What is coming up in my world....


Sorry it's been such a long time since I posted! I'm really mad at myself for not taking pictures of the stuff I'm working on and posting them. I've been really busy working, and parenting, and crafting that blogging has taken the back burner and I do apologize!

There are a couple of things I have been working on and I'm really excited to share them! The first is my very own Linking Party! I was hoping to get it up and going last weekend but was busy painting the stairwell and didn't get to it. So you can expect it this weekend for sure! I'm calling it Crochet The Weekend Away, it will go up on Friday and be open until Monday. I always get most of my crocheting done on the weekend and I'm sure there are lots of other like me, so this will be a place to show off your weekends work and get excited about the next weekend to come! I really hope you will join me this weekend and post your work!

Here is a sneak peak at the button I made for the Linking Party....what do you think?
It can be found in the button page above!

The other thing I've been working on is making crafts to sell at a local Christmas Craft Sale! It is being held by the local museum and it is going to be super fun! I've been making garlands, mason jar covers for tea light holders, hats, cowls and right now, I'm in the mist of making a bunch of SANTA HATS! They are wonderfully cute and fast and easy to make and I think everyone is going to love them! I'm working from a pattern I made up last year while making santa hats for my friends sons and will post the pattern and some pictures ASAP!

Have you ever done a craft show before? I'm a little nervous! I've never done anything like this before and I'm scared I'm not going to have enough stuff or too much and I have NO idea how to price the things I'm making. I'm really just doing it because it will be fun but if you have any advice for me, I would love to hear it!

If you live in the Alliston area or are coming to it for some random reason on November 12th and 13th, stop by the Museum on the Boyne an check out the sale! It is FREE and promises to be a good time!

That's all for now....I will be back soon with the linking party and the santa hat pattern!

  2. I will be joining your linky party! It sounds great. I'm doing my first craft fair in November! Like you, I"m nervous. I've come to the conclusion that I will be taking custom orders for some things. Luckily its our small town so I will know or can find most people after they order! Good luck. Can't wait to link up!

  3. That is a great idea...I was planning to do the same thing!
    Let me know how it all goes!

  4. Dear Melissa,

    thank you so much for this great idea and good luck!
    Send you many Greetings,
