Whew! What A Weekend!

15 Oct

My dad and I did the second phase of prepping the tent today. We spent most of the day figuring out how to hang things throughout the tent and making it stable and look awesome.


It may be hard to tell but since the tent poles make an X instead of going straight across we needed to find something we could use like a pole that could carry weight as well as attach to the tent poles. We went to Home Depot and bought some PVC pipe. My dad drilled holes on each side to attach to the poles and we are using zip ties to connect it to the X poles and to make it sturdy and hold more weight.


After those were in place the rest came together easily. We used Velcro dots to hang up the banner, white plastic chain to hold the bar to hang my scarves on, and zip ties to attach the lattice to the PVC. Putting the tent together the first day is going to be the hardest part! After that, I have a feeling this show is going to be a piece of cake 😉

Only four more days! I’m excited, nervous, and making a mess around here trying to organize it all to pack up:


There’s twice as much stuff that just hasn’t made it to this room yet! It’s going to be interesting to see if it all fits in the car.

Thanks for stopping by!


Love Always,
