Trash to Treasure Fair


Spent my Saturday at the Trash to Treasure craft fair that I do each year — except this year I had a booth buddy! My friend Matt makes all sorts of amazing stuff out of wine barrel staves and old pallets, so we joined together to sell our good.

It was a lot of fun and I have blog posts coming your way about how to make some of the stuff you see on that table — a lot of which would be great Christmas gifts!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Happy Monday!


My booth!

My booth is all set up for the fair today. I always feel like my booth looks crappy compared to the other vendors who do fairs as their real job. I’m surrounded by a ton of fair pros. But I’ve got lots of cool stuff and a QR code on my sign to take people right to my blog! Yay for DIY branding. Wish me luck today 🙂




So many pallets…

… so little time.

Yes, that’s right. I have a total of five pallets to destroy! Woo! I have grand plans for one or two of them… AND since my pallet sign turned out so well, the hubby doesn’t seem to care too much that I brought three of them home this week and grabbed one more from our neighbor. I’m leaving the one in my office alone for a bit longer — I definitely don’t need five pallets at home (not that I need four either).

I have no idea when I’ll actually have time to work on these projects since it is getting to be holiday season, which means I am super busy. This weekend I am doing the Trash to Treasure Fair on Saturday and am (hopefully) making homemade applesauce all day on Sunday. If not, maybe I’ll get around to it sometime this week after work. Unfortunately, with the weather being chilly and it getting dark so early, it’s less exciting to be outside after work using my power tools. We’ll see though!

Next weekend is another craft fair and the hubby’s birthday. Then the weekend after that it is Thanksgiving! Like I said, we are always busy during holiday season. I doubt December will be any slower for us. We are just so darn popular ;p

TGIF! Have a great weekend!
