Today's Feature... ME!

I had a show yesterday. Bobby was so absolutely wonderful for helping me out and hanging out with me this day!! What a man =) It was at one of the nicest venues I could have imagined. It took place at Blue Sky Vineyard in Makanda, IL. The drive out there was scenic, and the clouds were sun to watch. It looked like it was going to rain the whole time, but we only got the tiniest sprinkle of droplets for a second. I only sold a few items, but it was nice to be outside and get some sun! I think people only spent their money on wine, I was sort of surprised. I also think that I am going to hold off on doing shows til Apple Fest in September. It is a 3 day show, and people go there for the art, at least I hope!
There are a few things I need to do...
*Sew proper table cloths
*Make more Boy Booties
*Bring Less Shelving
*Buy another Plant Stand
*Make MORE Purses
*Maybe treat myself to the black wire Store Setup at Lowes!
Other than that, I would not change a thing!

Plump Pudding

This company and woman have been a personal favorite for a long time!! She sews all kinds of houseware goodies! Sorry, but I love all her ideas so much, I had to put TONS of images. Such a cool setup! See her on Flickr HERE. And see her BLOG HERE.

Posey Patch

Today's feature is Posey Patch. She makes wonderfully cute and high-quality purses and other sewn goodies! She does an excellent job of filling up her booth very fully and also getting the items up off of tables. It is quite hard to find a good option for raising up items to eye level. See her on Flickr HERE.
ATTENTION: Show Date Announcement! Hyde Park Art Show in Cincinnati on October 5th. Thanks Mary & Sue!! Good Luck Girls.
