Once a month I host a craft night for a group of girls at my house. Last night, our project was making over a pair of shoes (see the awesome tutorial at Grosgrain). Everyone's shoes turned out just adorable. Here are mine - aren't they so stinking cute? I think my couch is destined to have pillows out of this fabric.
- Have snacks around. These shoes took about 3 hours and everyone was getting HUNGRY.
- Have plenty of scissors and glue guns. Some of the time was spent waiting for tools.
- Crank up the air conditioning!
On the business front, I made up a new style of tutu the other night. I'm selling at my first craft show in September, so I'm trying to nail down a few styles to make in multiple sizes. I know how crazy little girls are about princesses, so I was going for the princess vibe on this one. I'll bribe Bridget to model it so I can get some pictures up.
Handmade Marketplace is still hanging out on the end table, unread, and I've made zero progress on my business plan. I think I'll have a little extra time today so I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get to readin'. I also starting reading the biz ladies series on design*sponge. It's so helpful and I definitely recommend checking out (not just the series, but the whole site - it's AWESOME). It's crazy how many great creative blogs are out there - I have to stop subscribing to blogs or my Google Reader is going to explode.
