update on 2 craft shows

mariendNovember 1, 2008

Did post on KT earlier, but just went to another craft show. Nothing special this year, but I noticed a couple of things. Some people seem to be in a hurry and just taking wooden shapes and just painting them and some or real cute, and several took spring type forms and just wrapped glitter rope/ribbon etc and stuck a head on, painted it. To me it looked like hurry up, I have to do something etc.

The one thing new was so simple. Took a two sided potholder (the kind you put your hand inside), sewed it up to where the cloth stops, put a pad (long) on one side and pencil on the other. But they wanted almost 8.00 for them but I think the potholders are not cheap. The sewing line was just far enough in to hold the pencil with more room for the pad of paper.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thanks for the report! I see lotys of people buying things from Oriental Express - adding a dab of paint and calling it hand crafted... Sad... The other item sounds interesting!
