Directions to Martha Cole's house: From Mopac, take the 2222/Northland exit and go west on 2222. The first light you'll come to is Balcones Drive. DO NOT turn on Balcones (so don't be in the far right turn lane), but turn on the first street right after Balcones: Highland Hills Drive, a residential street that shoots off to the right. Once you're on Highland Hills Drive, it'll make a fork. Bear left to stay on HHD (just follow the yellow stripe), and wind around several blocks. House will be on the right: 5915 Highland Hills Drive. Call if you get lost: 453-2650.

Hope to see you at the show!

OMG! New Soap, Old Bottle?




ok, ok, ok I'm so excited and I really can't figue out why, but take a look at these cute little recycled dispensers...what a simple yet brilliant idea!
New Soap, Old Bottle - NSOB sells brand name liquid soap packaged in old plastic soda bottles, plastic water bottles and glass beer bottles - each bottle is cleaned, sanitized and processed for reuse as packaging for your favorite brand of liquid soap. You could do this on your own and feel free to try it out. Not only do they sell the liquid in the bottles, they sell the spray, pump, and squeeze tops (all tops are child safe). But for those shoppers who’d prefer to buy rather than make, place an order. click here for more info and to shop online. Yes, I placed an order, it was really simple and check out is done via paypal.
(I saw this on Design Sponge, great blog, you all should check it out!)


...I wanted to just share a picture of my booth at The Lone Star Ladies Presents Shop Austin!  This was an amazing event...very organized, the communication from these ladies was awesome!  The craft show was scheduled at 11AM...at 10:30 there were 50 people lined up to get in....at 11AM  the line was down the block...these ladies really know what they are doing.  
As an up and coming vendor and my booth size was only 4ft X 4ft.  We tried to be creative and this is what we came up with...I sat in the back of the booth...it worked out GREAT!  And the customers...they were all amazing!  If any of you live in Austin and wasn't able to make it to this event, please be on the look out next year.  Goodie Bags were given out to the first 30 people...they were worth over $300 each!  WOW!  I really wanted one of those bags.
