one of a kind update


Ok... my brain is finally less frazzled and recovering from the hectic One of a Kind Show. I just wanted to show you some more shots of how our booth turned out... since I realized, I only posted some teaser pics last week. So the good news is... our booth (the Hob Snobs Craft Collective -- it is a bit hard to see the logo on the wall in this pic) won best booth design!! Awwww... yeah! We were super excited and surprised at being picked out of the 200+ other booths! Woohoo! And we managed to decorate on a tight budget as well.... um... carpet courtesy of craigslist, some furniture from our own houses, and an inexpensive feature wall color and custom wall lettering really did the trick! There we are in our booth looking a bit tired on day 4 (me on the left, Jeannette from The Beautiful Project in the middle, and Sasha from Track and Field Designs on the right). Thanks to everyone who came to visit us.... we were running on caffeine those four days, so hopefully our zombie mannerisms didn't scare you.

Also thanks to Jan for featuring our booth on her blog Poppytalk, Miranda from Hudsonny for featuring us as well, and Lesley from Smidgebox posting about us too! Thanks ladies!

Wow!! I thought it was going to be photos of a newly decorated kids room or something - not a booth at a fair, sooo impressed!

Your booth is adorable. Looks like a room in a house or a playroom. Nothing "boothy" about it! No wonder you won "best booth" Great Job!!

No kidding - that is not a booth, that is a room! Most craft fairs I have been to are just tables with some dividers... that show must have been amazing. Did you actually get to paint your walls and everything?
