Craft Show This Week


I am managing a craft show, the annual Elmcroft Memory Walk Craft Show, this week. It will be held on Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is being held at the Elmcroft, the assisted living facility where I work. We are raising money for the Alzheimer's Organization and, hopefully, we will have some good sales! It's been a lot of work. I will try to get some pictures of it on here next week. I have made most of the crafts, but have some friends who are also adding their crafts. I have also worked with my more "crafty" and talented residents to make some wreaths and handmade greeting cards. They came out great! I have no idea how many people will show up. We are placing a nice big sign outside by the road which gets some high volume traffic, so maybe some people will stop out of curiosity.

I have added a picture of another twist to my tatting. This time, I added it to a headband covered with pink satin ribbon. My four-year-old grandson was my assistant and did a great job holding the headband for me to photograph! I think I'll use him again in the future--he works cheap and loves helping me with all my crafts.

What a darling little headband! I'm sure my granddaughters would love those, but I'm not so sure my grandson would be as willing to help as yours is!

Well, he's only 4 so he doesn't know any better yet! I'm sure this won't last long.
