Crafty Bonanza!

Hey all! I've decided that I need to get in the habit of posting more regularly...cause I usually do have something up my sleeve when it comes to anything crafty:) I've decided that I'm going to try to do a post a day for the whole month of December... Why, December, one of the busiest months of the year? Because there are sooooo many cool things to make for Christmas, I have 2 whole weeks off of work (gotta love working for the schools!!!), and we have the least amount of daylight we'll have all year...thus being inside alot!

So, get ready for it...the Crafty Bonanza is set to begin on December 1st! Comments or ideas of what to make are welcome and wanted:) I'm gonna try to do at least one giveaway...our first(yay) so stay tuned.

I will leave you with a few pictures of the winter wonderland that we are in!

Happy Sewing!

Alaskan Christmas Bazaar

We survived our 2nd craft fair of the year! We were at the Alaskan Christmas Bazaar today and had a very successful day! We had a lot more room at this show, and were able to add another table. It was much less cramped than the bazaar last week.
 We added some little felted wreaths...but had no where to stick being the ingenious and completely cheap frugal girls that we are we used sticks! Anchorage has been dumped on with snow this week, so early this morning I went out to the back yard with a hand saw and cut some branches. Lets just say I got a little wet with all the snow falling on me from the sawing the branches down and lets not forget the cute black puppy stealing the branches to mulch in our lawn. However I was successful at bringing in some sticks and we very much enjoyed the look we achieved with them...what say you?
When we saw where our booth was...we weren't too sure...there was a itty bitty bathroom with no door that the day care uses right next to us...but it got covered and we ended up really liking the location we had. We even requested it for next year! Hopefully procrastination won't be the name of the game...but we're planning on going back!

When we got our information for this bazaar, it stated that there would be a competition for the "Most Festive Booth" and who doesn't want to win? We may at times be called competitive...perhaps a little too competitive, but needless to say we both dug into our Christmas boxes to decorate a little :)
We bought nothing extra, just put some of our own decorations up and guess what?

(yeah I know you probably already guessed...but we were pretty pleased)
We received a free coffee from the coffee stand...not the biggest prize but we got bragging rights and a awesome sign to display!

Overall today was grrreat!!
 (as Tony the Tiger would say)
We had a great time hanging out together...which of course is the best part... hanging out with your best friend all day!

Happy Sewing!

Christmas Towne Bazaar

After a lengthy are some pics to show what we've been up too! After procrastinating all summer(because procrastinating is our middle name) a fire was lit under our respective bottoms and we have been frantically preparing for our first craft show.

With only minimal inventory we had to get our rears in gear and we were able to make half of what we thought would be necessary, to complete two different craft shows...yes we said that...two two weeks! Nuts...yes crazy, procrastinating, squirrelly sisters signed up for two shows in two weeks...did I mention that we are procrastinators? Also did I mention that our first show was one of the biggest bazaars in Anchorage?

Needless to say we had many a late night, but after surviving our first and not selling completely out of stuff, we're doing alright:)

This is a picture of our booth of the show today. We think it actually ended up pretty darn cute! We had slippers on the tree and some people thought that they were actually ornaments! We actually had one lady buy three pairs for her future grandkids...and wanted to use them as ornaments. She was a hoot and a half!
We met some very interesting people and it's crazy fun to see all the different people an personalities that show up at the show. 

 We scored this great vintage suitcase awhile back for $15, and it was a great display case for the pack up was super easy...just close the lid and carry it out!

Like the random pieces of paper?...our signage was less than something to be desired, so we made some awesomely tacky signs to make do. We've learned a thing or two and signage is definately something we need to work on!

Overall, today was highly successful. We conquered our first craft show, learned a thing or two and had a blast doing it!

Happy Sewing!
