Old Congress Days

3 Oct

The big day is past now! I set up a booth at the local Old Congress Days event. It was a lot of fun even though I didn’t sell all that much. Mom & Dad were there to help – I couldn’t have done it with out them!

I had a bunch of the hanging hand towels on display. And I had the big doily out.The table above held greeting cards and denim blankets. On the other table I had my doilies, hairnets, and baby hats & booties.

Here are some of my doilies. This table met with disaster, well all of them did, but the white doilies got the worst of things. In the afternoon we got wind and a dust storm. Everything started flying. We took our stuff down early and lots of others did, too. Everyone was hanging onto their tents so they wouldn’t go crashing around. The lady behind me had a rough time as she was selling Scentsy -lots of breakables! While Mom & Dad finished our booth, I helped them box up the warmers.

Since I didn’t sell much at Congress Days, I now have all this inventory for my online stores! I hope to get it posted in the next couple weeks.

 

Blogging Vacation

22 Aug

Last week I took an unplanned blogging vacation! That doesn’t mean I wasn’t busy though! Two doctor appointments took up quite a bit of time, plus getting more (*hopefully*) done here at home. I did get my desk cleaned up, my inventory hair nets and doilies organized, some booking keeping done, some sewing, and crocheting of course.

Now I am trying to come up with a blogging schedule that won’t be so overwhelming. I was trying to post every day and for now I will only be posting 3 times a week or less. The main reason for that is because I signed up to be a vendor at a local event: Old Congress Days. So now I am crocheting furiously to make sure I have enough stuff to display. 🙂 I’m sure it will be ok, I’m just stressing. I plan to have my crocheted hair nets and doilies there and some hanging hand towels. Mom is also working on some sewing projects to add to this collection. I was hoping to have a finished denim blanket, but we will see…

That event is October 1, so this is what I will be working on the next month. I am also working on school dresses for my niece. Two nieces in school! I really am getting old……… 🙂

Here are a few things I got listed on Etsy Last week:

Greeting Card Printable PDF Prickly Pear Cactus Hearts 3 Thi…
This is the third printable greeting card with prickly pear cactus in the picture. This is one of my favorites.

Doily Tablecloth 26″ Cotton Natural Color HandCrochete… 

I finally got this huge doily done! I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to sell it or not, but here it is. It measures about 26″ across. Perfect for a small end table or as a centerpiece on a large table.

Hair Net / Bun Cover Crocheted Brown Flower Style Amish Menn…

I listed the brown hair net again as it had sold awhile ago.

Be sure and visit my shop and browse all the items! 🙂

I have my second Prickly Pear cactus Printable greeting card available in my Etsy shop. The message on this one is: Love from AZ. This could easily by changed to something like “Love from the West” if you’re not from AZ. 🙂

Here is another of  my Printable Greeting Cards! Yes, I know this one is going to have a smaller chance of selling since it is geared to Arizonans and Westerners. 🙂  I have a set of four that each have a different Prickly Pear Cactus heart on the front. This is the first one for my Etsy Shop and the message is You Are Loved.

Here is the front:

Printable Greeting Cards

28 Jul

I am very excited to finally have some of my new greeting cards done and ready for sale!! It has been a lot of fun making them and I am excited to see if they will sell. That’s always the question with new products. This time, I’m not too concerned about the selling part though, because I have been having fun using the cards myself!

What is it? You will get a pdf file in your email that you will be able to print as many times as you like! It’s that simple.

I listed the first one in my Etsy shop this week. This one is a Thinking of You Card. (Wording can be changed upon request).

Beautiful Greetings

22 Jul

Beautiful cards make it so much ‘easier’ to send notes to my friends. 🙂 I enjoy making cards, but I often think I don’t have time. There are lots of lovely options out there, tho!

Here are some beautiful ones I found on Etsy.com:  Beautiful Greetings These are all made with flower photos. (This photo only shows half of them.)

or I have a few of my own too: Etsy Shop
