I walked through this event last year as my friend Deb had a booth. I took the plung this year and decided that I would attend as a vendor.

Then I changed jobs and was struggling all summer with making things for the event as well as find coverage for me to go to the event AFTER I had already paid for it. What ended up happening is I left that job and took a job that I worked Sun-Thurs 8-5 and that helped a TON! I was able to complete a lot more things working those hours.
I have to say I was also very shocked to see several of my items used in advertising. I sent some photos over, but they were all used!
The night before I set up and then Saturday morning I redid my table a little bit. Throughout the day, I had several lookers but only 5 takers :( Several of the other vendors said it was slow for them. Only a few really had really good sales.
It was a fun experience and I might try it next year.

I love Hallowe'en and had so many ideas. I really wasn't sure what I was going to go with for this challenge. And I finally completed a challenge in the month it was due! It was awesome. The concept just floated to me. I had a pumpkin and a broken cat and they just came together. It was perfectly imperfect!
This live show is in support of the Denver Community Farm. I judged the Youth Large OF Plastic and showed in OF Mini, Custom and AR - all scales. I was going to try performance, but with judging I didn't feel I could do that after being so stressed at Ace of Spades Live. Also, the performance classes had odd names, and I honestly didn't think I could get things together in time to show correctly, the way I wanted too and in a creative manner that seemed to be required for the classlist.
I drove up Friday afternoon and got into my motel. I enjoyed a nice relaxing evening and then up early Saturday morning and to the show hall. I was there early to help get things in and set up.
It was a nice paced show. The hall was a little crowded, but it was good overall. I am judged the Youth Large OF Plastic Division and there were some great showers and involved parents! My grand of show is pictured below - photo courtsey of her mom.
