Liverpool Craft Extravaganza - Weather Permitting

I am both excited and admittedly a little stressed about my first craft fair tomorrow. While I have been preparing for it for a while, there just doesn't seem to be enough time to complete all the fun crafty ideas running through my head. I have most of the items ready for the display, now if the weather will just cooperate. We are supposed to get lots of rain and possible flooding, but I guess I will wait until 6:30 am to assess the park and make the call! At this point I am leaning toward just setting up with what I have and winging it... :)

I have been wanting to make some of these adorable little framed Weekly Planners and I am so glad I did! This is only a small part of what I will have in the booth. I will have greeting cards, with the concentration on Father's Day, Birthdays, Graduation, Wedding and Baby as well as some generic greetings. I will have home decor items and some very adorable mini albums. Anyone that has seen them so far wanted to buy them right there on the spot. I told them I could make more but needed them for my booth or it would be empty! haha 

In addition to ready to buy items, I will have some retired product and used Stamp Sets for sale for a reduced price.  I will also have samples of my workshops in the event you would like to see what's included in my monthly events!  There will, of course, be a Door Prize... so make sure if you stop by you drop your name in for a chance to win!

Check out the Weekly Planner though... so cute... you just write with a dry erase pen, erase and start over.  It would be awesome to have a chore chart done this way to match a child's room or a Honey Do list, or even a meal planner to match the kitchen... the possibilities are endless and they look so much nicer than a paper list:

Stop by and visit PaperHugz if you get a chance and the weather is nice!  I hope to see you there!  It's always nice to see a friendly face!
