you live and you learn.
But, regardless, I was very excited for my booth! I absolutely love making cards and sharing with others what I love! You could also say I was very proud of my display. My husband took an old pallet and made some boxes to display my cards. He's the best! I also found an awesome 6 pane window at an antique store a few weeks back for $3.75(!!) and strung the chalkboard banner from Stampin' Up! that I purchased last week during the extravaganza. I added some chalk labels from Hobby Lobby and I was set!
So, over the next few days I will be sharing some of the cards I made in preperation for the booth. Tonight I will just show you the end result :)
I used my Halloween tombstones as message boards. My friend Jamie picked up on it, but I don't know who else knew! Shhhhh! :)
Lots of cards - or caaads as they're pronounced in New England.
Single Christmas cards and 5pks.
Tags were 50c, gift card holders were $1.50 and the wine tags were $2.50 or 2/$4
My intentions with the Rudolph's spares were to fill the 1x8" cellophane bags (from SU) with red sixlets that I ordered off amazon. Unfortunately the package was lost in the mail and never showed. However, I had enough red rolos to fill 2 curvy keepsake boxes. I didn't sell any treat boxes though, so at least Eli's preschool and Sunday school gifts are started!
I also made the sugar scrub - you can find the recipe here. They make great stocking stuffers! The tag is made from the Sweet Season digital stamp set. I always wanted the set and when I found it online I bought it, added it to MDS and printed them out. Simple as that!
The lady who had a booth beside won my raffle basket items. She was so excited and maybe, just maybe, I have a future customer! I loved the tag I made for the coffee :) (don't mind the picture -- this was on the [dirty] raffle prize table).
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the samples :) will post more this week!
