trying to get things done Monday






Good afternoon fellow bloggers..and blog followers..wow I see I am up to 65 followers..Jeepers I hope I don't let you down. I don't usually have to much to say and today isn't any different. Some of you know I did a craft show this past weekend. The weather was just awful..Rain Rain and more rain, all weekend long. So not many people were out and about, basically this year was one of the slowest I have been to. I have been doing this show for about 5 years now I think. I believe this was the lowest attendance level I have witnessed. I did ok compared to some other crafters..did some bartering..traded a doily for a necklace. Which is the one you see in the pic. I think I got the better deal.. I think I might do one more show before the end of the year..It is a juried show. That means I have to send pics of my stuff, my display, and sample of my stuff before they will let me in the show..and that is if they have room for me..I guess this place is rather picky. I have to be voted on and approved. I can kind of understand the theory behind it. I don't know if I like it, but I can understand why they do it..so many people buy things and make a small revision to it and pass it off as homemade..this show wants only handcrafted items from beginning to end..so this is how they insure who and what is in their show. Posted some pics of the craft show..

Wow!! Look at all those doilies together! So very impressive!

I finished 2 doilies this weekend, so I was thinking of you. ;-) I'll post them this week.

Sorry the craft show was slow. Hopefully you'll get into the next one and do really well there!

Your booth area looks so nice with all your beautiful doilies on display. :)

Your display looked beautiful. I could have looked at your booth for hours, so many doilies. Sorry for the low turnout. It rained all weekend here also and it was a chilly rain. Hopefully the juried show will be better. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
