Do you ever feel that there are just too many choices to make and you just can't make a decision?  I feel that way right now.  I'm doing the Strawberry Swing craft fair this weekend.  While I'm really looking forward to it, I'm also really frazzled trying to make all these last minute decisions.  I want to make a new sign for my booth, need to finish up my wares, am super nervous that the headband material I ordered won't get here in time/won't be what I thought, cannot decide on what to do for my packaging, etc.  Everything is coming together, but it's all these final decisions that are getting me stressed out.  

My favorite time before a craft fair is just dreaming up how I'll display everything and buying new fabric.  Then the reality of everything hits about a week beforehand.  I always wonder why I put myself through it, but then seem to pay the money to sign up for the next one.  I guess it's the thrill of my unrealistic expectations..what could happen.

Here's a glimpse at my super cluttered craft room.  It's a big, colorful mess!

Things might be a bit quiet over here for the next few days as I feverishly finish everything.  If you're in the Kansas City area on Sunday, be sure to stop by and say hi!

p.s.  Did you see my awesome new grab button on the side there?  The beautiful and talented Karla over at My Serendipitous Life created it for me.  She is super nice, and her blog has a ton of really cool beauty DIYs that you should check out.  And guess who sent me the grab code when I was so frustrated that I couldn't get it to work?  The pretty and amazing HTML coding genius Jenny over at Diary of a Dreamer.  She has great posts, so check her out, too.  Thank you both for all your help! You guys are awesome!


  1. haha, thanks for the recognition Kari! Don't worry I'm sure you'll do great at the fair. A messy craft room is always the best. If it's super clean they TOTALLY don't use it!

  2. I've never been to a craft fair but it sounds like fun and I've been considering visiting one soon. I hope everything comes together and it's all you hope it will be, your hair clips are super cute and I'm sure you'll do great! :)

    Thanks so much for the shout out. :D

  3. Can't wait to see how your set up turns out for Sunday! I wish I could go!

  4. You are working hard! It all looks wonderful, and I'm sure you will pull it all together in time. Hope it all goes well, you deserve success. Then afterwards, take a little break!

  5. HTML can be such a headache, I'm just gettign to grips with my own grab button! Good luck at the fair! I'd love to do that sort of thing one day.

  6. You're doing a great job! Your efforts will definitely pay off!

  7. sounds super tough :/ I feel you though, we've all been in those situations..but hang in there :D I'm sure it'll all be fine and the stress will be gone soon <3 xx
