I couldn’t wait to post my crappy video and photos from the craft fair :P. I don’t know why the video ended up so low in quality once uploaded to YouTube…I gotta try to figure that out for future posts. I created a new YouTube account for my Twinkie Chan videos: TwinkieChanTV. I had a plain old TwinkieChan account that I mostly used for Bibi videos (hehhe) but I will now post my people videos to the new account.
Anyway, here is a video snippet from the show. Sorry again it’s so fuzzy. Also sorry again for the shaky, nausea-inducing, Blair Witch camera work. I get self-conscious about shooting video of my own booth, and I do it as quickly as possible!
We went with a food cart – theme. I put most of the scarves in a chaffing tray and a lemon slice scarf in a pitcher :). The table display itself could use some fine-tuning, but overall I think we did a great job considering this was all put together in like 4 days after work! Here is a funny sketch I made of the cart before we built it!
We shared our booth space with Elsie, Emma, and Red Velvet Art. They are cute as can be, and so super sweet. They are very special gals, and I was so excited to meet them even though I was cracked out on sleep deprivation and could not form language very well! You can see Elsie’s photos and thoughts on the fair here for DAY ONE and DAY TWO.
And now…. my photos!!
I made my banner out of felt and glue at 10am after an all-nighter. I’m shocked you can recognize the letters! Hehehe.
We made this little chalkboard sign out of two pieces of wood, some hinges, and chalkboard paint! I was kinda like, “Ugh, I don’t have the brainpower to deal with this little project!” but Hairy insisted and it turned out super cute.
Here’s a side view of the cart. As it turned out, the rear/tail-lights end of the cart was more visible in our final configuration. We had headlights in front!
Here’s the other side. You can sorta see me and Elsie chatting inside!
The front! And Elysse’s BUTT:
Blurry pic of my cupcake tower of coffee cup cozies. As it turns out, the cupcake had angled surfaces and this was not a stable platform for the cozies, so they kept tumbling down…
I recently became obsessed with shopping for vintage lucite beads, and I made some stretchy bracelets on Friday before the show. A lot of my favorites were purchased at the fair, but there are some left overs I think I may keep for myself! Heheh.
I never made rings before, but I am kind of into it!!! Espesh if they look like jello!
CutieDynamite came by for a visit and gave me a little piece of hair candy. It put it on right away!!! So sweet!
Here’s a pic of me and Hairy that I stole from ZenCupcake whom I also met for the first time! She’s so energetic and so nice! Check out how my big my face is compared to Hairy’s!
Here’s Emma, Me, Elsie, and Vivianna!
Overall, I was so happy with how the booth physically turned out, and I really enjoyed meeting lots of new faces. It’s fun to see people from 6 year olds to 60 year olds feel delighted by your work. One little kid exclaimed “Everything is so yummy!” and another woman commented, “How can you not feel happy looking at all this?”
Thank you everyone for visiting!!!
To those who could not make it: I will be working hard to shoot photos of items leftover and getting them onto Etsy :).
