Valentine’s Day Crafts.

Well I’ve made three items already, and yes I know that’s not really going to get me into a craft show.  But it’s a start!.

Soon we’ll be able to sit outside and drink a strawberry soda. This is a fake one, but I’ve always wanted to make one like this.

The very first time I saw this,  many years ago, it was made with carnation flowers for the top, now people are making it with taffy candy.  This idea is on Pinterest and so very easy to make.

Owls are also a favorite of mine to make.  I made my own pattern pieces and is so easy  and fun to sew.

Easy is what I do because I just don’t like hard or complicated.

My whimsical cat is from my own pattern, it might need a little tweaking,  but I’m just not sure yet what to tweak.  I’m open for suggestions.

I have to get back to my sewing. Have a fun Valentine’s Day.❤️💜❤️💜

Craft Shows.

I think I’ll give it another try.  I’ve always wanted to do the craft shows, which I did try about 2 years ago.  I just wasn’t prepared the way I should have been.

My lack of inventory was a problem, which I still don’t have, but I plan on doing some sewing , except, life always gets in the way.  So I need to organize my time and get myself  to sit down at my sewing machine.

I need to start creating again, using my imagination and getting motivated.  The need to do research on what the new trends are and what’s selling at the craft shows is an important step to success .

Okay, I think I know what needs to be done.  Tomorrow is a good day to start.  Right now I need to go read my book.
