Sorry, A Little Rant

Sorry, but this is a little rant. Back in January I won a set of stamps. I was so excited. I am wanting to get into stamping, but can't afford it at this time. I picked out my set and replied to the email I received. I never heard a reply so I emailed the person again. They had been sick and said they would get the stamps out as soon as they were feeling better. Fast forward to beginning of April. No stamps ever received. I sent an email asking about them. Was told they were sent, but had had some trouble with deliveries. They said they would get another set out immediately. Fast forward to today. Still no stamps.

I guess I am just a little hurt. I was soooo excited to win some. I don't want to sound disrespectful, but I also don't like being lied to. In fact lying is one of my pet peeves. Sorry for the rant, I just had to get it off my chest.

1st Craft Show

Togs by Toni and VinDeeLoo's This 'n That did our first craft show over the weekend. We did ok. We went into it with no expectations. We didn't want to use just tables. We found some unique ways to display our items.

We know we need something different to put our "heads" on. They were too low. We need to do some thinking and come up with more space. Mom will have more doll items for the next show. Mom's hand towels were not in a good spot. They were looked over quite a bit. I will need more room to put my things. The bottom shelves of both baker's racks are not good places for items. No one looked at them. Any ideas and suggestions will be welcomed.
Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

New Glass Blocks

I had fun designing more Glass Blocks. I can even personalize them. I had a lot of interest in them at the Craft Show, but no purchases. Several people take my card. I really hope they decided to get a hold of me and order one.

 I took a picture of the Holy Family again. It is a much better picture.

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

New Towel Head Wraps

We have 2 more colors of our Towel Head Wraps.

Doll Clothes

Mom was looking through the American Girl Doll Catalog and came up with her own pattern for the Bath Set.
She also made a new fancy dress.

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

New Aprons

Mom made some new aprons for the craft show. 

She added a bow and finished the Apron Apron.

April Showers Blog Hop! - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Creations With Kathryn's April Showers Blog Hop! If you missed my cute Baby Cupcakes from yesterday's post, go HERE.

You should have arrived from That's Uneek. Once again, I am the last one in this wonderful hop. You can now rest. :)  If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning then you can visit Creations With Kathryn.

With showers comes rainbows. I am making these rainbow bookmarks for a community I am involved with - 1 down and about 100 more to go. :)
Flower - Cut from Accent Essentials. I don't remember what it is cut at because the flower is left over from a RAK/SWAP I was in.
Rainbow Stamp - from Micheal's $1.00 bin
The rainbow is cut using my Martha Stewart 1" circle punch. It is popped up with a Pop Dot. Orange Ribbon is tied around the paper clip. I don't have any fancy markers, so the rainbow is colored with my Crayola Colored Pencils.

I am just trying stamps. There are several I would LOVE to have - especially Peachy Keen faces and Joy's Life Round Sentiments. I may just have to invest in some with my earnings from the Craft Show this weekend.

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

April Showers Blog Hop!

Welcome to the April Showers Blog Hop! If you have just stumbled across my blog and would like to start at the beginning, visit Kathryn at Creations With Kathryn. If you arrived from That'z Uneek you are in the right spot. And guess what?!?!?!?! I am the last stop today. You will need to stop by Kathryn's one more time, but that will be no problem. Now this is a 2 day hop, so I expect to see everyone back again tomorrow.

The theme for this blog hop is April Showers. So far this month has been nice and dry here and I really hope it stays that way - especially this weekend, mom and I are in a craft show. A young lady at from our church is pregnant. A friend was making a diaper cake for her baby shower. I was asked to make something too. I made a couple of "Baby Cupcakes".

2 Baby Wash Cloths
2 Pink PomPoms
Cupcake Wrappers cut at 6" from Cupcake Wrappers cartridge.
Toppers are from Cupcake Wrappers too, but I don't remember at what size they were cut. They are glued to toothpicks.
The paper I used was scraps someone had given me.

This is what I gave the mother-to-be.
Now, I did not make the binder clip. I was in a RAK/SWAP in February/March. The binder clip was one I received in the swap. I thought it was cute and knew it would make a nice gift.

Well, I hope your April has started off to a nicely. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow. You need to head back over to Creations With Kathryn.

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo
