one-day hiatus and a giveaway

Wow, I have never wanted a break from crafting in all my life. I did not craft a single thing today--can you believe it? I'll be back to my old ways tomorrow, but it was nice to just read a book, drink hot cocoa, and enjoy my family after weeks of getting ready for our craft fairs. I hope Stacy did the same today! We really did have a great time, though, and we were able to clear out a few things from our craft closets and make a little extra dough for Christmas. We'll be stocking our Etsy stores this week with the leftovers, so watch for an announcement soon! There were some really cute things that didn't find a home, and our husbands do not want them in ours any longer!


Stacy and Mandy with the "goods"



Look at all this fun stuff!

Thanks to our sweet readers who stopped by the Kokanee fair yesterday. We appreciate your support so much! We also made some new friends in the vendors near our table.

Like these guys. We were so impressed with these high school students, Mike and Jake, who sell screen-printed t-shirts with earth-friendly themes. They had some cool stuff! They're still working on their Web site, but check out beleafculture.com in the near future.



We also made fast friends with Heather of Cutie Patootie Boutique.

Heather was selling darling baby and kids items--we were going crazy over all her stuff! She has incredible taste in fabric, too. Check out this adorable pillow case dress.


And this hilarious "stinks good" play dough. "Dough Doh Heads" scented play dough comes in fun flavors like Rootbeer Float, Banana Split, Freckled Lemonade, and more. (Children with Wheat Allergies should NOT use this product as it contains wheat flour.) We loved the funny "dough doh head" on her packaging. So original!


Play with your dough on this cool reversible play mat that's a smooth surface for dough on one side and a chalkboard on the other.


After spending all day with her, we felt like we were best friends. Maybe that's why she offered to give us a few items for a giveaway! Two giveaway posts in a row? Christmas must be coming. . .

Check out Heather's Web site and leave us a comment with your favorite item in her store for a chance to win these fabulous stocking stuffers (great items for girls or boys!):


*1 Groovy Grape Dough Doh Heads Scented Playdough
*1 Orange Sorbet Dough Dob Heads Scented Playdough
*1 black and white gingham reversible "Chalk and Dough on the Go" play mat

That's a $24 value! Thanks Heather! Go visit Cutie Patootie Boutique and let us know what tickles your fancy. But be sure to leave us a comment by Sunday, November 30th. Good luck!

I love the aqua tutu with the fall leaves at the hem. So pretty! My daughter loves the pillowcase dresses and laments they don't come in her size (8/10). Son loves the dough and would love to craft some cool lego star wars characters out of it!

I will definitely be shopping with Heather for my infant/toddler nieces and nephews.
