Craft Show Projects . . .

 . . . are underway!

Hello Friends!
Over the weekend I got busy thinking & creating for the upcoming Spring
Shows I'm signed up for.  The first show of the year is a private show
which entertains about 150 - 180 ladies.  Since I see this group twice a year
I try to have something a little 'different' to share with them
along with my usual cards and tissue box covers.

Here's what I worked on for this years Spring Gala . . .

These are Tea Bag Booklets that can also double as a gift card holder. 

I was able to create 5 dozen of these including a dozen I made for those ladies who attend this function supporting the Red Hat Society. I will also be working on Red Hat single cards and card sets for these ladies as they are always expecting me to have them available to them.  

Another little giftie item are these Reese's Mini Pouches.
Created with springtime ribbons and papers.

 I usually make these pouches in the Fall using Hershey Nuggets
and Christmas papers/ribbons but I thought this might be a cute little
Springtime 'something ... something' .
I was able to create 18 pouches from 1 family size bag of Reese's ... 
not sure this will be enough so I might go back out for a 2nd bag.

My mojo's & drive have been lacking a bit lately but with the beautiful
weather we had over this past weekend, I've been rejuvenated!!
Got some windows washed, a little yard clean up started and went
to town on these little projects ... YAY!!!  I was started to get worried!  LOL

Till then and as always . . .

Donna Phelan said...

WOW! I don't know how you do it all.....and you do do it all! lol These are great items, I bet they will be snatched right up! Call me if you need that Brinks Truck number afterwards, I hope you do! ;)

I absolutely love what you did here!! You must have a lot of energy!!! Just perfect little packets of fun!! Have a huge success at your show - I can't imagine it would not be - I know I would be at your table for sure!!!! Big Hugs!

You? Lacking mojo and drive? Ha! Never happen! I can tell you right now these items will be a big hit. Those tea bag holders are gorgeous! The images would draw a person right in. And the Reeses goodies all tied up with pretty ribbon would be so cute tucked into an Easter basket. The sunny, warm weather does have a way of energizing a person. The time you spent working outside probably really gave you a boost. I need a project, so it's time to start painting the stamp room!
