Ready or Not........

Well my craft show is tomorrow and I never truly feel ready for these things! I have been reviewing what else I might need and I may end up sewing something up tonight, I am having the urge but I am trying to control it!
My table will have a holiday theme but not many of my products are holiday I try and have a mix of everything. I will take pick of my table so you can see.

I did this purse the other day with my new Ava Rose fabric from Tanya Whelan of Grand Revival I love how it turned out. I really like the sash bows, I could add them to everything.

Here are most of the bags I have done.

I love how all the straps look lined up, they are so colorful!

Wish me luck! Meg

Faux Finishes & Progress

I am busy getting ready for a craft fair that is this weekend and busy fighting off the sinus infection and ear ache I just can't seem to get rid of!

I wanted to share a few of the little piles of goodies I am creating to sell at the show!

All packed up!
Key Fobs
Pretty Tissue Holders
Coin Purses w/ pearl snaps
I think they look so pretty all together!

Still more to come on my progress.....

On another note I wanted to share a fun faux finish technique I did on a frame I painted for a memo board.

First I started off with a plain wooden frame and painted it my desired color.

Then I choose another color for the accent.

I used this pretty felt trim from Heather Bailey's Scrap booking collection

Then I used a paint brush and painted the trim

(I used a paper plate to contain the mess)

Then lay the trim down on to the frame

Using a paper towel so you don't get the paint all over your

hand, then press lightly.

Lift off trim and you should have a print of the felt image on the frame.

Continue all around the frame until you get the look you want.

For mine I overlapped the images.

Now it is done!

Use to frame family photos or with my Framed memo board tutorial!

Here is a peek at what I will have in my frame!

Happy Crafting! Meg

what I want, so in the mean time I got these from Staples they are

super affordable and I think they turned out pretty great!

I am really happy with the quality and you can even customize!

Another great find!!! I purchased this yummy bar of soap from etsy seller
BubblesUpByBethieB's it came in a cute little wrapper & smells heavenly!

It has a beautiful pumpkin color and it has a layer of

brown sugar on the top for gentle skin polisher.

Pop Garden Pinks in Patchwork..........

I have been super busy with custom orders, it always gets busy this time of year with orders for holiday gifts! I am also busy getting ready for a bazaar scheduled for the end of the month I will update later on my progress for that!

Here are some pics of a diaper bag I have recently finished for a new mommy who is due to deliver her twin baby girls any day now! I just love how it turned out, she wanted a predominately pink girly bag so I chose all the pink prints from Heather Bailey's new Pop Garden line! This is a large bag and it took me almost 3 days to complete with the patch work all the pockets and side tie details! I hope she loves it as much as I do!!!!
