Wholesale Crafts

I recieved this email today!

"Congratulations! Your application for has been reviewed and accepted by the jury! Your work has ALSO been accepted into the American Craft Retailers Expo (ACRE), June 5-7, 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center."

I don't have plans to do the ACRE show next June, but it sure is nice to be juried in! I'll be working this weekend to get some images up on the web site and hoping for orders to carry me through the fall!

Bead Fest

Bead Fest Philadelphia was held this past weekend and I went to setup the ISGB booth. Of course Mia woke up with a bad cold Friday morning so I couldn't stay, but there were volunteers set up to watch the booth. Saturday I went back and shopped for a little while and picked up a few things. I needed some need chain nose pliers since I had worn mine out. I also picked up a plastic mallet because I'm stamping words and designs into metal and needed the mallet to reshape the metal after stamping. I'm going to try to work with Resin so I picked up some ICE resin and can't wait to try it!

The show seemed really busy with lots of great vendors and buyers. I had signed up for a class, but it was cancelled so I'll hope to sign up for one next time.

Slowing getting back

It's hard to believe that my daughter is now 2.5 years old! It's been a struggle to balance my time and I've had to put my blog on hold, but now I'm back! I have submitted an application to sell on and have also started work on an shop. Stay tuned as I hope to have some things for sale in September 2009.
