last minute news

i’m counting down the hours until the sew funky marketplace this weekend. despite taking on additional responsibilities this week, i think i’ll actually be ready, which means i won’t be pulling an all-nighter to prepare like i did for the last sew funky. it helps that i have most of my booth already finished from previous shows, as well as having everything tagged and carded. still, i wanted to add some new goodness to my set-up.

i finally got around to adding the doilies to my tablecloth. they’re currently glued on. maybe by the next show i’ll actually have them sewn on. we’ll see. time always seems to get away from me…

i’m happy to be bringing the first of the jewelry display boards to this show, too. took me long enough, right? {oh the trials and tribulations of the perfectionist.}

lastly, i’m halfway through whipping up a batch of paper fortune cookies to offer as little giveaways.

if you’re in southern california and can make it to the show, please stop by and say hello! it’ll be twice as big as last time, but still located in the riverside marriott ballroom, from 9:30-3 on saturday the 8th. hope to see you there!

sew funky marketplace {redux}

i’m going to sew funky marketplace again! it’ll be october 8th from 9am to 3pm at the riverside marriott. help support the growing arts & crafts community in the inland empire by attending and checking out all the cool goodies. it’ll be a great time to shop for handmade holiday gifts, too.

last time, i didn’t sleep at all the night before because i was up tagging all my pieces // this time i’m going to be more prepared and less sleep-deprived. last time, my backdrop was a little wonky because i made it out of the small pvc // this time it’ll stand upright because i know better now. last time,¬† the hubby and i went home with this adorable mustache pillow from the leef // who knows what we’ll find this time!!

sew funky marketplace

hello there! i am happy to report success at my first ever show! not only did i meet my sales goal at the sew funky marketplace, i also met lots of cool crafters and had lots of fun. my display came out great {even though my backdrop was a little wonky–i learned that i need to use the heftier pvc pipe!} and i wanted to take you on a virtual tour, in case you were unable to make it. look for some of these newer items in the store soon!

there were so many other inspiring ideas and great crafts, too. check out henneman’s photography’s photos of the whole event. i didn’t have time to walk around and take pictures {& i think hers are way better anyway}!

getting excited!

who doesn't need a turntable pillow? from theleef.

it’s a little too late to worry, as tomorrow is the sew funky marketplace! not that lack of time ever stopped me. do i have too much stuff? have i made enough? will my display get put up in time? will anyone buy anything? what if i don’t have enough bags? what if, what if, what if?!

i wanted to share with you some of my personal faves of people coming to the market. i can’t wait to get my hands on these goodies! there are so many cool vendors coming. if you’re in the area, i hope you’ll stop by! as far as i know, this is the first crafts market of its kind here in riverside, and i’m super excited to be participating in the very first one. i hope there will be many, many more! i love meeting other crafters and seeing their beautiful creations.

just click on the link to get more info on these cuties. better yet, stop by the market and pick on up! we’ll be there from 9:30 am to 3 pm at the Riverside Marriott!

four more days to go!

i'm focused on the finish

what’s funnier than watching basset hounds run? mmm…nothing, really. thanks to the hubby for sharing this hysterical round up. in the mix i found the above picture, which reminds me a bit of how i feel right now. super excited, somewhat insane, and all over the place. only four more days to prepare for my very first craft show ever {the sew funky marketplace at the riverside marriot this saturday, july 9 from 9:30 to 3}. if you’re local, i hope to see you there!

i promise to look more put together once everything’s all set up.
