Well this is what I've been working on for the past several weeks.  I'm going to do my first craft show this coming weekend.  I don't know what will sell or if anything will but I'm going to see:)  At least I'll know how to set up everything and to see what else I need to display my items.  The diaper cake was something I've been wanting to try and make and for my first time I'm ok with the way it turned out.  I'm not quite sure how to price my items yet except for the Tooth Fairy Pillows that I usually sell for $5.00.  Any suggestions on pricing any of it?????

I Spy Bags that I've made for the craft show.  I put my business card on a piece of ribbon and on the back of the business card I list the items.  Then I sew the ribbon onto the bag attached with a button.  That way they won't lose my card or the list of items they'll be looking for in the bag:)

I've been making a few candy dishes that I saw on Pinterest and fell in love with them.  They are the taller ones.  The others are made from candle holders and antique pie plates to put cake slices or other desserts at supper on.  These are so pretty on the table and just add a little more interest.  The ones I chose where of old fine china. I love the conversations these bring on:)

I've been busy tonight making pacifier holders that have a string of beads and clip to hold the Pacifier on to clothing. I finished about 8 of them and have about 10 ready for the bead work. I need to run to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to pick up a few more items to complete the others. I only have two weeks for the craft show and have several more things to make.  Trying to do 1 thing a night but looks like it's going to take 2 nights for these.

I have been busy this weekend as it's my 34th Wedding Anniversary and I spent it going to the beach to my cousin's wedding.  My husband on the other hand was fishing a tournament Sat. and Sun. and my daughter's boyfriend caught the biggest fish:) My daughter and Son In Law also went to the wedding with me and while he drove I was busy in the back seat making Tooth Fairy Pillows. Here is what I have made so far and all I have to do to these is to sew up the stuffing hole.  Then I have 18 more to stuff!! I'm trying to make up some crafts in the next two weeks to do a Craft Show at OK don't laugh,but it's called FROG TOWN POTTERY.  I'm also making some Shabby Chic clipboards and some other items I'll show you later. PS My Dad got a great report that the treatments are working and now 17 more to go. Thanks for your prayers!  I just noticed that on the clips I wrote pins. I love looking at these things after you post and see the goof ups:)

The top house is the most expensive house in Charleston SC at $11 million dollars. The picture on the bottom is one of the oldest Churches in Charleston and it's a little spooky the way the light hit it in this picture. We took a horse and carriage tour and it was wonderful. I really enjoyed my trip and as soon as I got home GIRLS I started sewing:) and crafting and I will share later!!

Thank you for your prayers for Dad.  He has started his treatments and hope it works.   Now for the fun part I took him to Boone to the mountains last weekend and we are now in Charleston S.C.:  I think I will take him to wedding next weekend at the beach.  He has treatments 5 days a week so the weekends are ours to do whatever he wants. He's talking about going to see Elvis place next.  While he can still see shadows I'll take him until it's just not safe.
