Flowers at convention & my Kitsap Arts & Crafts Festival booth

Look at all of the pretty flowers you can make with Stampin' Up! fabrics and card stock. They're amazing. We were shown a HUGE flower by Carrie Cudney at Convention 2012. I plan on making a few of those. They're just too fabulous!

The flower at the top right is made with a circle punch. The inside holds three vintage designer buttons.

The displays were so cute, with chalk-drawn frames around things like these birthday party favors with little jewelry tags.

I love what I do, AND I love this yard flag. There are two other flags to change out, too. I got this at Memento Mall at Convention. The stake unscrews into three pieces. This one is outside of my Stampin' Up! booth this weekend at the Kitsap Arts & Crafts Festival in Kingston (by the ferry terminal).

I love this space. It looks much bigger than the 10' x 10' size that it is. My idea to go with a boutique look at shows this year has really paid off. The shabby chic furniture holds a lot more than the 6'  and 4' tables I used last year, and I have more room inside my booth. Also, the lush green grass is much preferred over the dirt and crabgrass at last year's location. My BFF Kim helped fluff the booth. She's doing a great job keeping me company. We really have fun! Kim has cute fabric purses for sale and is bringing some die-cut card stock ones for Saturday. The Farmers' Market is at the same park Saturday, so I'm going a bit earlier (9 a.m.) to take advantage of that foot traffic. The festival - and live music and beer garden - will continue till 6 p.m.

Back to my booth: The designer series paper banner out front really draws people in because no one else has anything like it. One of the banners has an aluminum, chevron-embossed butterfly on it. It's really cute! We used Velco dots to adhere the banner, which makes it easy to put up and take down each day. A walking path is directly in front of my booth, perfect for people walking to and from the ferry, as well as those shopping at the festival.

Yep, it's pretty hard looking at this kind of view all day. *wink* In addition to getting a new club member today, I met the owner of a new tea shop in Poulsbo, as well as a Seattle folk singer (Hi, Ally!) who performed for us today. I sold out of headbands, with an order for more, and sold pinwheels, stamps, catalogs, and handmade cards. Life is good!

Your both looks fantastic, so much more interesting than things just arranged on tables! It takes more effort to get the different furniture there, but it looks great! Nice work!
