A couple other's I know are having sales as well, such as:
Anycards - wonderful handmade trinket boxes, jewelry dressers, and picture frames (see right sidebar)
One9Designs - beautiful handstamped silver jewelry - all customizable with names, letters, etc.
KasaCollection - a very talented shop owner - makes handmade clothing that is really adorable and trendy

Craft Show Tags

Last Saturday, as a girls day out for my mom's birthday, the two of us went to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio where we had a lot of fun and got some great ideas! Coming up in November is the Mars Craft Show, which I am going to be a part of, so my mom and I came up with a ton of ideas this weekend for how to set up my booth and my crafts. One of the things that I came up with was how to tag my items, and with the endless amount of supplies I get from my mom (she always has exactly what I need), I managed to make these tags tonight - I got 2 finished completely, and about 12 more on the way. I'm pretty excited about them, so I just had to share! Maybe at some point I will take some pictures of my entire process, but for now, the final result will just have to do! The awesome logo you see is from my friend at CityOfDionne.

Dionne's Surprise

My wonderful friend at CityOfDionne was kind enough to do a swap with me - she made me some logos for my business, and told me to surprise her! I finished her surprise tonight, and just wanted to share it, I think it turned out well!! What do you think?

Desk Overhaul

My in-laws graciously gave me my MILs old sewing desk to use for all the sewing I've started to do recently... it was one of those great ones from the 70s that had the sewing machine built-in. So... long story short, I ended up overhauling it! The fabric badly needed to be changed, if for nothing other than the musty smell, and the piece just needed some love and updating. I took out the old sewing machine, painted it, and replaced the padding as well (anyone want an old sewing machine!?).

Here are the before and after pictures! I am REALLY excited with how it turned out!

If any of you are looking for a chuckle... check out the chairs legs... haha! Just adds to the character, right?

Fabric Giveaway

Looking for some new fabric to inspire your sewing??

Check out this giveaway (no strings attached), from The Crafty Procrastinator. Alicia at Anycards alerted me to this giveaway, and I entered!

I never seem to do well in these things, but maybe this will be my turn! Or, maybe, it will be yours!

I also found an adorable quilted place mat pattern at A Quilting Life.
