Craft Fair Creations

Hi there, Stampin' Friends!

Tell me – do you like craft fairs?  I looovvve craft fairs!  I love going to them as a shopper, I love being a vendor at them – and I love buying gifts at them!  It always amazes me when I see the wonderful hand made creations at craft fairs – really, everything there you know is a labour of love – 'cause no one is getting rich quick by selling their goods at a craft fair! lol

Craft fairs always help put me in the holiday mood; shopping at a craft fair is much more enjoyable than the hustle, bustle and crowds at the mall – and the gifts you buy at  a craft fair are so much more personal – you choose something because you just know that it's perfect for a certain someone!

You've probably guessed by now that I'm going to be participating in some craft fairs this holiday season!! (what was your first clue, right?! lol!!)  Although the first 2 aren't until next month, there's a lot of preparation that goes into being a vendor at a craft fair, so I've already started on my creations!

Want to see what I've been working on?  Are you sure?! Okay!!  I'll show you! 🙂

First, I decided that Rudolph just has to make an appearance at my display – so I started working on him…

 

And then added chocolate, and he turned into this!  Yummy Hershey nugget holders!  Yumm!!  Everyone loves chocolate (don't they?) and it seems that at Christmas, it's almost mandatory to give someone chocolate!

 

Of course, if you're giving gifts, you have to have tags for your gifts – how embarrassing to give someone the wrong gift!  So, Santa is here to help out!

 

His 'beard' opens up, so you can write your "To" and "From" inside!

Well, what do you think so far?  I have a lot more projects to work on, but I'd love to hear from you – what kind of gifts do you look for when you go to a craft fair? 

The first 3 people to leave a comment here (on this post) will receive some of my craft fair creations – just for sharing your thoughts!  Don't forget to leave your email, so I can contact you to get your address to send you your goodies!

See you tomorrow – until then – happy stamping!
