My First Craft Fair


I'm off today to participate in my first craft fair. It was a last minute thing -- at first they said they were full, and then called yesterday with an opening. Fortunately, I expected to be in one next weekend so I had everything pretty much ready including my account to take credit cards and a credit card machine.


I've spent most of the past year creating premade scrapbooks which is what I hope to sell.
The pictures above are what I'll be selling in addition to that -- vintage cards, some mini chipboard albums, etc.
Note to Tag Tuesday Participants: I'd like to do a "Colors of Christmas" challenge for a couple weeks. I'd appreciate your ideas for colors or color combinations.

Thanks for sharing a photograph of all the beautiful hand made creations you hope to sell - wishing you lots of luck and a beautiful, favorable day!
For a color combo for a Christmas tag (although you probably know already) I love the pink/burgundy/beige/brown combo - it can look quite traditional and vintage at the same time. Just a suggestion.

Hmmm...colors for a Christmas tag? Deep reds, greens, golden yellow, chocolate brown ... Or, blue, green, cranberry ...
