2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Pictures of craft fair setup - Please post! on: June 07, 2009 09:17:07 PM
Thought I would share ours! Smiley

We do both pretty rigid, juried art shows, as well as small town summer festivals. This booth display is our main indoor display. We do something similar but not quite as extensive for outdoor or short shows. For an indoor show, it will usually take us 1-2 days setup. We can do it in one, but we usually do 1 full day setup, and then before opening on first day of show we spend a couple hours putting out product,etc. It's a lot of work, but this type of show requires pretty professional booths, and booth fees are in the thousands. But the profits make it worth it for us.

I don't hav ea photo of our outdoor display, but will try and take some this summer.

I don't use any of the boards, chat features,etc. of ravelry. Thats ir reserved for here, I like the interaction.

One of the thngs I really appreciate about ravelry is though that I can find all the different sub yarns people use for a pattern and I also really love the pattern browser... It takes no time at all to find a free pattern for a cardigan with a hood for example.

haha true! Well thankfully the buckets are all hidden under the bed and/or in  a tiny closet.. but we picked up a vintage dresser yesterday at Value Village that we are in the process of refinishing..
We got some ammmmazing drawer pulls/knobs


and are going to sand it down and repaint it. so yoohoo for that! haha

Great idea on the curtains for around the bed as well, that is a great idea.. I am going to go to the local fabric store the next time I am in the city and see what kinds of fabric they have in their clearance section.. They often have raw silk and lots of sheery stuff..

I am picturing sheer/shimmery copper for the bed, and raw silk choc. brown for the windows.. ooh..

It's all coming together! If I EVER get it done, I will be sure to post pics!

I do a couple different things..
- fabric with ribbon or yarn
- plain brown kraft paper. I like this option becase I have an endless free supply from my dads office.. hehe and you can really fancy it up with raffia, ribbon, bows,etc.
-expensive handmade wrapping paper
- clothes.. I have a friend who rips up her old clothes and wraps gifts in them
-take out menu's, especially for kitchen related gifts

Thanks sooo much for all the great ideas guys! I am getting super excited about it now!

It's so funny because our walls downstairs are COVERED in stuff, a giant round mirror above our couch, masks from my time in west Africa, paintings done by friends, photographs, art,...

Just to clarify a bit more, we have sheer white curtains on each corner of the bed, I am thinking of adding some velvety curtains as well(but only as swag up around the bars)

I was also thinking of doing a collage of different frames to put the photos in, some bigger, some smaller. But I really want to give them a focus in the room so might have some curtains framing them, or something to that effect.

and I tottttaly agree that it's all about texture, I really want it to be sensual, as opposed to in your face, mirrors on the cielings type.. haha! Dh has a stressful job so having that space where we can just climb into our fantasy land and cuddle and forget the outside world is what I am looking for!

Oh I just wanted to add  I said we don't have any candles,etc. but I am totally not adverse to buying anything. I just don't know WHAT to buy. and at the end, I meant I don't know what type of frames to use, or what photos to use in them.

ok ladies and gent's, pull out the big guns(ha!) on this one.

We just got married a few weeks ago(YAY!), and moved into a new house a few months ago. We are renting, but have painted it, put things up on the walls,etc. and can pretty much do whtever we want(as in paint/art,etc.)

Anyway, We don't have much money this year, with trying to pay off the little bit of debt we have, plus paying off the last of the wedding bills, so we decided to craft gifts this year.

I would really LOVE to make our bedroom really romantic, sexy place for us. very lush, and yummy.. so give me some ideas!

We don't have a dresser in there at the moment, but clothes are in the teeny closet and/or in buckets under the bed.

The only furniture we have in there is our bed, which is a four poster dark wood very square/mod bed.

and two bedside tables that match, the bedding is also brown. The walls are painted pale steely blue

so what can we do? We have no photos/art on the walls in our bedroom, no candles, no special lighting, nothing, though definitely NOT adverse to buying it.

I had some boudoir photos taken as a wedding gift for dh and I know he would love to display some of them..

but I am not sure what type of frames to use, or what photos to use.

Need some help!!
