Hunk Pillow Cases

SEW much going on since Thanksgiving weekend. We had a great time with family over the holiday and then the following week was the mad rush to get ready for the Christmas Stroll that the Graham family participated in. Being my 1st event and being involved on this level there was excitement and anxiety out the wazooooooo! Working the booth was the most fun, meeting people and hearing their comments about the goods made by our family members. The big items that sold at this show where Hunk Holder's (pot holders of shirtless men - see Holly's blog for photo on my friend & family list), Hunk Pillow Cases pic attached and little girl hair bows! What a combination right! Needless to say we sold of out of Hunk Holder's & Pillow cases and even took some special orders for more. There where so many other handmade items that where awesome so we are creatively looking for ways to market them as they will be hits when we figure out this key.

Blud Plaid - Handcrafts Unlimited Shop

While working the craft show we had the opportunity to stroll thru downtown Georgetown square, who knew all the finds between shops and food!! SEW my new favorite store is Handcrafts Unlimited on 8th. It's a store where all items are made by artists 50 years of age or older and they receive 80% of the profits! I have found some great deals there like Santan's new winter blue plaid jacket. Once Christmas is over I can't wait to attempt to make more of these, and some for the big kids too!! My cuz Holly sent me a free pattern she found online that looks very similar to this. Will post when I get around to it.
