Tomorrow is the FIESTA!


I am so excited. It is like Christmas. If I go to bed now then the Craft Fair Fairy will come sooner so I can sell all my goods. That is how it works right? Please don't tell me there is no such thing as the Craft Fair Fairy!

Tomorrow is the day. Setup begins at 8. We have 3 hours to set up so that should be plenty of time. I hope!

This fair is my first doing my own booth and I am super excited to use all my new goodies. Having a father who is a carpenter helped. He was so great and made me displays. We took old picture frames and put solid wood with hooks as the backs and painted them all black. They turned out so elegant! I am also using fresh flowers this time around. I made sure to get some that show the Fiesta colors. (Pictured below)

I am logging off for tonight. I need my beauty rest and I don't think customers want to see a baggy eyed lady trying to show off her jewelry.

Oh yeah, I have to tell you, I had a heck of a time getting a banner for this fair. The original company let me down and couldn't produce the product in the promised time. Wilson Graphics (on Etsy) came through. I placed an alchemy request and he had it ready to ship within 2 days. It is amazing how it turned out. I will post photos of the fair by Sunday.

Heather from Adagio Beadcrafters has a booth too. She does amazing work. Her items are girly, dainty and gorgeous! She is a pleasure to be friends with and we lean on each other during times like this. It is great to have such a wonderful person to bounce things off of.

So good night to all and I can't wait for the morning. (How do you say that in spanish?)
