Sneak Peek at My First Show!

August 27, 2013

I am zipping this post off in haste, as I'm madly preparing for the Festival of the Vine in Geneva, IL on Saturday and Sunday, September 7th and 8th, 2013.  Just a picture or two to let you know that I'm alive and kicking.

Don't you just love her?  
I haven't figured out exactly how she'll be posing, but I know she'll be my favorite display piece of the show!

Mr. CBD set up my pretty white tent in our garage so I can practice and stage things just the way I want for the show. 
I'm in the midst of trying things out right now.


These are just a sampling of the pillows I'll be selling.

It's exciting, yet exhausting.  And two of my kids start school this week, so there's been a flurry of activity in that department.  Chickadee number three starts school next week and I'm homeschooling him!  Give me strength. 

As you can imagine, I'll be in overdrive with the show prep.  If you're anywhere near, please stop by the show and say hello, I'd love to meet you!

Historic Downtown Geneva, Illinois
Saturday September 7th  10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Sunday September 8th 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
I hope to share another sneak peek of what I'm up to sometime soon.  Until then, enjoy what's left of the summer and try to stay cool!

Everything is coming together and looks fabulous! I think your dress form will be the star of the show. Love the pillow!!

You're doing very well. I love the dress form. I'm a wing it kinda gal when it comes to set-up at shows, so, I'm impressed with your practicing. lol You have some nice merchandise. As long as you have varying levels, and people can see what you have, you're okay. Take a breath here and there, don't stress, and have fun.

Oh yes, I love the dress form, and the crinoline. I have decided to do a show in 2 months and I am already in overdrive. They are so much fun, but so much work!

Hi Kathy, I hope we'll be able to come and see your debut.
Everything looks great, and practice is a very good thing. The set up time goes so quickly, so having a plan is the only way to go. You'll be rearranging till the customers start coming! Good luck my friend! Love, Penny
