Christmas Crafting

Christmas Crafting

I’m babysitting my cousins tonight because it’s their parents Christmas party at work. So, we’re crafting.

I got everything out before they got here in preparation.

My First Craft Bazaar

My First Craft Bazaar

This weekend November 1st I will be doing my first craft bazaar. After I set up my Etsy shop, I started researching local craft shows and art shows that I could sell my work at. There are many in my area and so I signed up for three.

Yesterday I set up a mock table to see how how the items would look and how long it will take me to set up. I bought a foam head for hats and I wrapped shoe boxes with wrapping paper to use to display my products and add height to the table.

I ordered business cards online, printed price tags, cut up extra yarn, and have multiple lists checked off and ready to go.  There will be many different items including, slipper, washcloths, hats, baby hats, boot cuffs, fingerless gloves and much more. Getting ready is a lot of work but I think that it is all worth it. And I will have company as my mom and my cousin will be joining me.

If you are in and around the Fort Wayne, IN area come see us in person. You can find all the information on our Facebook page.

 

Check back in November I’ll be doing something fun that I hope you will enjoy.

PomPom Rug

PomPom Rug

If you’ve been keeping up with the blog you may have seen this post about my WIPs, then you saw a pile of pompom’s that I had made.

Well I made a lot more for the project I was working on. I made a Pompom Rug after I saw this one on Pinterest.

All the yarn I used to make the pompom’s was what I had on hand. (I barely made a dent in my stash.) After I had all of them made I started tying them to a piece of pre-cut plastic canvas that I found in my mom’s craft supplies.

At about this point I realized that I was putting them way to close together and was making it really dense. So I started moving them around and gave them some more room and space. I just kept adding and filling in the spaces until I ran out.

These were all the pompom’s I had made so I had to make about three more to finish it.

When I was done I cleaned up the back and fluffed the pompom’s up to look nice.

I decided to put it in my bedroom in front of my bookcase.

In its place.

It looks beautiful in its place and the colors look really nice against the colors of my books.
