It rained on and off for pretty much the whole day on Saturday, making for a very wet craft fair. I of course forgot my camera, so I have no pictures of my booth or any of the other vendors. I did ok, making my booth fee back, but since it was an outdoor fair, there wasn't much traffic. I was a little disappointed, but at least I have a lot of stock now, both for my etsy shop and upcoming shows.

We also had a surprise birthday party for my mother in law Saturday night. It was my job to keep her away until the party, which was almost foiled by the rain. I had to convince her to go shopping on the way home and stay out for almost 4 hours. I was nervous that it wasn't going to work, but in the end it was the perfect distraction. She was completely surprised and it was a great party.

Yesterday I got to hang out with my sister in law and her two kids who were visiting from Florida. We were able to get pictures taken of all my leftovers from the show to put up in my etsy shop. I always think that getting photos is half the battle.

Anyway, today I am relaxing after a packed weekend and attending to a sick child. Hopefully we'll both get some rest today. Eventually I'll have my shop updated with everything from the show. I've already started this morning. Check it out here if you're interested. Happy Monday friends!

Ugh I did a rainy craft show once and I know how you feel! I'll be looking for your lunch bags on Etsy!

I love all of your stuff, especially those ruffled wristlets! I'm hoping you have one left to put in your shop (so I can buy it!)
