Craft Fair, Christmas

 I got to do a craft fair in November at a local church in town.  It was my first craft show since my boys were very young.. a good 18 years ago.. so I got my ideas together, which are always more than what I can ever do.. and this is what I went with.  I use to own a gift store, which I miss, so just the excitement of building a display, and visiting with people all day brought me great pleasure!

I brought my biscotti line, "Biscotti by Auntie B.B.", which is made by me at a local bakery in town, it is a business which I have had for a while now, I produce them year round, sell to some stores, local farmers' market, and individuals, and at the bakery that I use as my commissary kitchen, "Bagel Tyme", which is a family owned and operated bakery, that make the BEST bagels! Of course they were the biggest hit!
 I made some ornaments that I used from my workshop with my Stampin' Up! gals.  The cone ornament, embellished with ribbon, tulle, pearls and more.

The milk carton die filled with M&M's decorated another tree. The designer series paper was a retired one, butwas so darling all hanging together. Great way to use up that paper. Such a cute favor.

 I made this picture using the stamp "Christmas Collage" form the holiday mini, I hope they bring this back, I did so many things with this, I even made an ornament out of it and gave it to the owners of Bagel Tyme, they had their first grandchild this year, and punched out the 25, and put a picture of the baby. The topper is " Christmas Postcard".
All of these were in the Holiday Mini 2010.

Then I got on a roll, and brought out some retired sets, the background stamp and the rooster french set, and added it to "Artistic Etchings" which is new and came up with this. I really like the black and white combo. So French!

I made these pencil holders as well, which were really inexpensive to make.. I actually gave them to Santa to hand out to the kids on Christmas day at my brothers. Oranges included, just like Santa did for us!!!

 This is one of the displays.


  The darling children ornaments, build a house decorated house complete with snow, and an array of Christmas cards.
 All occasion cards as well, knitting cards and tags, sewing, birthday, ects.
 Display of fabric pins using the "Big Shot", Christmas tags.
Stampin' Up jewelry, and the new clear mount stamp sets on display, Homemade & Delicious cards.

The day was a fun day visiting with people and then off to host my sons birthday party that night.
