But, through patience (OK, not patience exactly, I just got excited, bought a lot of knobs, got frustrated and then ignored the whole thing for a very long time until I finally found a more workable idea. It’s a genius business strategy that will surely take me straight to the top!), trial and error, and a fair amount of wasted supplies I think I’ve made a product that I’m satisfied with.
There are round ones and square ones – up first – square.
I thought I’d do a little tribute to the mad skills of my mom and sisters and make some using vintage measuring tape graphics. Fun for a sewing room perhaps?I grabbed some of the vintage postcard graphics I use on my trays and that dresser
People liked them!
People bought them!
I have to make more!
I’m very tired!
I got to the show and realized that I had totally, somehow, not packed the table everything was supposed to go on. Bit of a stumbling block. I was saved by the very kind people who put on Patchwork who gave me a loaner table. After overcoming that hiccup I discovered that, though I had a few Wine Charm Sets with me – I’d set the rest of them on the kitchen counter when I made a last minute dive for much needed coffee.So “sold out” is a little less impressive when one acknowledges that there were only six to begin with.
But, it was good to know that folks responded to them!
All of them will be available on Etsy shortly.
Now I just have to actually bring them (and a table) with me to the next big show: Patchwork Santa Ana!
