Getting Ready . . .

for the local Fall Craft Show!

Morning Everyone!  WOW ... can you believe we are into September already!?!
That means I'd better get busy preparing for the upcoming annual craftshow at our local high school.  This will be my 4th year of doing the show and I always try to make something 'different' to showcase besides my usual cards and gift card holders.  

This year I've decided to make KIDS KARD KITS.
Individual, simple kits that the kids can color and glue together themselves for their friends birthday and even a Christmas card for Grandma/Grandpa.  So far I have four different 'birthday' kits put together (12) of each.  They will have all the pieces necessary to make the completed card which I've shown in picture form in the back of the pack.

as well as an inside view.

Here are the other sets I have ready to go ... (all are birthday) ... I'm working on the Christmas sets.

I thought this might even be a cute idea as a Stocking Stuffer.
OH ... and on the back of each card blank I have stamped "Made By" ... so they can put their name.

Well, I'd better get back to work!  I think hubby is planning a LONG vacation sometime in October (he hasn't confirmed that with me yet, LOL) so I'd better have everything ready for my show just in case he tells me to "pack a bag we are going on a trip!!"  He's RETIRED now you know and I'm never quite sure what he has up his sleeve!  But whatever it is .... I'M THERE!!  LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you're having a fabulous holiday weekend!

FYI ... only a few more days remaining to sign up for my Blogaversary Candy giveaway ... be sure to check out the details and get signed up!  Drawing will be Sept. 5th (grandson's 15th birthday).
