A Crafty Turn of Events

At the office: I had to turn in my computer to IT this morning so that it could get upgraded to Windows  7 and Office 2010.  The IT guy joked with me when he handed me the loaner computer that I was going to use for today.  He laughs and goes, "Oh, Danny must not like you."  (He was kidding) The loaner was kinda a clunker, but I was able to get on the internet and do email, so surprisingly it didn't pose any problems for me.

2012 Craft Shows: I wasn't planning to do any craft shows this year, but then today, I signed up to do two!  An Etsy person contacted me personally to do one and since it was close by, I figured "Meh, what the heck."  Then, on a whim, I contacted another craft show organizer to see if her church was doing one this year (even though they didn't last year for construction reasons), and she was just about to send out the information.  Whew, great timing!  My inventory isn't looking so good, but fortunately I have some time to fix that before the one on October 6.  The other one is on December 1, so there's a nice break in between!  Maybe I can make some money in craft shows this year after all. :)

Potential Buyer?: Another surprising thing was that I have a person interested in the clear stamp lot that I have up for sale.     I am hoping we can meet up sometime this weekend to do the switch-a-roo.  An extra $30 would be nice.  The idea was to sell crafty things that I don't use so that I can buy crafty things that I want to and will use.  Plus, the lady will get 13 stamp sets for a lower price.  Everybody wins!

Card: I was determined to make a card tonight, but it had to be something that wasn't too complicated. I remembered that I had some punch-outs leftover from a card class that I taught earlier this year.  Armed with my glue pen, I used it to adhere glue some of the punch-outs to the patterned paper.  Easy peasy!

Hi Tina! I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your set up at the craft fairs. Good luck with both of them. Glad to hear you have a buyer for your lot of clear stamps. I need to sell, too, to get money for more stuff. LOL.
