Church Craft Fair 2011

Good morning everyone.....I am up early to get ready for the shoe box swap in Georgetown, Texas...I am sooo not a morning person!!!!! First, though, I thought I would upload some of the things we have been making for this year's church craft fair in November.....all the money from the sale goes towards church projects. My friend, Sue Knox, took these gorgeous pictures and I made them into a card set. The design is really simple so the photo takes center stage and for easy mailing.  


All the photo card sets we made last year sold in the first hour so we are making twice as many this year!!

These are prayer pockets that my firend, Ellen, made and I decorated with my handy dandy glue gun and lots of embellies from my stash.

These will fit into the inside pockets....they sold real well last year so we made more for this year.

Thanks for visiting...I will have pictures of the swap cards tomorrow!! Have a great day!!!

Hoping your shoebox swap is a success, how could it not be, card crafters are a riot!?! The photo cards and prayer pockets are fantastic, I sure you'll sell out quickly again this year.

The cards are all beautiful Joan. I love the idea of the prayer pocket. Our church should look into this idea. I think it would be great thing to do, there are so many that seek help and this might help the shy ones.
