Cupcakes for a Cause

Although this post is not entirely craft related... it is for a good cause, and with my love for cupcakes... I had to share.

This week is "Cupcakes for a Cause" week. Cupcakes for a cause benefits cancer care for kids fighting the battle.

Check out their website here. It lists participating bakeries in your area to buy cupcakes and/or host a bake sale. And if you can't buy a cupcake... send a virtual one! göt2b will be donating $1 for every e-cupcake sent.

Do your part. Help out when you can. Visit today.

Pirates and Weddings

So... if you were not aware. Today... September 19th, is National Talk Like a Pirate day. Naturally... with my love for all things pirate... this holiday MUST be observed.

Today was also the wedding of my friends Jen & Bob.

Clearly... the two had to connect, so check out the card I made for the wedding...

Congratulations to the happy couple... Arrrgghhh!

First Craft Fair... Check!

I know you have all been wondering how the fair went.... and were waiting for a post on Sunday... sorry to be a slacker blogger, but I am happy to report it went GREAT!

The day was sunny, and perfect weather for walking around. Set up was quick and easy... (thanks to all my helpers) and actually I made my first sale before I even finished (yay!) As the day went on, it got busier and busier... at one point, you couldn't fit any more people in my booth!

All in all- it was a great day and a successful craft fair. I received lots of applications for upcoming fairs in the area, and look forward to doing another one. More info on upcoming fairs in a later post... but for now, check out pictures from the fair...

crafty-ness exploded...

so i have been sort of hush in the blog world... but that is not to say i have not been busy. its less than two weeks till the craft fair and im getting sort of nervious. do i have enough stuff? will people like my flowers? its crazy whaat goes through your head. this is my first fair, and i don't know what to expect.

it currently looks like a craft store threw up in my living room. and thats not even counting the dining room table where my sewing machine and cutting mats are set up! which is fine for the moment, i like the crafty chaos. but as soon as the fair is over its priority one to organize all my supplies better. this way i'll be more productive. i am still dreaming of the day where i have an art studio where everything can stay set up with out being in the way... one day...

this weekend: the plan is to pull out all my finished pieces and see what still needs to be done for the fair. so stay tuned for a mini fair preview coming soon :)
