2010 Fall-Winter Craft Fair #3

Craft show #3 was a total bust. I guess it wasn't the right audience. I was very surprised to see how many "home businesses" were vendors there (Avon, Tastefully Simple, Pampered Chef, etc.), considering it was a "craft" show. I was expecting more homemade items. At least I made up my table fee. I have one more the first week of December and then another one in December that I'm still waiting to hear back on. There's still time to make this a good season!

When I was loading my car up to go home from the craft fair, I was surprised and happy to see that the weather outside was lovely! To burn off some of the frustration lingering from today's craft fair, I decided to gear up with my new knee length running tights and go for a 1.7 mile run. I hope the weather stays for a few days before the real cold settles in. It's been 2 week since I've been doing any sort of running, so it was nice to get the legs going today.

I decided to scrap the card that I made last night. I thought there was something wrong with the color combination when I looked at the card again tonight, and that sentiment was confirmed by my sister. At least I can use the sketch again for some other card. My goal was to complete the order for my co-worker. My personal favorite is the top right one.
