New World Comic Con

I had a very busy, yet very awesome one-day convention this past weekend, in Oklahoma City.  It was New World Comic Con.
I was constantly busy, there was very little time to relax except near the end of the day. Of course, being this busy means it was quite profitable, as well. I had an amazing time, and  I am really getting into these conventions. I have another 3-day con next weekend. I'm going to have a blast!

Here is a picture of my table setup, with my new display in the back.Yes, I realize the table covering is crooked. I didn't check until after I had everything setup, and it was too late.

New label maker

I just bought something that I am in love with. I bought me a label maker!
I keep a lot of my ring inventory in small plastics boxes, and these labels are perfect for me to quickly put the size, material, and in some cases the color.

Here is a picture of a few of the first ones I have done.

I have a feeling that there will be many more things labelled before too long. This is so corny, and yet it is so much fun, too!

Convention season

Starting next weekend, I have 3 conventions over the next 4 weekends. I will be busy!
I have been trying to build up some inventory to stock up, not only for the conventions, but for some potential consignment sales coming up. If anything comes of those options, I will certainly post about it, but I don't want to jinx myself just yet.

Here are just some of the items that I have made recently. I also have about 2 dozen more new stretchy bracelets, too.

Catch up on inventory

Things have been crazy busy around here, let me tell you. I have done so many craft fairs and conventions this year, and I have so many more. I am loving it, though!
I'm in rebuild mode to restock my inventory.

I made a few turbine necklaces and a bracelet just last night.

I'm also prepping to make a bunch of rainbow bracelets. They are, by far, my most popular.

I was also able to FINALLY use my new display that I had a friend of mine design and make for me.
It allows me to simply fold up the two sides and not have to take off the hooks or necklaces.
Here is a picture of my booth from 2 weeks ago, with the old display on the left side. I use a garment rack and a couple pegboard panels with velcro ties. (And look, there's me!)

The new display is wood. There are 2 sections plus legs. You can see it on the right of the booth picture from last weekend.

This will save me so much time, since I won't have to setup and remove all the hooks and the merch every single time. I can also open it all the way up to have a wall of stuff, instead.
I can't wait to keep using it!
