My first fall craft show is taking place this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. So I've been creating up a storm so I'll have new merchandise for shoppers. And with the holidays just around the corner, I've been stocking my "Etsy shelves" as well.
Yeti tumblers and cozies are all the rage right now. And the knock-off brands are just as great as the expensive models. I've been using the Ozark Trail brand and have personally tested both items and LOVE them! I have several designs already in my shop and will be taking premade versions to shows with me. And as always, I can take custom orders on these as well.
The cozies are just as great. For someone like me who takes their sweet time drinking a beverage from a can, it's nice to have the last drink just as cold as the first!
Lazy Susans are another item I've recently added to my shop. I made this first design for some friends of ours that got married. And decided to make some others with fun designs. I'll be debuting these this weekend as well.
I've really been having a lot of fun with these new signs. Paint isn't usually something I enjoy working with since it can be a mess and I usually spray paint things, so I have to rely on the weather. These new upcycled signs are made from hardwood flooring. And I used acrylic paints, so the cleanup is no trouble at all!
I haven't decided if I'll be adding these to my Etsy shop or just taking them to shows. For now, I have a limited supply of flooring, so I hate to add them to my shop if I don't get more flooring. And each piece is different in length, color, etc. so I'd have to photograph each sign. (I usually like items where I can photograph once and keep relisting.) I'll see how well they go over at my fall shows and may start adding them in November. What do you think?
What have you been working on lately?
