Nichole, Alicia and I sold (or not sold) our wares at a craft fair today.
It pretty much looked like this.

But, while I was there I kept busy with these pom poms.
What were they for?
Wander over here to find out.

Ditched the ghost town early to get ready for a tri-birthday party celebrating two sweet friends and yours truly.

Decided to bring Better Than ... Cake.

Better than what?
I got the recipe from a friend who calls it Better Than Brad Pitt.
Or something else.
(That rhymes with rex.)
But today I call it...

Better Than Not Selling Anything At The Craft Fair Cake.

(Use a 9 x 13 pan unless you like batter bubbling out the sides of the dish,
nearly catching your oven on fire and then smelling burnt batter for days!)

Having a bad day?
Bake something yummy.
I promise it will help.


  1. Happy Birthday Julie! It's the pits about the craft fair, but, my goodness, that yummy dessert makes up for that!:) Hope your day was truly special, Sweetie! Lori

  2. Happy Birthday! Bummer about the craft fair! Darn Economy!!

  4. Errrrrrggggg! That has to be the most frustrating thing, and one never knows which craft fairs will be hits, and which will be misses. Hang in there, you've got great items.

  5. I saw your signs last night at the tree lighting ... But not you! Hope you had a happy birthday!

    Ps my girlfriend had a sign in her hand buy didn't want to carry it around all night... Do you still have them avaiiable on etsy? If so I'll send her that way!
