Wow, Getting Ready For A Craft Show

Mom and I have a booth a the craft show in town next weekend. I have been trying to get my items ready. I have been working on something everyday, every minute. I need to take some pics, but haven't made the time. I can take some hopefully this weekend. I will make sure and take the camera to the show and take pictures of our booth. I love how we are going to display the headband and necklaces we are making. My husband loves the packaging of the necklaces.

A Need to Succeed!

This is for a teacher friend of mine where I live. I taught with her last year. She is a wonderful teacher and I learned so much from her. Please take a look.

Please take a look at her project. If anyone can afford to give anything, I know Mrs. N. would greatly be appreciative.

Doll Clothes

Mom started making doll clothes for my nieces' American Girl Dolls. She really enjoys making them. We had fun playing with the doll when we were taking the pictures. For some reason when I was taking the pictures I kept wanting to say "On three. 1, 2, 3." We got tickled because the doll did not have to get ready for her close-up.

Towel Wrap

This is one of the towel wraps we are making. My oldest niece was excited to hear we are making these. She said she was going to purchase a couple. How can I make my niece pay for something?

I love wearing our headbands. I wear one most everyday. One day when I was subbing I forgot to put one on. One of my students asked why I wasn't wearing one.

Linda at The Paper Boutique had a tutorial for making flowers. Mom and I took the flowers and made them into bows. My nieces wear them in their hair. I wear mine on my headbands that we make. My mom wears hers as broaches on clothes.

We even can make them small enough for American Girl Dolls. We don't have any made up at this time for dolls, because we gave them to my niece for her birthday.

I Must Be Feeling a Little Digi!

I sometimes wish I had gone to school for Graphic Design. I really love working on my computer. Many tell me I need to be a computer tech. I am for so many in my family.

I decided I needed a digi stamp to put on my items. I actually came up with one for me, one for mom, and one for both of us. This will be helpful when dad or others are helping us at a craft show. They will be able to tell who gets credit. Here are our digi stamps.

Boy, those are bigger than what they really are. I made them .95" so I can use my 1" MS punch to cut them out.

I  made a label for the top of our receipts. I din't want ours to be generic.

I also made a tag for mom to put on her doll clothes and aprons. I didn't save a pic of that, but it matches the font on the business cards I made her.

More Stuff Done

My dad volunteers at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. He saw these wood note pads there and figured I could do something with them.
He was correct. This is what I am doing.

I finished another clipboard.

I also made some smaller paper rosette magnets.
I really need to get to mom's and take some pictures of the stuff we are doing and her aprons and doll clothes.

I have several more projects I am in the middle of. I will get them posted as I finish them.

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

New Colors

I got tired of my blog colors. It really didn't match me. I am not a pink person. I really like my business cards and this template matches them pretty well.  What do ya'll think?

Flaunt It Fridays #14 - Twinkle Toes

I sing with a group called Common Ground. All our music is in black folders. I decided to decorate mine so it stands out. 

I am a horrible flaunter today. I have no idea what I cut anything out at. I do know that everything was done with scraps.

Need Some Photography Advice/Help

As promised, here are the things I have been working on. I still have some of the necklaces to finish and I am not posting my future Blog Hop items. I am not real happy with my photographs. I took these in a room with natural light. I use a tripod for my camera. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I got this Magnet Board idea from Carrie at greenbean's crafterole. The flowers were all over the net, I just added the magnets.

I am not sure where I got the idea of the picture frame notepad. I saw it online back in Novemeber, but have no idea where. Sorry I could not give someone credit.

The following are the magnets I am making. Some are made of buttons and some are bottle caps.

These are Bottle Cap necklaces we are making. They are being put on bails. We decided not to make the chokers. The can be monogrammed with a letter or like the BFF. They can also have gems like the magnets. I guess the pictures of the ones with gems did not turn out.

Finally, we have the Button Necklaces. We have 2 sizes.

Like I said, mom and I have decided against doing chokers. We have the organza necklaces, like on the button necklaces and then we have added the rubber necklaces, like on the bottle caps. People will be able to chose the type of necklace they would like. We are gonna have the chokers we purchased at the craft show. They make good headbands. 

If anyone has any suggestions to make my photographs better, please let me know.
