Craft Show Goodies

Knitted sunglasses cases awaiting blocking, seaming, and buttons. I need to make as many as I can this week before moving on to other merch for the craft show!

Hair Clips

I've been working away on some hair clips for the craft show. Were they on my original list of things to make? Nope. But you gotta pay attention to the inspiration gods when they come a-knocking!

Business Cards

As I mentioned previously, part of getting ready for my craft show is getting new business cards. I wanted to create an image, maybe even a new branding, that would be original and in line with both my shop name and the items I create. I spent yesterday taking some shots and editing away at them (and finally put to use a Ken doll my besties gave me for my 21st birthday):


What do you think? I really like the way these shots turned out but for the most part, they don't really suit the style of my shop. They do, however, perfectly play up my shop name (and TOTALLY feed my love of noir) so I found a way of pumping up one of the photos to make it more playful and not so, um, threatening. Results to be revealed once I order and receive my business cards.

I like some of these shots so much, though, I think I'm gonna see if I can make them into bookmarkers or something. Always thinking, this one!
