In May, my weekends are booked with a ton of activities. I booked 3 craft shows and I have to go to our annual Mother Daughter Tea Party in addition to finding the time to finish up my last 5 IEP's. It's going to be tight, but I'm sure I can manage.
Here's the line up:
May 1: Escondido Humane Society
May 8: Mother Daughter Tea Party and Ladies Shopping spree in the Downtown Escondido area
May 15: Holmes Elementary School in San Diego
Hopefully the Humane Society doesn't get rained out again. It seems like I've been planning for months to go and it hasn't happened yet. The shopping spree in Escondido was just a fluke. I had applied for the Farmer's Market a few months ago, but had to cancel because my mom got sick. One of the ladies that reviewed my application invited me to this event today and gave me a discount on the booth rental. This is awesome and I don't think this hardly ever happens. I had lost the paperwork for the elementary school and my friend just e-mailed it to me again. I think I can actually make it if i keep getting shows like this.
Last weekend I went up to my friends house in LA. She took me to a community garage sale in an upper end neighborhood. It was so cool. One of the houses we went to was liquidating their inventory from their craft store. I found a lot of great deals. I pretty much spent all the money I earned from the bookmarks that I made for the women's study. I got some glass bottles, terra cotta pots, charms, and could have spent a fortune there if I had more cash with me. The good thing is now I have some new Mother's Day gifts that I can sell at all of these craft shows. I also took the lady's card, so I have a good contact for craft supplies. I put some bubble bath in some of the glass jars and decorated it with flowers. I ran out of bubble bath, so I filled the rest of the bottles with bath salts. I had left over bath salts, so I put them in some round toulle and made it into a little favor and added the thank you charms I picked up. I think they turned out pretty cute.
I need to make a ton of Mother's Day cards and wedding cards and graduation cards. So I better let you go. Here are the pictures. Enjoy and I hope you have a super week.
