Two Day Craft Fair and I'm Packing to Move to my new home!

I spent my weekend working at the Alfred Elementary School Holiday Craft Fair.  Saturday had alot of customers and I had sooo many people state how much they loved my pinecone ornies, but not one of them sold.  I was selling them for $12.00 which I thought was a reasonable price, but evidently potential customers thought it was too much money. Here's what they look like:

 I also sold one birdhouse ornament.  Credit for these cute little ornies goes to Marion Smith of A Piece of Craft Dot Com.  You can purchase the template off her blog. 

I also made some Explosion Box ornies:

My daughter also made up some packets of Snowman Soup, chocolate-dipped pretzels and bags of mixed candy for stocking stuffers.   She did quite well selling these:

The biggest seller were my notebook pads.   These were a real hit with the teens and pre-teen girls.  The previous weekend during a show, I had a lady buy 5 of them as gifts for her 'club'.

Sorry the above picture is sideways, but blogger won't put it in the right direction. 
 Now I'm busy packing for our move this coming weekend.  We're closing on Wednesday, November 23rd and I'm excited.   I've been packing all my scrapping stuff today and let me tell you----I'm not even 1/4 of the way done!  Here's a look at my room:

This is where I sit and create (most of the time)
Below is what the area looks like right now:

This picture was back in July.
Here it is today:

I am just so overwhelmed (and interrupted quite a bit) that I get frustrated.  I keep moving things from one spot to another, making it look worse.  Oh well, it'll get done.  It's been 4 years since I've had to move, but I'm looking forward to it. 

Have a great day, my friends!

The little note pads are adorable. No wonder they were so popular. Enjoy your new home! =)
