A Good Day at Crafternoon

Despite the widespread power outages in Columbus that are a week too long, Crafternoon on High went on with the show. Fortunately, the venue had excellent natural light and it was a nice cool day in the building.

There was a pretty good turnout and we learned what worked/what didn't in terms of product displays and packaging. We also met some great Columbus artisans in person, which is always a treat! Overall, it was a good day for a good cause.

New Glass Marble Pendants

I've been having so much fun creating glass marble magnets. New designs are coming out every day, and there's been a fairly positive response to them.

While I love making pewter pendants, I thought it might be fun to make glass marble pendants, too. And they're in the shop - 8 already - and more to come. Stop by Daisy Mae Designs to check them out and let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

Holiday Craft Show Season is Just Around the Corner

I've decided to try my hand at selling at craft shows this fall. I love attending them and I'm excited (and a little nervous/anxious). And, being new to Columbus, I had a tough time finding shows to participate in.

I've just signed up for Crafternoon on High in September. Hopefully I'll be accepted to that show - it's a great cause and seems like it'll be a great atmosphere in Worthington.

And today, I signed up for the All Saints Academy Craft Show in Columbus on November 8. I'm hoping to do one more show in October ... it should be a fun fall!

Speaking of which, I've been busy, busy, busy creating 20+ new magnet designs (releasing daily) and quite a few new pendant designs. Have a look at Daisy Mae Designs!

Yay for Daisy Chains and Scotia Made on Etsy

It was like Christmas when I opened the mailbox today. Two packages - one from Daisy Chains and the other from Scotia Made on Etsy. I love, love, love both of their shops. Daisy Chains for whimsy designs and Scotia Made for tongue-in-cheek humor combined with sassy woodland animals. Check 'em out!

I'm sad to learn today that LuckyOliver will be shutting down its stock photography site. As a contributing photographer, I appreciated what they did for photographers and loved the site's fun, tongue-in-cheek style.

Woo Hoo!
