My Very First Craft Show Results!

Hello everyone,  I just wanted to take the time to let you know how my craft show turned out.  I know you have been wondering how did it go; Well, Overall, I gotta say it was AWESOME!  I had a lot of fun and I met some really nice people.  I didn't sell out like I wanted to but the experience and the comments about my booth made it worth my while.  Here is a picture of my table below:

Just wanted to share a few tips on how to prepare for your very first craft show:  

1) Make sure you have enough inventory for your show.  One thing you would not want to do is run out of merchandise.  This is one way to miss out on sales.  

2) Please , Please bring someone else with you.  This will ensure that you don't miss out on any sales while you're at the restrooms. Also, this gives you an opportunity to check out some of the other creative booths at the show.

3) Enjoy and Have fun!.  I can't stress this enough! Enjoy yourself, get to know your neighbors.  I talked and laughed with my neighbors the entire day and I also found out where some more craft shows are held in my area.  I enjoyed talking to the people that stopped by my booth.  Well, if you want to know about more fun tips on how to prepare for your very first craft show, stay tuned for my E-book on more helpful tips.  I would love to hear from you about your experiences at your craft shows, so leave me a comment.

Things that Bring Joy to my Life

Being in a positive and joyful frame of mind is completely up to you.  You should never allow something or someone to steal your joy!  I always say when you smile the world will smile right back at you; but on the other hand, if you frown then the world will frown back at you. I want to share with you a few things that bring me joy on a regular basis!

1) My relationship with God. Every morning that I wake up and get started with my shower; that is me and God's time to share talk and just give thanks to him for allowing me to see another day!  I enjoy those few minutes alone with him, because with two growing toddlers, its hard for me to be all about him and play with them and meet their every little need at the same time.

2) My relationship with my family. I enjoy waking up to my soul mate every day and just spending time when him.  I enjoy spending time with our beautiful kids. It brings so much joy to my heart that I can share my space with God's greatest gift to me. I love reading to them and of course hearing them read mommy a story. Its hillarious watching my children read me a book. They have such big imaginations.  I also enjoy and love eating meals togethe and watching movies. I could go on and on about the joy of family!!!!!!!!!!

3) It definitely brings so much JOY to my heart doing what I love. I love making diaper cakes, towel cakes, and gift baskets. It brings much joy to me when my customers are so excited and thrilled about my gifts.  I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night just to decorate a diaper cake. I have to do it while the design is fresh in my mind.

4) Lastly, I enjoy waking up in my right mind and with my health and strength. I might not exercise like I should but I really love being able to do things for myself and not have some sort of disability.

I really hope this inspires you to be thankful and joyous doing this holiday season. Please do not complain about things that you wish you had or don't have. Be thankful and joyful about the things that you do have. Life is too short to live in the don't haves, should haves. Take the time out to do something nice for someone else. Please share this link with everyone you know

Top baby shower themes for little boys!

Getting ready or planning for a baby shower can be a lot of work. But, also it can be very exciting as well.  Once you find out what the sex of the baby is, this should make your planning go a lot smoother.  One of the most important things to keep in mind is to choose a baby shower theme.  Choosing a baby shower theme is very fun. So, you want to create a baby shower theme for little boys.  Here are the top couple of themes for a little boy.

1) Safari themes for little boys.  This theme seems to very popular within the baby nursery themes this year.  Now with Safari themed baby showers. There are so many cool things that you can do with it.  Now it includes lions, zebras, monkeys and just about any animal that you would find in jungle or zoo. One thing that you can add to your to do list about great centerpieces for your baby shower is a Safari Diaper Cake.

Secondly, you can go with a puppy dog theme. With this theme, you can have several dogs with the color blue surrounding it.  You can always use the color blue because blue is the color that separates the girls from the boys.  For your centerpiece at the baby shower, you can design a Navy Blue and Puppy Dog Diaper Cake.  Puppy dogs just really speaks masculine to people when you see little boys.

Lastly, for every little boy, most baby showers always, always have a sports theme. When you think of a little boy, you think of playing basketball, football, and even hockey.  You can use any kind of borders for your nursery theme using footballs, baseballs, basketballs, and even use NFL themed diaper cakes.
If you want to get your diaper cakes designed with your favorite NFL theme, that always makes a great gift for the new mom featuring her favorite Football, Basketball, or Hockey team. With this theme, you can get baby onsies in your favorite team, baby bottles, and pacifiers.  Most of your local Wal-marts carry these items. But, now it depends on where you live and what your hometown team is.

I really hope this has helped you and made you have a clearer picture of planning a baby shower for little boys. Now, this is not limited to just these themes, but you can use cars, planes, trucks, and boats as well. I mean when you think of little boys, most of them love to explore the nature and play outside with one of the above items.  Enjoy and have fun planning your baby shower for little boys.
