Upcoming Craft Shows

November is almost here and thus the time for Holiday Craft Shows! I am signed up here in Logan for 2. The first one is November 8th, from 10-3 at Pioneer Valley Lodge - located at 2351 North 400 East. This is a fairly small Craft Show, but last year there were some awesome vendors! Come take a look. The other Craft Show I'm doing is NOVEMBERFEST! Yes, sigh, I decided to go out on a limb and try it. I'm sweating bullets that it will go. I've never paid such a high entrance fee, but Novemberfest is a big event here in Logan. I'm pretty confident that I will at least make my fees back, although I'm hoping to do awesome! Novemberfest is Friday, November 28th, 10-7 and Sat. November 29th, 10-6 at 195 South 100 West. I believe there is a small entrance fee, maybe a dollar or so. But this is a huge event. Over 100 vendors will be there and I'm sure you'll be find something for everyone on your shopping list. So come and visit me at one or both of these fun holiday events! You are sure to find lots of these there! Minky Blankets!This past month I have been going crazy trying to get ready for these shows. I can't believe how much sewing I've done. I have to admit though that I am getting a little burnt out and will be taking a break after Novemberfest. During the month of November, I won't have anything for sale in my shop that isn't already made and then after Novemberfest, I will just be trying to sell out my inventory. I'm not sure what my plans are for the beginning of next year, but I'm sure I'll still be selling on Etsy.

Another Milestone

Today, I reached 500 Sales on Etsy! WooHoo! A year ago, I never thought I would reach this milestone so quickly! It's been fun getting here. I am still so excited about every single sale. This has been a great experience for me. I've learned a lot of new things and have heightened a lot of my skills along the way. It's been fun. Now, I'm looking forward to the next 500 sales and many more! Thanks to everyone that has helped me out along the way.This is a picture of my 500th item sold! Pink Flamingo Onesie. The last one!

Well, I've decided to go out on a limb and do a big Craft Show! Novemberfest is probably the biggest of the year in Cache Valley and I know a lot of people come from all over to it. It's a scary thing to do since the entry fee was so expensive, but I'm really excited about it. So, I'm going to be very busy the next couple of months building up my inventory. I have supplies for a ton of different projects, not I just need to get them made. I think after Novemberfest, I'll probably take a break and only offer already made items in my shop, so I don't have to do too much work during December. Anyway, I'm really excited about Novemberfest. It's the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, here in Logan, so save the date! I'll post more about it later!

On another note, I wanted to show this new blanket that I made. It's a double-sided Minky blanket and is probably one of my favorites! It's so soft and cuddly. I appliqued a heart to the corner for an added touch. I actually sold it last night, but I created a new listing in my shop where a buyer can create their own double-Minky blanket. I have pictures posted of the different Minky colors I have in stock and the different applique's they can have put on the blanket. This way, the buyer gets to choose their own favorite colors and design. I'm also going to just start making a bunch more of the blanket to sell at upcoming craft boutiques.
