I have some sad news, Friends. Due to bad weather First Thursday was canceled tonight. I'm a little heartbroken. I've been working towards this goal for over a month. The good news is that I have another month to make lots more cute things for March. I'm actually planning on selling at two markets in March so I have a lot do make. :-)
I have decided to look on the bright side about this. Now I have a whole month to come up with lots of new designs. Plus, now I can focus on finishing my Knitted Wonderland project this weekend and I can work on getting my Etsy shop open. Stay tuned. It's coming soon!
I was still working on getting ready right up until I got the official word came on Tuesday night so I do have a couple of pictures to share with you today. I will continue to share pictures as I finish projects and displays for next month, too.
I made Pierre a while ago and thought he would be perfect to take to First Thursday. He might be the only one. It takes me so long to stitch the mustache! I can't draw it on because I'm afraid I will mess up so I just free hand it. So annoying!!! Good thing he's cute! I'm thinking the rest of his friends will not be French. American owls are cute, too, right? ;-)
I bought this super cute neccklace tree to display my button necklaces at my booth. I love the way it looks! I have a few pendants on chains so people can see them as necklaces and then I have a few pendants on the other branches. The rest are sitting on the tray at the bottom of the tree. This is my favorite display piece so far!
I went round and round trying to figure out how I wanted to display my postcards. I finally decided to just buy some frames and stand them up on the table so people could see them. I think they look nice. I still haven't decided if I'm going to sell the postcards once these are gone. I don't know that they really fit the style of the rest of items. What do you think? Honest opinion, please. :-)
Felt Flower Hair Clips
I made these little cards for my hair clips and ponytail holders to use for this First Thursday. Hopefully by next month I'll have my logo finished and I can make packaging with it. YAY!! This card was just to use in the meantime. I loved using my new tiny hole punch to make them! Yep, I'm a nerd. ;-)
Okay, that's all I have for now. I'll keep you posted on all the future pretties I make for First Thursday in March.
For now, the countdown continues....
