Sewing my heart out for my first show!

I am frantically sewing to make sure I have enough for my first juried craft show.  I like saying "juried" so you don't get this picture in your mind of crocheted afghans and popsicle stick ornaments.  Of course, I love crocheted afghans as much as the next girl, but it makes me feel great that there was an application process and I actually got in.  Is that sad?

I've got a ton of these goodie bags that are perfect for small gifts or gift cards.  Time to make some cuddly baby blankets.

Etsy Shop Update & My First Juried Show!

I can't believe I haven't done a post about this yet!  When I ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler back in April, I bought a headband at the expo there.  I've never been able to find one that actually STAYED in my hair AND held my hair back.  This one did.  But I paid $15 and I realized that I could easily sew them myself and better yet, I could use vintage ribbon.  Yahtzee!

Here are what they look like.  You can find them in my Etsy Shop here.

Here's the best part!  They will be featured at my FIRST CRAFT JURIED CRAFT SHOW!  It's Saturday, November 16, 2013, at St. Peter Claver Church in West Hartford, CT.  Much, much more to come on that.

I also started a running blog, which you can find at The Reticent Runner.  I'd love to see you there!
