I have lots of new Halloween treats, and will be starting to work soon on Christmas items for the November and December shows.  I hope to see you at one of the shows if you’re in the area!  (I’ll update the list if new shows are added.)

North Liberty Presbyterian Church Harvest Festival

The Harvest Festival is tomorrow!  We’ll be open for business from 9 AM to 3 PM.  We have handmade crafts from a variety of vendors, food (including homemade Amish donuts), a bake sale table, hay rides, live Praise & Worship music from 11 AM to 1 PM, and lots of crafts and activities for kids.

It’s been a lot to put together in only a month’s time, but we’re pretty excited.  All proceeds from table reservations, food sales, and baked good sales will go towards helping our Mission Team get back to Roswell, NM next summer to work with the local Hispanic ministry, Boys & Girls Club, food kitchens, and more.

I’ll have a space with fall and Christmas items for sale…jewelry, cards, stocking stuffers, and treats.  In addition, we have crafters of nightlights, jewelry, candles, baby quilts, teacher gifts, and we’ll joined by representatives of the Ugandan Water Project with items made by the women of Uganda.

Stop by if you’re in the area!  I’ll post some photos next week.

Christmas is Coming!

I’ve been working on a lot of new merchandise for craft shows, my Etsy shop, and the Christmas Tree Farm.  I have my first Christmas Show coming up in another week and I’m scrambling to stitch and stamp fast enough to keep up with all of the ideas running through my head!

Here’s an update on upcoming shows for those of you who are in the area:

  • Saturday, November 2 – Harrisville VFD Community Christmas Bazaar (at the Fire Department) (9AM – 2 PM)
  • Saturday, November 16 – North Liberty Presbyterian Church Harvest Festival (9AM – 3 PM)
    (We’re still looking for a few more crafters for this show at North Liberty…if you’re interested, email me and I’ll send you a form!)
  • Saturday, November 23 – Winter Vendor/Craft Show, Slippery Rock Township Building (9AM – 1PM)
  • Saturday, December 7 – Grove City Women’s Club Christmas Craft Show, Grove City Middle School (9AM – 2PM)

I hope to see you there!

Now, on to the new stuff…coffee cozies, felt hair clips, owl Hershey bars, and so much more.  Some things, like the three coffee cozies below and the owl Hershey bars are available now in my Etsy shop…others will be available at shows and will be listed in my Etsy shop later (as spare time allows).  Enjoy!

New Treasuries and a Craft Show

I have two new Etsy treasuries to share, but first I wanted to let everyone know that I will be at the Scott Township Volunteer Fire Department’s Spring Craft Show in Harlansburg tomorrow (April 13th) from 10 AM – 3 PM.  This is one of the rare shows in our area to feature ONLY hand-crafted items, and there is always a ton of delicious homemade foods available from the kitchen.  I hope to see you there!

Now, onto the treasuries!  I haven’t created as many treasuries this year as I had been in the past.  I’m hoping to get back to my regular 2-a-week schedule soon.  In the meantime, here are the most recent collections.  Enjoy!

This Week’s Treasuries and a Christmas Open House…

I have two treasuries this week with a Christmas theme.  I hope you enjoy them!

Tomorrow I will be at Rodgers Pine Hill Farm near Harlansburg for their annual Christmas Open House from 10-5.  Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there for photos from 10-1, and there will be lots of free cookies and cocoa in the shop.  The shop is filled with handmade goodies from me and several other crafters, plus you can pick out your tree while you are there.  I’ll post photos next week- it’s always a great start to the Christmas season!

This Week’s Treasuries (and a craft show)…

No special themes for this week’s treasuries, just some pretty items I found while browsing Etsy.  My mind has been occupied with crafting during any free time…prepping for shows and filling Etsy orders.  I will have a table at the Slippery Rock Volunteer Fire Department’s Holiday Bazaar tomorrow (11/10) from 9 AM until 3 PM.  Stop by if you’re in the area!  I will mainly have Christmas merchandise, with a few fall items still in the mix.  I have some new earrings to add to the Etsy shop this week, and a few cards too – I’ll post photos here once the listings are active.  Enjoy the treasuries!
