Busy, Busy...

I've got a exciting weekend planned, but it's the getting there that causes me undo stress. On Saturday I will be exhibiting in the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival. I really love doing this show. It is so busy and I enjoy meeting new people and talking to them about my jewelry. This show typically draws a crowd of 8,000-10,000 and of course it has the absolute BEST setting...ocean front, although I'm on the street, but still close. As long as the weather holds it looks like a great day!

Last years booth display

This year I wanted to freshen up my booth a little and add a little color. I bought new fabric for the table skirts, and risers to give the tables a little lift. So this past week I was busy planning and sewing the table skirts. I don't have much to do at all, just hem really, however this small project gave me a fit! My sewing machine doesn't get much use, it's just an inexpensive model, just what I need to get me through the little bit of sewing that I do, but I had 20 yards to hem. UGH! It doesn't look like that much but MAN is that a lot of fabric. However, I finished and it looks great! Now to get all those wrinkles straightened away. I can't wait to see my booth set up in its entirety.

Me...heming...many, many yards of fabric

Today I might try and print labels to paste to the top of my boxes and/or bags. This is not a top priority for me although it should be, it would add my name to the outside of my packaging and possibly drive traffic to my booth. I'm hoping to get motivated!


  1. Your booth looks really great! You have way more patience than me when it comes to sewing...way to go!

  2. I can't wait to hear more about the event over the weekend! You were one busy bee getting ready. And you sew too!! I am in awe. It just really seems like a lot of work to get ready for big show like this (I have never done anything other than a craft show!). I hope it was a fun day with great customers too. :-)
