I'll be posting two new Candle Embellishments and a new large frame (using that cool belt buckle I posted about awhile back) in my Etsy shop over the next couple days. Then I'll be taking a little break to enjoy some fun in the sun. I'm sure I'll have some beach-inspired crafts soon!

I'm really thinking about trying to sell some of my creations at a local craft show that is held once a month. Has anyone done this or have any tips for me? If I decide to do it, I'll have to get busy making more samples to fill my booth! The prospect of being out a lot of money (booth rental, supply cost, etc.) is a little daunting, but I suppose it will be worth it if I'm able to get some regular business....

Once again, the possibilities are endless with this! I'm working on a brown and gold cross version now which will be complete after one more quick trip to Michael's! I just posted this on Etsy and hope it sells! So go get those old belts you've been meaning to get rid of and start "embellishing" your candles!

She also crocheted these washcloths for me in my two favorite colors, purple and gold! She says these are great to use in the kitchen. I know a lot of fellow Etsy sellers make these as well. I can't wait to try them out!
Here is one of my favorite items she makes, it's a skirt that she hand-embroiders with beautiful brightly colored flowers:

So I've decided to switch gears and work on a new personalized tin. Here's how the antique ceiling tiles start out before:
And here's what the finished product looks like after:
I added the little rhinestones at the last minute and really think it adds the perfect finishing touch. The possibilities are endless with this one! Hang it in your little girl's room, on your front door, in the kitchen.....I can personalize it and coordinate it to any decor! I just added it to my Etsy shop so come take a look!

It's actually quite large because it was a belt buckle on a lovely aqua polyester dress circa 1960. I think I will use it for my first 8x10 frame.....
Stay tuned for new items in my Etsy store next week. I'm working on my first custom order and some new personalized antique tins.
