December 15, 2008

The St. Boniface Craft Fair is now history as is more than half of my inventory.

I spent some time updating my site, making sure that the correct items are listed on the site.

Thought I had a picture to post but hubby, a professional photographer, but new to cell phone cameras and very tired, must have had shaky hands because the only photo we thought to take is REALLY blurry! ...Would have been cute, too!

Gearing up for the Craft Fair

The Craft Fair at St. Boniface is this Sunday and we're gearing up for our first venture as vendors.

We have our inventory all set and are figuring out display options.

The other night I completed delivery of a local order for three of my scarves, which had been ordered online. The really great part of that is that you get to see the person's reaction immediately. It was wonderful to hear that the pieces were even better than they looked online!

Just signed on for a Christmas Fair

I just agreed to participate as a vendor in the Christmas Fair that my church is holding.

It is the St. Boniface Christmas Fair to be held on December 14, 2008 at St. Joseph High School, at the corner of Willoughby and Bridge Streets, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Many of the articles in my etsy shop will migrate there for the day and some will go to new homes from there. If I'm lucky, I might have to re-stock the shop!

Here is a flyer :

Premier Post

I opened my Etsy shop less than a month ago and I've learned a tremendous amount about my own process, about selling online and on, in particular, and about the massive amount of talent as well as abundant support out there.

I have been roaming around the etsy site, reading blogs, how-to's, attending chats and craft nights, and shopping all in the pursuit of information and inspiration.

I made two sales, thus far, but would certainly like more. I also had an inquiry about a custom order, which was quite nice!

There is a site that I've visited recently, which I feel is worth pointing out. It was actually featured in the Videos section of the Storque; The Black Spot Books.

The books are handmade from drawing paper and "olde leather". The artist also sells some other items, jewelry and prints.

All evidence a remarkable sensibility. Take a look for yourself at the

Meantime, I've been both gathering previously made items from every nook and cranny and producing new work to put online. Check them out at: http:// and get a quick peek below.
