I've taken lots of pictures of what I've made, but have only posted a few. This is *the* craft fair around here. Enough that I've stopped doing any others and concentrate on this one alone.
The fair starts at 9am and goes until 5pm (though I left last year around 3 because I sold out!)
Never fear, Mr. Brown (aka UPS man) came with my SS club order from yesterday. Yes, I placed the order yesterday, and yes, I got it today. It's not my fault- my older than dirt corner punch bit the dust, and I *HAVE* to have it to finish a project for Saturday. I almost never pay for next day- I'm too cheap.
Anyhow, it's hear, and after divvying up everything, I realized the sad truth, I ordered no stamps for myself. How is that for sadness? Oh well, corner punch in hand, I shall finish project #5 for Saturday and be happy once again.
I had a lot of fun with this. A friend/neighbor who has been struggling with infertility and trying for a baby as long as we have is expecting. It's been wonderful! She nicknamed her baby "Blueberry" thanks to our doctor. I tried, in vain, to find blueberry fabric, but no such luck. The inner section of the card is lovely- but it's intended for her eyes only... but trust me. :)
Pens (I like RSVP pens, but any will work)
Red Tacky Tape (comes in 4 sizes, I use the widest, and the narrowest)
Tray (something to contain the beads)
Step One: Empty beads into a tray. The cover a pent with the red tacky tape. I use the widest and the narrowest ones. Completely cover what you wish to bead. Don't worry about lining ends up yet.
Step Two: Peel away the red liner. Then take the narrowest tacky tape and make a clean edge at the top and bottom. Peel away liner.
Step Four: Once covered, roll between your palms and roll in beads again. Repeat as needed till pen is covered how you wish.
Once done, they look like this!! It's quick, easy, and everyone loves to write with a happy pen!
Here is a link to the post that someone asked how I did it. I saw it in the gallery at 2 Peas and thought I would figure it out. Fun stuff for sure!!
Red Tacky Tape
Candy (or other goodies)
1 12X12 CS/PP
Step 1: Cut your 12X12 sheet into 5X11" strips. (The size doesn't matter so much- it depends on how big you want the favors to be. Experiment- all sizes are super fun!)
You won't want to miss this!

It was a full house of 10 scrappers- and it was a blast. There was food, music, laughter, more laughter, and in between we did manage to shop and even create.
It was also the end of the 1st quarter- so certainly cause for celebration!!!
BTW: There were a fvew people wanting some SU goodies, so I will be placing an order on Monday night if anyone needs anything. Let me know!
Tonight there are about 7 of us who are heading out there. Including one who plans to swing in to visit (she's back in town, moved to Spokane last spring) and I'm so excited!!
Please may 4pm come quickly....
For those who live close, swing by- everything starts up about 6pm, and if you scrap- stop by the store and say hi!
