fall hazard

We have to drive quite a distance to get to town, work, and to do shopping. This time of year the biggest hazard on the road are deer and moose.

:D Ta Da!

Anna from Frozen!

Sparkle & Doom Designs Sparkle & Doom DesignsPattern is from Ohana Craft and available through her Facebook page.

I really wanted to do a good job with the decoration, and had several stops and starts trying to get it to look right.

I had to make my own hat, as I didn’t like the hat from the pattern.  I used pompom yarn on the cape but I’m not entirely happy with how it turned out.  Hopefully the little girl is pleased as punch with it.

:) Ta Da! Anna is done!

sale hangover

I had a great sale this past Saturday at the Shellbrook Streetfair.  Several sales & lots of my business cards went home with potential customers.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsHalf my table was crochet, and the other half was jewelry.

Sparkle & Doom DesignsThe crochet side did all the sales, and the jewelry was literally ignored. Literally. Ignored.

I’ve been ignoring the writing on the wall, so to speak, in regards to the jewelry I have made in the last 7 years.  I had started making simpler earrings and necklaces because that was what customers wanted, but not any longer.  I am feeling confidant going back to my original style of complicated pieces, and trying new ideas.  What to do with the old stock that I don’t want to tear apart? Perhaps I should offer $1 deals in my shop?

Now to work on stock for November’s Rotary Sale.  I will be listing stock as it’s made in my Etsy shop, so you won’t have to wait 3 months if you’re local.

If you’re visiting my blog after visiting me at the sale – Welcome! And Thank You!
