My First Crafty Event!

My first crafty selling event!

I joined an Etsy group, Idaho Indie Works, and they have a venue for Downtown Boise's First Thursday market and wine tasting! And after being a member for only a week or two, the let me join in on the festivites!

Look at all the goodies I had to sell!

It was so much fun! I got visited by a bunch of my friends and family and it was really nice to have so much support for something I've only been doing for about a year!

The prep was out of control though!
I took the day off of work!

I even got the hubby in on the action!

He also did the pin striping on my necklace board!

Here is the necklace board with necklaces on it :)

I got an old fram at the Thrift Store, painted it black, of course, then where the matting and glass usually goes I took a piece of foam board, covered it in some awesome fabric, and VOILA! Add some push pins and the hubby's sweet art skills...

He even cleverly rigged it to stand up by itself!

And look at the awesome new make up brush roll I made!

I was so proud of this until I melted it trying to get my label on :(

Long Story.

But it was such an adventure! Now I have all of the materials I need for more selling events! I am scheduled to do September and October's First Thursday events, the Bike race thing October 2nd-4th in Sun Valley in cooperation with Krazy Dog Catering, plus several Holiday Bazaars around the valley!

I hope to see you all out and about and come say hi!
