Spring Craft Fair

Apologies for the delay in posting! I've been working on projects to sell at a Spring Craft Fair held at a local Country Club this w/end. I thought you might like to see some examples of the things I made. This is a desk-set made from SU's Afternoon Tea DSP.
The Post-It Note Holder is a clear acrylic 6"x4" photo frame. I inserted 2 layers of A/Noon Tea DSP into the frame and then stuck half a post-it pad to the front using the red double-sided tape. I then cut a strip of the same paper and inserted it into the barrel of an RSVP pen. The giant paper clip is from Staples, I used my cuttlebug die cut flowers and some thin chipboard to make the topper, again using the same DSP. Last but not least is the binder clip (I love these!) which is so simple, Afternoon Tea DSP and 2 primas with a pearl in the middle. All the ribbon is Soft Sky's Double Stitched Ribbon which coordinates with the DSP.
I also made tiles, candles, photo frames, lots of binder clips and paper clip bookmarks, lots of the acrylic frame post-it holders with matching pens. Fun! So that's why I haven't been posting ... now the craft fair is another story!!! Let's just say that once I'd finished all my bits and pieces and got myself over there, I was barred from attending due to my clothing attire. No, I wasn't in a white mini-skirt and bikini top ... it was just my jeans they objected to ... and they sent me away, totally humiliated I might add! Still, at least I have a basement full of goodies to sell if I ever pluck up courage to do another craft fair!!!

I love the projects. I agree that those snobs just don't know what they are missing out on.

This set is so cute! I love doing these kind of sets, and this one looks so adorable. Just keep that smile on your face, and show them what you're made of!
