My project for this year's Extravaganza was an altered memory box.
Two sides of the altered memory box exploded with tags featuring me and Dad.
The days and last minutes leading to the Extravaganza seemed endless but in the end it all proved to be a worthwhile experience.
I spend a lot of prep time before the day begins. I want all the crafters that sit at my table to not stress out or have hissy fits cause we have 15 minutes left and they're still working on the first part of the project. I've been on the other side of the game and I know that when you stress you DON'T have fun. Not having fun leaves you with an incomplete project that you'll shove under the bed or hide in a drawer where it will stay FOREVER! Believe me, it's happened to me and I never want that to be the case with whatever it is I create for this event.
I'm happy to report that everyone finished their altered boxes and from the looks on their faces at the end of the day, it looked as if they were satisfied with their project. Lots of positive feedback leads me to believe that they will not be putting this project under the bed!
Have a wonderful Sunday and remember to make every moment count.
