Ride Along With Me...

I have always associated Summer with bicycle rides along paths lined with green trees and gorgeous flowers.  So how could I resist creating a Treasury East Treasury on Etsy featuring awesome Etsy sellers and their awesome bicycle goodness?  From prints, gorgeous bicycle accessories, bicycle furniture to jewelry. 

Be sure to click on the photo to get an up close and personal viewing.  The featured artisans would love to hear from you.

Have an awesome week everyone!

Summer Flower Garden...

OK, I confess I have been holding out on all of you.  I accept any and all punishment.  *smile*  Now you scratch your head and ask yourself... "What is she holding out on?" hmmmmmm....

I promised after the craft fair that I would share with you my newest creations that  my customers at the fair saw before my online readers and customers.  So without further ado here they are!  My mini Fabric Flower Post Earrings.

Are these just too fun?

I have been wearing a different pair everyday and I can't tell you how many times I have been asked "Where did you get those?".

What makes them extra special is that I can't reproduce another identical pair.  So doesn't that make them One of a Kind?  Yuppers.  :)

Now you just know you want to see more of these little darlings.  All were created using "fun", "whimsical" and "dramatic" fabrics. 

I have made it easy for you to see them, click on the photo and you will be transported without pain, I promise, to my online shop.

See you there!

Nothing Shabby Here...

It's been a very quiet and slow Friday, so I took advantage of it and created a new Treasury in Treasury East.

I hope you have a few minutes to stop by and say Hi to the Featured Artisans. To view the Treasury click on the photo. I promise, you won't regret it. *smile*

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

My Weekend June Arts & Craft Fair...

Wow, I survived the weekend!  22 hours in two days is incredibly long, but soooooo much fun!  I met so many wonderful sellers and customers.  Now the important question, do I still have a voice?  For the answer.... NOPE!  :)  The photo above is my table prior to the fair starting.  I love love love my new banner!   My daughter surprised me with it last week, is she just too awesome?!

This is a brand new venue for this craft fair.  I met the owner of the establishment, he is so into Arts & Crafts. 

Since my banner colors are mostly blue, pink & purple I thought I would use the colors throughout my display.  The photo below shows the corner glass shelf I picked up last weekend in a yard sale for $3.  Isn't it pretty with the fresh coat of Sweet Pea Pink?

And now my earring display.  I was so happy with how it turned out.  I found this adorable whimsical metal mesh mailbox at Goodwill last weekend during their 50% of sale, got it for $5, brought it home and gave it a pretty color of French Lilac.  To attach the earrings,  I one hole punched the earring cards, used satin ribbon woven through the metal mesh and attached the card by tying the ribbon on each with a bow.

I can't wait for July now!  Bring it on!  2nd Saturday & Sunday's Arts & Crafts is going to be my favorite time of the month.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my mini show of the craft fair.  

Have an awesome week!

Preparing for a Craft Fair...

I feel like I have been neglecting my Blog and ignoring my faithful readers. So I am here to apologize and let you know what is keeping me from my Blog this week.

I have been crazy busy with preparing for an exciting craft fair this coming weekend. This is the first of what we hope will become a monthly special event.

For this event I have made a new item not currently offered in my Etsy or ArtFire online selling venues.  What doesn't sell, will be offered next week.  But guess what?  I ain't gonna tell ya what!  HA!  So you will just have to stay tuned and hope they don't sell just to see what I made.  :)

But to be honest, they are as cute as can be (don't you just wish you knew what they were?), so I am wishing and hoping they sell like you know what!

I have a new booth banner, YAY! and I have new display stands.  My main focus colors of the booth are pink and purple, to be exact, Sweet Pea and French Lilac,  ohhlala!

I promise to post photos next week and let you all know how it went!  Keep your fingers *crossed* I sell out!  

I don't know that I will have time to post again before the fair, so here is wishing everyone a spectacular rest of the week and an awesome weekend!
