I'm so going backwards here on the ol' blog. Please bear with me. :)
Last year I had the bug to start crafting again, well I also was looking for a little extra Christmas cash. Mind you this was before I found I was pregnant with Ledger. So I asked my sweet friends if I could join them in their Christmas craft bazaar they have every year in their home and they said YES! Love you Penny & Sharae. So I popped online where I got a bit of inspiration (don't we all) from all the banners I've seen on Pinterest & Etsy and forged ahead and made some of my own. I also made 5 Ruffle Aprons, like the ones I made for teacher gifts a couple years back. I had already sold one to a friend who wanted a custom one made with Owl fabric for her mother as a Christmas gift.
The day of the bazaar was good, I was totally BEYOND FREAKING out inside as I had just found out I was pregnant 2 day's prior on the 5th (insert denial here). I didn't breathe a word of my shocking secret to anyone and just tried to pretend like everything was all good and fine. I sold 2 aprons and 1 cardboard banner. I know, not the greatest in sales but it's okay, at that point I could have cared less if I sold anything. I ended up gifting an apron to my mamma for Christmas and the other hangs in my closet. After the sale I went home and added a white border along the bottom of the Merry Banner and LOVED it so much more maybe they would have sold better had they had a bit more "bling" to them. I may do it to the rest of them and try to sell them along with the lone apron. So there you have it, my ONLY crafts for Christmas last year.:)
Sorry for my poor quality of pictures, each and everyone of them were taken with my super sweet cell phone! Sorry!
And, here's my only apron left......
