A CHILL in the air...... Time for Holiday craft fairs!!! =)

I'm so excited, and nervous, and pretty much scared out of my mind!!
I have 2 big art/craft fairs lined up on back to back Saturdays!! What was I thinking?!?!

(click on the posters above for more info)

I have been working my bum off crocheting, jewelry making, and display prepping. I am determined to have just about everything I need done for BOTH fairs, so all I need to do is a bit of re-stock in between if needed. Thankfully the first fair has a full 10'x10' space to fill, and the second will probably be about half that. I think it will work out smashingly =).

Here are some new jewelry items that I will be bringing along with me, all of which are now available in my Etsy shop.

I am so excited about some of the new items I have made for the fairs!! I wanted to make some lower priced things that would make great stocking stuffers. I also wanted to expand my crochet inventory beyond hats and accessories (although I will have plenty of those, I'll save those for a later post).

I have seen these cup cozies all over Etsy, and I just thought they were the greatest idea! I had to make some! The re-usable cup sleeves I made my own pattern for, but the mug cozies I adapted from a pattern that I found here. I just made a couple changes, making it taller and using a HDC instead of a DC for the top section.

These are just a few things that I will be bringing with me to my upcoming fairs. I'll be back later with another post featuring hats, ornaments, and GLITTENS!! Yes, I said it, gilttens! =)

AHH! Thank you Jes =). I am feeling totally intimidated, but I'm trying to let that motivate me, rather than totally freak me out. Can't wait to see you at the EMT fair!!
