More Crafts









I know I haven't been posting a lot lately so I wanted to share some more of the things I've been making for the arts and craft fair. (Please ignore my dirty pool table it has had lots of accidents over the last 10yrs.) The little packages with the white background is eye glass cords for glasses. As you can tell the rest are necklaces . I have been busy trying to make all types of different things so I have a nice variety of items. I just cant figure out prices because I don't know how much to charge in our little Poe dunk town. I of course don't want to cheat myself nor do I want to bring it all back home. I am thinking about opening up an etsy shop after the craft fair is over. So any of you with shops please pass along advice on dos and don'ts. Any advice would be appreciated.




I plan to try and get my fall decor things out today if everything goes well. I will post pics when I get it up and decorated. Thanks to all who come by and visit. I don't change my blog everyday but I do try to get by yours at least every other day if not everyday. Thanks for sharing your lives with me I really enjoy reading and getting to know each and everyone of you. Hope you will have a great Thursday! Blessings, Karen

Those are beautiful! I have no clue as to how much you should charge. I always had a hard time with that too.

I love your Jewelry it is beautiful-Good for you for taking them to the craft fair. I think you will like Etsy. I JUST started my Etsy store with my Mom and she doesn't really do photography so we are running into some issue with good photos. Good photos are VERY important for your Etsy store. Lori at Morning Glories and Moonflowers does wonderful photography for her Etsy store, go check her out.

Morning girl...well it is almost daylight! lol These are beautiful and I hope you have a huge success at the craft fair & sell everything you have! Wow...can you believe how fast the days are going by? I find myself thinking about recipes for Thanksgiving (not that the 'Burly' boys would dare let me change from our traditional all you can eat buffet! lol) I just love Fall & all the changes it brings & the holidays with the family. Hope you have a great time with your mom & aunt out & around...take care & enjoy the weekend!

Karen,
I love the stuff you have made for your craft show. I hope you do well. I am also thinking of starting an Etsy shop.
I'm visiting from MaryJanes Farm. I am pretty new there and trying to see some of the farmgirls' blogs.
Blessings,
