What I like Wednesdays- Colorfest

Welcome to another addition of What I like Wednesdays! This week I like Colorfest, an amazing craft fair I went to this weekend with my mom and hubby. It was a blast, the best craft fair I've ever been to! There were hundreds and hundreds and HUNDREDS of vendors with so many crafts we didn't even get to see them all. (And we were there from 8:30am to 5pm!!) My feet were in agony by the end of the day, but it was so much fun. :) I don't think David had fun...he was basically our pack mule for the day, but my mom and I sure did!

We were booking it and I mean booking it the entire day, so I wasn't able to get pictures of everything. :( But here are some goodies to drool over! I hope you can find some inspiration from what you see because I know I sure as heck did.

 Just as a warning, there are lots of kitty crafts. C'mon, the blog name is Kitty Cats and Airplanes. You should expect it. :)
 Do you see the size of the stem?? It's like as thick as my forearm! It was massive!
 I was so in love with this quilt. SO IN LOVE. I really, really, really wanted it, but I just didn't have the money. I need a fancy machine to quilt like that and add pretty embroidery like this! Come to think of it, a machine like that would cost more than this quilt. Nevermind...


 Teeny tiny little vases! Aren't they adorable!!
 I really want to try this. A dried pepper wreath! And it smelled just as good as it looks.This would be such a great housewarming gift!

 This painting makes me want to watercolor paint again.


 These were all made from recycled materials! Not only are they super cool, what a great way to make money off of old junk. :)

 Those are crab shells! Painted as kitties! Two of my favorite things in one, yes please!

 Dressed up pumpkins!! I love it. This is totally do-able, I think it would look excellent with some orange burlap with some freezer paper stenciling! Future project maybe?
Me and the hubs in Spongebob hats. Because I love the old Spongebob episodes. ("Is this is Krusty Krab?" "No, this is Patrick.")

 He was such a good pack mule. :)
 I love the kitties on this, but look at that ridiculously happy pumpkin behind it all.I smile just looking at it!




I loved this. You change the tile for every season so you always have matching decor! Brilliant!
This was David's favorite part. :) Shows how much fun he had! Too bad, at least me and my mom had fun. :)

Other things I like:





My mom used these adorable candle holders on a lot of mine and my other brother's birthday cakes, but they kind of got lost and weren't used as much for the two younger kiddos. But my mom busted these out and we were all giddy over them. Aren't they so cute???



My brother's reaction to the present we got him. Amazing that he's 17 and not 7. :)
