I'm back!

I know, I haven't posted in the longest time, but I am back, now. I promise!

Happy news! I passed my test that I have been studying for! Yay! I'm going to take a few weeks off to allow my brain to recover before I start working toward the next certification for my day job.

Happier news! I have my magnet mojo back! I'm so excited about that!
The high school that my husband attended is having a big festival that includes a car show, fun run, carnival, auction, and craft fair. I have been toying with the idea of getting a table at a craft fair just to try it out, and this one is perfect! My husband is part of the committee that is planning the whole thing, so I am definitely going to attend anyway.
So, I have been coming up with more magnet ideas the past couple days. I have come up with a pattern for one of the school logo letters, and I have plans to (try to) make a cross stitch pattern for my iphone cases for the school mascot. I want to donate a stitched iphone case for the auction, if I can, too.
So, the next couple months, I have the feeling that I will be making a lot of magnets and other items for stocking my craft fair booth. I've never done this before, so I am really stoked! For those craft fair veterans out there, any advice for a newbie?

And, last, I have that picture of the fabric I bought recently for my Sleepy Hollow project. The color is called "Haunted". How awesome is that?
The coloring doesn't translate as well as I would like through the pictures, but let me assure you that it is amazing!

  2. I kept buying the Haunted Cashel thinking I was getting the wrong material because it looks nothing like the purplish colors I was expecting from the pattern picture...mine has a lot more green in it. I finally gave up after emailing the company about it to verify that green is indeed the dominant. Just goes to show you can't trust the pattern picture!

    1. Yes, the purple is much more subtle than I was expecting, as well. However, I still love the fabric, and I'm sure it will be fabulous!

  4. Gorgeous fabric. Good luck at your craft sale. My mother has her own business for 17 years. My only suggestion is have a lot of variety. That way hopefully there is something to catch different people's taste.

  5. Lovely fabric (it shows up very gray and even if that's not "correct" the dye pattern looks excellent!) and good luck with the fair! It'll be a fun experience I'm sure. :D
