My Creative Space




As many of you know I'm in the middle of craft fair preparations. There's so much to do that some days I don't know where to start! Luckily I can take some of my Etsy inventory to the fair, it makes it a bit easier. I don't need to make the whole load of new purses but can concentrate on other things. Such as making greeting card sets to accompany my other items. These envelopes you see above are part of bigger lot I made of interior magazines. I even added hand stamped stickers to close the envelope. Cuteness! This was a fun idea, not probably the most profitable project ever but once in a while I definitely need this creative craziness.

I'm going to make a big bunch of stud earrings for the fair. Of course they will need some packing material too. That's how I came up with these small kraft paper pouches. I had a pile of big paper bags so I cut one in four equally sized pieces and sew their open seams with my sewing machine. Now I have about 80 pieces ready, that is surely more than enough!

Those paper bags are so great! I'm looking for paper bags myself to put my items in on this weekends fair. Seems like most of the people on craft fairs I've met face to face before never have bags, which really is necessary. This is so smart and I loooooove the machine sewing on it.
