Part of the reason I haven’t posted in a while is because I was busy crafting for a friend’s baby shower. It was so much fun!
I’m considering selling printable party decorations, games, invitations, etc. on Etsy. I didn’t think it was something that would really sell, but now I’m having second thoughts. It’s worth a try, right?
So, I’ve been a total internet slacker and haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been so busy working on a million projects - some at home, some for Artsy Lydia.
The big news is that I made a few Etsy sales!
For Christmas, I embroidered Moleskine notebooks with the names of friends and gave them as gifts. The recipients were so enthusiastic, I decided to try the same idea out in my Etsy shop. I had 2 notebook sales in the last month. Not a lot by any means, but it actually doubled my total sales! :)
The letter magnet project is going well! Still thinking up words or phrases that people might be interested in buying. This is what I have so far:
I LOVE YOU
BRIDE / GROOM (come as a pair)
…..What else? Maybe custom orders for specific names?
I found this tiny stamp set at Joann Fabrics for about $10. You would think that for $10, they would come assembled, right? Well, they don’t… but they are EXACTLY what I was looking for.
Stay tuned for a project sneak peek tomorrow.
This was the set up for my first table at a craft show. It was in a church basement in Coraopolis, PA. I made as much money as my table cost, which I guess is better than nothing. It was a good learning experience at the very least. Next time: bring a calculator! I’m okay with math, but I apparently can’t do it on the spot.
Table cloth = bed sheet on sale at Kmart
Magnet board = magnetic whiteboard covered with fabric
Card board = bulletin board covered in fabric + ribbon
card box = cigar box covered in scrapbook paper
I knew which colors to use for wedding decorations when I found a TON of this pretty double sided scrapbook paper on sale. I went on to make what seemed like hundreds of pinwheels.
See those white vases? I collected them for months! Thrift stores, antique stores and flea markets.
My cat, Ferris Bueller, enjoyed the card box crafting process.
Never a dull moment at my house.
