Craft Coach Flip Book

Every time we have a group of shoppers in the Craft Coach they are amazed at what they see. We hear things like......

  • "This is so adorable!"
  • "I can't believe how much stuff you have in here."
  • "It looks so much smaller on the outside."
  • "Did you do all this yourselves?"
  • "What do you do with all this stuff when you're driving down the road?"
Hearing the compliments never gets old and we never get tired of talking about how this whole adventure came about. We worked extremely hard on getting Ramblin' Rose to this point and appreciate all the feedback we get, good or bad.  We are still learning about RV etiquette and all the ends and outs of taking her on the road. We finally have our set up down to just a few short minutes, although we are still looking forward to the cooler weather, because in this Texas heat, even a few short minutes outside can lead to some massive glistening if ya know what I mean.
We have also, thanks to a little bit of creative woodworking, made our very own custom paper racks as well as a custom display stand for a big portion of our merchandise.  Doing so has made it where we can go anywhere and if we get asked by someone at maybe a gas station or fast food place if they can take a look, we can let them without the inconvenience of asking them to wait for 10 minutes while we clean up the mess from all the traveling. So to commemorate all the madness that got us this far I put together a little flip book with a ton of pics from the building process. I used some of the Memory File Folders from Heidi Swapp and a package of ephemera from Pink Paislee. I thought that the idea of map themed paper was a good choice considering what we do. Both the map file folder and the ephemera pack had this great subtle color scheme that went great together. I cut the file folder up into several 4X6 pieces and used some of it for matting as well. One folder went a long way! I loved all the arrows included in the embellishment pack and the quotes on most of them were pretty fitting as well.

We plan on keeping this book on the counter in the Craft Coach so everyone can take a look at all the before and after pics.

Until next time.......
