Oh The Bazaars I Have Known

So I think that I have recovered from the madness that I create for myself when I craft my brains out for holiday craft bazaars...but let me be clear....I love every stink'n minute of it.  Yep, every glue gun burnt finger, glittered covered, car packing, early morning coffee drinking, like~minded people meeting, creative idea flowing minute of it.

Since I tend to be a "visual" kind of girl....let me share a peek at this year's antics...



Dicken's carolers set the mood...

You can see my daughter and I in the mirror...click, click, clinking away...

 

I love to decorate our space to within an inch of it's life...



The pillows were hung on a ladder with care...



In hopes that the customers soon would be there...

 

Pinecones...and some needles...

 

Antique doll bed layered with burlap and drop cloth pillows of LOVE...



I could climb right in and take a long winter's nap...



Ain't it the truth...

 

This "tree" is my favorite holiday doodle...
I constantly doodle this pine tree and any piece of paper at hand...

 

Behind the scenes...I can't stop sewing...

That pincushion is a tad scary!




This just about says it all...

Thanks for spending some time in my neck~of~the~woods
and allowing me to share a bit of my "happy place"...

Have a happy, happy Wednesday.

It sounds like you had a GREAT time at the Bazaar....hope you sold a bunch!!! I just LOVE your booth! It is the kind of booth that would draw me right in!♥

I did notice the two of you in the first picture and just thought someone else took the picture you are showing....I didn't realize it was a mirror...lol.

Hope Abbie gets feeling better quickly and you don't end up with the crud! Try to stay warm and I hope by this weekend you get big, fluffy flakes of snow! Our high today is only supposed to hit 34* so it is pretty dang cold here too!! Add in our never-ending wind chill and brrrrrrrrrr

I LOVED your creative creations! I'm just like you. . . I work like a dog in the fall for the sales I participate in....sometimes they're good, sometimes they're not...especially in this economy...but I LOVE to do it. It all really seems worth while when the booth is first set up and stocked. It's such a sense of pride. Then, when good folks stop by and start buying and making wonderful comments about the items and the display....well, I'm all ready to go home and start sewing again!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday!
