Surviving the Craft Fair

I am sorry for the lack of postings these past few weeks. I was swamped with craft fair happenings, and trying to get a booth together. I am kind of in a lull right now, and it's weird...I feel like I should be doing something, but there isn't anything really to do...so I am trying to take this time and rest a bit:o) Breathe a little..
So anyway, last Saturday our little homemaker group hosted hopefully the first of many craft fairs. I decided I wanted to have a booth. This is what mine looked like....more like an antique booth instead of a craft fair booth...lesson learned:o) I didn't sell a whole lot, which stunk, but I got to see so many people I haven't seen in quite some time, and that was the best part of the entire day.
 Here is one of my fellow homemakers...we didn't have the matching blue homemaker shirts, so we were the odd balls with our black on:o)
This is one of the pieces of furniture I painted for the craft fair. 
It started out like this...minus the fleur de lis in the center. I found a pattern online, and printed it out on some left over vinyl. I carefully cut it out and applied it to the table. I used Krylon's Avocado. 
 I really liked how it turned out.
 Notice that beautiful stone patio underneath the table? We are one step closer to making the back yard beautimous:o)
The table didn't sell in the craft fair, so if anyone is interested in it, just shoot me an email!!
Hoping to share some more of my recent crafts in the very near future!
