Hi everyone... sorry I haven't posted anything.... truth is I haven't made anything. I have been busy this week trying to get my website up and running!! I am hoping by the end of tomorrow it will be ready... Stay tuned.
The craft shows went well considering the weather. On Saturday, it drizzled a little bit in the morning, but that was it. However, it LOOKED like it was going to rain all day... so that may have prevented some people from attending. The show was from 10-7pm. By 6pm the sun was out!! But not many people were there. I didnt do as well as last year, but did ok!! On Sunday, the forecast was sunny and 75 degrees.. Reality was cloudy (it looked like it was going to rain) and 60 degrees. They were so wrong about the forecast. So I am sure that many people didn't come out because of the weather. This craft show isn't the best.. I know that going in. Every year the vendors and the crowd gets smaller. They are trying to bring it back (it used to huge). I did alright considering the crowd size. Of course, my biggest customer was my mom!! I am very tired from standing all weekend.. but now I need to clean my house (especially my craft room... looks like a tornado went through it), and then put my left overs on Etsy and ArtFire. If you are interested in buying anything that I have featured on my blog in the past couple weeks, just shoot me an email. I will not be putting on Etsy or Artfire the post it notes, Halloween treats, or any of the little things...Off to clean.... have a great day!
Only 1 day left... can't believe it!! Time has flown and now it is here... I think I am ready... I still have a lot to do.. like make signs, attach price tags, pack everything up.... and make a few more things... I probably won't have time to blog all weekend.. so I will let you know how it goes on Monday. Have a great weekend!!
Hi!!! How is your Thursday??? I had NO baby cards in my stash. I couldn't believe it! So I had to make a bunch... The only baby set I have right now is PTI's Itty Bitty Baby set. Here is what I came up with.... Only 2 days left until my show..... and it is supposed to RAIN on Saturday... of course that is the BIG craft show.... hopefully it won't be a washout!
Hey everyone!! I hope that you are enjoying your Wednesday!! I have a very busy day.... trying to finish up all my projects for the craft show!!I thought I would stop by and quickly show you more craft show item. These are Halloween Lollipop covers. I also have a ghost one, but only have 2 lollipops right now!! Enjoy your day!!

Who would have thought that office supplies would make the cutest bookmarks or photoholders? These are HUGE sellers at craft shows. All the kids love them. These are Halloween bookmarks.
These are altered binder clips. You just slip a picture into the top of the clip and it will hold. Very cute way to display your favorite picture.
This is my last week to get ready for my craft shows. They are this weekend. I can't believe it is almost here!! The rest of my entries this week will be about items in my craft show... hope you don't mind!!

Today, my sisters and mom are taking me out to lunch. Then tonight, my son has a soccer game and then we are going to go out to dinner. It will be a great day!! Enjoy your Friday!!
I made these cute Halloween boxes using Stampin Up!'s fancy favor box die. I cut the die using my Big Shot. It was so easy to put together. Inside is a bag of candy (Tootsie rolls, starburst, dots.. candy that won't melt at the craft shows)in a cello bag, tied with a ribbon. There is only 8 days left until my craft show weekend. I am in 2 different ones: one on Saturday (Lebanon Applefest) and one on Sunday (Sharonville). If you live near Cincinnati, stop by and see me. I would love to meet you!!
HUGE sale tomorrow in my Etsy and Art Fire shops.... it will be my birthday and the discount will be my AGE! So I hope you are ready to shop.... this deal will not be back for awhile!! Have a great day! Beth
Aren't these so cute? I got this idea from Kerry at Kerry's papercrafts (she also made the wooden Halloween boxes). She is very talented. Check out her blog: http://crafts.peteandkerry.com/ You can put Kit Kat, Hershey bar, Nestle Crunch, Trident gum, or any candy that is flat.
I will be selling these at my craft shows next weekend. Have a great day!
Have you ever seen the mailboxes at the dollar spot at Target? They usually have them around Valentine's Day. Well, I have been collecting them and now I have a lot!! I decided I was going to decorate a few for Halloween. I will put a bag of treats inside. This is another item that will be at my craft shows. Can you think of any other ideas to put inside these cute mailboxes? If so, leave a comment! Have a great day!! Beth
I made these Halloween wooden treat boxes for my upcoming craft shows. I cased the idea from Kerry at Kerry's Paper Crafts. Aren't these cute? I will fill them with candy before the craft show. I bought the wooden boxes at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. They were unfinished, so I painted them black. Then I just covered them with Halloween paper. Very Easy!!! Til tomorrow......
