Happy Labor Day

I know I'm a little late in wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day but better late than never.
My day started off with a call from work at 6 a.m. The girl that was scheduled didn't show up so they wanted me to go in. I was only there for 2 hours though. The other girl ended up calling in and saying she got up late so she was there by 8.
Other than that I worked on some of my craft show stuff.
I made a display stand for my necklaces out of cardboard and felt. Looks pretty good I think. Wade even commented on how good it looked several times.

another look at it from the side. I should have closed up the ends somehow but I'm going to leave it as is.


I made 2 more of the plaques or whatever you want to call them.

I also finished a few other things. I'm real close to my original goal. I may not make it but I did enough to take a pretty good inventory of items with me.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

Woof! Woof! Looks soooooo nice. What a clever way to create a stand out of cardboard ... Golden Thanks for the idea. When is the craft show and where did you get the chains for the necklaces? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I had to work also, tearing down camp and finally coming home.Love the necklaces, make sure to have 22-25 inch chains to exchange if they need.

All I can say is WOW - absolutely gorgeous work tfs

Lin said...

Well, bummer that you went in, but cool that she came in later. You can look at it that you looked good for stepping up to come in and help, right? And it got you up and moving--when you could have been sleeping in. ugh.

LOVE your stuff!! When is the craft show??

You are doing great! I'm going to be really interested in how you do with these things. The display does look nice.

Ugh on the early morning call from work! At least you didn't have to be there long! You made great progress on your necklaces! They look great and your stand is fabulous! I might have to make me one of those! If you put some felt on the cardboard showing, no one will know and the sides can remain open.

DebbieM said...

They all look great, Ann. We are almost ready now!! Three day week, get together to plan it all out, and pray for no rain!!! Everyone, pray for no rain!!!

Reeni said...

Your stand is great!! And your necklaces adorable! Happy Labor Day!

Donna said...

Everything looks terrific! You should be in good shape!

Beautiful ... try a little tiny pot of silk flowers in the end of your display - might work.

Have fun creating!

Ann, you really are so incredibly talented. The stand is great looking and the purple pendant on the end stands out to me--it is so gorgeous! The plaques show off your talent because there is no denying all of those tiny swirls!!

Ginny said...

The display stand is really professional, and I love the choice of color. You have made so many beautiful things, I especially love the bird necklace!!!

SweetMarie said...

The display stand is very nice, but WOW your necklaces are so BEAUTIFUL! You are very talented Ann. Glad you didn't have to work very long. ;)

Jen said...

Love the display (you clever girl! ;o) I wouldn't worry about the ends; they won't show much. You have done an amazing job so far and I love those little happy hangers (I don't know what to call 'em either *laugh*).

Dr Sonia S V said...

Ann what a fantastic collection I love each and every bit you have shared!

Marg said...

Gosh, everything looks so good. The necklaces look terrific and we like the other decorations too. You are doing so good Ann. Hugs to Duke.

FishHawk said...

I sure hope Wade was duly rewarded for his efforts (along with Duke, of course).

Sher said...

I love those necklaces and I think they will sell very well. That stand you made is so clever. It really shows off the necklaces.

Anne said...

I hope you had a happy labor day! I think your projects look amazing! I think it will be really successful.

Donna said...

All you have to do is get some tissue (the kind you wrap gifts with) and stuff a piece inside the holes...Yellow paper would look pretty, purple, green...you be the judge! Wa-laaaa...holes AND cardboard bottoms are covered!

I knew you'd pull this off. Good for you. Sorry about you having to work for 2 hours on your day off though. Just saying.

Have a terrific day and I hope your Labor Day was fabulous too. My best to Duke. :)
