These are pictures from my vendor booth at the Southern Cruisers National Rally held September 4-7, 2014 at the Clarion Hotel in Lexington, KY.  I met people from all over the US.  There were several other vendors there, but no one with crafts like mine. 
 I had a great time and will do it again next year.
I had Halloween items as well as Christmas items - and - of course my greeting cards.  My best seller was my homemade lip balm.  I sold out.  Guess I will need to make more for my next craft fair in October.  If you see something you like, I do take orders -

Craft Fair Items

I have been busy making cards and other paper crafts for an upcoming craft fair.  It is the annual SCRC National Bike Rally to be held at the Clarion Hotel in Lexington on Sept 4-7, 2014.  The event is to help St. Jude Children's Hospital.  The hotel is located at 1950 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY.  There will be bikers and non bikers from all over the US.  Also I have inexpensive trick or treat ideas for Halloween and Christmas stocking stuffers as well as teacher gifts.

There will be many, many venders there, too.  Some will be outside and some inside.  My booth will be set up on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 5-6 from 9am - 9pm and will be located inside the hotel.  I'm glad of that in case there is bad weather.  Since most of my crafts are made with paper, I don't have to worry about anything getting wet.

I hope you will come out even if you don't participate in the bike riding.  It still should be fun for the whole family. 

Below are samples of my items.  Keep in mind, I do take custom orders.  Just email me at

More Handmade Cards

Here are some easy cards to make.  I used card stock (an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet will make 2 cards with each card measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4), paper flowers from Michaels, and stamped a message on the front.  Also I always put my personal stamp on the back.  Sometimes I leave the inside blank and other times I stamp a message.  I even print a message on my PC at times.  I sell these and other cards for $2 each or 6 for $10. Shipping is based on quantity.

More Altoid Tins

Don't throw those empty Altoid tins away.  They are great to use for little gifts.  You can put candy in them or make a mini sewing kit for your purse or car.  These are just a few uses.  I put a saying on the inside and later I will fill with candy.

It's almost Father's Day.

The Wedding Dress

The Wedding Dress
This is a card made from 4 inch dollies.  Easy to do, just fold the dolly, cut off the top, and glue on.  I used another dolly for the top of the dress cutting it free hand.  I printed the wording on by PC and then punched it out with my round punch, then punched out a scalloped circle for the backing.

A Little Birdie Told Me

A Little Bird Told Me.... it's your birthday.
This is a simply little card to wish happy birthday to someone special. 
On the outside it says, "a little birdie told me" 
and on the inside it says, "it's your birthday. 
This could be used for a child or an adult - men or women.

It's almost Easter.  Here are a few of my Easter Cards.
