the day finally came (crafty supermarket)

What an amazing experience! Ladybear (Rachael Smith) and I embarked on our first craft fair not exactly sure what to expect. Will people like us? Will we make any sales? Will we make some new friends? The answers are yes, yes and YES!

It surpassed my expectations. I made some great new connections, bought some amazing crafty goods from talented neighbors, and learned a great deal about vending and myself! The fact that my jewelry sold was just a footnote to it all!

Thanks so much to everyone that came out to support us! It absolutely means everything to me.

Here's some shots from our big day:

This is our lovely assistant Rachel Scheller. She's the best!

first peak, a test run

I gave my Crafty Supermarket booth set up a dry run this afternoon. I spent more time than was necessary arranging everything just so. I photographed it a dozen times, so I can duplicate the set up. Then I had my mom, dad, brother, soon to be sister-in-law, and best friend over to have a look at it. They ooohed and ahhhed appropriately.

I think it looks pretty swell, and I can't wait to get down the the Crafty Supermarket on Saturday, and sell next to all those extremely gifted artists and crafters! I'm so happy and anxious.
Also, I would like to take a minute to recognize my favorite ladies who came over and spent hours wrapping little metal rings, stuffing shopping baggies, making buttons, and keeping the atmosphere light. Thanks so much Maria, Allison, Tessa & Alissa. You guys are the best friends a girl could ask for!

one night in Chicago

... and I wish we had stayed longer! Here's a couple of shots from a roadtrip that I took with my husband and our good friend to see Spoon and Deerhunter.

This was our awesome room at the Hotel Sax.
waiting for our train. you can see the Aragon Ballroom sign in the left corner through the window.

What? I'm a junior zookeeper.
Girafe Boy, Bear Head and Penguin Girl... No idea how we didn't get kicked out of that zoo gift shop!

I couldn't wait to get home today. This is because I knew I had Yellowberry's business cards waiting for me in the mail when I got there. In addition to that my super-rad cousin, Chris, called me to let me know I could pick up my signage from his sign shop, SelectSigns.

Both turned out just perfect! There's few more things crossed off my Crafty Supermarket To-Do list. Check 'em out!
