I had a great time this weekend. I only made $20.00 at the craft fair but my friends and I had fun for a spur of the moment decision. Our high school craft fair isnt the biggest event of the year but it is a fun social time and donations go to the Outing Club.
On Sunday I went shopping at Ocean State Job Lots and the Dollar Tree and spent a fortune! I found so many inexpensive items to alter for next year. I found scarves, gloves, candles etc. I really should be getting my craft room clean so I can start all these projects.
I am trying to rearrange my craft room as I clean to make it more user friendly since I am constantly using my big shot lately. I used to have it up on a shelf since I only used it once in awhile. Now that I have built a collection of dies I am using it more and more. I am also trying to use up old things or donate them to the school craft group. I wish weekends were a little longer so I could finish all my plans.

Today is our high school craft fair which I am selling a few cards. I made 60 not knowing how it will go. I have a few stamped candles and stamped memo pads. This year I am sharing a table with a lady who sells quilts. Basically she needed help and said if I helped I could put things in it too. We will see how it goes. I have seen lots of things this year on line that if I had been planning far enough ahead I could have done a few more things. I am making a list of all the things I would like to do possible for next year. I guess it all depends on how this year goes.

I found the cutest snowman Sizzix die at JoAnn's. It has the nose, eyes etc on the die but I had this stamp that fit perfectly on the face and the Snowman Soup stamp fit perfectly on his stomach. I used my Cuttlebug folder to give his scarf and the topnote die some texture. I made about 20 of these for the craft fair at the high school. I have Christmas cards that I have made, some candles and stamped post it notes. Hopefully, I will be more prepared for next year having cards for all sorts of occastions. This year I am just trying out a few things that may sell.

Not that is would have done me any good cuz I would have had to slam on my brakes which would have caused an accident LOL. I couldnt believe my eyes...I saw a coyote not far from a main road in a field!!! I turned my car around but of course it was gone. It was amazing. I have never seen one even tho my MIL has lost cats to them and you can hear them in the woods near her house.
