Silver Bella Sweets...


I have always read about and wished on a star or two to someday attend Silver Bella...

But as Mr. Sunshine's Grandma used to say; "Wish in one hand and spit in the other...."
I never get any further than that because, being the smart girl that I am,  I know which would fill up first...

But I digress...
This year I do get to go....extremely indirectly....via sunny California...

Lollishops will have a booth at Silver Bella this year and Sadie had the awesome idea to let fifty or so vendors send press kits with her. Simple, easy peasy, wrap up some of your goodies nice and pretty and send 'em on to Sadie in CA. She'll do the rest...


There are some awesome kits out there! And as I started to see pictures of all of the pretties other vendors are sending, I started to stress...

Everything had to be just right- I knew exactly how I wanted everything to look. A sampling of my new note cards: check. Some of my personal favorite gift tags: check. Stickers. Lots of stickers: check. Newly designed business cards: checkity-check-check. Everything gathered together, ready to go. But sometimes getting a project from your head to production and even more importantly, to completion, proves to be an interesting adventure. 


I won't bore you with all of the details, let's just say that me, rulers,  measuring and cutting a straight line are words that can probably NEVER co-exist peacefully in one sentence. Sometimes I forget that gem of wisdom and fail to measure twice (or more), cut once. 'Nuff said, I think....

I did eventually (at 2 am today) get them just right and off they flew this  to the post office a few hours ago. I was happy with the final results, just not the path I took to get there....


  If you are lucky enough to attend, make sure you find Lollishops and tell Sadie I sent you...

Until Next Time,
STEPH

I think they're perfect! I love those little bird tickets.

Sadie's booth ought to be one of the best there, with these slices of LolliShops on her table. I hope she takes pictures to share with us later!

Don't worry about pictures...tons will be taken. I'll try to see if I can get my sister to take a few...she's helping me at my vendor table. Your press kits look great and I'm not just saying that as one Army wife to another. :) Okay, maybe I'm a little biased. Don't worry you'll make to SB someday. I did. I didn't think I'd get a chnace...it seems like my husband is always gone. :)

They look fabulous! I can't wait to see all of the prettily packaged press kits sitting out on Sadie's table... it's going to be so lollilicious!

Your packets look fantastic!! How lucky of you to get to go, even if it is indirectly. It's a dream of mine too...maybe some day, if I'm really, really good.....!

It looks darling Steph!
I seem to work better in the wee hours too:)
Not sure why...Maybe because the house is quite...no distractions:)

Hi Steph!
Thanks for following my blog, yours is adorable. I'm in love with your little camel rider!
I wish I had done the press kits, they seem like a lot of work but I'm sure that will come back to you in spades! I was lucky enough to be in the first Somerset ad, so exciting!!!!!!!
Cheers,
Gail
