I love holiday weekends!  We were so productive today!  The hubby organized the Peas toys, while I cleaned up the kitchen, sorted through school artwork and did some sewing.  I was working on my sandwich/large snack bag (different from my sandwich wrap)...I'm still working on placement of the "pulls", which help with separating the velcro.  I will try one more idea I have tomorrow. 

Sooooo, I've been hesitant about participating in craft shows right now because I really need to focus on building up my inventory.  However, this event came up and I couldn't pass it by!!!
QUARTERMANIA!!  I've never actually been to one, but everyone I've talked to that's gone said it's a blast.  This will be my first official event, so I'm super excited!  If you're in Central Jersey and you're free on March 2nd, please come and support me!  Here is the information, as per the Facebook event page:

What is a Quartermania Paddle Fundraiser? It is a cross between an auction, a raffle, and a home party! Local direct sales vendors, as well as local businesses, will be auctioning off new items for only 1-4 quarters per bid! You can win items retailing up to $100 for mere quarters! If you like Bunco, Bingo or Tricky Tray's--you will LOVE Quartermania!
Location:  New Egypt Elks Lodge #2457
105 Lakewood Road
New Egypt, NJ  08533
Saturday, March 2nd

 Doors Open at 5:00pm and the “Mania” starts promptly at 6:00pm

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 each - you will receive 2 game paddles
Additional Paddles may be purchased for $2.00 each
Cash Bar and Food, Snacks & Drinks will be available for purchase.
***Don't Forget to Bring Your Quarters!!!!***
Feel free to forward this invite on to all your friends!!!!
For more information contact Melissa Conk at

How It Works:
- Each item up for bid will be displayed for all guests to see.
- There will be a brief description, retail value and how many quarters you will need to bid. Guests that want to play will give their bid (quarters) and hold up their numbered paddle.
- When all bids are collected, the auctioneer will draw a numbered ball from the container. If the number on your paddle matches the number on the ball drawn, you've won that item! If a matching numbered paddle is not held up, the auctioneer will draw again, until we have a winner.
- Once we have a winner all balls will be placed back in the container and go to the next item to be auctioned.
Just send me a quick email or post in the comments section to let me know if you can make it!!
