What's next?

Sue and I are looking ahead! We are going to a few art/craft fairs this weekend to see the potential for next year. Our goal in 2012 is to get to one fair minimum. Now with working full time, that is about all that we can manage -- we think! In any case, I'm excited to see what the future holds for us.

Our recent experience gave lots of food for thought as to our goods, our creating process and our production itself.

What does it all mean? No idea! but it is forward motion and positive energy. My favorite path to follow.

Craft Fair #3 -The results

Yesterday we had a great time. Everyone was fantastic and while business was slower than anticipated, we talked to many of you about specific items you would like to have made in the coming months. We will be in touch soon. A special thank you to our family and friends that stopped by. Lisa thanks for taking a things next year for sure!

Sue and I commented that no matter what happens at these fairs, it the fun of sharing our passions that we enjoy the most and the creative process to get there!

Until the next one...all our best...

Craft Fair #3

Later this month, we are participating in the craft fair (where I work) for the third time. This time with a renewed vigor! They are publicizing it to more people in the area than just the building tenants. It will be in the lower level of One Rotary Center (1560 Sherman Ave Evanston IL) fromj 9-3pm on 18 November.

We are both really excited about it and cannot wait to show off everything we've made this year. Sue has made some truly outstanding clutches that I am sure will be extremely popular. I've been busy making journals, including a new "large" journal.

So the focus is now getting ready for it (and has been for the past few weeks)!

Let the holiday shopping begin...

Photography does make a world of difference!

Thanks to my sister, we have new photos of a very professional caliber of our products. An up and coming photographer (Christi) in the Quad Cities works for my sister currently and we are in awe of her work! So without further ado...Here are the photos!
