Travis made my pendant board...
Screened frame for pins and extra earrings. Burlap bracelet rolls.
The front. I love how my glass cases turned out! They were these silly candle holder things I bought a couple years ago-I think I may have actually blogged about them when i found them. Glass was restored, metal painted, foam was cut in wedges and slipcovered in burlap and necklaces easily pinned into place-I had many compliments from other jewelers on them. The framed photos of past custom work actually was a bigger hit than I expected and had quite a few custom orders from people already thinking ahead for Christmas. Christmas already? Eeep. that reminds me I was thinking about home parties for the holidays. Now all of a sudden I feel overwhelmed-lol.
I'm signed up to do the same show next weekend as well. It was nice to have a smaller venue to be able to concentrate on the set up and tear down timing as well as tweaking presentation. Next week I plan to play with the set up again as well as more outdoor/close-up's of my jewelry to get any extras added into my Etsy shop. :)

These are the blogs for inspiration I found this project through here and here.

Dirt under my fingernails (and mosquito bites!)
All 3 kids wearing birthday hats as unicorn horns and making up unicorn sounds
One summer birthday done-2 to go...I'm not feeling very creative this year and would love to do what we did last year-by combining Gabe and Chloe's in the backyard with neighbor friends. I wonder if she'd let that happen again?
The kids have been playing outside all morning finding roly polys and centipedes to put in the little bug catcher box with neighbors. My legs stink like bug spray and itch. lol. They'll love me in class tonite ;)

Anyhow, these are from our day at Busch Gardens. I'll spare you the other 400+ of them and just throw a few on here...
Here are the greeters as we walked in. They had all sorts of stilt characters walking around the place. Gabe was terrified of them.
Our first stop was the wooden roller coaster. I was shocked when Chloe agreed to go on it with me-since she'd never been on one before. I have a feeling she is officially done with roller coasters and is permanently traumatized. Here is our photo immediately afterwards commemorating the event-still a bit scrambled.
Nice rules. Once again-me with the signs. Glad they don't want people with diarreah in there-lol.
The bird habitat was so cool! they'd come and land on you and pose for pictures.
Why, hello there!
Gabe was in love with the tiger area.
It's easy to see why-look at this gorgeous creature! Just look at how close I was able to get-with just that piece of glass between us...
Here's another stilt guy-a grasshopper? Gabe was trying to climb up Travis while screaming if I remember correctly while he took our picture.
He was also really into the animal shaped topiaties all around. There were pretty cool. He informed me that we need some in our yard...ummm...ya-I'll get right on that.
This one too. How gorgeous is he? I was about 6 inches from his head. Cool, eh?
