I have been a very busy little bee lately preparing for this endeavor. It is my very first trade show and I am super excited!
I am a crafty lady and love DIY projects, so I am making as much of the display as I can myself. Here is a sneak peek of my painting and crystallizing projects for my dazzling booth!
My color palette is a variety of lavender/purple hues, silver and cream. Here is a picture frame that I found at the goodwill and painted it with darker and lighter lavender tones and added Swarovski 2088-16ss and 20ss Amethyst, Light Amethyst and Crystal Flatbacks to the frame. I love how it turned out (the picture doesn’t do it justice). It has an elegant, fun and whimsical feel that I just love!
I found this frame and little jewelry box at Michael’s. They were both a light unfinished wood color, which I painted and embellished with Swarovski Flatbacks using E6000 to add a touch of feminine sparkle.
Here are what the frames used to look like. I scored at the goodwill finding frames from $0.99 to $4.99. All it takes is a little time and energy to paint and crystallize them, but well worth the effort. If I were to buy frames that were already beautified, it would have cost around $30-$50 each. That’s way I love DIY projects so much! It’s fun to be hands-on and creative while saving big bucks, plus you feel so much more accomplished – it’s a win-win!
More great frame finds at the goodwill…let the transformation begin!
Crystallizing in the works…It’s such a joy to see my dream coming true!
I had to sneak in a little picture of Kashi, the best & sweetest little helper around…she’s already tuckered out with how much work we’ve been doing 😉
I’m really enjoying this process. It’s extremely rewarding and I’m looking forward to bringing all of these beautiful elements together. I will keep you updated as to how the display is coming together…but even better I would LOVE to meet you in person at the show!
Definitely this is what I am looking forward to the most, is meeting all of our wonderful customers in person! Please, please, please, stop by and say Hi, I will be at booth #432…look for all the sparkles at Rainbows of Light!!
Looking forward to seeing you soon and until then…sparkle on!
