Something for ME!

Well the house actually, but that counts, right? I was reading some blogs this morning and stumbled upon this great Patchwork Plastic Bag Holder tutorial over at Retro Mama. Tutorial is originally from Saidos da Concha but Retro Mama throws in some nice helpful tips.

Now, I know your wondering, you don't really still use those things do you? And I can happily so no, not usually but there are the times that I forget my Chico Bags and have to use plastic. Or ya know, the hubby forgets. So I do end up using them for big messes that require on the spot garbage pick-up or in the bathroom trash cans.

Anyway, back to the tut. I'm not usually one to do patchwork because that takes time and I like quick stuff but I decided to give this a go and it turned out pretty good. Just don't look too close at my quilting.... seriously. I used a couple different prints. I'm not sure of all the specific names but they are from Cosmo Cricket, Michael Miller, and Amy Butler.

So get busy and go make yourself one!

Finally Fall

It's finally fall! Well, it seems to be for the time being here in NC. It seems like the weather is just so crazy sometimes that one day we are in the 90's and the the next the 70's. It seems like for now and we are in the low 70's and we are having those cool mornings and evenings. Fall seems to be the time when we do a lot of family activities together. We enjoy going to the farmers market, pumpkin patch and this past weekend, the zoo! The temperature was just right and the kids had a blast! So tell me, how do you spend your fall days?

What I've been up to...

These past few weekends have been filled with fun fall craft fairs! I've spend my weekdays creating new items to fill up my booth and the weekends selling my wares. I took this weekend off for my birthday and to have a little more time to make some new items.

And I even created something fun for my booth! A fun, colorful banner! It's cute and it makes my booth stand out from all the rest! Whenever I get some spare time (what is that?) I intend on making some smaller banners for the front of my tables.

I got this great idea from on of my favorite blogs, Craft + Show Designs. I seriously visit this blog weekly even though it isn't updated that often. It's a great blog to check out if you are looking for new display ideas or are a new craft fair person.

And next weekend I'll be back at it again at another fun fall festival! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
