Craft Fair Progress – Part 2

Hopefully everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving! Going into it, I felt a little anxious that I would be taking 3-4 days off of craft fair prep but it was nice to get some R&R. I did get to work on little product labels while I was away so I wasn’t completely unproductive. These were really easy to make!

Craft Fair Progress

I have been trying to work as much as possible when I can in preparation for the big show coming up! That is when I’m not working my full time job and living my non-crafter other side of life. Which is also why I have neglected blogging about it – oops! So far I have made about 15 totes, 9 makeup bags and a bunch of coasters! When I first started getting into crafts and began my Etsy store I invested in a Fiskars Bypass Trimmer and it saves to much time! I got mine from Michael’s with a coupon! http://www.michaels.com/fiskars-card-making-bypass-trimmer/10415366.html#start=7  […]
