Valentine's Day Show!

Okay, so maybe not a 100% Valentine's day show, but I have been putting a lot of time into creating things for Valentine's day to sell at:

I am currently working on some hearts made from baker's twine.  I plan on making a couple of heart garlands with it too.

So come on down to the show or find me in the other places I sell to get some wonderfully handcrafted Valentine's day decor for yourself and your home!

I have been crocheting bracelets for a long time, but they have never been widely featured in my Etsy shop.  Almost all the bracelets I make are one of a kind.  They are usually made with small amounts of yarn that I have for one reason or another, and nearly all of them have vintage or "found" buttons that are in limited supply.  When I make a bracelet, I get the fun of not only choosing the yarn, but also the design that will best fit the yarn, and best all a button to go with.  I have a pretty sizable button collection (but I am always looking for more!) and one of my favorite things is to dig through my stash looking for the perfect one.

When I do shows, my bracelets are one of my most popular items.  They are priced to sell, and are colorful and catch the eye.  It's also a big part of the reason that I have not felt the need to spend the money to list them on Etsy.  Why put the time, money and effort into posting a fast selling one of a kind item?

Well, it's a slow time for shows right now, and I am out of work with an injury, so I decided to go for it!  It's definitely paid off, as I have already sold one of my favorites.  Which only leaves 6 for sale currently, but I am doing another photo session today, so there should be more in the next week.  Feel free to check out the current selection here, and check back for new additions.  If you want one of these:

You better act fast!

Your New Favorite Hat™

I have had a number of questions regarding the origins of the New Favorite Hat™.  How did it get it's name?   How do you know it will be my new favorite hat?  What is it that makes this hat so great anyway?

When I first set out to make a hat, I spent a lot of time pouring over patterns.  I tried a handful of patterns, learning the mechanics of making a hat.  After I understood the basics, I wrote my own pattern based off of what I learned.  That is (nearly) the same pattern I use today, close to a decade later.

Over the years I have used a variety of yarns to crochet hats.  The special thing about the New Favorite Hat, is the blend of wool and acrylic yarns that makes it so wind and water resistant.  It keeps out the cold and keeps you warm!

Your New Favorite Hat will mold to your head after wearing it.  I create the New Favorite Hat using a very tight stitch, it will hold it's shape for years.

This special blend of fibers is machine washable and dryer safe and so easy to care for.  Your New Favorite Hat will always come out of the dryer ready to fit your head again and again.

Lastly, the name New Favorite Hat came from so many customers coming back to tell me how much they love theirs.  How it is their New Favorite Hat.  How could I call it anything else?

You can find a nice selection of your  New Favorite Hat here:

Show Season Has Started!

I have been so busy getting ready for the round of shows that I have coming up that I forgot to post about them!  I had a fantastic day today at  The 5th Annual Handmade NW, OHSU Have A Heart For Mom Bazaar 2012! I know that it has already passed, but I want to link you to it so you can see what a great show they put on.  It's great when you can go out to sell your crafty goods, meet new people, and do some good all at the same time.

Up next is one of my favorite shows:

You can find me at the Hip Happening this Saturday May 5th!  I always have a great time at this show and I hope you will stop by and take a look around at the many talented artists and crafters that make this show great.  Perfect timing for Mother's day and since it should be lovely on Saturday, a walk down antique row could make a great day of it!

Later this month is an exciting new show called Stumptown Sweethearts.  I will post a little more on that later.

Hair Pin Happiness

I am so very excited about the recent success of my hair pins!  The reception has been great and I am so happy to keep them evolving and the line growing.  The number of available colors has more than tripled in the last month or so, and the addition of feathers is a whole new level of excitement.   I feel like a hair pin machine these days!

I am really excited about bring feathers into the mix, and am happy to say that they are doing quite well.  These two pieces have already sold:

Don't worry, there are many more to come.

Right now I am not listing many new pieces in my Etsy shop. If you would like to see what is new and for sale, the best place to look is my Facebook page.  It is less time consuming to post pictures there, and any questions about the pieces can be easily and quickly answered in the photo comment section.

I hope you stop by and take a look at what's new!
