IROK the Holidays Event

I just wrapped up my final craft fair of the year and it feels weird not to have anything stamping-related scheduled until next year.  I'll be taking a much-needed break at the end of this month, but I've still got a few more projects to share with you before the holidays.

Yesterday's craft fair was a benefit for the IROK foundation.  You can read more about the foundation on their Facebook page.  It's always fun to do craft fairs, but it's even better when you are doing it for a good cause. 

Each vendor was to donate an item to be used in the auction.  My item was a holiday glass block, featuring the small Jingle All the Way decor element (item #114707).  I filled the block with mini jingle bells and tied Real Red striped grosgrain ribbon (retired) around the block.  These are easy to make and would also be perfect as a hostess gift at the holidays.

I was lucky enough to have a great location at the entrance to the event.  The lighting was good, so I took a couple of photos with my phone.

The best-selling item of the day was the tile coasters.  I've had quite a few questions about these coasters and I plan to create a separate post specifically about them.  Look for it Monday evening or Tuesday morning.

Have you ever thought about joining Stampin' Up? Then you might want to hear about the current promotion. It's an exciting time to join!  Email me and I will fill you in on all the juicy details.  This offer is only good on Tuesday and Wednesday this week…..and it's a goodie!

Happy Stampin'

    Melissa,
    Thank you so much for sharing so much information about craft fairs. I have learned so much. This was my 3 rd year to sell at a local craft fair and my best so far, thanks in part to you! Vickie
