Did you know I have an Etsy shop? You actually may not have known that. I haven't really done a whole lot with it. Well, not as much as I would like. It is Bluebird Cottage Designs.
Now that I do not have the demands of a teaching career, I've decided to put a little more effort into the shop rather than just letting it sit idle in Etsy oblivion. I recently heard about a local craft fair and with my newfound gumption for BCD literally just threw everything together that I could in one week to prepare for it. Luckily, I had a ton of cabochon pieces that had never been photographed or posted on the shop site that were ready for display. I had never set up at a craft fair before, so the booth setup was just thrown together too from things I was able to find during my one week of preparation. My mammaw would be so pleased because I even used her vintage lace tablecloth. The booth had a cutesy cottage vibe to it--a trove of assorted treasures!
(Please excuse the photo quality. There wasn't a shred of natural light in the whole place.)
My sister, mom, and a friend were a tremendous help! Overall, it was a great experience. Am I ready to sacrifice all of my weekends to do craft fairs? Not a chance! But it was something fun to do. And now I can say that I've done one. In my rush to get ready for this Holiday Extravaganza, I sewed some cute holiday outfits. Want to see?
They're just some simple children's pieces that coordinate perfectly together. I even made some for my own little ones--a bow tie for Caleb, a necktie for Eli, and a Christmas tree with a button on top for Lydia Grace!
