Farm Chicks or bust!!

The day is more than half way gone and my list of things to finish before taking off tomorrow at 5 a.m. is truly insane!! Not to mention I still have to do laundry and drive kids to soccer and gymnastics practice.... Oh, and we have been blessed with a heat wave!! Lisa and I took some time this morning to go pretty up our feet. It was such a nice break! As promised, here are some photos of some of the things I've been working on. I will take lots of pictures at the show so I can share with you upon my return on Monday!! Wish me luck!!

Vintage wallpaper decoupage suitcases

I have finally made adjustable cart liners so they can be sold separately.
