My Etsy store is getting a face lift

So I have been inspired. I am using my holiday break to create, create, create!!! I am finding fun organic yarn, soft cashmere yarn and luxurious silk yarn and making some delicious creations. I am also making some fun and funky items out of less expensive acrylic and blended yarn to keep the price down on some of my items. No more plan jane crochet for me. NO!! I want buttons, I want ribbons and I want flowers!!

Stay tuned and check out my store in January because you won't recognize it.

But until then I am having a MAJOR SALE. Everything is $15 or LESS!! Shop Shop Shop it is not to late. This Sale Ends January 1, 2009.

Happy Crocheting! :)

Wind, Chill and Crafts

Well, my friend Shanna and I braved the weather last saturday to participate in a Craft Fair at La Habra High School. Needless to say, if you saw the forecast, it was a miserable day to be selling at an outside craft fair. I think this picture sums up our experience. I am starting to really re-think these craft fairs.

First Craft Fair

Well I have completed my first craft fair and it was a great experience. I sold a couple of items that more than paid for my registration fee and I handed out a ton of business cards-- all in all I would consider it a success. I have another craft fair this Saturday at La Habra High school. I can't wait! Christian is going to help me out and my friend Shanna will be there. I am making some cute new scarves with Bamboo, Cashmere, Mohair and Appalachian blend yarn. They are sooo soft! I am starting to branch out into hats as well; haven't mastered them yet :)

well, I am off to crochet. I will post pictures from the fair last weekend as soon as I can find my camera.

Too much to do

I love this time of year but I feel like my head is totally spinning. My husband and I are moving into a new apartment this week, I have to finish 300 bracelets for craft fair in San Diego and I have a to restock my children's items for a craft fair at a pre school this saturday not to mention I have work from 8-5pm. I know this season is suppose to be filled with peace and joy but right now I feel full of stress and frustration. After thursday I will be able to get into the holiday spirit and I am looking forward to it!

Christian and I are picking up our tree on Saturday after the craft fair. I can't wait! Ok I'm already getting into the spirit :)

First Craft Fair

So I am putting together some cute crocheted bracelets for a goodie bag for the Stockings and Stilettos craft fair in San Diego. I unfortunately can't go but I wanted to start doing some intentional advertising.

The bracelets are turning out really cute. They are a simple crocheted band with a vintage button to secure the ends. I hope they are a hit.

I am also trying to figure out how to set up my display for a craft fair in December at La Habra High school. I am glad I have my husband coming to help and my friend Shanna will be there too. It should be great, and if it isn't it is just my first try :)

Journey to Creativity

So I have been brainstorming new ideas for crochet projects. I am experimenting with jewelry so stay tuned ....

Today it is so windy, but a dry, hot wind-Santa Ana's. It makes it difficult to get inspired to create warm, snuggly scarves when I wish the air conditioning was turned up higher :) Ahhh, the trials of an artist. JK.

Currently I am working on a personal project for my friend Whitney. I am finishing up a baby blanket for her new baby boy. She is due within weeks! I am so excited. However unless the weather cools off soon he will not need his new present. :)
