The plan

Do you remember a couple weeks ago when I said that I had something coming up that was both exciting and scary? I thought about keeping it a secret until it really happened but it turns out that I have nothing else to blog about.
Well the plan involved some of this
This is about all I've been doing in my spare time lately. These will all eventually end up in a can like I did with the spring flowers, The smaller ones I have another idea for but not quite sure how I want to do them. So why am I making all these?
Because I'm planning on doing a craft show with a friend of mine in September. I have no idea if I'll be able to put together enough stuff or not but I guess I'll find out.
Aside from the quilling I thought I might take along some of my photography too. I'll be doing it in the form of either fridge magnets or cards or both.
The picture above I'm pretty sure will be going along only it will look like this.
Any way, if I don't spend as much time commenting in the next couple months you'll know that I'm frantically trying to put stuff together.
Wish me luck. I think I'm going to need it :)

Ann, these are just so cute, I think you will do well with them. You ought to take some of the great pic's you have of Duke and sell them too...they will sell themselves! :D

Marg said...

That is just terrific Ann. We know you will do well with it all. I think the idea of some of Duke's pictures is a great one. All your pictures are just great. Can't wait to see how you do. Have a great evening.

Good for you, Ann.. Starting at a craft show is a start for you. You have so much talent --so I'm glad you are using it, and hopefully can sell a little along the way (to pay for your supplies if nothing else)... Keep it up.. I'm proud of you.
Hugs,
Betsy

I'm so happy you'll be doing a craft show so others can see your beautiful work! I wish I was closer so I could come see your booth full of goodies!

marie said...

You're sure to do well at the craft show...I love your quilling and your photography too!
Your photos as notecards would be awesome!
Are you going to make necklaces too?

Have fun getting ready for it.

Lin said...

Oh cool!! I sure wish you the best of success in that new endeavor.

Don't worry about commenting every day--you just make me feel guilty anyway, so a break is probably good. Maybe you can just comment every other day--hee! hee! Then I can rest. :)

Helen said...

These look very nice! Craft shows are fun. I've been doing it for two years now. I'll have to start prepare for mine too. Good luck!

Sandee said...

I think you'll do well in a craft show. You are very talented. I know you'll keep plugging away to make sure you have enough items to sell. I'm wishing you tons of luck, although I don't really think you need it. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Your work is so beautiful that like Sharla I wish I was close--it would be great to see everything in person.

Pat said...

Grampy said...

Way to go Ann. I know it is a lot of work getting ready for a craft show. But it is so much fun. You will get hooked on it, or hate it. Good Luck

Philippa said...

Oh wow, Ann, this is so exciting! I'm sure you'll love doing the craft fair, as it really adds a new dimension to your craft. Your flowers look great, too, so I'm sure they'll be a big hit however you decide to use them!

Jen said...

Good for you - I'm proud of you sistafriend! You'll have a great time (and it doesn't really matter how much stuff you have at the show - it's FUN ;o)

LDH said...

Oh, exciting! Both your quilling and photography and lovely and I expect will be very popular :)

Sandra said...

these are really cool and will look great in the cans. be sure you take a few necklaces, the sunflowers are cool and lots of people like sunflowers. i agree with Marg take photos of Duke. you will do great and have fun. craft show is the place for you to be. you can post what you make, no words, just photos and that way we will know what is going on with you. OR you could get Duke to take over your blog while you "craft"

FishHawk said...

Maybe you could get Duke and Lola to provide some more fertilizer to help make your flowers grow faster?

Donna said...

WONDERFUL!! You'll enjoy it AND make money! I use to go with an old friend until she moved...
ALSO, don't forget to do something with Duke's picture on it! Like that last one you did with the saying! Cards, pictures, even T-Shirts saying something like "Team Dukester"...or something...Hahaaa...
You can DO This! NO problems!

Jean said...

Ann, Wishing you a successful event! I am certain your crafts will be a huge hit!

Chatty Crone said...

I will certainly understand and Ann - I wish you a big success at the craft fair! You can do it.

unikorna said...

wow you must have a lot of patience besides the obvious talent and creativity. Lovely combination. All the best.

Sharkbytes said...

best of luck with this. i never was good at figuring out what people would buy.

tahtimbo said...

I'm so glad that you are going to be doing this! I know that your items WILL sell. You have a great talent!

allotments4you said...

Hey Ann. I think doing a craft fair is a very exciting (if a little scary) prospect. I know that your quilling will go down well and your photography and edits are wonderful so will make both great fridge magnets and cards.....will you be adding any words to them??

Duni said...

These are great, Ann!
Wow, you're doing a craft show? That's amazing. I know how you feel about not having enough items. I think your quilled flowers will be a hit! The best of luck!!!

Dr Sonia S V said...

Ann they are gorgeous. Happy quilling times!

Molly Smith said...

I love these! So excited about your craft show. You can never get enough done (in your mind) so do what you can and pat yourself on the back!

hugs xo

Sher said...

Good luck. You will do wonderfully and I love those flowers. I will be sending all my positive and creative vibes your way. Good for you!!!

Sher said...

Oh yah....and don't forget to give Duke attention in your time of busy. He will be complaining if you don't and you know it...

Tammy said...

I wish you luck but I don't think you will need it. I think your stuff will sell like hot cakes.

Anne said...

I am a little behind on reading but I just had to say congratulations and good luck! I think you are going to be fabulous at craft shows.
