So, even though I haven't been sewing a lot lately, I decided to update my Etsy shop with the rest of my inventory. Well, about an hour after I listed the Godfather costume from The Nutcracker, it sold! It was my first sale in months! Well, my first creation I've sold in months. The last thing I sold was at the Charleston Scrapbooking Craft Fair, and before that there were a few things I sold on consignment at the same store.
Sadly, Charleston Scrapbooking closed it's doors at the end of May. The owner has opened a new and smaller business closer to her house (which means it's closer to mine too), so I still have a place I can scrapbook. Wednesday night was my first visit to the new store, and man, I'm loving the 5 minute commute. Once the weather isn't so flippin' hot, I could probably walk there. I'm not sure about the walking though since I live off Main St. and the shop is right off the Bypass. We'll see.
This week I've spent cleaning up my craft area and organizing my doll stuff that I brought down and unpacked on Saturday. I have to say it's kind of nice to know when I'm looking for a blanket I can look in the Bedroom Stuff box and find it. I also am working on setting up two displays. I still have my vintage kitchen set up on my baker's rack in the hallway, but it's been piled up with so much random doll stuff that I need to clear it up. I did finish my other display which is a dining room scene. It sits on the end table in my living room, right next to the front door. I will leave my dolls out of the displays, an they will continue to be stored upstairs on the totally awesome bunkbed set my dad made for me.
