I've Been Feeling Creative

The holidays are right around the corner (only 117 shopping days left - LOL!) and people will soon be looking for gifts to give to their loved ones.

Not only do I want to have both my shops well stocked for the holidays, but I'm doing my first craft fair on October 30th! For any of you that have sold at a craft fair before, I'm sure you understand the anxiety I'm going through right now...
  • Will I sell anything?
  • Will I have enough stock?
  • Will people like my items?
  • What do I make?
  • How should I do my display?
And the list goes on & on!!

The good thing is, I've been feeling very creative lately. Maybe it's the new "stress free" environment I've been living in (if you can call an 18-year-old son stress free), but the ideas have just been flowing.

This past weekend I designed a series of 10 cross stitched bookmarks. I already have the first one fully stitched and am working on the 2nd one. I'd like to have at least 3 or 4 of them finished before I start listing. Stay tuned to see listings of those in my Etsy shop in about the next 2 weeks.

In addition to the bookmarks I'll be making other items, but I'm going to tease you and not tell you what those are yet!! :)

Happy Stitching!!


  1. I'm always excited to see what awesome things you have created next. Kudos!

  2. That's awesome! I've been so busy working now that school is back in that I haven't felt creative at all!
    Can't wait to see the new bookmarks!

  3. Hooray!! Exceptionally beautiful stitching and designing, Kelly :O)
