Not Counting Crafty Cards – Count Down to Craft Fair

Not Counting Crafty Cards – Count Down to Craft Fair

1. Photos printed? Check.

2. Photo greeting cards all made? Check.


3. How many photo greeting cards made? Dunno…haven’t counted them yet. But there’s enough for the first craft fair (I think).

4. Old Christmas cards repurposed into funky new x-mas cards? Check (and a a big thanks to all you WWOW readers who sent me your old cards!).


5. How many x-mas cards made? Uh…not sure. A big box full. That’ll do, Pooh, that’ll do.

6. Wise Owl Wisdom Inspirational Quote Cards (30 cards per set ’cause a quote a day keeps inspiration in play) produced and packaged? Check and check. They look FANTASTIC!


7. Display table organized? Oui. Did that in the summer 🙂

8. Registered with both craft fairs? Check.

9. Packaging materials ordered? Yup (and they have all arrived, too!).

10. Credit & Debit card payment app set up for iPhone? Why, yes. And the card reader actually works.

11. All signs (price lists, etc) printed for table? Not yet. But it’s on the list.

12. Cluster migraines gone? Yes (and a big thanks to all you WWOW readers for your kind comments and helpful suggestions).

13. All boxes of cards and other supplies packed and ready to go? Er, not yet.

14. Peeps coordinated to help me out with the table at the two fairs? Yes.

And so it goes…the countdown for my very first Christmas craft show is ON!

I would say that, after chipping slowly away at the card-making and other preparations for the past 3 months, I am about 90% ready for the first fair: the First Chance Christmas Craft Show in Sidney, BC on Sat Nov 5th and Sun Nov 6th. If you happen to live in the Victoria, Sidney or Saanich Peninsula area, try to drop by and say hi! Please click here for details.

And if you don’t live in the area – but are interested in perhaps purchasing some of these new Pink Gazelle products, don’t worry: they will soon be available in the PGP on-line store. Woohoo! I’ll keep you posted 🙂

Have a great week!

  1. Hi Maryanne — wow, everything looks great — will see at one of the craft fairs for sure — not quite sure whether it’ll be the first chance or last chance (might be away this weekend) — wishing you lots of fun (and sales!) this weekend. Love to you and Sadie, Glynis

  2. Thanks, Glynis! I think I am ready to roll for the craft show in Sidney this weekend…just doing the last minute things and then away we go!

    Take care and see you soon,
