Lots of displays.... countdown for my FIRST craft show begins!

Sooo, busy week! Stressful! But at least there is a snow storm, it is like my purpose to get some displays and things done these past 2 days while we have been snowed in! Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think of my display ideas! I think they are pretty cute, and sassy, which is just what I was going for. I decided upon hot pink and zebra (so cliche) but it's sassy and boutique-like.. so that is what I'll be decorating my Craft Show booths with from now on, until I get bored with it and will be changing it up.

YES! The board above is the one I made in the tutorial from my previous blog!

Flower Pot Headband Display

2 Smaller Hair Bow Boards for the pigtail bows

Homemade Headband Displays

What is your favorite display of mine above? What do you think I could do to them to make them even cuter? I need input, as this is all for my customers and to reel people into checking out my booth while walking by.

The countdown for my FIRST craft show begins..... 10 days and counting! I am so excited! I hope to see many of my customers and NEW customers there! After this, I already have an open house lined up in March and a Craft Show at Guyer H.S. lined up in April. I am going to make 2011 my year, the year for MELANY'S BOUTIQUE! Watch out everyone! lol

Also, I got the CUTEST business card holder for my craft show booths, it's super adorable! Was only $14 from Amanda @ FlowersKissing ( You guys should definitely check her out, I told her my theme and what I wanted and she definitely made it happen! I added the pink jeweled bow on the top, just to give it a more boutique look. But it's PRECIOUS! Check out below!

More stuff to upload soon, as well as a tutorial! I am excited for this craft show, and in a time crunch with only 10 days left. So I may not be posting as much as I'd like before then, but check back often for tutorials and new creations by Melany!

Snow Day!

Okay, now after reading that title "Snow Day" I'm sure no one believes me, seeing as I do live in Texas, but honestly, we're snowed in! So I finally found a little bit of time to do a lot of things I haven't been able to do the past few weeks (full time job and those 13 hours of college are really keeping me busy). Thank GOD for snow days! Definitely nice to be able to relax for one day and do a lot of things you normally wouldn't have time for!

I am going to posting a few more pictures tonight of displays I have made for my upcoming craft show, as well as POSSIBLY posting a tutorial, depends if I can find where I left my glue gun? haha I am really interested in showing you guys some new ideas I have gotten to make for the craft show booth as well as new things I made to sale in my online boutique. I am just not so sure if I'd like to give away ALL of my secrets just yet, we will see tonight!

I hope everyone stays warm and gets a little creative today! Do some crafts with your kids or find something old you'd like to "make new" again! It's always fun to see what you can do with something you never thought you could use!
