One Week Before the Fair

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Finally got to post after getting ready for finals at school and cooking for dinner last night. It we had a fantastic dinner and great family time. My aunt and I made Peach cobbler, smoked turkey, ham, collard greens, mac and cheese, I could go on and on. After all that great eating, I knew it was time to go back to work.

Time is definitely running out. I have 3 out of 6 pairs of slippers done. Two out of three scarves are done. I need some holiday prints to include too. So I got one week to finish everything on top of school and my regular job.

The next few weeks should be hectic yet exciting. We shall see.

Craft Fair!

Guess what! My mom signed me up for a craft fair at her church without my permission hurrah! Truthfully, it was probably the boost I needed. I had been saying I wanted to start selling my art at craft shows for a while, but never got around to it (the usually excuses school,work, blah blah). Now that she got a table for it, I got to do it. Luckily, I got somethings started already to sell.

The merchandise is looking like crocheted slippers, scarves, and hats. I am making some prints to sell too. It will definitely get me some more exposure. My art has been seen by very few and that shouldn't be. I should be sharing it more. How else am I going to make a living? This craft fair is just what I need to step outside my comfort zone.

Here is a quick sample of the slippers I had been creating. They had been apart of a school assignment that I did in September about different types of color contrasts. I just have to make the mates and do two more pairs.
