Countdown to Vermont Hand Crafters…

As I mentioned in my post earlier today, I’ve been working like a mad woman, trying to get ready for my first craft show of the season (this weekend) – Vermont Hand Crafters.

I just tallied up my recent work and here’s what it looks like:

  • 23 photo albums of various sizes
  • 18 journals
  • 37 accordion books
  • 1 custom order album
  • 1 guest book
  • 1 Bridal Suite box (still in progress)

And all of that while working at a full-time job. And taking 2 business trips. And being sick. And not eating nearly enough cheese.

I was somehow able to make just about everything on my wish list for production. I only have to finish my Bridal Suite box and I’m all done. As I look at these images, I’m able to stop and appreciate what I was able to accomplish.

And now I’m done stopping. I wonder if I can make some new cards before I start packing the van tomorrow…

Good luck at the show. Sounds as if it has been exhausting but worth it.

Thanks for your kind words Jackie. Very exhausting and VERY worth it. I love talking to folks at craft shows. I also like to recruit folks for the Vermont Book Arts Guild – there’s a lot of book-happy folks here in VT!

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
