100 posts!!!!! HAPPY giveaway DAY!

Yep, this is it! The big 100th post... and we all know what that means! GIVEAWAY!! 
I will be sending a set of personalized magnets to the winner, as well as a vintage sheet pennant banner in spring colors! And maybe some other fun stuff... you never know what might fall in the box.
To get your entry in, just tell me what kind of magnets you would choose if you won. Like, flowers or butterflies, quilts or roosters, mandalas or cherries, photographs, whatever you think would be cool.
(ETA- I WILL ship internationally! This is for anyone.)
These were a good seller for me, as well as the crayons. I packaged them individually and in sets and the individual ones sold much better. And the crayon totes went like hotcakes- I had them at $10.
Here are some pics of my booth:

Next time we will know a little better what we have for space and stuff. I think we did well with this for a first try. The pennants really drew the eye. I took in $250, which of course is not all profit, but I thought it was respectable for a first try. IT WAS A BLAST! I had a grin on my face all day. I had a wonderful helper. Jenn lives a few minutes from me and I found her blog and we have now become pretty good friends. (The Internet ROCKS.) So she decided to put a few things in (prints of cute/funny sayings) and kind of see what the fuss was about. I would NOT want to run a booth alone, I can tell you that! So, thanks, Jenn!

I will leave this post up til Sunday. Today is Wed, so you have a little time to get your entries in. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you are set to no-reply. You can send people over and if they put in their comment that you sent them and they win, I will give you a set of personalized magnets just for sending them here!


  1. OK I'll be the first :) I would most definately pick some kiddo sayings like *look what I did!* or pictures of kids art supplies - crayons, glue, scissors, markers - you got the picture? or maybe some positive remarks like Awesome - or you did it! or You are AMAZING!!! (which YOU are!!)

    Glad I got to meet you!


  2. oh and PS- don't laugh when/if you visit my blog - it's not finished yet!! I have been terrible sick! and just can't figure some things out!!

    Happy Crafting!

    Steph :)

  3. I'm glad your first sale went well. I would love some magnets with bees on them...Go figure!
    Happy 100th post!

  4. I have a fondness for birds. Also red and aqua. I can't wait to hear how you fine tune the booth, it's fascinating to me.

  5. Your booth looks awesome Lisa! Sounds like you actually had fun at the market. Good on you!

    Magnets? Something in red for me - that would compliment my kitchen -ladybirds, funky flowers?

  6. I'm tempted to say something truly naughty, but i'll refrain.

    Jellyfish. It's my new thing. Don't ask.

    (P.S. your stuff is awesome. It's been fun watching you make all this cool stuff!)

  7. ohh, how did I miss this!?!
    hmm....something limey and graphic...or just limey. you know what my kitchen looks like.
    or navy or black and white graphic. :)
    it was so fun to see you at the craft show and I'm so happy everything went so well!

  8. Congratulations! I would love magnets with quilts or dogs or golf. How odd is that combination? :) Love both your crayon totes and magnets!


Got something to say?
