Workin on some make-overs!

Hey Guys!

Been about a week since I last posted!

Last Sat I spent close to 3 hours setting up my booth and pricing everything! My nerves finally got to me Saturday night and I was quite the sicky icky! I'm over the nervous bit and am just blown away by all of this!

I just started 9 months ago....remember? Back in Nov Jason's aunt traded me her sewing machine for Bella's bassinet and I was clueless! It didn't take me that long to catch on but what an improvement from then til now! Who woulda thought I would actually have my very own booth in a prim shop??!! Not me!

So Ive been working on swaps items for Janene, what a sweetpea she is!
You should see this BIG box of goodies she sent me! I almost died when I opened the box a little while ago! WOW!

Janene - you are AWESOME and I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!!
Because you sent me so much, you have to wait another day before I can ship out your goodies:) I have to get to my booth to get some more prims for ya!!!!

I will be posting pics of my goodies from Janene as soon as my cam battery is charged! For some reason my one battery is not holding a charge and its pretty much brand new:( So I'm only working with one battery here! They are SO darn expensive!

Ive also been finishing up a few wooden items to take to my booth in hopes they will sell, although I'm not real sure what to price them at!

Ive got so many more wooden things to get painted and primmed and decided if I want to keep them or not!

Thank you ALL for your wonderful comments on my last post. They made my day all the more bearable!

Ill be back soon to post pics of my goodies from Janene:)

Jenn, your booth is going to do great! Everything you have done from the beginning is awesome! Some people just have a knack for primitives, and you are one of them! You have a hidden talent that you didn't even know you had! But we all see it. And I hope you see it in yourself too.
I love everything you have ever made and these new items are no exception.

Janene said...

WoW! You got that package fast!
I am so glad that you like everything...I wasn't exactly sure what you would like.
Your wooden makeovers turned out great! You shouldn't have any trouble selling those babies!
I agree with Carolyn...your talents are abundant!!
Enjoy your day and your goodies!

Your makeovers look great. Everything turned out so prim!! Pricing is always hard. You don't want to charge alot but you can't give it away either. I always think what I would pay and usually go with the first number that pops up. Good luck. Can't wait to hear how you are doing.

Oh-I do remember when ya first started...and I thought ya did great then... ASWESOME sewing talent/skill/ability, whatever it is, you've sure got it! I got my machine a month after you did...I STILL can't even figure out the automatic needle threader thingy...LOL...I've given up on learning to sew. I have NO talent/skill/ability or whatever ya want to call it--when it comes to sewing :(
You will do well with your prim booth, girl! ALL your work is just wonderful! Your Primitive Smalls are finished just perfectly! :)

I can't wait to see what Janene sent ya...I know she packaged up some fabulous goodies for ya!

Hugs, Kath

All your makeovers are beautiful! So talented! And I wish that I had access to your booth. I would be a faithful shopper there for sure!

Sure wish I lived near you I'd be haunting your booth buying everything up:) Yes, pricing is hard even for a yard sale I have trouble, yet I don't want to give it away either:)

Have alot of fun with it:)
