3. First Craft Fair at the End of June
As I mentioned above, we are getting ready for our first ever craft fair for the shop! For years I have thought it would be fund to do this and we found one that we thought would be awesome and we are so excited to join in! This is a smaller scale (so only a table) which is perfect for us as this is our first one! I have been scouring ideas of how to best set up and we are doing "run throughs" as we work on getting lots and lots of Key Chain Junk Journals made! Any tips for things that you have loved at craft fairs you have seen? Isn't this picture above adorable? This article (HERE) shared this picture and was great with some perfect ideas for craft fairs! But we are searching for the right fit for us- and we would love any ideas and tips you may have!

I often get asked what is my favorite shampoo and conditioner and y'all this remains my favorite of all time! Ironically I was introduced to this brand and shampoo and conditioner after a disastrous hair cut back in 2021, but the shampoo and conditioner that they used at this new salon I was trying was AMAZING. I love the way it helps my hair look amazing (like I have just had a blowout!) and is healthy for my hair! It is a bit pricey, but it lasts for SO long (and y'all know I have THICK hair and lots of it!) and you can find it on Amazon HERE!

On Tuesday of this week I re-shared on the blog one of my most popular blog posts- 6 Tips for Planning Your Perfect Cruise (you can read it HERE)!

As we prepare to go out in July to a cruise in Alaska - this post has been giving me all of the excited feels! I can't wait to bring you along on our trip!

With Caravan Sonnet turning ten years old I thought it would be fun on Fridays to share some older posts from the blog! One of the things that Caravan Sonnet developed into was a a resource for those looking for road trip itineraries around the United States and World.

One of the most popular posts is one that I wrote back in 2018 regarding our road trip through Alaska (as y'all know we did a second one in 2019 which I will share more next week):

That trip was incredible and is making me so excited to head back to Alaska with my mom on our cruise! I am confident that the beauty is going to be amazing and I can't wait to share it with y'all! 

I hope that you have a wonderful Friday friends! Thank you for making this such an incredible space to come to and connect with every single day. I am so blessed!!
