11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Trying on earrings? on: October 04, 2009 12:28:15 AM
I make faux guage earrings, and will be selling them for the first time at a craft fair in December. I plan on placing each pair in a plastic baggie with a cardstock piece stapled to the top. This has worked well selling them online, but I wonder about people wanting to try on earrings. I am not opposed to having people try them on, but I am not particularly enthralled with the idea of opening and closing my sealed packages over and over again. Plus, the sanitation issue. 

Should I have a few pairs for people to try on, just to see what faux gauge earrings look like on them? I don't mind bringing little alcohol wipes to clean the trial pairs. Plus, I'll be wearing a pair.

I also had the idea of making some "ears" out of polymer clay, just so people can see how easy they are to put in and out.

My job doesn't allow for "unnatural hair color", so for the six days of my vacation, I had green hair. I actually wanted turquiose, but my hair didn't bleach out completely, so yellow plus blue makes green, and this is what I got:

yes, that's a hula hoop. I am a hoop dancer! The last two were my costume at the Hooper's Ball, at the Hoop Path Retreat in North Carolina!

just thought I'd share some of the results so far:

Here are a few more, courtesy of my little bro:

  • I made you this card...mostly because I am protesting against those capitalist pigs at Hallmark.
  • In this pathetic excuse for an economy, I decided to make you a Valentine's card.
  • I didn't feel like fighting the blue hairs in the card aisle this year.
  • This card contains 30% more love than your average Valentine.
  • It's time to learn how to properly operate the Washing Machine.
  • And just think, no elementary school teacher made me give you this card!
  • Valentine, I am not fast enough to catch that little cherub and strangle him with his own arrows.
  • Error 404: Heartfelt sentiment not found
  • I only tolerate this stupid day to get the clearance chocolate the following week.
  • The crappy chocolates are big buisness' way of subtly laughing in your face for falling for their marketing ploy.

And I would also really like a promise/engagement ring but I dont see that one happening  Undecided

Ditto. The boy knows that's what I want, but he is adament about making more money before we get hitched. Even though we will provide equally for the relationship as far as finances go, he wants to make sure he has enough to provide for both of us, just in case.

Ok, so I really am not into the whole warm-fuzzy greeting cards. And shelling out 5 bucks for a card is just stupid. So I am writing some of the unusual Valentine's Day sentiments that will be on my cards this year. Please feel free to use for your own endeavors. Also, some of the sentiments I stole from Someecards.com ...that site is awesome. All of them are being handstamped onto really pretty paper that kinda looks like something Martha Steward would approve of.  Wink

  • I really like your pheromones.
  • I would save your life even if the perception of my sexuality was temporarily at stake.
  • If you were a pop-up ad, I wouldn't mind if the advertisers made you difficult to close.
  • If you have a fat day, I promise not to order a salad for lunch.
  • If I were a zombie, I know your brains would be a satisfying meal.
  • Reliable friends are very important. It's good to know you'd be there at my intervention.
  • If my purpose in life is to make you roll your eyes at me, then I appreciate you making it a challenge.
  • You are as rare and unique as designer jeans at Goodwill
  • You're so sweet to never ask me if I got engaged over this holiday of over-commericalized, wasteful imperialism to obligitorily celebrate an unrealistic idea of love.
  • Awkward silences are always least uncomfortable with you
  • I promise to always take your cynicsm seriously
  • It's so comforting to know that I won't be lonely in Hell
  • I hope that if there is reincarnation, we are on the same level in the food chain
  • You're one of the few people that I wouldn't wish Montezuma's Revenge upon.
  • I know you're a true friend, because you can read my handwriting.
  • I can always count on you to never invite me into any confusing or pointless Facebook applications
  • Thanks for being a great job reference, despite what you know.
  • I am glad to have a friend like you who will never laugh at my embarassing irritable bowel symptoms.
  • I can always count on you for unqualified medical advice.
  • I actually read your emails.
  • If there was a movie of your life, I'd rent it
  • This is the most special of the estimated of the 1 billion cards that will be sent out this Valentine's Day.
  • You are Sine Theta, and I am Cosine Theta....
  • If I had to grade you in awesomeness, you'd get at least a B+.
  • My therapist thinks you're a good catch

Please feel free to reply with any additional snarky sentiments!  Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy Grin Cheesy

I teach in schools (public and private) and the school board frowns upon "unnatural" hair colors. I really want turquiose, but alas.

I decided to do some redish streaks.

I'm gonna donate my hair to Locks of Love once the red washes out.

I look like my dad! HAHAHA!

I'm making my mom two embroidered coffee cuffs, for her daily Starbucks habit.

My fiance has already recieved his gift of a wire photo mobile.

My brother will be getting a beanie...crocheted.
