November Means Craft Fairs For Me

   I love seeing November come because that's when I go to the local craft fairs & sell my crafts that I have worked so long and hard on through the prior year. I usually share this passion with my oldest Sister who also loves to craft & she makes beautiful items. Our interest in crafts are different , though she does sew and does a great job at it too. Seamstress work has been my field for 33 years now, it's what I enjoy doing for extra income as well as hand paint. And for the craft fairs I begin very early in the year hand painting my items which takes a lot of time to finish.
  We just finished up one of our craft fairs and I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a bigger crowd that showed up , which I think was due to poor advertisement and lack of parking. A lesson I learned is not to do a 1st time craft fair and to wait to see how they did then possible enter my items in the next years set up.
But, on a better note I did enjoy the day spent with my sister who I think the world of and meeting other crafters who all have such different fields of crafting ideas.
  I thought I would share with my readers some of our craft fair item photo's.  I love hand painting onto any item, in different themes, and my old hand painted windows were a big sale. I could of taken more & better photo's but got caught up in the fun of it all and never snapped as many shots as I should have.
  Hope you enjoy them, and feel free to comment on them or share your craft ideas with me because I love knowing about crafts and how they are used or with what craft company products you use.
   Happy Holidays!
