WOYWW: The Mega-Making Edition
So it's been a busy week. The big boxes of makes have been unloaded, reviewed, repacked and listed ready for the fair on Sunday. Another list has been drawn up of things to make, and a fair amount of knuckling down has taken place. (Scary, huh?)
This time, I managed to get my act together at an earlier stage (although I did have just over 24 hours notice before my first craft fair), and ordered some bags for my bigger items. I'd read some helpful suggestions at the Craftster forum about decorating your own bags, so I spent a happy hour stamping away on the bags and some labels for smaller paper bags. I must admit to being taken with the flowers as part of the font; what do you reckon?
As Sunday's fair isn't exclusively a craft fair, I've been ferreting amongst my vintage finds with the intention of mixing vintage items amongst the crafty makes. It'll be a voyage of discovery, but then most of this business stuff is exactly that at present.
For any of you with teenagers, I'd love to know what you think they might buy in terms of makes. I have decorated box files, pen boxes and journals underway. Any other thoughts? Should I abandon production of anything I've started?
I'll show you more of the makes and the production process later this week. Unusually, I've found myself a bit quiet this week, but I'm sure it won't last....
