Logan Gift Show, Papers!!

 So I decided to go outside of my comfort zone, and try a fun gift show. It was held at the Riverwoods Conference Center in Logan, UT. As you can see from the picture, it's a really nice place. I didn't do as well as i would have liked, but I meet some great people, learned a few good lessons, and made enough money to make it worth it. If you asked me if i would do it again. I would say yes! defiantly, just not in the middle of the semester while I'm taking 14 credits. I was kind of crazy, but that's what makes life fun. 

Riverwoods Conference Center

I spent a lot of time and money making these 8 super cute bags, but bags were being sold at almost every booth for much cheaper, and I wasn' willing to sell mine for less then what there worth, so i didn't sell one bag. I got like a thousand
"O THOSE ARE SO CUTE, ADORABLE, ect. ect.I'm hoping to still sell them on e-bay, KSL, or something I'm not sure.

This picture is of Asher and I hanging out in front of our booth. 

I made about 30 sets of fridge magnates and everybody loved them. I had a few different sayings on them, and I sold every single one but 2 sets.

I feel that this was my biggest mistake. I absolutely loved the idea. I made recipe boxes. I got some cute paper, with a clear recipe box, with 6 tabs and I laminated them. I made 20 boxes and only sold 4. I don't think they sold because anybody could look at the cute things, and make it in their sleep. O well, It was a good lesson learned. Now I'm not sure what I'm going to do with 16 more recipe boxes.

These were my pride and joy. They are my secret design. I sold 5 lamps out of 6 that i made. 

So After I completed my gift show on Saturday, I had a full week of paper writing. If I though I went crazy getting ready for my gift show, I was about to find out my brain could go a little further. I seriously went more insane then I have ever have before in my life. I couldn't think straight, So during the week I accidentally shaved the bottom half of Asher's head bold while giving him a hair cut, I lost everything I put in my hands, and I spend so much time on facebook it was disgusting. I'm so grateful that week is over. But I did accomplish writing 24 pages. Including: 

14 pages written on my home-visit write-up for Infancy and early childhood development 
4 pages written on sibling abuse for my abuse and neglect class 
6 pages paper written on the debate of weather of not moderate alcohol  consumption is good for your health

Mr. Potatohead and stuff

:) Today Asher went down for a nap and i came and sat down on our couch. I look over and on the floor lays a Mr. Potatohead. Last night while i was cleaning i put him all back together and he looked great. As i looked at him, his eyes were sideways, he's missing a nose, a mouth, both arms, both ears and a play skinny block is stuffed between his shoes and belly. It made me so happy i couldn't even believe it. Why?? I suppose it's becasue the sweetest little boy had the time of his life tearing him apart this morning.

:) So I'm taking part in the  Logan holiday gift show!! It's Friday and Saturday. I made a lot of stuff and I'm really excited to have my first boutique. I'm also nervous to go outside of my comfort zone. I will post pictures after the show.

:) I just cant get myself to listen to Christmas music yet. I just cant untill Thanksgiving is over.

:) Asher is learning how to talk. He is learning really well how to mimic what we say and it's so dang cute.

:) School is school and I'm SO excited to graduate, it will be done before i know it!!
