My House is Full of Craziness

I read somewhere that crafters should take three times the amount of stuff they want to sell to a craft fair. WOW. That's a lot of stuff. I took that statement to heart because it makes sense. The rationale behind it is that you never want your booth to look empty.

For the past several weeks I have been buying fabric, cutting out fabric, and sewing fabric . I think almost every room in my house might have fabric or finished products in it. When I look at all of it, I feel that I have enough...but...I always feel like I could make more. My husband says I'm too hard on myself, and I say that I can do better. Did I mention that I also homeschool our 4th grade son?


I signed up for the New Salem Mountain Festival (a big craft fair) a long time ago before I decided to homeschool. Had I known I would be homeschooling, I would have passed on the craft fair!

Alas, I have a week and 2 days until the craft fair. I still have about 20 aprons, 10 camera straps, 30 makeup bags and a couple of purses to sew. I think I need to re-evaluate this! There's no way I can get all of that done and maintain any ounce of sanity.

Needless to say, next week will be a slacker week as far as homeschooling goes.
