I went to a craft fair with a friend, but due to poor attendance and the fact that almost everyone who DID show up only wanted to buy x-mas oven mitts, sales were not good. However we both broke even! I even made $2! But since the table was $10 and we split the cost that is not saying too much...
I did, however, make 2 things at the fair, a hat:
and a tag:
While walking back to the bus station afterwards, we stopped in at a store called Rare Funk, which sells things on consignment from local artists. Long story short, you can now buy my hats at Rare Funk in Kitchener, ON!
And that includes these two new ones:
Selling things in an ACTUAL STORE (very exciting) means I had to make price tags/business cards. Since I'm a little terrible at photoshop/GIMP I decided to handmake them...this included cutting the card, writing the words and drawing the picture. (and colouring the picture with crayons!) It doesn't sound too bad except I made a lot of them.
There is a definite value to handmade things, but when there's lots and they're all pretty much the same...sometimes commercial solutions are perhaps more appropriate. (Though commercial solutions don't let you colour things with crayons)
In the spirit of making things from paper (including an ATC for a swap. I think I hate ATCs a little, but this was the first one I've done so now at least I know better) I made a postcard.
It's not a ...bad? postcard? But I think I'm not cut out for scrapbooking or similar things. I suppose it's just as well, the fewer craft supplies I'm addicted to buying, the better.
A little bit of gloating to end this now:
THAT'S RIGHT. I ORGANISED MY YARN, MOTHERFUCKERS! IT IS NO LONGER IN A BUCKET OF TANGLE.
