Crafts: What are you doing!!?

18 Oct

What the heck have I been doing? This..

 

My first but not my last Taggie ๐Ÿ˜€

Custom order loop scarf – looks to big on me because it is ๐Ÿ˜‰ Made it for a normal height person ๐Ÿ˜› Don’t make fun of me!!

Frames Frames Frames Frames

Painting a ton of frames for the craft show

That is a pile of 22 burp cloths

So far I’ve finished three for an order ๐Ÿ˜›

24 more burp cloths, 4 taggies, 10 more frames to go….

So if you think I’m slacking and I’m falling behind – I am .. but I’m not!! I’ve been working super hard lately making sure that I’ll have everything ready for the craft fair. I also finished a tan twisted loop scarf but I’m not selling that one. Made it for my mom ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll try to remember to take a picture of that one for you because it’s by far my favorite after the teal one!!

I’ve got two more stripes to go on the purple scarf shown above and then I’ll be sending that out. So excited because it’s the first crocheted item that I’ll have sold on etsy and I have a feeling it won’t be near my last. The yarn I use is wayyyy to soft and silky to pass by. It’s hard to sell something like these on etsy because people want to put it on and feel it but I can guarantee once you put it around your neck – you won’t want to take it off. I had to pull the teal one off my mom and promise her three in order to get it back ๐Ÿ˜›

Cup cozies are the other thing I forgot to take a picture of.. need to remember that so you can see! I’ve them all finished except sewing the button on! Since I had work off today and I was in a cleaning mood, I decided to go through all the paperwork I had been putting off, cleaning the kitchen and other easy chores. Tonight I got 10 burp cloths ready to be sewn tomorrow so I can just zoom through those. I have a lot of fun new fabric and new items to post but I’ve decided not to post them until after the craft show in case I sell out!

I am however making myself post at least three items a day of supply items that I’m not longer using. My team on etsy is doing a Destash Bash before the Christmas season hits. We are getting rid of all the old craft supplies we aren’t using that are taking up space in our areas. The last thing you want to do is be stressed out with orders and rummage through piles of stuff you don’t even want just to find what you need! Plus someone else’s trash is always another crafters’ treasure. We have been having a blast doing this and I’m so excited to send out all my goodies ๐Ÿ˜€

So what are you doing??

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I can still manage to keep you updated on things I’m doing to get prepared for this craft show. Hopefully I can come back with some good tips, lists, and info to help anyone else who isย attemptingย to do what I am doing!

Love Always,

J