Yeah, it is Saturday! It is beautiful here in Cincinnati!! I will be off to my daughter's soccer game in about an hour.. perfect day for soccer! Here are some pictures from the sample bachelorette party album. I used a 6x6 scrapbook. In the album, there are 10 page protectors, 20 scrapbook pages. I used Anna Griffin papers. I usually do not like her style, but I found these papers, and they were perfect! I don't have any pictures from anyone's party, so I just left it blank. So now I am down 2 sample albums (to show future brides) and have 2 more to go.... I still want to make a wedding shower album and a honeymoon album. If you are interested in a bachlorette party scrapbook, check out my website: Inkredible Creations Tomorrow, I will post some Halloween treat boxes that I will be selling at my craft show. Enjoy your Saturday! Beth
Good Friday morning to everyone. My son still has a slight fever... but he is much more energetic. I kept him home from school to rest! I don't think he slept last night because he says, "Is tonight's sleep going to be as long as last nights?" (He is 4 years old)Hopefully he will continue to get better...
Here are some more altered notebooks that I have made. The long ones are just the legal pads cut in half. They are great for teachers or make awesome grocery lists. They are really fun to make!! Last night I finished a sample 6x6 album for a bride's bachelorette party. I will post some pics from that this weekend. Have a great rest of your day!!
Hey everyone... I hope that everyone is having a great day... mine started off well, then all of sudden my son didn't feel well... he just crashed on the couch (he never does this) I felt his forehead and he was on fire!!! I took his temperature and it was 101... just makes me nervous with the swine flu going around!! Anyway, here are some notebooks that I have altered to sell at the craft show. I just covered them with pattern paper and added some ribbon and flowers. Have a great night!! Talk to you tomorrow!
I hope that everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. I had a great time with my family (when I wasn't crafting)! I spent a lot of my crafting time making Halloween cards. Here are 3 of the cards that I made:
These cards are available thru My art fire shop. I also spent a lot of time altering notebooks (that I have been collecting all year) for the craft show. So I have been really busy (but having fun as well). I will post some of the notebooks tomorrow. The rest of the week, I hope to finish the wedding scrapbook, make some premade mini scrapbooks, and other cards.
Halloween will be here before you know it!! I know a lot of people do not send Halloween cards, but I love Halloween stamps, paper, ribbon, etc... so I don't mind making them and sending them.. I just send to my family (and husband's)... which is about 12 cards... Also I have some made for my kids teachers. So I always try to have about 15-20 made just for myself. Here are a few that I have made.
Ok... this is my last day that I will bore you with the sample wedding scrapbook. Here are the rest of the pages that I have finished so far: This is one of my favorites.. this will be their final page of the scrapbook:
Here is a 2 page layout of the ceremony:
Here is a 2 page layout of the bride/groom family:
I am not sure if I will get anything else posted the rest of the weekend.. what little time I do have, I will be making some things for my craft show!! I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!!
I just listed 2 things on Art Fire. It is just like Etsy, however it is Free to list and sell.. which is really nice. Take a look: MY ARTFIRE Hopefully I will get some more things made this weekend and I will add them to my ArtFire!!! Happy Friday!!
I have been really working hard trying to finish my sample wedding scrapbook. Here are some layouts that I have recently finished. It showcases the bridal party (which was huge!). I didn't know how else to show all the bridesmaids and all of the groomsmen (individually with the bride or groom) except by using these squares. I think it worked out. What do you think?
Then I made seperate layouts with all of the girls together and all of the boys together. Notice the flower girl?? Isn't she the cutest.. yes that is my daughter Sydney!! Also, it is hard to tell, but one of the ring bearers is my son Robbie.
Coming up tomorrow.. more wedding layouts... I have to finish this so that I can show you some craft show projects. Enjoy your Friday!!
Here is a set of Post It note holders that I made to sell at my craft show. These make great anytime teacher presents. I was a teacher for 5 years and I can tell you that a teacher always needs post it notes!!! The rest of the week I will be working finishing the wedding scrapbook. I also need to work on more items for the craft show. I will be making notebooks, cards, scrapbooks, fabric gift bags, and many more things!! Stay tuned... I will be busy.
Ok... here they are... the post it note holders that I made for my craft show. I am going to sell them for $2.50 each. Last year, they were a hit!!! They make great gifts for friends, hostesses, little girls, or teachers. Tomorrow I will be posting the ones that I made for teachers. They are really cute!!
This set of post it note holders would be perfect for the tween or teenage girl. They would make GREAT stocking stuffers!! This is what it looks like when you open it!! Here is another set that would be perfect for a friend, a hostess, or a family member. Tomorrow I will post the teacher post it note holders! Enjoy the rest of your day!
