Just wanted to show you where I have been for the last few weeks. I have been BUSY!!! I found out about a craft show that lets you just drop everything off today, Wednesday, and pick it up Saturday. Gotta love that! No sitting there watching folks study everything you do for the ideas and not buying a thing! No sitting there at all. I LOVE THAT! But, I had no clue how things would be set up... and managed with no one there to explain things so I spent as much time on the packaging and the "look" as I did on the product! Now, looking at this picture I'm wishing I had spent more time on the actual set up! SHOOT!
But, I am happy to announce that, I had almost every single thing here at the house, both for the display, and for the product! The ONLY things I bought were the little frames you see on the upper levels and two boxes (striped in last photo)... I didn't get those because I needed them, I just really, really liked them! The frames were $1 each and the boxes were $1.25 each. OH! and I did have to buy some black spray paint for all the polka dot boxes...and for the frames, they only came in white. So I spent a total of about $10 for all you see! YAY ME!!! We won't talk about the 2nd mortgage I had to take out to collect all the other parts over the last few years!
All the polka dot boxes were made from all kinds of empty boxes I had around the house....from shipping boxes to cracker and cereal boxes. There is even a box that I brought home from the grocery store that held tuna fish. I tend to be a pack rat for good display boxes. Anyway, I spray painted them with $1 black spray paint and cut out tons of vinyl polka dots on my vinyl cutter, stuck them down.... DONE!
The things I made were:
Cards, and Bottles of Faith Capsules, I actually had these already... I have loaded each capsule with a healing faith scripture and one has a mustard seed. I'm selling these for $5+ each if anyone wants some. They were a TON of work but I love them!
Key chains, lace angels and tissue Covers
Refillable butter tubes, and burlap bags with a removable holly pin
And refillable foaming soap bottles
I think of everything I made, I like my boxes and signs the best.
