Just wanted to share with you what's been taking up all my time lately, and also the explanation for my absence of blog posts. I've was working hard preparing for a craft show that took place this weekend called Woodlake Days. It was really my first experience being a craft show vendor, and I definitely learned a lot about it. I kept my notebook with me so I could jot down ideas for the next show as I thought of them.
I covered my table with a ruffled light pink bed skirt and a vintage table cloth in pink and white floral that belonged to my great grandmother. I used vintage plates, trays, and a cake stand to display most of my jewelry.
I covered some wooden blocks with patterned papers and used a label maker to display the prices for different items. I kind of like the way they turned out, even though the font was a little small. And the lights over my booth were really putting a glare on the label tape so it was hard to get a good picture. I'm planning to make several label stickers that say 'blueheart' to label my wooden hangers for the next show.
And I borrowed a few earring displays from my boyfriends parents at the last minute and I'm thinking I really need to invest in some myself, the round one was perfect.
I used wooden hangers for all of my clothing. The tags I used for my clothing and some of my jewelry were stamped with a vintage sewing machine that was custom made for me here and I absolutely adore it. I also have a larger stamp that is similar but has a cursive 'blueheart' on it. I love them.
I found this vintage suitcase at a flea market this summer. I loved it but couldn't decide what I would do with it if I bought it. While I was trying to decide the guy came up and offered me a really good deal. I figured it must be meant to be, so it came home with me. I displayed my journals in it for the craft show. I made some doily labels to display the different types of filler papers. And I strung a 'BHB' garland across the top.
I feel like the show went pretty good. I feel like it was a good first time and I'm already looking forward to the next one. I even met another Etsy memeber, she's only had her shop open for about a month, but her fabric necklaces are so cute.
