craft show - things to remember

#1 - remember to bring a camera! I forgot mine yesterday for my trunk show at Magpie I had my awful camera on my awful cell phone so they don't do it justice...
The day was fun. I met some cool people - both customers and employees- thanks to Alison for opening early, and to Mary and Louise of Magpie. It was terrific prep for Bazaar Bizarre (hope to see you there)! Today, I took a brief break from crafting, but I'll be back at it tonight. My mom sent up some cool old fabric I want to use. It was from an old high school sewing project probably when I was obsessed with Twin Peaks and I wanted to be just like Audrey Horne. Is it any wonder??

If they come out the way I expect, I'll have some new pics to post as well as some new goods for the holidays. More to come!

Gearing up for the next couple of shows...

With Thanksgiving around the corner and birthday and Halloween celebrations a not too distant memory, crafting headpieces is taking up most of my "free" time. I love the deadline feeling (can you tell I'm a Procrastinator? - note the capital P) and the holiday feeling coming into the Fall. Saturday, November 20 will be my 1st trunk show at Magpie in Davis Square. I'll be there from 11am-6pm selling some cool new pieces for the holidays, noir cocktail hats from my Fall/Winter collection, and also some discounted past season items! Pictures to come (if there's time in between all that sewing).

I'll be traveling like mad this Thanksgiving - car, train, bus, to a car and another car, but I get to see my family again before Christmas. I miss them all and especially can't wait to see my adorable niece and nephew. Hopefully I'll get to post a holiday pic or two this year!

Right after that is the fabulous Bazaar Bizarre Boston (see they're great new page). I'll be there with lots of other talented and amazing vendors, so get your dollar ready and brave the line (it goes fast, I swear) for some of the best holiday shopping in the country. I think I'll start playing my Christmas music now... too early?
