Endless Possibilies--Chevron Love

This is a little bit of a different project. There is a women's expo (I really don't know what it is), and different business go and have booth to promote themselves. Merlynn's office has a booth and she was in charge of it. The theme was "Endless Possibilities, the difference is You."
We came up with this cool idea of hanging old windows and then having a fun, bright window hanging in front of it. Our vision was that the frame would stand out among the old, dirty windows. 

 On the table we had a big cluster of white daisies--with on bunch of yellow in the middle. Sometimes it's okay to stand out and be different.

 The "handout" We had chocolate-covered cinnamon bears, then put in a regular cinnamon bear. Again--one that stood out--to be different.
 Oh--now for the Chevron love. Attendees could enter to win this adorably cute yellow chevron chair and quote. Yes--I am obsessed (did you notice the chevron table skirt?) We now have 4 yard of chevron fabric;)
 Here is a view of the entire booth. Very simple--but hopefully people caught our subtle messages that it's oaky to stand out--and you can make a difference by being different.

Spring Pennant Banner

It's been so long since I've made anything. I saw this fun banner on Pinterest a while ago and just loved how bright and fun it was. Lollyjane had originally posted it. It was SOOO easy. I just cut burlap, then used scraps of fabric for the overlaying pennant. Along the top is pompom ribbon. I sewed all three together and it was finished. The only thing hard about it was cutting out all the pieces. It's gives a fun, springy feel
