Well, the craft fair is over. It was a hit. I sold every last mustache so I'll have to make more for the next event on December 3rd. I sold notebook covers, tooth fairy tins, cards, retired stamps, coasters, and magnets. People signed up for classes and one person took home some info about becoming a demo. I would love to have someone new to share ideas with. It's always so much fun to take my idea and another person's idea and come up with a new one based on the two. Stampin' Up! has extended the Big Shot promotion until November 11th. If you sign up between now and the 11th, you get either a new Big Shot or $100 extra in merchandise of your choice. So if you already own the Big Shot, you can get some new dies, folders, embosslits, an alpha set or whatever. I'm here if you have questions. There are some answers on my website (link on left). My recruit password is love stampin should you decide to sign up in the middle of the night

There are many styles. Lots of people love mustaches. Some of the world's and literary's famous and infamous men have sported a mustache. Who would Hercule Poirot be without his handlebar mustache? Imagine a poster of Einstein minus his. What about Burt Reynolds? No, he just wouldn't be the same without one. Stampin' Up! has jumped on the bandwagon of the recent fun with mustaches. They have a new stamp that came onto the scene with the new Idea Book & Catalog for 2011-2012. It's a single wood mount stamp and it's called 'Many Mustaches'. I've been having lots of fun with it. I've even made some for my craft fair. Everybody can have a mustache or at least one on paper. I'm looking forward to seeing people walking around the craft fair with their mustaches. I have black and brown this time. I might have to try some Real Red or Cajun Craze when it gets closer to March. Give me a call and I'll share other ideas with you.

Tis the season.....for craft fairs. This year I'm doing Hannah's Hope again. It's a fundraising event for First Steps of NW Indiana and Children's Neurobiological Foundation. Both of these agencies help families and their children who have special needs. It's a good cause and I get to sell my handmade stamped items. This year I have Tooth Fairy tins. These are new to me. I made some before using the Matchbox die but I needed to use up these tins I've been hoarding. I think these are too cute, what do you think?
I hope everybody likes these. Post a comment to be entered into my drawing. This month I'm giving away a set of holiday themed goodies. I'll post a picture later.
