I’m not sure why, but I always seem to bite off way more than I can chew…no matter what the situation lol! My craft supplies/blanks have been starting to arrive and when I look at it I think Holy Crapadoodle, am I going to be able to get all of that done… as well as Christmas?? That is why I am starting early. Not as early as I had planned but I am getting used to my brain injury taking over and messing up my plans!
I think I am only going to do 2 Craft sales this year…. the one my mother-in-law has every year with everything Cat themed, and another one somewhere local. This means not only making Christmas type items, but also cat related.
I picked up 12 white mugs last week to do a bunch of the Cat Themed Mugs I posted a few weeks back. I took the original 4 to my mother-in-law’s last time I was down there and she loved them and that they would sell well with that crowd. Hopefully 12 will be enough… although I could also take orders if need be… they are fairly quick to do.
I have also started to accumulate blank canvases from the dollar store so I can make a bunch of signs.
In one of my auctions, I won a box of wine glasses. I thought they would be great to either put the same designs on as the mugs or maybe some sarcastic cat sayings?
If you notice the brown glass items in that bin, I am thinking about cutting some sort of Thanksgiving/Fall design on them and just selling them locally. They are so beautiful that I think anyone would love them for their Fall decorating! Look at how nice they are! I think I paid about $4 for the set!
I got my tote bags the other day so I can embroider on them, some wooden sign blanks that I think would be cool to do custom as Monogram signs? Or even some Christmas sayings?
And some canvas wine bags. I thought I could do one for my brother-in-law who is a wine lover and put some sort of Rx: In case of emergency, pop cork on the bag and related sayings on some stemless wine glasses to make a wine lover basket.
And finally I picked up some round glass cutting boards. I want to cut mirror images to put on the bottom of them so the design isn’t on the cutting side of the board. Again, I can do some cat themed ones as well as day to day.
On top of all of that I have been accumulating tea towels, pillow cases, pot holders and the like to embroider on to add to my craft sale stock!
Wish me luck lol…. hopefully I can get it all done… and on time!
