Big order

This past week, I have been kept pretty busy by a large custom order for bracelets. One of the managers where I work for the day job ordered a bunch of items, and will most likely be getting me some more orders from others, so I am excited!

Here is a picture of just some of the bracelets I have made this week, only some of which were part of that order. (The hair clip wasn't part of the order, either)

I have another craft fair coming up this weekend, too, so the extra items I made will be good to add to my inventory.

Barrettes and needle minders!

I have been busy this past week making scale flower barrettes! I have a craft fair coming up this weekend, so I wanted to have a good amount to have for sale. The only downside is that I only have 4 scale colors of the right size in stock at the moment, so I am limited on the variety right now.
Here are the ones that I have done so far:

On the barrettes with the mirror scales, I put the flower with the concave side down toward the barrette. For the others, it was upward more like a flower would be. I know it is a little hard to see the mirrored scale barrettes, but I wanted to see which version everyone prefers.

For my kickstarter, I have decided on a couple smaller add-on items, but I still haven't decided what to have as an additional reward. I have that craft fair coming up in this weekend, so I'll go through all my stuff then, and see what I can find that will be good for the kickstarter.
I want to have the scale barrettes as add-ons, as well as these keychains that I started making.

I have 3.5 craft fairs coming up in the next couple months, so far. Those will certainly keep me busy! (The .5 is actually a booth that my husband may or may not have for his branded paintball stuff at a paintball tournament. If he gets a booth, I get to man it while he goes off to enjoy the tournament).

And last for this post, I have some new needle minders for my Etsy shop!
