Festooning Things with Ribbons, or What I've Been Up To

I'm sure you've noticed my sparser-than-usual blog posts this past week. Tis the season for holiday shows and holiday show preparation, both of which have been keeping me very busy. I have a few moments of respite today, so I thought I'd share some of the things I've been up to since I last posted.

On Friday I dropped my goodies off at Craftland for their holiday shop. I got to peek at some of the pretty things in their year-round store - awesome stuff. They do a really good job of curating a unique and high-quality shop.

Saturday, I was a vendor at a church bazaar organized by some of my best friends. Not my usual venue, but it was a lot of fun to spend time with them and chat. And the booth fee was much cheaper than going out for dinner and drinks!

Sunday we had dinner guests and I took a very welcome break from work!

Since then I've been pretty much full-out on preparations for the Foundry Show. Packaging prints, labeling with prices, deciding on my booth layout... I'm offering something new this year - stationery sets of blank notecards. I love, love, love how the packaging looks. Cute, colorful, with a hint of elegance. The best part - all of those spools of festive fabric ribbon were on sale.


I'd best get back to it - I've got more packaging to do (it can seem endless at this time of year), a notecard order to place, and calendars to put together. Luckily, most of those tasks go very well with a mug of tea and a good movie.

See you later today for Hump Day Happiness!
