Pymatuning Lake Festival 2015

I don't have a whole lot to show you because honestly our items haven't really changed from last year. Let me just say it was a gorgeous weekend. We could not have asked for better weather. It was warm and sunny all weekend long and not one drop of rain. Temperatures were mid to high 80's.

Debbie and I have been wanting to get a picture of the two of us standing in our booth for a couple years now and we always forget. Sunday morning we finally remembered. We had Cindy, who was in the next booth take a picture for us.


Now we just need to get one where I don't look like a tubby midget with big arms and bad hair :) It was hot setting up and I forgot I had my hair clipped up. Oh well, that's me. Oh and I'm not wearing a black skirt those are capris.


And here's one of just the booth



What's that sign you ask? Well here let me give you a closer look. Isn't this awesome? Debbie had this made. We are officially Crow Cabin Creations. Debbie is the brains of the operation and I just make stuff.

Since neither one of us did much crafting over the past year we gave ourselves a little challenge. So that we will have new items for next year, each of us will pick one new thing to make each month. For the entire month we'll make as many of that item as we want or have time for. Hopefully it will get me more motivated the next twelve months to be creative.

Oh and you're probably wondering how I did sales wise. Well lets just say I won't be retiring any time soon but I didn't lose any money on the weekend. As far as I'm concerned, whether sales are good or bad, if I had fun it was a successful weekend and I did have fun.

Your booth looks wonderful...and so do you! The sign is awesome...very "official" looking.
I think it's a wonderful idea to plan on making multiples of one thing a month. I may borrow that idea!

And having fun is what it's all about. I'm glad it was a fun weekend for you.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you and my very best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

I'm hesitated to do out door show. You booth looked nice very inviting. I'm doing the same thing making different items each month. I leave making card toward the end.

So well done. I think the crafting challenge will ease the stress of having to put together 'stock' before the next show. I like how you look with your hair back.

Love the name and the sign! You're brave for being outside in that heat all weekend!

The booth and the gals look GREAT! It looks very inviting and the sign really helps too. Good idea.

The challenge is a great idea! I once thought of trying to make a certain number of bracelets a month and then a number of earrings the next. I ended up making nothing. I really need to work on that! I think you look great!
