Last Chance Craft Fair

I can hardly believe it, but tomorrow is my last craft fair for the season. I feel like I finally have everything smoothed out and situated just right, and now it's about over. sigh.
Osolo Elementary School on the north side of Elkhart is where I'll be. We'll be open from 8-2. This is my favorite craft show - there's nearly 200 vendors, and everything must be handmade! Amazing!
These pictures are showing a couple new things I whipped up recently. =) Felt poinsettias - so perfect for a touch of holiday charm - and would work just as well in Mom's hair as baby's! And miniature satin rosettes - because everything is better in miniature! =)
 Of course, if you can't make it to the craft fairs, you can always call, e-mail or facebook me to order what you need for the holidays. But, I really love seeing my customers - hope to see you there!

New Venue for This Saturday (11-10)

After a day of playing phone tag and exchanging e-mails, I have a new venue for this Saturday (November 10). The Moran Elementary School sent an e-mail last night, saying they had to cancel their craft fair because of not enough vendors. So I was scrambling a bit today, trying to come up with another one that had room, was close enough, and sounded like it would be worth-while. =}

I think I've got it! I'm going to be at the "Winder Wonderland Craft Show and Quarter Auction" in Winona Lake. It will be in the Rodeheaver Auditorium, from 8-3. Winona Lake is a lovely area, so I'm looking forward to it!

See you there! =)

Craft Fair Season is Here!

Hooray! Craft fair season is here! I love this time of year, even though I spend hours and hours getting ready! It's always so much fun to be a vendor and meeting customers old and new! Be sure to check out my schedule on the right side bar for the dates and places. I hope to see everyone at least once!! =D
Here's a sampling of what's hanging out in my craft room, waiting for the big days:
Mini rufflies
Small pinwheels
These are the staples, but I will also have plenty of specialty bows too - including some very exciting new items!
Can't wait to show them to you!

Survey says...

So, the Maple Syrup Festival is coming up soon! Yay!! (pray for good weather - last year was a disaster!!) I need to know your opinion. Usually I sell my mini korkers as a set of 2 for $6.50. Mostly because they are usually multi-colored, and two korkers uses up the materials needed. For instance, it takes two rods of baked ribbon for each korker, so if I need 4 colors, I'm making 4 rods anyway.
 However, at the festival and craft shows, I've been selling them as singles for $4, and they always did well. This past craft fair season, I sold them as the set, and they didn't move nearly as well. I don't mind selling them as individuals, because I can still make the set and use up my materials.

So, for this festival, I want to know - what would you be more likely to purchase? Use the survey thing on the right side to let me know! Thanks!

For the Love of Rufflies

A spotlight on one of my top favorites - the "Mini Rufflie" -
Just a darling bow!
Made with soft, satiny double ruffle ribbon.
Two layered for 3-D sweetness!

Available in soooo many colors: 

 Can also be made with two colors:

 Or with marabou on the back!! =D Way too sweet!!

 This bow is small, just three inches, so it's the perfect bow for for newborns on up!
It's satiny shine makes it a little bit dressier, so it can be used for special occasions, portraits.
 But, it's versatile enough for everyday! =)
