Last Saturday,  I was in my second craft fair.  We participated in Etsy @ the Beach which was large craft fair in Lincoln City for members of Etsy.   The show was from 10am-6pm and we had a great time.  We learned a lot and sold some necklaces.  I think it was a great success.  I’m ready to find more craft fairs to be in before Christmas.     Our booth with our wares. ...

This past weekend, I went to the Etsy craft show at the PSU Park Blocks downtown.   Diana and I will be in the Etsy at the Beach show on September 1st.  We figured it would be good research to check out the Portland show.  The craft fair was attached to the Farmer’s Market which gave them a built in audience which was really great.  There were probably over 50 vendors with many people sharing...

My niece continues to make the cutest gnomes out of fimo clay.   I commissioned her to make these earrings for a friend’s birthday present.  The gnomes are probably about a half inch tall.  I made them into earrings. If you would like to own one of these gnomes, she will have a booth at Multnomah Days on August 18th.  Each gnome is unique.  They each have a different thing on their side; some have...

I’m so excited that I can post pictures of Diana’s (my kiln partner’s work).  I’ve been trying to take pictures of our work to start up an Etsy site.  These pieces are a few examples of her work.  I love that we have different styles with our glass.  I’m very geometric in my designs.  She has more of an abstract style.  I think our styles complement each other.  You can...

My very first craft fair is this Sunday.  I’ve been crazy busy trying to get everything ready.  I’ve gotten all the supplies we need for our booth.  I’ve made signs and business cards.  I think we are just about prepared.  My kiln partner and I still need to do a mock up of what our booth will be like.  After that we can pack everything up and be ready to go.  I’m very excited...
