Craft Fair #3 Review & Craft Fair #4!

Hello!  Our third craft fair was at the Rubberstamp Expo again and I think I like this venue better than the 99 Ranch fair.  Mostly I guess because there is light!  It's kind of important that people can actually see what they are buying!  I will be signing up for the November 15th Rubberstamp Expo as well.  Not sure if that will be my last fair for this year or if I should go into December.  I think my hubby is getting burnt out!  He misses his Sunday naps. 

It is nice talking with everyone and seeing familiar faces.  It's nice to talk about stamping and crafting with others who share that same interest.  People ask me about my coloring and all I can say is "practice!"  If you look at my early cards, they didn't look how they do now.  I think my style has changed and evolved.  Less papers and more about the image than the background. 

These are a couple of cards I was trying to complete for last week's fair but ran out of time.  Isn't that the story of life?  Never enough time to do everything.  I am trying to finish up 4 more cards and also make 24 tags.  Haha, that makes me laugh as I type this.  Wow, 24 tags?  Geez.  And they are shaker tags too!  What am I thinking?  But I think I can do it!  Positive thinking!

I will be at our 4th craft fair this Sunday, October 25th at the Hawaii Kai Retirement Center from 11 am to 3 pm.  I have never been to this fair so I'm not sure what to expect.  I'm not even sure exactly where this is.  I'll have to check it out before that day so I know where we're going.

I hope if you live around Hawaii Kai, you'll come out and visit me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

That is so cute about your hubby getting burnt out! Hint maybe you need to bring him a folding lounge chair so he can take his quick naps when it's not so busy at the fairs..LOL! You're talented so I know you can finish all those last minute projects on time....

Oh this is one of my favorite Christmas images, great coloring and lovin' the CAS designs. I'm sure you will finish what you can and if not, something to add to the shop. =) Good luck at the fair!

Wish I could fly out for the fair. Your items look great. Maybe I'll see you at a fair when I do get to Honolulu.
