Why the name missbossypants, you ask? Well, it goes back to my roots.... my maiden name is Bos - a good old dutch name. I've been accused of being a little bit bossy in nature, and I'm not about to dispute the fact! I sometimes tell people my crafty "alter ego" is a tribute to my daughter, who is a lot like her mother in the bossy characteristic! Thanks for visiting missbossypants!

Craft show display

This post is a bit of a show off for me, but also for my use so I don't forget how to set up at my next show!!! :)

I was a vendor at the first annual Bellies, Babies and Beyond Baby Expo in Strathroy this week, and had the chance to debut my new display.

What's that you say, the sign closely resembles a crown and anchor wheel that can be found at most social gaming nights? yeah, I know. It's not done yet, but I got it that far, and decided to use it in this state.

-Flaxseed ouchie bags on trays and in the basket in front of the table.
-Bibs hanging from tiered rack.
-Aprons hanging from side of tiered rack (I have to find a better way to show them!)
-Felt food on trays and homemade pedestal plates (aren't they fun!?!)
-Aplique shirts on the clothing rack to the left.

I bought this metal stand at the second hand store a few months ago, with great intentions of showing my flaxseed ouchie bags on 3 levels. But, the ouchie bags get a bit heavy when there's a few of them, and I didn't want the whole thing to come crashing down. Instead, it worked as a great bib showcase. The middle tier went unused, albeit decorative. (The basket only held info. sheets, but hey, they gotta go somewhere too!) Notice the credit card sign hanging from the top tier. I didn't get a chance to accept any credit cards, but I know someday someone will whip theirs out, and I'll be laughing all the way to the bank!

Here's my felt food sets. I love the bag tags I created! I decided to staple them to the closed end of the bag, and leave the zipper end accessible so people could take the product out, touch, feel and examine, if they wish.

People just love feeling the felt food, and commenting on it. There were squeals of delight, and comments on how real it looks! I am most proud because I received a lot of attention from a couple of boutiques that would like to carry my felt food, as well as a couple daycares that are interested in purchasing!

I got my card out to a lot of people that night, made some money (above my table rental-yay!), and most importantly, HAD FUN!

I'm looking forward to the next show!
