Craft's the season

DSC_5288, originally uploaded by alecart.

Yesterday was my 1st show for the season. I have to say the best part about doing a show has to be the 4 hours of sitting. Shows have become a welcome "break" in my meeting new people, making some money.

no nuts free of nuts

no nuts free of nuts, originally uploaded by alecart.

I've made some tags for my boys lunches. Our youngest has 2 classmates that have serious nut allergies. His teacher recommend putting a note on his lunch to let him know if he had nuts in his lunch or not. So,I had to take the note one step further...Please feel free to down-load the images and use them if you'd like. If for some reason you're having troubles with the file, drop me a note. I'll be happy to send the files.
I printed the pages, cut them out, laminated them and attached them to the handle on the lunch bag.

Time for a change

I've been thinking of ways to bring more life to my shop. My last batch of photos looked as if I had scanned them...ugh! I did a little reading, never forget all the great tips you can find on Etsy.

Shawl pin....what better way to show the product off, the way in which it's intended to be used. However, I welcome any ideas of how you may use the "Shawl Stick".

Knitter's set! I never seem to have enough sets listed. They sell pretty quickly.
What a perfect way to display....on a book. I used a dictionary!
Looks I like I have open to anger...may have to find a new word.

Simple...Yes! Just the way I like things. Think, I'm warming up to the new look. I'll have to play more with the photos, that is once I get the chance to make some new things.

I've gone wide!

and I'm loving it!
Funny as it sounds, Etsy has updated the website, hence stores now have wider pages.
I've started to change things around, move a few items here and there.
It's the way of the artist...always changing and evolving.
Here's a screen shot. I think I'll leave the page be for a bit.
Now I have the sudden creative urge to go make some new items. Oh, how the creative mind works. It's a wonder I get sleep.

Tye-dye day....

busy at work...oh, the colors!

Just some of the creations.

We wonder what color Aj is mixing. No worries, Aunt Megan is watching.

Not like the gloves will help. We had colors all over us.

This has to be our mom's favorite day of our summer break. She tells us every year, of how she use to Tye-Dye every summer with the neighbors. We think she like the memories of years gone past.

Here's some photos of Mom, back in the day.

Silly Campers

Sabrina takes a run through the bike trail.

Carter is getting ready for the bonfire.

Did we tell you how much AJ loves to eat?

Alek is going to play Tarzan!

We didn't go far for this trip. We camped out at our house. We sure did have fun.
