My booth is set up!

I was so nervous/excited/scared/excited to set up my booth at River City Gift Shoppe today. I had to do a last minute packaging change from how I packaged my bowl fillers at the Spring Fling because amazingly this house doesn't have a stapler. So out came the ball of twine and a quick stop to Office Max for tags.

I'm not 100% happy with hanging them, but I can't think of another idea other than setting them on more shelves. I do think I have a few thrift store make-overs that I can take (they were kind enough to loan me the one in the photos). And heck, maybe the shelves will sell too! I'm going to look into boxes (candy or small bakery boxes) because the bags are driving me absolutely nuts.

I know it looks sparse, but I didn't know what to take and also did want to take too much, lol.

I'm excited to start stitching again as well. A little birdy suggested penny rugs which really gets me excited! I also have some muslin candle mat patterns that I've never stitched and have been itchin to get started on.

It was also my 34th birthday today so it made it extra fun to go and set up the booth. I know it's not really a booth, but I don't know what else to call it. I ran some errands afterward and then picked the kiddo up from an after school track and field party. Only two more days of school for him! I can't believe my baby will be going to the high school next year. Eek! The boys took me to Wendy's (my request) and we also made an appointment for me to do something really exciting on Saturday. I can't wait to share that with you, but you will have to wait to find out. I think most of you will be shocked. I'm a little shocked myself. Hee hee.

So that's that. I'm one year older and since I started exercising again last week, I really feel it! : )

the little boxes you sent my bowl fillers in worked really well. I think your things should sell well. I l-o-v-e the bowl fillers so much.
