Scenes From A Craft Show

These past two weeks have been crazy busy with preparation for my two annual craft shows.  Table display, business cards. table signs, price tags, and sewing into the wee hours of the morning.  I can't believe it is all over already.  The shows went extremely well this year and my mom and I are both so excited at the end result.  "Oh Good" you say...."Now you can relax"   Well not yet-----My new sewing machine and I continue to be busy completing many special orders for the upcoming Christmas season.  It brings me such joy to know that some special little girl will wake on Christmas morning to find one of my dolls under the tree.  All of this hard work is truly worth it.  Before I get started sewing for the day, I wanted to share with you some pictures of the shows. 










I even had two of my most favorite people to help me.
Emma modeled my Mom's felt flowers in her hair---

while Kate helped me package up purchases.  I could not have asked for better helpers.  And then look who came to visit Aunt Mimi....
My sweet Emily.  Aunt Mimi could not resist purchasing this little hat for her.  I just loved that big  hand crocheted flower.  She does have the most beautiful blue eyes---I just always seem to snap her picture when she is sleeping :) 
All in all the shows were a success.  Now if I could just get those orders done I would be in good shape. I'd better get to work......

All of your creations are absolutely beautiful, as always!!! I love the way you used the drawers for your display at the show!! I'm doing a craft show in a couple of weeks and I might have to steal your idea!! : ) What are those little animals that look like they're on sticks? Adorable!!! And, I pinned your lavender strawberries onto my Pinterest board. I hope it's okay!! xoxo

Hi Mimi, Your dolls are adorable. Craft shows are fun, but they can be stressful getting ready. I ended up doing 4 in a roll. My 12 year old grandson was a great helper and he took his wooden puzzles that he makes. His farm animals was a big hit. Your little one is so precious and looks adorable with her hat on. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Just wanted to drop by and say "hi"! I'm sure you've been busy and will continue to be through Christmas! Your craft show photos are wonderful, everything set up so lovingly! And your little Emily is darling in the crafted hat you bought for her! Hugs and be sure to stop for a mocha-coffee break once in while!
Hugs, Heidi
