Altered Cosmetic Bags and Pencil Cases

Hi!  Back again to share more craft fair items... Susan and I shared a booth a few weeks ago at the Manono Marketplace craft fair.  It was the first time they hosted a craft fair at that location, so we got a good deal on the booth. 

Wanted to test the waters on some new items this year, so I altered a bunch of cosmetic bags and zippered pencil cases this year.  Got me some shabbies and trims and went to town decorating them...

I was surprised how well these sold!  Need to stock up on more for my fair next week!

Here We Go Again!

Did ya miss me?  It's been quite awhile since I last posted, but I have a good excuse!  It's craft fair season again, so I've taken a small break from Sister Stamps to work on some stuff for my upcoming craft fair on December 7th (at my house).  If you would like more information on the location, please email me at and I will send you a flyer.

Just wanted to share some of the projects I've been working on.  Every year I make a lot of calenders for the new year.  I try to change them up a bit because 1) I figure shopper don't want to buy the same calenders each year and 2)  I get bored easily.  

I've been making coaster calenders for a few years now, but this year I decided to try something new... Animal coasters!  I've been inspired by the kawaii style and decided to try making some kawaii animal coaster calenders this year.  Here's some pandas.. my favorite!

And penguins...

Can't forget the doggies...

Made a few bunnies and Hello Kittys...

And a polar bear and brown bear.

These were really fun to make!  Wish I had more time to figure out other kinds of kawaii animals to make!

There will be 5 craft booths this year with lots of paper crafts, beaded jewelry, holiday items, and even caramel apples!  Please stop by and say hi!
