Second Craft Show

My Mom and I did our second craft show last Saturday. It went well. There were more people than the first one but more of our cheaper things sold, so in the end we ended up doing about the same. It was a fun show and we're definitely learning a lot. I have a whole list of shows I want to do next year. For now, I'll go back to my Etsy shop and start on my christmas presents :-)

Designer PiIlow

For my Grandma's bday, my mom made her this beautiful quilt called Tag Sale in these beautiful colors! I helped with a few of the nine patch squares, but my mom worked so hard. So I took her scraps and did this embroidered monogram as an accent pillow for her bed. It turned out so beautiful! I love these fabrics!

New Office

I know it doesn't look like much. But it's mine. And lots of space...with lighting...everything organized where I can find it!

Craft Fair

We had a wonderful time at the craft fair! We had no idea what to expect from this particular craft fair (some are great and some aren't). I think this one was average. It was pretty cheap for a booth, so it was totally worth it and we did pretty well in our sales. We'll see how it compares to others this year to see if we'll return next year. But for now, I'm pretty happy we did so well and that it's over! I also moved my entire house in 3 days, only 1 day before the show. My mom and I did the booth together and she saved me. I'll step up and prep more for our next one. At least I got my products done :-)

I'll post pics of my new sewing space/office that I'm so excited about when I get back from volunteering all weekend, and some exciting info. about some new products! Check back next week!
Lighting is harsh since it was 9am. The next one is indoors, we'll get better pics :-)
