Progress!

As I said yesterday, I've got to produce as much inventory as possible for a quickly upcoming craft fair. So here's what I accomplished today. I cut all felt/fabric pieces for three more sets of Pixie Sticks. Tomorrow, I hope to sew them all together. I also bought a TON of scrapbook papers to use on the frames I'll be making. There are so many gorgeous papers out there! As much as I'd love to use all vintage papers, I just don't have enough, and even if I did, I'd probably want to save them all for myself instead of selling them!!

I've gotten lots of interest for the photoframes from yesterday's post! For all those who are interested in purchasing one, here's what I'll do. Let me bang out as many as I can for this art fair. I'll post photos of what I make. Anything that doesn't sell, I'll post again, and if the one you liked isn't there, let me know and I can make a duplicate. I'll do the same for the Pixie Sticks. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to be selling everything for. I'm thinking $30-$35 for the frames, but I'll have to kind of go through the materials used, etc. and make sure that still sounds right. What do you all think? How much should I charge? And here's another question. What sizes are good? The ones I made previously were for 4x6 photos, but I was thinking of also doing some for 3x3 photos (obviously a photo would need to be trimmed to that size). I used to manage a custom frame shop, and square formats seem to be popular.

Okay, that's all- Jason just got home and Riley's taking a nap, so maybe I'll try to go get a jumpstart on the sewing!

How wonderful to see 'in progress' photos. You look like you are super organized. I think $20-30 for the sticks and $30-40 for the frames sounds good. Your personal touch (cards etc.) make every purchase so special. Best of luck...

I can't believe you can get so much accomplished with a little baby at home. How do you do it?
