Daisy Clipboard & Babes-In-A-Tin

Well, it's another week and survival of another craft fair ;o) My parents have participated in the Season's Best Craft Fair for 24 years, since it's inception! Anyway, we were very successful. All the memo boards sold and by Sunday, our booth looked pretty sparse.

Remember the Ladybug clipboard I created? Well, the same gal picked up this memo board.

Here's a picture of our Family Affaire booth filled with modge podge of items.
and, for those who wondered, here's what my Babes in a Tin looks like. It's a baby chipboard book packaged in a tin. The chipboard album looks wonderful in Baby's room or on the door.

Just thought I'd add this one, one I created for my niece 2 years ago. Her picture is on the top and the bottom of the album. Also the reverse holds 6 photos.
Two more craft fairs to go: Lanikai and Castle HS both this weekend. It was wonderful to see friends and family stopping by the booth.

And Sunflowers. This one sold quickly. Well, just woke up and time to leave back to the fair.
Hope you enjoyed your Black Friday shopping!

MIA - Craft Fair Season

Yes, I've been MIA, working frantically for this Season's Best Craft Fair this week Friday (Black Friday), Saturday and Sunday at the NBC. Of course we procrastinated until the last minute to make our wares.

But anyway, here is one of the 12x12 bulletin boards I just finished. It's a magnetic and cork board I just decorated with 3-d flowers.

The second shot is a close up of the embossed centers for these flowers.

I'm having so much fun with them. It's almost like scrapbooking a layout!!

Well, I've got 6 more to go as well as some clipboards to decorate....

So far I've completed desk calendars and Babes in a Tin. More pictures will be posted.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Ho! Ho! Ho! - The Video

You asked for it, you got it!

Since there were so many who requested instructions on my Santa tags, I finally did it . . . I finally created a video BUT (and it's a BIG BUT!), I created it in two separate videos (didn't know how to pause the camera). LOL! Please pardon my VERY beginner attempts and enjoy!

Please comment and let me know what you think!!!!

Here's all the pieces for the Santa tag:

I used a sizzix tag but any die cut tag will do. One tag in flesh, 2 tags in red (2 pieces of hat), 1 tag in white (top part for hat and bottom half for beard). Cut as indicated in the picture. 1 strip of black (approx 3/4" in width); 1 cloud punch in white; 2 ea 3/4" circle in white (eyes); 1 ea 3/4" circle in flesh (nose); 1 ea 1" circle in white (cut in half for mustache); 2 ea 1/2" circle in black (eyeballs); 1 ea 1/2" circle in red (mouth).

As I viewed it back, I had to laugh at myself. So, so beginner!! Thanks for viewing and have a great day!!

I'll work on a Mrs. Santa video next.
