Counting down to Fair day!

Thought I'd sneak a quick post in here to catch everyone up on what's happening at the Studio. Firstly, my Studiot looks like it always does at this time of year - like a craft bomb when off! LOL Oh well. I really haven't gone crazy making things this year because I wanted to focus on some new stuff I've been doing. Since I've been paper crafting with Sure Cuts A Lot and my electric cutter for most of the year, I've had the opportunity to try out many cutting files. My favourite company for SVG files by far is SVGCuts. They have the best designs out there in my opinion and you won't believe the things you are able to create with them. This company is all around just excellent and their customer service/support is second to none. They even make videos showing you how to assemble the finished items and the value for the price can't be beat! Check them out for yourself by clicking on the button to the right. Happy Crafting!

Craft Fair season approaching!

Well, it's that time of year again - Craft Fair season! Actually, when I first started my business 16 years ago, the craft fair season started in September. I was living in Cranbrook, BC then and have moved twice since. Here in Kamloops, the first real craft fair here isn't until NOVEMBER! I'm talking Christmas shows. Not sure why it's so late in the season, it just seems really late to me and I think artisans in Kamloops and the surrounding areas are missing out on a lot of potential selling opportunities by not holding shows starting in September. Believe it or not, I used to sell a LOT of Christmas things at the September show. Look at how early the Christmas stuff hits the stores. And besides Christmas, by having shows from September until December you can also sell items for Thanksgiving and Fall in general and of course, Halloween. Perhaps it's time to start up some new shows in Kamloops. Hmmm....... For this year though, I'll be selling some new things this year. Come check out my booth (#10) at the Royal Inland Hospital Craft-a-Fair in Kamloops, BC on Sunday, November 6th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Interior Savings Centre on Lorne St.
