Queen Bee, Take 2!

by Holly

O.K, now you get my take on the Queen Bee Market... here is my favorite picture from this weekend.

So, my sweet middle man isn't looking at the camera and little man is barely there.  What's a mom to do?  I was just happy they stopped long enough to snap a photo with me.  (At least big man and I are looking)
Seriously though, they were so excited to come see our booth this weekend at Queen Bee.  I think it was fun for them to see what mommy has been working so hard on, all put together.  And it was fun to have them there.  They went home with the cutest little mustaches on sticks from misfit menagerie.

So simple, yet so cute!!!  That's what I love about them.  And the funny thing is that all of a sudden they started talking in deep voices like the grown men they had just magically become.  It was priceless.  (I should insert a HUGE shout out to my Mom and Dad for bringing the boys since my husband had another engagement and couldn't come.  So, YAY Mom and Dad!)

I was at the market on Friday (since Saturday was big man's 9th birthday... but more about that another time) and was so excited and nervous to see how we would do.  Our roll up and go carmats were gone within 2 hours, which is crazy to me!  By 6 this was what happened...

Watching people snatch them up made me super nervous, and I even considered pulling an all nighter to try to get some more made for Saturday.  But at the advice of my husband and my best friend, I knew I couldn't kill myself over it.  Especially since Saturday was going to be a big day of birthday celebrating.  It was nice to just sit back and enjoy that people liked them so much.  And now we move on and make more for the next market in 2 weeks.  If you missed out on one, they are now listed on our etsy site and we are working hard on replenishing our stock.  Check them out! 
Thanks again to everyone who came out and saw us.  We had such a great time, and it was a great introduction for us into the creative crafting world.  We look forward to the next one!

We were one of those people who snatched up the car roll ups on Friday night. I didn't capture a fan photo yet, but I did give you some love in my blog post. I could've purchased your entire shop, happily.
