After months of planning and preparation, my two holiday craft shows have come and gone. A lot of work, a lot of fun, and a lot of learning went into them. There are definitely things I will do differently if I decide to participate in another one, but they were both valuable experiences and it was wonderful to meet and connect with other local crafters. I thought I would share some photos from yesterdays show.
Here is my table! I had lots of cards (of course!), gift tags, chalkboard frames, handmade soap, and a few crocheted bracelets. Quite a variety, but you know me, I love to make things!
This is the banner I made with my shop name for my table. The pennants are cut from canvas and I hand lettered the words with fabric paint. The pennants are stitched together with a long length of black bias tape and I made little lace rosettes to go between the words.
I organized my cards in baskets by occasion. I'm thinking I may need a different way to display them in the future, so that more cards are visible at a time. Any great ideas out there for displaying cards?
In addition to the packaged sets of tags, I also sold some individually.
And I had handmade soap! I learned how to make cold process soap from my mom and sister and the three of us have been making it together for years. But I live across the country from them now and I have just started making batches of soap on my own. You may be seeing bars of soap make an appearance in my Etsy shop in the new year. Maybe. :)
Lastly, here are my business cards, looking very cute in a wire basket I picked up at the Country Living Fair this year.
And that as they say is that! I have lots of Christmas projects that I need to photograph and share, so I'll be seeing you again soon!
