Exciting New Things!

Wow, this week has been a whirlwind! Mackenzie turned 3, I had another show (epic fail! but I'll get to that) officially joined forces with Crazy Birds and we are now having our 1st open house!!!

So I fully believe that things happen for a reason and that God has a bigger picture! He has fully proved that this weekend.

 I was asked by my friend Shannon to join her and her cousin Jennifer at a vendor/craft fair (a week and 1/2 before the event! AHHHHH) I knew it was a short turn around but I also knew I would have a blast no matter what.  Mackenzie's birthday was the week before and she got sick as well, AND I didn't get much sleep at all before the event but we did have great product and had a great time with each other.  Too bad NOONE came to this show! I made 2 trades with other vendors there and one online sale from pics on Facebook, but no other sales! Like I said EPIC FAIL!

However, God knew what he was doing! I made a great new friend, became closer to a friend I already had and found that our stuff looked AWESOME together! So we decided to officially join forces! MLB Designs and Crazy Birds are going to start working together.  We have all of this great product from the show Saturday, so we are having an open house in Arlington to show all of our friends TODAY (February 20th, 2012) Next other (more established) shows.  We are creating an Etsy page and using their talent in sewing and my love of crafting as a ministry.  We will keep you posted on all of our adventures!

This is going to be a Great Craftastic Adventure!

Crazy, Busy, Life

Wow, the last few weeks have been crazy! Mackenzie is on the mend, but has had not only upper respiratory issues, but also an ear infection and the "I'm turning 3 on Saturday and have no concept of time so am cranky when I learn it's not my birthday yet" syndrome! Then let's also add 22 kindergarteners during a weather change and full moon (all of you teachers know what I am talking about!) But through it all I have had a great time reading all about CHA and seeing the great new products coming out. You really need to check it out, especially at The Little Blue House. They are AWESOME! I get inspired every time I look at their page and even more so in person.  I hate that they are as far away from me as they are.  I'm sure DJ and our bank account are glad about that though! 

But now on to the BIG news.........drumroll please.......I'm doing another show!!! On Saturday, February 18th, I will be joining forces with Crazy Birds for a show at the Best Western in Forney, TX.  This is my 1st non-home show and I am excited and nervous at the same time! Because Mackenzie's birthday party is Saturday, I haven't had nearly the time to make product as I would like.  So for the next week I will be getting very little sleep and creating away! (Have a feeling I will continually be covered in stain, paint, mod-podge, and glitter!) Diet Coke and I will have a close relationship I fear.  (I love you caffeine!) 

I will try to post pictures and tutorials as I get ready, but who knows how it will go! 

I hope you have a Craftastic weekend, and let the creative juices flow!
