It's late and I have more to share...

Maximus had a visit with the vet today
if you now what I mean....
I can hear him in the bedroom,
he must be a little uncomfortable
since the pain medicine wore off.
poor baby boy...
I have to go mother him some....
I'll post more soon.

craft fair

How'd it go? you ask....

When I arrived I found my table stuck back in a corner...
ah not a good thing = bad energy flow = no customers.
I was able to switch with my friend & his wife.
It turned out to be a good thing for both of us, they needed the extra space the corner offered and I was near the doorway, being one of the first tables people could stop at.
The post-it sticky notes were popular "believe" ones sold the most.... The pencil business card was so clever and worked well!
I made the small journal so I could take emails and orders and it turned out to be popular, I plan to make more.
I sold several angel art prints, alittle bit of everything else, magnets, trees, tags, & garlands.
I loved talking about my stuff and how I made it and how I can customize pendants and art prints.
Another thing about the craft fair was meeting
all the neat crafters.
I bartered for a few things, too.
Ended up with the coolest holiday cigar box purse,
a "one of kind" cake stand and the most delicious cupcakes.

It's an exciting time

Today I'm participating in a craft fair. I've been working hard to have some of my stuff ready. It's a second job! I love it, though!! I haven't done a craft fair in a really really long time. The last one was so awful. It was downtown in a concrete courtyard on a very sunny & hot day. The crowd was in a buying mood whatsoever. This time it's different, I don't care if nothing sells, I won't base my talent on lack of sales....I'm gonna have fun, period.

Here's some of the stuff I put together....Tell me what you think???

These are post-it note pads using my original artwork.

Jewelry pieces. I decided not to make the necklaces but only the pendants pieces to show the work and then customize them to the person buying the pendant.

Matted prints of my artwork. I scanned then printed the artwork. I embellished them to individualize two alike.

I lifted this idea from a Somerset magazine. It's flashcards made into a garland. I have fun making these but they were so time consuming! I figured they can be used to decorate a gift box or bad. Or used as tree decoration.

This was my idea for a business card. I plan to hand out to anyone interested in my stuff. I broke my electric pencil let's hope I made some cash to replace


Decorative trees. Fun to make but once again very time consuming.

I bought a small journal and altered it with a painted angel. I plan to have anyone interested to give me their email address and better yet to give me an order for a custom piece
I'll take photos of the craft fair and my table. I'll let you know how it went.
