A few weeks ago, I participated in a Pinterest-inspired benefit craft show in Lubbock, TX (2 hours from Amarillo). It was my first "big" craft show, and my 2nd craft show ever. I had a blast! I will definitely be participating in more in the future... You know, when I'm not 9 months pregnant. There were stations set up where you could make different things inspired by pins, and lots of talented local crafters.
I spent lots of time stocking up on product, which wasn't easy in between my day job, being pregnant, and having a head cold that I couldn't shake for a good two weeks. I was happy with what I was able to accomplish, though. And for my second show ever, I think it turned out pretty well. With the help of my husband and friend Rita, my booth turned out to be pretty stinkin' cute if I dare say. ;) Thanks, Rita!
I have to brag on Tyson for a minute here. I showed him some ideas for different displays and asked if he would help me make them. I did not intend for him to do them himself. He was so enthusiastic about it, though, and didn't waste any time getting started. He made them from start to finish and they turned out much better than anything I would have been able to do. I'm so thankful for that man.
The little blue table was inspired by this tutorial. Tyson didn't follow the tutorial exactly, but for the most part it was the same. And I told him I wanted some kind of pegboard display and he free-styled this one. It was even his idea to add the molding, which I think makes it look even more amazing! Good thinking, husband!
Here's an action-shot of the pegboard display!
It was such a great experience and I'm looking forward to using my awesome displays again in another craft show very soon!
