Upcoming Craft Show

Monday, November 29, 2010

Next week is the craft show at my work. Basically all the people that make or do side business type stuff can sell things in the building for two days down stairs in the main area. It's usually pretty fun to see all the different stuff people you know do that you didn't previously know about. While I'm excited about it I am really not prepared for it. Well, I am but I'm not.

I'm pretty sure I have plenty of stock between scarves and pendants but I just haven't organized it in my head yet as to how I want to set it up or display it all. I have some ideas but nothing solid. Just got a shipment of wire in today too specifically for show pendants and bracelets so I will be busy with that later this week and the weekend.

Most of the pieces I've made I have put on etsy but this moonstone pendant I made this weekend I am holding back. It's just really lovely and I'm not ready to let it go yet. Since I don't wear a lot of jewelry it wouldn't be worn and loved as much as it deserves if i kept it but at the same time I'm just not ready to give it up. So, I'll save it for the show and if it doesn't sell up to etsy it will go.

On the knitting front I finally finished a sock I had been working on a design for. Sadly it took me needing the needles the sock was on to finish it up. Now I just need to write up the pattern for it.

Sock Blanket Square and Pendants

Saturday, November 13, 2010

I just finished a pretty big order of custom pendant wrapping and have finally gotten a chance to work on the new stones I bought at the show on the 31st. These are my first two that I've done for my shop. I love the labradorite and the kyanites that I picked up are awesome. There's a good chance that one of them just might end up in my own collection

I also finished the first square of my sock blanket I'm working on. This was actually finished before last weekend but it took forever for me to get it somewhat blocked and a picture taken. Haven 't started the second square yet but I have some Christmas knitting to do first.
