All my life, I have been 'crafty' thanks to my mom. She was so creative. She is the one who taught me how to sew and got me interested in baking. I always had a pencil or paintbrush close by. After I got married, I remember when mom took a tole painting class. She was so excited about it. It was the beginning of us doing craft shows together.
After mom passed away in 1996, I lost interest in doing a whole lot of crafting. I would still do a few projects but the shows stopped totally.
When Jaygen a.k.a. 'Monkey Face' was born I was inspired to get back into crafting. I had a reason and desire to start using the embroidery machine my DH had gotten me for Valentine's Day in 2007. I started making baby burps, bibs and a few blankets. I was inspired to try my hand at selling again at the local Farmer's Market along with selling some baked goods too. I didn't get rich but it did give me a little extra spending money.
Once our financial/house troubles started I lost my desire again. I couldn't get motivated to do anything. Now that things seem to have settled down a little, I have been playing with the idea of trying to sell some of my crafts again. Here are a few of the baby burps I did.
'Burrp Whyy Per'... This one was a big seller. Everyone seemed to like it.
'Even A Lady Has To Burp'... this one was one of my favorites.
'I Coo & Poo'... I love the little duck on this one.
'Spit Crew'... this was another big seller especially with the race fans.
Yesterday I went out to the storage unit and dug out all of my fabric and the baby stuff I use to sell at the Farmer's Market. I am going to try and set up a selling blog. Now I am trying to decide if I should do one for just baby stuff or if I can do one for all my stuff. I would also like to try and sell some of my other crafts too. Any suggestions? I know I'm asking for help again but I trust you gals and respect your suggestions.
Well, I guess I better get moving. We're having a special service today at church and I'm still not dressed. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and that your blessed with some cool weather.
