Been Creating and Playing!

In two weeks, I'll be participating in my first Art and Wine Festival in Alameda. This is going to be a big step and I am excited and nervous about doing a two day show! I have to start organizing and figuring out what I am going to show. It can't be a "Scrapbooking" book, its going to be more of an Artist booth, so I am bringing all my jewelry along with a bunch of ready-made crafts. I starting making these magnet boards which are also dry-erase on the back. I think they are super cute and perfect for a gift for someone. I don't want to make things that are too expensive, I want people to be able to take something home and feel like they got a great deal and love what they purchase.
I have also been hosting crops along with Nancie at Scrapbook Territory. I really love doing this! I love spending time with friends, and creating, so this is definitely a win/win situation and we'll keep them going through the fall! I have a great 10 hour crop planned for August 28th and its already almost sold out! I am thinking I need to do these more often.. maybe every other month instead of every 3 months.. hmm... I started a Project Kit of the Month club starting with July 15th, and I am really excited about it. I am making these affordable at $20 per month, and you'll receive a ton of product, along with instructions to make the pictured project. This month will be Maya Road Large Bottlecaps which you'll receive two full collage sheets, a bottle of stickles along with tons of other fun things to play with. These are projects you can get done at a crop and give as presents. If you'd like more information, see HERE. I have a ton of ideas which I'd love to turn into mini kits, so it's going to be hard to choose just one each month! Stay tuned near the end of a the week for a giveaway here on the blog!
