This weekend I had the privilege to have my own booth at the Fullerton Flea Market. It was my first ever fair and I was beyond excited (and a little over my head with only 2 weeks of prep time). My mom and I started working right away to get everything ready. I was glad to have spring break to work on it since I needed every second. We made lots of merchandise, sewed a new canopy tent (our old one was falling apart), bought and painted shelves, and other details. We finally pulled it all together and it turned out better than we both imagined. It was a magical little tent, the sunlight shinning beautifully through the different fabrics and everything seemed to light up.
The morning of was a fun and hectic adventure. Sandra (one of my best friends) came over and we started pilling everything in her car. We literally had to puzzle everything in to fit, it was a funny view for sure.
Once we arrived we quickly realized how kind the other vendors were and the atmosphere was fun and energetic. We found our spot and set up.
We had lots of lovely customers and browsers coming through looking at everything. I loved hearing all the ooohs and ahhhs as they looked. It was fun chatting with people and hearing different stories.
To see all the photos go to our facebook page :)
And this beautiful lady is Sandra, my helper, amazing friend, artistant herself, sales assistant, and everything else that is good on this earth. :)
Thank you for your help!!
Recently I started taking photos with my phone (iPhone 4s) instead of my camera and it’s becoming really enjoyable. I hate having to carry such a heavy camera and lenses around with me, especially on adventures. My brother bought me phone lenses for Christmas and it made life so much easier! I love playing around with the macro lens and am surprised how detailed the photos come out. I probably have about 7 photo apps on my phone and I tend to switch around which ones I use from time to time. My ultimate favorites are Tadaa, VSCO Cam, PicFrame, iQuikDoF, Instagram, T.Camera, and a few others. Play around with different apps and see which ones you can use to show your photo style :)
I will try and post photos more often on here as I go through my adventures.
I haven’t blogged in a while because I’m planning my new brand and focusing all my energy on it instead of CB. (aw sorry CB)
I want to start a blog just for Grace Belle but I’m worried it might be a little to early to start it so I thought until that happens I’ll put up sneak peaks and snippets from it here :)
So without further ado here’s a peak in my private Pinterest board;
I’ve been looking for a cute planner everywhere and when I didn’t find one so I opened my photoshop and started making it! I combined some of my favorite photos that I’ve collected on pinterest and I also put a collage together for the cover (of my company inspirations). The pages are simple, showing the month view and week view at the same time and having a to-do list on the back. Behind the weekly pages is a monthly money management section (much needed in this economy).
This year I will give it away for free to see if enough people want it, next year I will set a price. So take this chance to download your own copy of a pdf! And as always I recommend MGX printing to print it, they have the best quality and price! Then go to Staples to bind it.
Step 1) Download it here (personal use only, non commercial)
Step 2) Have it printed (MGX printing is theeee best) I printed it with thick pages so it cost me about $30 including shipping but you can print lighter pages too
Step 3) Cut all the edges and the weekly tabs by following the cut lines
Step 4) Got to Staples and have it holepunched, put them in order, add clear sheets to the front and back, and bind them (only cost me $5!)
Step 5) Enjoy! (if you want to you can even rip out the weekly pages once that week is over)
Ah the 12:12 am on 12/12/2012
This calls for a wish everyone! I wish for …………………….. Okay I really won’t tell you because that would ruin the wish!
Just wanted to wish youuu a happy day and week! All those of you that have finals, best of luck and hang in there, we are almost done! :)
