Tour Through Blogland

Tour Through Blogland

So last week Kelly for Simply Kelly Designs gave us a tour through her blog and invited me to do the same. Kelly and I met while both participating in the Silhouette Challenge. Soon after we became, what I like to call, inbox besties. We are kindred spirits both on a blog level and a personal level. If we go a day without messaging it is rare. We had the amazing opportunity to meet in person at the Haven Conference in Atlanta.

So I've been keeping a secret from you! I'm usually not very good at keeping secrets but this time I was! As of about an hour ago I've opened up at booth at Signature Finishes in North Grafton, MA.

Brimfield Antique Show

Brimfield Antique Show

I am back and mostly recovered! Over the past week my brother and I have been vendors for the first time at the Brimfield Antique Show. The show is the largest and oldest outdoor antique show in the country. It is about 2 miles long on route 20 and about 1/4 mile back on each side of the road. Imagine that then imagine it bigger! We have been going to Brimfield shopping for many years and last September decided we could do this! So we went for it! And I am so ecstatic that we did.

Dismantling a Pallet

Dismantling a Pallet

With the excitement of the week being my Silhouette Cameo being delivered I started to do some prep work for future projects. I have always loved and admired signs I saw on crafters blogs or pinterest, especially salvaged looking signs. Now that I own a machine that can cut vinyl and create stencils I am excited to figure out to make these signs myself. 

I was out back by the loading docks, for a company I frequently freelance for, and noticed a small pallet that had been sitting there for about a week ready to be put in the dumpster.
