The title of this post says it all! The craft sale on Saturday was a great success and that was not based solely on how much product was sold, but also the festive, neighborly atmosphere in the hall. It was truly an enjoyment to visit … Continue reading
As the days become shorter and the temperature gets colder, I spend less time working in the yard and more time inside our cozy home crafting and designing. This week will be extra busy as I prepare for our community craft sale … Continue reading
Last year I did a post about silhouettes and since then I have learned a new/better way to create them in Photoshop. The first time I tried it was pretty much trial and error until I had something I liked. There … Continue reading

I know not everyone is ready to think about Christmas yet, but I have been thinking about it for over a month already. Our community league has a Christmas craft sale in November and this year I am hoping to sell some of my paper crafts. I can’t really sell photobooks since those are custom made, but I am hoping the craft sale will give me an opportunity to promote my photobook business while selling other paper products. I am still in the brain storming phase for the paper crafts and will post some samples as soon as I decide what I am making.
In preparation for this craft sale I decided to make some new business cards. I have been wanting to do this for a while but never saw anything that I liked. Thank goodness for Pinterest!! I saw these beautiful DIY business cards and had to make some of my own.
I found the kraft labels from Martha Stewart at Staples and the paper is from a few local scrapbook stores. By making my own, I am able to change the style of the business cards anytime I want and not have 200 old cards lying around!
I will keep you posted about the products I am making for craft sale and if anyone has any ideas I would be more than happy to hear them!
