I am excited about so many things on so many levels. It is proving to be a busy month, and some of my initial intentions have yet to pan out. I wanted to have my first pattern up, my give away ready, their Halloween costumes complete (Saturday is our twin group‘s annual Halloween party, anticipating 40 sets of twins. Madness)…and none of these things are ready yet. But there are a few things that did come to be complete.
This weekend there is a great craft fair called the Village Venture in Claremont. I have attended for years and a good friend has always had a booth where she sold the coolest purses, vintage inspired with a bit of cheekiness imparted by saucy appliques. Well, this year she has struggled to find the time to make her purses and we decided I would make a few things to put in her booth, see if I could generate a few sales and fill a few open spots.
So I made a some bags and I like the end result, bright and fun and vivid. A few months ago I made myself two bags and I use them heavily, they fit on the wrist and carry just enough to make them useful.
There is another project that I will be selling tomorrow, here is a closer look.
I want to see how it goes over on the weekend, whether it is well-received. It is a pattern that came to me due to many long stroller walks, many fumbling moments and a few spilled bottles/sippy cups. I will say more later...but crossing my fingers and hoping it is appreciated.
I am linking this post to the Finished Friday posts. I came across this blog due to twin mamahood but was happy to find another crafty lady. I really love how the world of motherhood and crafting intersects so often on blogs. If you have some finished items go post them over at LitandLaundry on Fridays. it is so neat to meet other crafters through this medium.
Hope your Friday brings some completion to your week, a feeling of accomplishment, and a little something to share. Mine is bringing my 33rd birthday tomorrow. I have to say it again...the decade of the thirties is proving to be the best years ever. So grounded, so full, so fun. Bring it on, 33!
