Craft Show!!!


Hello ladies...Yes I'm still here!
I had a Craft Show this past weekend and I'm still exhausted from all the work that went into it lol!

Although I love selling my homemade craftiness, it's so exhausting...
If you've ever done it, then you know what I mean.
I signed up for this one with only 3 weeks to prepare...not a lot of time!

I don't know what I was thinking, but it turned out just fine.
This go around I decided to only sell some Duct Tape Items.
My booth was a hit, thank goodness..but I'm not going to lie, I was a little worried when the first few hours had very little customers, but then it picked up.

Here's what I had for sale:
DT Lanyards
DT Key Wristlet Key Chains
DT Hair Bows
DT Earrings..Yes Earrings!
DT Cupcake Toppers
DT Wallets
DT Art
DT Bracelets

Here are some pics from my tiny little booth :)

My Price Sheet...hard to see what it says....

I mustache you a question?? Don't you just LOVE my mustache wallets?
They were a huge hit!

Cupcake Toppers, Woven Bracelets, and Wristlet Key Chains

Lanyards, Earrings, and my bows!

Sealed with a kiss! More wallets!

My new stands for my wallet display...
I love that little Alien Wallet I made, it's so cute.

Dun Dun Dun..Dun DunnDunn Dun Dunn Dunn...

More wallets...
That Pink Paisley wallet is my fav...the pockets are lined with Gold DT..
I need to make another one

The Booth..

Still the booth...

And...the last pic of the booth

So there you go...

I sold almost all my wallets, and was so pleased to see how excited people got over them.
I had a lot of new ones out that I've never sold before so that was fun to see people's reaction over them.

However the best part of the show was all the kids that came up to my booth to tell me that they too make Duct Tape Stuff. was amazing!  I strongly encourage kids to make stuff, and some even had their own little side business selling wallets and bracelets to kids at school.
I had fun talking with them about it, and encouraged them to keep up the good work.

After all..


On another some what related note..
I have to show you these earrings I made...

Not the best picture but I wanted you to see up close...
These are tiny wooden spools that I covered in the Pink/Gold/Teal Paisley Duct Tape..then I added Teal Glass Pearl Beads to them.
I LOVE these earrings..I wish you could see them in person, because they are so stink'n cute!
They didn't sell, and I'm actually glad, I don't think I asked enough for them, and I love them so much I may just keep them.
Aren't they adorbs??!!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!


  1. I'm glad your show went well. It's encouraging to know there are still kids who craft and don't just play computer and video games. Cute earring idea!


    1. Thank you! It was so encouraging to see that! That's why I spent a little extra time with those kids :) I gave them my blog address and told them that I had some tutorials on here for them to learn more.

  2. Your booth looked great! Is all your art gone? I hope your weekend is better then your week has been. Thanks for sharing your pics. I will see you in our Tophatter auction this weekend, are you excited?

    1. Thank you! No I didn't sell my art, but I knew I wouldn't...Although people stopped and talked to me about it constantly. I am super excited! I can't wait :)


I adore comments from my readers, thank you so much for taking the time to comment and making my day by doing so.
