Gifting for the Holidays

Hi Friends!

I am starting to put together gift baskets and other goodies for the upcoming Holiday season. I have added a gift basket in my Shop page that is ready to be shipped. It is priced at $20.00 each plus shipping. The red gift basket is filled with a bath salt ornament, snowflake ornament, lip balm and a gingerbread man sugar scrub bar. If you would like to purchase please comment below and/or message me with the quantity that you need to purchase as well as your shipping details.

I will be posting additional gift baskets/bundles for purchase shortly in my Shop page for all of your gift giving needs!

Here is a snapshot of the red gift basket, that I was mentioning above ready for purchase below:

I will have these gifts and more at the upcoming Holiday open house,”A Refined Affair” with my great friend Stephanie. Stephanie is the owner of Lorraine’s Cottage (see her beautiful work here: http://www.lorrainescottage.com/) and the open house will be held at her lovely home in Mayfield Heights, Ohio from 10am-5pm. There will be about six artisans (me included) ready to share their work with you.

Busy Bee

Hey guys! Sorry I have been M.I.A lately. Been doing a lot of craft show organizing and finalizing everything for the show this upcoming Sunday. How was everyone’s weekend? I had a blast at the Halloween party that Shawn and I went too. We also went to Bloodview Haunted House in Brecksville, Ohio with Val and Roy! That was a ton of fun. I highly recommend checking out Bloodview for your next haunted house getaway!

I am so ready for Halloween this Friday! Our neighborhood has trick-or-treat that day from 6-8pm. The weather forecast isn’t looking so hot though! It is supposed to rain and be chilly. Yuck 😦 This will be Shawn and I’s second Halloween in our neighborhood ( We moved to Seven Hills last year, when we got married).

Okay, so the items I will be selling at the craft show will be the candy cane hot cocoa, spa day, hot cocoa and pumpkin pie sugar scrubs. I will also be selling chocolate covered pretzels (with sprinkles on top of course!) Each sugar scrub will be sold for $5.00 and the chocolate covered pretzels will be being sold two for one for a $1.00. I will be selling the candy cane hot cocoa, spa day and hot cocoa sugar scrubs online on my Shop page (on this blog!) starting November 1st! The pumpkin pie sugar scrub is already for sale under my Shop page right now, so feel free to start your early Holiday shopping with pumpkin pie sugar scrub 😉

Here is some pictures of the pumpkin pie sugar scrub finished and in the making 🙂

Pumpkin Pie

Chalkboard Fun!

Hello blog world! I am busy getting my first craft show things together and organized all of this week. I am excited about some of my decor that I am having at my little sugar scrubs craft table! Trending right now is chalkboard decor. If you look on Pinterest, chalkboard decor and other chalkboard crafts are all over the website right now! I just love this cute trend. I have been using this chalkboard trend before it was even considered to be a trend.

Want to get an early start on your Holiday shopping? I will have the Candy Cane Hot Chocolate and the Hot Cocoa sugar scrubs for sale under my Shop page starting November 1st! Get your calendars ready! 😉

Brainstorming

So many new and exciting things are starting to happen! I swear everything good always happens all at once it seems like. The only downside to some of these changes is that I may not have as much free time anymore. I am stuck trying to make some of these decisions. I am sure I will figure it out eventually.

Anyways, I will be selling my sugar scrubs along with a couple of other items at this upcoming craft show November 1st. I am not sure exactly what the other items will be yet as I am still brainstorming. I am sure the idea will hit me with one of those “AH-HA” moments. Food items seem to be pretty popular at craft shows, so I am thinking one of these items will be a food item. I am brainstorming with the ideas of cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels and the good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie.

Have any of you crafters/bakers ever participated in a craft show before? Or have you ever gone to a craft show? As always, I appreciate your feedback 😉

My First Craft Show!!!

Guys, I am so excited to share this news with you all! I am going to be in my very first craft show on November 1st selling my sugar scrubs! This craft show is in Mentor, OH at the Victory Lane Assembly of God church. The craft show begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. The admission is also FREE! 😀 So you just have to come check my booth out now 😉

I am going PIN CRAZY over here on Pinterest with all of the cool craft show booth ideas. I do not even know where to start! I have always wanted to be in a craft show so I am just ecstatic over this. I have so many ideas floating in my head now. I definitely need to order my business cards now! I had business cards before when I was a Mary Kay girl, but I tossed those awhile ago when I decided to pursue this.

Come check out my Craft Shows Pinterest board for craft show inspiration. I know I am very inspired already! Here is my Craft Shows board on Pinterest:
