So much new stuff!

Well it's definitely been a while since my last post! I was super busy getting ready for my first show. About killed myself getting prepared for it. It was a really good goal for me to do my first craft show. I want to do more now! The show itself was apparently a flop. Being new to the craft show scene I had nothing to compare it to. The other vendors were pretty irritated by the end of the day though. I made about 12 sales, and earned well over my table fee so I was pretty happy! I guess being it's first year, it wasn't very well publicized. I had a blast though! I also discovered that while my camera rocks at taking tiny product photos, it is horrible for normal pics!

After the show was over I was completely burned out for a good week or so. Then I had to photograph all the crap I made for the show that didn't sell. My Etsy shop is so full now! I made about a million little charms and pendants!

Some of the more awesome things I've made lately: Baby Unicorns!

A pink llama dragon!

Halloween kitties!

And some tiny gem dragons!

There are a ton of new dragons, charms, and random critters in my store. I'm nearing 100 listings! Wow!

It seems like business is starting to pick back up now that the holidays are just around the corner. Hurray! I love making Halloween and Christmas stuff!


  1. Becca, that's so cool! I've never done a show either, I don't think I'd ever have enough made for one - I'd have to work a whole year and not sell anything just to have enough for a table I think, lol. But how fun!! Your little guys are so cute! I love the little baby unicorns and the Halloween kitties, actually all of it is wonderful!
    I'm so happy to hear things are picking up for you - Hooray!!!

  2. CUTE!!! You're lucky to have done well at the show - I've done two this year and didn't make the fee back at either one. My two big shows are still coming up though, so I'm hoping for a little luck.

    I'm off to check out your shop - gotta get a better look at those baby unicorns! :)
