Asian Artistry Birdy Note Cards


I wanted to update over the weekend craft show.  It was the worst show I had ever had.  Friday evening I sold 2 items, Saturday evening I sold a few small items and Sunday I sold one item worth $12.  On top of the table fee, we had to give 20% of our total sale.  Well it wasn't much since I didn't sell much.  It wasn't only me that didn't do good.  All the handmade vendors didn't do good.  But the reseller vendors they did pretty well.  So it seemed to me that Bryn Mawr community preferred  manufacture items over unique handmade crafts, different stroke for different folks for sure.

I haven't make a cards in a long time.  So last week I took out my favorite stamp set from Stampin' UP! and made these cards.

Again, if you are local, stop by Sun Vally High School craft show this Saturday, October 25th, from 9AM - 3PM.  There are many craft vendors including me.

Sorry to hear your craft show didn't go well. It's never fun when you aren't selling. I've never done one that expected a percentage of your sales. I don't think I would like that part. The ones I've done have asked for a donation for a chinese auction.

Beautiful cards, Helen! I think the Bryn Mawr area is probably too upscale for handmade items. Sorry it wasn't profitable.
