2  opinions please!!! img heavy!!! in Get Product and Website Opinions by ALI-MAE on: October 19, 2008 05:58:15 PM
i attended my first craft show this weekend and i must admit it didnt go so well! i was very discouraged after and i worked my butt off but here is what went down! my friend and i rented a booth together and she makes jewelry and i make purses, quilts and such! the whole so called "craft show" was really just jewelry and more jewelry and apparently thats what everyone wanted! i want to show you some of the purses that i had and tell me what you think i need some encouragement and reassurment to see if it was just me or not! also i never know what to price my stuff and i was wondering what you all usually would sell these type purses for? thanks for listening to me rant! i am not sure if im going to go to another one or not but it may have just been the type venue it was? i dont know anyways here are the pics!















i heard alot of people saying that all of them were cute so that made me feel good but i just dont know if i priced them to high! like i said i never know what to price my stuff! so let me know how much you think youd sell them for! thanks for all your help!

3  craft fair diplays in Completed Projects by ALI-MAE on: September 29, 2008 10:54:40 AM
hi everyone! i am recently getting ready for an upcoming craft fair in lebanon tn, so being the craftster that i am i decided i wanted some cute display so i can hang all my stuff on it instead of just piling it all on a table! my dad has a woodshop and he has tons of scrap wood laying around so i just helped myself to it Tongue. well my boyfriend actually made them but i did paint them. (something about me+staplegun = injury of some sort) but about half way through making them we decided they looked like flowers and i was even more excited!!! i call my "business" Fuzzy Bee Creations so the overall theme was PERFECT. but anyways here they are!!!!


here are all 3 of them together (the 2 smaller ones are gonna be on the table)




and this one is the taller one that is just gonna be on the ground and will display purses and stuff



yay! comments appreciated!

4  x's and o's love quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by ALI-MAE on: June 28, 2008 03:20:09 PM
Hi everyone! This is a quilt top that has been finished for a few months now....and NOT FINISHED (grrr...)I love the way it has turned out so far! The colors are so bright the pictures really dont do it justice.I love the contrast of any bright color with black and white. Anyways it is my own creation as far as i know lol... I just appliqued the x's,o's,hearts,and the word love in the middle onto random blocks i pieced together.

here is the center of the quilt...



and this is the whole quilt taken from me on a barstool above it haha...




Hopefully I will get off my lazy butt and finish this sometime soon... ENJOY!

7  1st colorful quilt top finally finished! in Quilting: Completed Projects by ALI-MAE on: December 16, 2007 09:01:20 PM
ok i know i posted this before and i am too excited not to share it with you!  i am now just getting around to posting the completed pics although it was finished within 6 days from scratch!...(been so busy working on other christmas gifts)...so here it is (im hiding behind it here)



i ended up doing different decorative stitches on the seamlines..

and i did a little embroidery on it to add something extra this is on all 4 corners



and this is in all the bigger rectangles throughout the quilt



and this shows the backing along with a little bit of the binding



i started out handsewing the binding on ( but i would prolly still be working on that...lol) but the i decided to just do decorative stitching on that too!!! and it turned out looking good (i think)

8  lil scottish warriors! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by ALI-MAE on: December 12, 2007 09:30:26 PM
hi! meet my dogs rocky and rambo...they are so bratty but adorable! anyways i made them some doggie coats although i dont think it will ever get cold considering it was 75 two days ago!! but when it gets cold these boys will be ready! i made these off the top of my head. i used plaid flannel fabric (because you know shelties are scottish) i embroidered their names on them... and filled it with quilt batting and stitched diagonal lines on it... at first i thought it was going to be a disaster but i think they turned out pretty well... so introducing


this is rambo in action!


now its rocky's turn


and here are two detailed shots of the coats where you can sorta see the stitches and names


and this one says rocky although sorta blurry!



thanks for looking hope you likey!
