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 :)

  4. 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

  7. 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. :)

  17. 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!

  20. 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"

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

  22. 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!

  28. 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??

    ReplyDelete
  29. 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!!!
