My First Craft Boutique

Momma B (my Mother-in-Love) and I teamed up for an arts and crafts boutique last weekend, and we had a blast!

I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited all the same.  It was a great opportunity to learn tricks of the trade (such as always bring tape!) and be better prepared for next time. 

It was fun to see the fruits of our labor out on a table ready to be purchased--so exciting!


Crocheted lovelies...lots of scarves, but some cute hats and little baby sweaters, too.

Lots of flower headbands, clips, and pins.  Nearly all of them sold!

Pretty little glass bead jewelry sets

My handmade soaps

Momma B had her beautiful quilts for sale.  All hand quilted.  Just beautiful.

Look at the beautiful detail she adds in her quilting!  I need to spend more time under her tutelage :-)

My handsome man was so wonderful.  He helped with the sales, greeted people as they walked by, and took care of us throughout the day.  What a blessing it was to marry a guy who was already "trained" by another crafter!  He is such a wonderful sport.  ♥

Jesse's godparents, Jan and Robert, came to the sale to support us.  It was so much fun to see them there, and to have them involved in what we were doing!  They brought us lunch and we all had a wonderful time.


It was such a good day!  It was a lot of fun to be able to share my work with others, and to get to walk around and see things that other people had made.  But mostly, it was a wonderful day to share a love for crafting with Momma B, and begin something that I hope will become a wonderful family tradition.
