So, I don't have a clue as to why I started this thing. It was a whim decision and I wish I had waited until next year. Matt was saying how cool it would be to do AlleyFest and somehow I found myself agreeing... Which don't get me wrong it probably would be cool once I got my legs under me a little better. I don't know if I've got a strong enough base to be doing a craft fair yet.

I've got beads, I've got displays, I've got fabric and a few things to sell.... But now it's time to make lots and lots of other things to sell and put a price on it. Then, I'll have to do even more... We'll actually have to go to AlleyFest and put my name/face out there. Am I frickin crazy??? As if I already didn't have a taste of social anxiety.

In just a couple of short weeks, we will be setting up for a booth in public for cryin out loud lol. I'm having a hard time getting things together and taking the time to start making things. Caegon is at such a fun age.... This is the time that mothers need to take it slow and really enjoy what a baby has to offer.. So why did I decide on an impulse to waste some of this precious time with him?

Matt said... When is AlleyFest anyway
I said.... First weekend of June.. Deadline to enter hasn't passed yet.
He said... We should enter a booth
I said... That would be pretty cool

....and now I'm kicking myself in the rear. I'm no where near ready. I don't really have the time to get ready for this. And seeing as they've already accepted my booth fee and there are no refunds after May 7th, I guess we're doing this thing.

Ready or not... Here we come Alleyfest!

Creatively Speaking

So you all know that Matt can be a frickin mad genius with a little bit of wood and his large collection of tools. Well, he's at it again! In a couple of short weeks, we will be hosting a booth at the local AlleyFest and I knew that I would be needing some displays made up. Well, he came home with an extra sheet of plywood off a job and had plans to return it at Lowe's so I asked him what if we just actually USED it? He hasn't made everything yet, but check this out!!

I was at walmart where I had been trying to talk myself out of buying that fabric but I had this strong impulse to buy it and I'm so glad I did! How awesome is this!?

We went to Michael's the other day and bought the stuff to make these bad boys:

Thanks, hunny!!

In other news- Caegon has found his thumb!

Onward with my craft fair duties!!!
After I feed Caegon, of course! :)
