One craft fair down, three to go!

My first craft fair of the year was a pretty good success. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to sell much. I ended up making a nice little chunk. Even though this was a very small event it was a good starting point. I have a better idea of what might sell well and how to better display my items. Space was tight so I couldn't display things quite the way I would have liked. Here are some pictures from the day.

Eventually I will get around to making individual posts about some of the items I am selling. :)

Slowly but surely

I am very slowly getting my craft fair work done. It has not been easy. Between working, homeschooling, cleaning, and trying to keep my sanity I have gotten a little bit done at a time. This is crunch time though. My first craft fair is Saturday. I actually have a lot of work to do. I don't have any one project completely finished. o.0

I am making cards, gift card holders, chapstick holders, cocoa sleeves, gift bags and toppers, mason jar Christmas scenes, notebooks, magnets, ornaments, and a few other things. I hope I can get a decent amount of each project done, but we'll see, lol.

I will post pics of each project as I finish them.

Outlet cover

I made this outlet cover a long time ago and posted it on an old blog of mine. Today while trying to think of craft fair ideas I remembered it and wanted to put it here so I could pin it on my Pinterest board. It was very easy to make and looks super cute. The possibilities are endless for the image on front. I am going to try using some Stampin' Up paper and stamps.

I made this one by painting a thin piece of wood with black craft paint and then stamping the image with red craft paint. I added the little crystal embellishments to the lights. Then I super glued the outlet cover to the back.

Cute and easy!
