Recently, I had a booth at the Arab Festival, which occurred at the Seattle Center. While my sales were low, I was really excited to try out my new grid wall unit.
I had gotten eight walls at a sale this summer, along with about a dozen six inch hooks, four tshirts holders and a lamp that was broken. When I was at my monthly Crafting at Crossroads event, I mentioned to my friend Kacey (the super mom over at OnAWhimm) my excitement at using my new walls. I also expressed concern at what to need to buy to be able to use the walls with my crafts.
So Kayce offers up her grid wall baskets to borrow. How awesome is she?
I got to play around with layout of the wall for a few days. I even payed my friends Laila, Oraib, and Jill in snacks and products to come over and re-arrange. The best part of the brainstorm session was little adorable Maya, who just turned two, was reciting the animals on the Arabic Alphabet poster, in Arabic no less, in front of Jill, who spent over a year drawing them. It was an amazing full circle moment.
After the grid wall unit got to where everyone was happy, I grabbed suitcases and packed it all with only a day to spare. I didn’t end up using all the baskets and hooks, and also left two walls at home, but here is the finished product.
I’d love to hear what you think about it.
And if you want to come see it in person, consider this your reminder that the 7th Annual Homemade Harvest is coming up second Saturday in November.
