New Business Cards

With the opening of my Etsy shop I figured I needed to order some updated business cards. What do you think? Would you want to buy my crafts?

My First Craft Show

Earth Day 2011 was wildly successful! Not only did we have so many sweet customers, we made connections with local businesses, blogs, and photographers that were interested in our work. I heard "Do you have an Etsy shop?" about fifty times...so I guess I need one (stay posted). Customers spread the word about our booth and brought their friends back to us. It was crazy to see people walking around wearing my bags and pins. I thought this festival was my end goal but I'm realizing it's just the beginning...

If you didn't make it out to the festival, here are a few photos from the sunny day (we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather!)

Just after we finished setting up

My class was singing at Peace Park with their music teacher, Violet. So I had to leave my post for a bit to help them and cheer them on. They were awesome! Here they are practicing before the performance.

Back at our booth...some lovely customers (who also happend to be Stephens ladies)

I'm already excited for my next craft show. When it will be, I'm not yet sure. But for now I'm happy to relax :)

Sunny Spring Break Findings

I'm currently spending my long-awaited Spring break vacation at my future home in RI. The weather has been gorgeous (minus that random snow yesterday). During the week I've come across some goodies to bring home with me...

Trevor and I took a trip to New Jersey to visit with family and do some work. Trevor is currently filming a documentary on musician Ace Enders. Ace and his family live in Hammonton, NJ so it worked out nicely for the weekend. Check out Trev's production company and Ace Enders! Both are talented artists :)

Anyhow, Ace's recording studio is located above an antique shop. While Trevor was busy filming I browsed every nook and cranny of the shop and ended up finding a couple souvenirs for my collection.

Vintage Florida post cards

Vintage compact

Back in RI Trevor had an itch for art and we were on a search for a large canvas. We made a stop at Joann's (which is much larger than the Columbia store) and I found a couple fabrics for upcoming projects. I have a lot of sewing to do to prepare for the Earth Day Festival on April 17th!

Then, at Michael's I found these fantastic circus-themed note cards and journal...

I return to Missouri tomorrow afternoon. Back to reality. I reallllly need to start sewing like crazy if I'm going to be ready for the festival!
