I'm finishing up craft fair stuff, but took some time out to get a haircut and stamp awhile with a friend. It was wonderful to do her projects. One was a beautiful tunnel card with a thanksgiving theme. The other was a cute little mummy treat holder. It's fun to sometimes be the student. Especially when you have a fun friend to hang out with. Thank you, Cindy!
Local readers: Start going through your stash! The stamping and scrapbooking things you don't need could earn you some cash. November 6 is the Stamp and Scrap Rummage Sale in Saxon. You can sell your stuff and great deals on things you want to buy. Mark your calendar! I'll post more details when I have time. (Probably after Saturday.)

The rest of my day was spent doing craft fair preparations. I went through all my card baskets and made sure everything was priced. I reduced the prices on some I wanted to see go. I usually sell a lot of cards. I finished up 9 little gift bags and 2 card holding boxes. They're really cool - I'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow. I decided to price my card/photo holders at $4.00 for all but the largest, which are $5.00.
I'm thinking I might charge $6.00 for the full size journals and $4.00 for the half-size. Folks can choose either personalizing the journal with a word/name or a beaded pen. Does that sound like too much or too little? I'm going to put the packaged journal sets on sale. They contain a comp book, hand-bound softcover journal prompt book and a beaded pen. I'll mark the full size down to $7.50 and the half at $5.50? This part is the most stressful!
Stay tuned for more craft fair craziness tomorrow. :)

I think I'm crazy. Crazier than normal. The craft fair at Pumpkin Fest is next Saturday. I have a lot of stuff, as my scrap pages show, but there's still a lot to be done, including pricing, which is one of the hardest things for me. I have more projects to make. Beyond that, I have five various appointments, shopping and I am doing October's scrapbooking Lay Out a Day (LOAD) event.
I love LOAD because it gets me to scrap daily. But that usually means a few hours for each layout. Ah...it's a lot, but it's all good. All good stuff.
I hope you enjoy the scrap layout. I'll be sharing a lot of them throughout the month.
