Handmade Crafts and Unsolicited Advice

Final Check-in! October 1, 2009

Because the Scrabble Tile pendants I make are covered in coat of resin, I have to pour my last batch basically 48 hours before the start time of the upcoming fair to allow for adequate drying time. I just wrapped up pouring my last batch of resin on pendants and rings and some special Halloween themed pendants for this fall’s INDIEana Handicraft Exchange ( Final count of jewelry coming to the fair with me Friday is 316 pendants, 50 rings, and about a dozen special Halloween themed pendants made with old cameos and skulls, ghosts, and bats! WOW! Tomorrow I will be spending the evening doing some other prepping such as display work, bagging pendants, and packing everything up and getting ready for Friday!

In other news, I have completed my application for the Handmade Arcade which is taking place on Dec. 12 in Pittsburg ( This is the first out-of-state fair I have applied for, but it’s not going to be my last. It is a juried fair, so cross your fingers with me that I get accepted! If all goes well this weekend at the Handicraft Exchange, I will be applying on Sunday for the Renegade Holiday Fair in Chicago on Dec. 5 and 6th.  I’m very excited and looking forward to the opportunities to take Sunday Afternoon Housewife on the road.

Soon I will be adding a “Craft Fairs” page so you can check out everywhere I’m going to be. Expect to see me all over this place in the coming year. I am declaring my intent to make a living by crafting. Wish me luck!
