This has been one of the most productive weeks, craft-wise that I think I have ever had. It started out with me making 4 sets of 4 Scrabble tile coasters, for my brothers friend. I made her a set for herself before, and she enjoyed them so much she ordered some for a friend and family members for Christmas. A chance to make a little extra money? Yes, please!
Then, on Wednesday I was at scouts with Ben, and one of his lovely, crafty leaders told me that she had a booth at a craft fair, and if I made some stuff-I could bring it to sell. I could've died from happiness. A chance to sell something I made? For someone outside of my family and Facebook to see it? Fantastic! So I came home, got on Pinterest to look at the things that I had been wanting to make, and narrowed it down to things I can make with what I had-or very little money. Then I borrowed some Cricut cartridges from his scout leader, and set out to make some stuff.
From Wednesday night until Saturday morning (when the fair was), I got 5 hours of sleep. None of which was Friday night. And It was worth it. I love crafting, and would gladly forgo sleep any day of the week to have the chance to do it! Whether or not I sold anything was not important, since I had someone in mind for almost anything I made-just in case.....the chance that people would get to see it was what made me happy.
I didn't get everything done I had planned, and some of it didn't turn out like I wanted. That's alright. I had a blast, and I am SO grateful to Cheryl for the
On that note, here are a few pictures of what I did........
|My Camp Half-Blood Painting, with hand cut vinyl. I love this, and am planning to make a few for my family members that are as in love with the Percy Jackson series as I am. This one sold though.|
|This is also a painting + vinyl, that I gave to my sister for my niece, Mia.|
|These are natural stone tiles with vinyl coasters that are now my Mom's.|
|This was my attempt at melted crayon art, using a glue gun. NOT A FAN. Too hard to control where it goes, and it takes forever to do. Sold.|
|I love this saying. This tile is now hanging in my kitchen.|
|Vinyl and tile coasters, Asian Edition. Sold.|
|Animal print vinyl and tile coasters. Sold.|
|These are some of the coasters that were ordered for Christmas by my brothers friend.|
|More of the coasters......|
|last of the 16 coasters that were special ordered.|
|Though it is by no means perfect (owl anyone?!?), can you guess which coaster is my favorite? Can you? Hmmm..... =)|
