My First Craft Show Experience

I did it! I finally entered into a craft show with a great friend of mine just before Christmas and to say the least it was simply fantastic. I loved everything about the whole experience and learned some things that I should do to prepare better for next year. Even though we decided to enter the craft show just weeks before spur of the moment actually I am so happy we did.

There were so many things I noticed for example how many people truly love handmade items which is just amazing. Their was such a variety of different crafts that people had created it was eye opening to see the hard work and dedication that goes into the work that people put their heart and soul into. We interacted with some of the other individuals that had booths and everyone was very nice and just made you feel comfortable all around. This really helped me because I was so nervous not knowing what to expect or really how I was going to approach the whole thing. So this is what my table looked like.

I had my crochet items and also made some little girls headbands that I just loved making. My friend had a table as well and she makes the most beautiful afghans and probably the nicest cowls that I have ever seen. I was lucky enough that she gave a cowl to myself and my daughter and we both love them to bits.

My husband also had made me a great set up to display my crochet hats that was just wonderful and worked out perfectly. I also made some cute little display holders for my headbands and got this idea from Pinterest which is no surprise I seriously love Pinterest.

So overall I have to say I loved the whole craft show experience from start to finish. My friend and I had a great time and I am looking forward to our next craft show adventures in the future.

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!

My Personal Crochet Favourites

Happy Friday everyone! I am crocheting another project at the moment but took a few minutes today to look through some of my crochet pieces that I have made while trying to put together my new craft room as well. The craft room is coming along however there are still so many things I want to do before revealing the finished outcome.

I decided to post three of my favourite crochet pieces that I have made and looking back at them just made me smile!

My pug hat is at the top of my list of course as I have two amazing little pugs Tiffany and Rosie.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Crochet Hats

I loved the look of these cute crochet hats with a pom pom that I spotted on Pinterest. So I decided to give it a try and I think they would make a wonderful gift for a friend or family member.

This was a very easy and quick crochet project and something I would definitely make again.
Have a fantastic day everyone!

Creating A Craft Room

I am very excited that a spare room we have is being turned into a craft room! There is so much still to be done but I thought I would share a little bit of what is happening. The room walls are going to be painted as soon as possible but we have been painting some old pieces of furniture and building some items as well.

I have never had so much fun creating something that has been just for me, I mean my own personal space where I can enjoy creating and just have fun with it. I have searched so many ideas for craft rooms and found so many incredible ideas and designs and will use a few of them for sure.

My husband has been such an amazing help which is no surprise because he knows how much I enjoy my crafts and it keeps me busy when I am having a day when I feel good enough to create some projects. So I put together a few pictures of some of the peices we have painted and the room that is being done, also a few little crafts that I have made that I will add to the craft room.

The table and little hutch are items that we have had for a long time and really did not use at all so I thought this would be a great time to spruce them up a bit and get some use out of them. The other items we actually purchased at garage sales and I am so excited about this because I have spent next to nothing for all of the items that we have purchased.

This is what I have done so far and have really enjoyed trying to create little projects that I have never done before that I spotted on so many wonderful blogs and pinterest. Well that is it for now and I will post some photos when the craft room is complete and ready to use.

Have a fantastic day everyone!
