131  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Craft Fairs in Kentucky on: September 01, 2005 06:22:31 PM
Hey, I live in Lexington and come to Louisville often.  I was a little confused about your post?  Are you going to have a general craft group?  I am into a lot of different things...beading, scrapbooking, home decor, graphic design (I'm actually a graphic designer). 

As far as the art fair stuff goes, I have looked into it a bit.  St. James is pretty good (I've heard not as good as it used to be).  Anyway, I haven't been looking for that type of fair, cause, it is a) big and pricey b) juried c) I think  you have to have a tent/serious set up.  I just have a table and decorate it when I have done shows.  I've done a couple of smaller craft bizarre type things and a home jewelry party.  i haven't fared as well with those, but a lot of that has to do with the type of people that are actually in attendance.  I think the home jewelry party is ok, but it works better if you invite a lot of people/have a pretty good location.  I had mine around Christmas of last year and one at a high school this past valentine's.  I think it is just something you have to try...get your stuff out there and see what kinda moolah you can make.  I am considering something with my friend in a couple months up in the Ville for Christmas...anyway, if I find any smaller craft shows of interest, I will pass them on.

Ta ta for now.

Better Homes does a quarterly magazine (has been out about a year now) called Bargain Style.  It is a really fun, young, youth-inspired decorating mag.  I like a lot of their special publications (100 decorating ideas for under $100, etc.), but this one fits me to a t.  They have ideas to make/buy reasonable priced stuff and they have fun articles.  I totally recommend it.

133  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Tasha's Perfectly Pink Invite on: August 31, 2005 07:54:40 PM
Seems like lately I have designed a lot of invites for my friends.  I do enjoy it though, it is really fun (and an excellent portfolio piece).  Here's the latest thing I did...I made an invite for my friends' b-day.  She turned 27 and I wanted her to feel special.  She is very girly and I wanted that to be reflected in her invite. The outfit she wears on front is something she would actually wear (including sequin belt, her new engagement ring, and lapel rose).  I made 20 of these!  It took a while, but was worth it and I put it in matching envelopes. 

I also made her a matching scrapbook for her b-day (to be filled in by her with photos).  I included her invitation and a section about her to fill out at this point in her life.  I also had everyone at her party fill out a sheet telling how they met, their favorite moment with her, and their wish for her as she turned 27.  Okay, enough for now.  Here it is...
