Rubber Stamping and Scrapbooking Show

Bigfoot & Pickle Face had their first booth at the Rubber Stamping and Scrapbook show that was held at the Waukesha Expo Center on October 24th and 25th, 2009. The show was a lot of fun and I met lots of wonderful people.

If you look closer I stamped Bigfoot & Pickle Face rubber stamps on the table skirt using a Stazon ink pad in Jet Black. Our child safe/washable ink pads would have smeared so I used the Stazon Ink which is designed to stamp on plastic.

So if you are having a themed party, purchase some stamps that depict the theme and stamp onto a plastic table cloth or table skirt. You can find inexpensive table clothes at a dollar store and the table skirts at a party store [table skirts are more expensive]. At Bigfoot & Pickle Face we carry 3 themes in rubber stamps: Circus Act, Fun with Fish and Farm Friends.

We held a drawing for those who visited our booth and Gwen Simons won the drawing. Gwen chose the Farm Kit and Circus Set 1 and I included Washable Tattoo Body Markers and the Cake Slice project I did on a prior blog.

Thank you to everyone who visited my booth and a Big Thank You to those who purchased.

Free Printables

Everyone loves something for free, so visit this website called Free and you will find thousands of FREE printables including calendars, cards, activities, worksheets, games, coloring pages, crafts, and more!

Here is a little bit about Free from their website:

"My name is Erik and my wife and I have 4 wonderful kids who are amazing artists! They are ALWAYS drawing! For years we have been keeping printable items for our kids to work on whenever they want to color on fun pages. My wife is also a teacher and is in constant need of printable lessons, crafts, and activities. And me? I am always trying to find a calendar, planner, or other worksheet (not to mention the games!). So I said to myself - why not build a website where I can find all this stuff more easily? And here you have it -! :)
I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
- Erik"
