The post about why I have been MIA since the big start-up

So first of all I think I might try a little "post  theme" with my title's by starting the all with "The post about...." (Kind of like how f.r.i.e.n.d.s. episodes are called "the one with the...) examples "the post about the craft fair" "the post about Chase's new clothes" "the post about whatever".... do you think thats a dumb idea? Well since I have no followers yet and I am basically talking to myself I will answer my own question and say,.. I will give it a shot and see how soon it becomes annoying....back to business..

Second of all I havent written a post since I started this thing because I have been working my butt off crafting for my first craft fair today. The plan was to start finding out about these things, sign up (but only if the booth rental isnt expensive) and start selling my masterpieces every few weeks.... but I was let down by my big "opening"...

Me and my mom @ our booth

We (my mom and cousins) did not sell near as much as we thought we would, but it was also a rummage sale so maybe that caused a problem since people were there for rummage items and prices SO I will be giving it another shot... and at least I will have more stuff to put in my Etsy store now. Here are some pics of the table and craftiness-ess..

Trend extensions, button headbands, bowls,picture frames, baby bibs, tag krinkle toys, cake plates...

car seat sized baby blankets, fashion scarves, every occasion cards,...

Manequin display of a hippie button headband and a purple leopard extension... more extensions on table

My BIG hit... the colorful plastic bowls (look better in person, I'm going to have to invest in a better camera and photography skills)

The coffe cup cozy

Bibs galore..

Headbands that can be worn "hippie" style or "alice" style, some coffe cup cozys on top and a bowl on the bottom...

fashion scarves..

Top: American Girl Doll Clothes
Bottom: Sweet Tooth cupcake baby onsies...

and last but not least my purchase of knitted slippers for Chase, note the big toe already popping out on one! They were supposed to be for christmas because I wanted to get him some slippers that will stay on and he cant take off so he doesnt have to run around the house in socks all the time... but they wont fit for long so he'll need new ones by then

I also bought a cute crystalized kitten pin which I think I will put on a black satin headband and show on here soon
a HUGE bag full of random fabric, tulle, and 2 thick rolls of pink and purple flannel for the Greyson's Gift blankets. All for SUPER cheap.
now that this first craft fair is over I can get to work on my Greyson's Gift Project!

If any experienced blogger does happen to read this soon, I need HELP!
1. Why do my pictures take so long too load? and
2. Why do they look like such bad quality on here?

Hello World- Marie the born again blogger has arrived

well i'm sitting here at 1:40 am writting this first "post" as my final step in setting up my blog. I had no idea this was going to take me HOURS to get running... but im finally done, without really starting at all as you can tell by this lame excuss for a post. And ( I know you aren't supposed to start sentences with "and" but its my blog and im doing it... also i wont be using much proper grammer as you may already know) ... AND I have 2 more blogs to set up soon :0... but definetly not tonight. Tom is next to me snoring and trying to block the computer screen light out of his eyes muahahah so I'd better log off after this BIG accomplishment. Keep in mind I am a Virgin Blogger and have no idea what I'm doing so hopefully this blogging phenomenon is simple.WISH ME LUCK....

I promise it will be better soon .... I will leave you with the latest picture of Chase & Archer xoxo
