Hey folks, so I realize it's been nearly a month since I've posted stuff here, and as usual it's because I've been super busy with a ton of stuff. First up was the Yule Ball up in Cleveland last weekend! I was making a bunch of inventory to take to that, and it was super successful and also totally awesome! Sadly my mom, who is usually my table partner, couldn't attend because she was ill, which was a total bummer, but we've already agreed that we'd like to have a table again next year!
Here's my booth with half of my stuff gone because I sold quite a bit through the evening! I decided to go steam wizard, and of course wore my house colors (Badger Pride!). It was an absolutely fantastic evening and I was excited to see some friends of mine who I've not seen in quite some time. I also was stationed next to the incredibly handy and talented Peter Baum, who brought some fantastic spun wands and who was a big hit in their Diagon Alley area. The other awesome part was that I got to meet these guys, since they had their main stage in the hall where we were set up.
The Eeyloops Owl Emporium presentation was by far the highlight of the evening! They also had lots of fun decor set up; even though I didn't get to spend much time away from my table, I definitely appreciated the ambiance and attention to detail.
Now that the event is over, I've been busting my ass getting all of the Christmas orders I've been getting put together and shipped out. The good news is that I am doing lots of good business, the bad news is I haven't had time to finish any of my Christmas gift projects for my family. Hopefully when we hit the week before Xmas things will slow down because it will be past the point where I can get stuff to people by the 25th, but who knows. I also have a bunch of commissions I need to have finished by certain times in January, so I'm definitely going to continue to be busy through the holiday season and into the new year.
On the bright side, I've been working on one such commission and it's starting to look pretty awesome! Here's my current progress on Crescent Rose, which I'll be making again later next year for my husband, though this one is going to someone else :-)
I'm super stoked for this project, so you can be sure I'll be posting more photos on Twitter as I keep working, and more on here as things come together. Well, that's all for today, hope everyone is staying warm, and has a great holiday!
