A Success!

Well, I promised a Garden Show update...
It was great! The weather was very, Seattle in the Spring, minus the rain, which was all that mattered to me! Very windy, chilly and cloudy for most of the day. My sweet husband was amazing and so innovative in the ways to weigh things down. I would have been freezing cold and chasing flying bags if not for him! I ended up selling 11 coffee sleeves, 2 sets of produce bags and 6 totes (a few medium, a few small). So, I would say a success! Not to mention all of the exposure I received by just being there. Many people took my business cards and asked questions, so I'm confident that this will lead to more interest! Plus I'm excited now because I have several items for my etsy shop since I haven't been posting there as much as I would like to.

While I'm talking about shows, I should also mention the show I will be at next weekend. Yes, another show coming up! This one will be smaller and more quaint, but I'm just as excited. Here is the link to the I Heart Indie Crafts website with more information, if you are free next Sunday from 12-4 and in the Kirkland area, please come by and visit me! This is also a free show. Can't wait to see what happens there!

Garden Show

Well, I have been sewing up a storm, with a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel. I don't remember if I told you all, but I will be a vendor at a local Spring Garden Fair, here in Bothell this coming Saturday. I am SUPER excited, first of all because I was received an invitation, but also because there is so much publicity for this show that I'm sure to get some serious exposure! If you live in this area, please stop in and say "hi", there is no admission fee and I think it will be great fun, lots to see and learn! Here is the website...

In preparation for this fair, I just completed (with my sweet gram's help!!) 47 drink sleeves. I'm also planning to bring around 20 medium totes, 6 sets of produce bags and around 15 small totes. I found out about the show at the begining of April and I haven't stopped sewing since! Anyway, I'm a little overwhelmed, but really can't wait to see what kind of reception I receive. I will post pictures this weekend and all the juicy details! Thanks for all of the good luck I know you are sending my way! ;}

p.s. The picture up top is what 47 drink sleeves looks like, yikes!!!

Gift Ideas!

Okay, so in the past few weeks, I have sent out 2 large orders of small tote bags for bridal parties. I just thought I would let everyone here know, that I love doing custom orders and if you have gifts you need to purchase, please visit my shop! The small totes make especially good bride's maids gifts or even the perfect reusable gift bag for a birthday gift! If you are interested in a custom order, you can start a conversation with me on etsy, or email me directly. My email address is on the side bar of my blog. Just thought I would take a minute to post the picture of the custom order I just finished. There are some lucky gals out there about to receive these totes as part of a "thank you" for being a great friend/sister/cousin...
