Craft Fair Photos, a Freezer Tee, Magnetic Boards & Freebies!

Well, here it is over a week after my first craft fair and I'm just now posting about it. It was not as successful as I had hoped. It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience, but unfortunately, it was not well advertised. There was no sign by the road and no ad in the paper. I think the person hosting relied soley on facebook to advertise. I did sell $28.00 worth. Not quite worth all the effort, but at least I have 2 more fairs to go to. The magnetic boards have sold well in my craft booth at the local trader's mall. I am selling them $10each or 2/$15.00.

These are soem Geneva "Sandra Bullock" watches that my DSIL is selling. She has them in several different colors and designs. They are $10.00 each. If you'd like to purchase one, or more, please email me at Shipping is $3.00.

Here is a bracelet that I made for a local sorority girl. Their mascot is the panda. So I found these cute little panda beads on ebay. I made the red beads myself.

Here is a bracelet that I made for my DSIL. She is a dental assistant, so I got the cute little teeth beads on ebay.

And here is a t-shirt that I made for a friend's little boy. Her husband has a shirt just like it that she got him at Old Navy, but they did not make it in the baby's size, so she asked if I could make one like it. Of course! haha. I just used my cricut and SCAL and replicated the design. I cut it out in freezer paper and then used the freezer paper as a stencil to paint. If you've never tried this before, you can see a tutorial here. You can download the Gobble Gobble SVG here.

Finally, here are a couple of the magnetic boards I was talking about. I made these using decorative cookie trays that I got from the Dollar Tree. I made the bottlecap embellishments myself and cut the UK using my SCAL and cricut. You can download it here.

Here is one representing our local school colors.
