I'm too tired to write but I just wanted to share some pictures of my table at the show today. I had lots of fun, met some great people, saw some cool stuff, heard some great music but I didn't make alot of (or almost any!) money. That's ok 'cause it was my first show ever and it was a great learning experience. I just want to give a big thank you to the Etsy community for making me look like a pro. I took all of the advice I found on the forums, made a list, checked it twice and it made me look like a million bucks. I love you, Etsians :)

So, here's my booth and stuff. I didn't buy anything for the display at all. I had the table, tablecloth, cake plates, display trees, easels & tray around the house. I had Henry go through the garage and find all unused pieces of scrap wood and used them as pedestals and a makeshift display for hanging my cards. I used a box that came with one of Ethan's toys to hang some dowels to display my ACEOs - I painted everything white. :) Having NO MONEY didn't stop me! Enjoy.

I think I'm going to bed now. Yes, I know it's only 7pm but I'm pooped! G'nite all!

Mom has come and gone. We had an intimate little dinner party at my sister's house for Mom's birthday while she was here. Loads of fun and laughter and silliness. I can't wait for my Mom and Dad to move here. I wish they would hurry!

I'm so nervous about the ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS event this Saturday! I'm so afraid of not having enough stuff and that I'll forget something. I have my list of must haves that I've gathered from my seasoned etsy craft show sellers. Wish me luck :) I'll be sure to post photos and report back when it's all done!

If you're in the Durham, NC area this Saturday check us out - it'll be fun! And be sure to stop by the WhimsyPics table and say hi :)
