Well...again...it's been a while.
I do keep thinking about how I need to blog and not just book reviews or giveaways
(although I'm sure no one minds the giveaways).
First of all I have a winner for the Patchwork Please giveaway.......
Karen H (sent you an email!)
I've been sewing a lot lately - getting ready for craft fairs that are coming up.
Little bloomers (I used this pattern - just changed the legs a little bit):
some new ipad cases:
and mini ones too:
I also tried out some fun scrappy garland (don't know where to hang it though)
and these cute coasters that I think I'm going to make as Christmas gifts to go along with some other handmade goodies. (tutorial here)
I had a pop-up shop last night at Honolulu Night Market (it was super last minute, like one day notice).
I did ok - made my booth fee and a little more but I was hoping for a better night (sales-wise).
It was SUPER fun to spend the evening with my hubby though. There were all kinds of great food trucks so we sampled lots of yummy foods and checked out all the interesting people that stop by these events.
He had never been to a fair with me so it was a fun change to have him (and he did all the heavy lifting - yay!)
This morning left me in a bit of a funk as I was comparing myself to other local crafters and measuring my success in light of theirs - never a good thing.
But as I walked to the car (to head to church), I just rehearsed in my mind all my blessings - and it changed my mood rather quickly.
Hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to a new week. I know I am - have a few ideas I want to try out soon.
And an Etsy update (with a coupon) will be happening in the next day or so! I have lots to load up!!
