Craft fair and other things

So, I'm getting ready for my FIRST craft fair! I'm excited and nervous. Hopefully over the next few weeks I will post pics of all the stuff I will be making for it. And boy, do I have a laundry list of things to make! As you can see below, I have a few tutus done and a few cards. I am hoping to have a total of 40 cards to sell....whatever is left over will go to an etsy store. I've been thinking about startng one of those for a while so stay tuned!

What I've been up to...






I've been a busy little bee....getting ready for my FIRST craft fair!

Sunday coupon, up to $30 off x 2
Total price: FREE

Kotex: 2/$6
Sunday coupon $1 off x 2
Register Reward $1
Total price: $4 plus $1 register reward

scratch that...

Okay, I was looking at my list below of things I'd like to learn once I finish school....I can't believe I didn't include photography!! That's something I would really like to focus on once I finish school. To the point of enrolling in a course at the local community college to learn! Just wanted to add that... and make it sort of a caveat for the pictures that I post later of my latest crafts :)

make it a good one!

slacking

I know, I know I have not been keeping this updated. My last post was in January! What can I say, I'm a busy woman, lol. In the meantime, I have been working hard and creating tons of stuff to share on the blog. I need to take pictures and I can post it all. Mostly papercrafting, and I've dabbled a bit in some jewelry making...with little success, lol. Hopefully I'll have pics posted by the end of the week!

Whew! Tough week...

It's been a very long week, and I've been neglecting the blog that I've just barely started. Tonight, I saw a news story about a man who uses so many coupons and seeks out so many deals, that he can buy $100 worth of stuff for like $20. I've decided that I want to try to do better with my cash. Even though "couponing" as they call it, is tedious, I think it will be really neat to see how much I can save. I even found a blog to help me get started....it's under my blogroll as metroplex savers.

Looking forward...

I love reading blogs. I have been inspired by so many people over the internet via blogs! There are so many creative people out there and as soon as I finish nursing school....I can join the ranks! Things I want to learn include:

1. sewing (have you seen the pillowcase dress?? Google it, it's SO CUTE--if I ever have any daughters/nieces, omg!)
2. knitting
3. baking, Wilton style!
4. piano

I guess you could say that I want to be an all-around Martha Stewart (minus the jail time, lol). I can't wait to get started. But for now, I will live vicariously through others and tuck their ideas away for a later date.

Gettin' crafty!


I love to do crafts. Over Christmas break, I made a ton of these babies (tiny notebooks) and had a great time doing it. In future posts, I will post other crafts I have done. Happy Friday!
