lot so it's just not possible. 
One of the things I did not like was trying to find an outfit for the shows...now I made myself some personalized shirts...got myself a show uniform 👍🏼.  Problem solved!
