is usually Monday Inspiration but today I’m a bit under the weather and TIRED from the weekend. Hard workin! LOL! So I thought I’d show some tweaks I was “inspired” to make to my booth for this past weekend’s fair. I have one more before christmas so ALL HANDS ON DECK YO!

I found these fabby yarn mats (hot pads???) at a second hand store for 69 cents each! I am in love with them!  They are uber thick and in the perfect cheery colors. I had to have them, didn’t know what I was going to DO with them but that’s besides the point lol. The shutters need a new coat of paint (hoping this weekend but I hear snow in the forecast… its 60 right now! wtf michigan?!) but we made some strides with our frames for signage and the cute tags we made! I designed stickers (vista print) and DH helped me by punching and sticking. Isn’t he such a lovey? 🙂 
My fav part was the tree! I love how it turned out! I had that thing just sittin in storage, got a new topper (HL 50% off baby!) and hung the ornaments and Christmas cards from them 🙂 
I sold a lil of everything so I am pleased. I think it would have gone better but there was another cardmaker/paper crafter there (who was before me in the traffic flow to boot) who was selling some cards and very simple lil giftie tags and boxes. She made a killing! I hate her yet am jealous I didn’t think of it LOL. The hate, besides she got luck of the traffic flow (HA!), is all of her stuff was so “production line” and overly…. cheap isn’t a good word but it didn’t have any love in it if you know what I mean. I’m the only paper crafter at the Dec 10-11 show so fingers crossed! 
I know a few of you also had fairs this weekend so LET ME SEE THOSE PICS!!!
