Over the past while I've been having a bit of a "pity party", bleating about waiting for supplies, and having nothing to do. Well, within the last 24 hours, I've been invited to participate in a home based up-scale craft show, in two weeks (Eeek!), and a small gallery exhibit next fall. Both of these events came out of the blue. So, all of a sudden I'm excited an energized. Spent today alternately working on the grey hexie bag I spoke of in my last post, and a large group of mixed media bookmarks. The bookmarks involve a lot of "hurry up and wait", while glue dries. My stock was down to 7, not enough to do anything with. I use them as conversation starters at sales, and they don't bring in much profit, but they are a steady seller, for me. This time of year I market them as stocking stuffers. As you can see, they are one of a kind, and presented in clear cellophane bags, so I feel comfortable having them at a more upscale sale. I have also tried to sell cheaper fabric ones, without success, and ended up including one in every bag I used for sales, just to get rid of them.
