Prepping for the Country Living Fair in Atlanta


Are you going to the Country Living Fair in Atlanta this weekend!?  I am!  I haven't been so this will be my first.  From the photos of prior years, I'm expecting great things.

On Saturday, I'll also be attending a Blogger Meet and Greet with the Country Living Editors and the great folks from Hometalk.  I'm not sure if I'm more excited about the things I'll find at the Fair or more nervous about attending an official blogger event.  I feel like such a small fry in the blogger world.  This will be a big step toward what I hope to do in the coming years.  We'll see!


The Fair is being held at Stone Mountain Park which is beautiful.  If the weather goes as predicted, it should be a perfect Fall day to be outside shopping for goodies, meeting other bloggers, and spending time with my sweetie (the hubby) who's offered to go with me.



In preparation for the meet and greet, I created some business cards.  Here's a look at one:


I'm attaching a sleeve with my blog information to an old recipe card.  I love the old handwritten recipes.  I don't always agree that technology is best.  There's a charm to the old recipes written by a homemaker, mom, wife, new bride, grandmother.  I've had both my mother and my mother-in-law write their favorite recipes on cards so that my daughters could have them when they are grown.  I think it will be something they treasure.

Well, I'm off to make more business cards.  Pull out my old shopping cart and get ready to bring home some great finds.  Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
Angie
