Farm Chicks 2012 Re-cap

Another year has come and gone for the highly anticipated Farm Chicks show .
My hens were helping me prep all week too.   "Farm  Chicks"!
Farm Chicks has always been like going to camp for me.  I still remember the fist show I did back in the tent in Fairfield and saying "It is like the Mother ship has called me home".  I still feel that way.

  A giddiness takes over me months ahead of time.  And it has become a family affair.  My mom brings her camper up to my house for a week ahead of time to watch Glenn and cook while we get things ready.
Cousin Brooke and her amazing lamp!  Emma found plenty of treasures too, she had saved up her  money and ended up with a whole $76 to bring to the show!  That story made me so happy.

 My cousin Brooke and her wonderful Daughter Emma came all the way from Portland to see the show and help me get ready the night before (T-shirts folding, bag labeling, card all has to be done).

Serena has created an event that brings in fans from literally all over the world, which has given me the gift of friendship that stretches across many miles.  Customers that we see year after year like family at Christmas.
This WONDERFUL customer, Mary Hurd, was SO excited to find this lamp!

 This year has to have been one of the funnest yet!
Thank you Sister for all your help!!!

 I have always had a great time at the show, but this year I had the pleasure of having my sister join me for Saturday!  We always bump up the energy when we are together and then throw into the mix my dear friend Michele of 3 Craft Chicks was just a couple booths away.  Without the help from her and her wonderful family (including Kathy!)I don't know what i would have done!

  We had so much fun with our customers too!  Never a dull moment and plenty of laughter.
Lisa Sharp Loved this vintage swimsuit and is for sure going to wear it!

I had the pleasure of meeting Serena's Mom, Gypsy.  I told her "Thank you" for giving us a wonderful lady who has changed so many lives for the good.  Serena has given me opportunities that have changed my path and my story for the better.  I will forever be grateful to her for that.
Busy Saturday!

I hope you were able to see this amazing event, but if not here is my re-cap.  Thank you for visiting!

Adding a punch of color!

Silly tired girls on set up day. Michele.
