{ Crafts From Christmas Past - Well, Last Years... }

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 aprons are totally inspired by Meg Duerksen she's pretty much awesome and so is her blog if you don't know who she is, you should really check her out! Someday I will go to one of her Craft Weekends.... Someday. Okay, Focus Rachel!

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......
