It's almost time...

The time is getting closer for my first ever craft show...I am nervous and excited...I finished my apron yesterday...look who's modeling it...let's just say she's not happy to model an apron...I kept it pretty simple...it's a working apron...I made it out of canvas with lots of pockets... there's a side pocket with a flap for all the money I'll be making...oh don't I wish...and pockets for business cards and my cell phone and an extra one for a pen and paper...
I needed to jazz it up a bit so I used the logo from my labels and stitched my name on there too...I think I like how it came out. I was going to add rick rack around it...but it looked too busy...I think simple is best sometimes. So now that my apron's done...I feel like I'm ready as I ever will be! I would have liked to have more inventory...but because my bags are so time consuming...and some people would call me a perfectionist...I don't...so look out Costa Mesa...here I come!! If you are in the area...stop by...if just to say hi! This show is so much fun...there's music, great food...and lots of talented artisans...it's in the parking lot of Piecemakers on Adams...
Now on to a completely different topic...notice on my sidebar that I have a Facebook page now...isn't that cool! The lovely Anna got it started for me and now I have to keep up with it...if you are on Facebook...and you "like" my page I am going to have a giveaway when all this craziness is over! You can "like" me now if you like...I am going to include all those that already have. I will give you more details next week...
Now back to work...enjoy the day, my friends!!!

I'm excited for you and I love that apron! I really hope it goes well and your things are so gorgeous that I don't see how it can't as long as people show up. You really can't control that one. I'm looking forward to the post show report!
