Crafters Showcase

So, I was looking through the Cincinnati Enquirer in the classifieds. (I'm looking for a part-time job.) And I found an ad for a craft show put on by the Forest Park Women's Club. I was very brave and called the number in the ad. The very nice lady that answered my call told me all about the upcoming show. It's at Winton Woods High School on October 27th. She asked me what I make and I told her handmade cards. She said they sound beautiful. They have between 80 and 90 booths and the show runs from 9am to 3pm. I received my application for a booth today in the mail. I am so EXCITED!!!!! I absolutely love to make cards. If I can make some money doing what I love, I will be thrilled.

So, I am frantically "stamping my art out!" I have to buy a lot of cardstock and envelopes! I hope to have 300 to 500 cards ready to sell!

Today my plan was to make 10 cards. I finished 12 and stamped card fronts for 20 more. So, I am on my way to my first craft show. ( I feel so cool.)

Also, I got my 20 minute walk in this morning. And I ran about 7 minutes of it. I was nice and sweaty and happy when I finished.

(I love having the kids back in school. It is so much easier to get my housework done with less bodies in the house!!!! HOORAY!)

You are quite the WOMAN Maura! Be sure to blog about the craft show when it gets closer so that we all know more about where your goods will be for sale ;) Good luck tomorrow!

How awesome are you?!! Wow! You are inspiring me to want to accomplish something today. However, that inspiration is coming to a head to head wrestling match with the part of me that wants to go lay down and take a nap!

I want to come to the craft show!

Very impressive. I walked Ryan to school(about 2 blocks) and I was wiped out for the day. Your cards are always so cute and creative I'm sure it will be a great success.
