It has been awhile since my last post due to bunion surgery I had in March.
The surgery went well but the recovery is forever. I am in a cast and I have discovered that I do not like not being able to do for myself. My husband has been great. I think he misses the old me though. I even miss cleaning house, believe it or not.

my sanity during these last weeks. I am so thankful for that.

My sisters and I have decided to set up a table at the Italian Heritage Fair in Portland on June 8th and 9th. We are hoping to just make money to help pay for all the fun materials we have purchased this year and to meet some fellow crafters. We are excited.
That is why I have been working so hard on making items to sell.
Again, this has helped me get through these difficult weeks thinking about our sale table.
These cute treat boxes hold candy and you can put a gift card in the top, too. It is very simple when you follow the video. I made one a Father's Day treat box and the other is a birthday one. Here is the video on Youtube, if you are interested in making these on your own.Treat Box and Gift Card holder

I also plan on making a sign to go over the top of our table for people to see using this graphic of us: Sisters' Designs.
Here are a few more cards I have finished for the Fair. The beach themed birthday card took me a little time because there are so many elements to it. I love how it all folds down flat for mailing.
The dragon cards are so cute and wicked easy to make. I found my inspiration on Pinterest.
I have more pictures of our projects and all but my foot is bothering me so I guess I will save it for my next post. I will not wait so long in between posts this time.
The weather is improving here. I miss walking around my gardens. I think it may be another two or three weeks before I get walking boot. Can not wait. We are anxious to babysit for our granddaughters again.
