Baldwin Park Independence Day Bash
I did my biggest event to date on July 5 at Baldwin Park’s annual Independence Day Bash. I borrowed a 10×10 tent from my friends at Barnwood BBQ and spent over a week producing inventory for the expected 1000 plus crowd. Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned and the event was almost rained out. My husband and I stuck it out and made a few sales, but overall the event wasn’t really profitable for us. I also lost my cardboard stand due to the rain.
On the plus side I learned a lot and figured out a nice set-up for my cards for future events. I also have a great deal of inventory that I will be putting on etsy. I have several pictures of these new items that I made. Enjoy!
I just got approved to be a vendor at Baldwin Park’s first Friday event. It will be this Friday 6/6/14 from 5:30-9:30. It’s a free sidewalk event down Baldwin Park’s main street. I hope to see you there.
Here are some pictures from my last workshop and recent projects. I’ve been busy and hope to have more box cards for sale soon.
The amount of creations I have been working on is rather extreme. I’m eager to share the photos of what I’ve been working on. I finished a order of 200 cards this month, had a workshop and several smaller orders. I just got a new camera for my birthday so hopefully my pictures will look better now. In case your wondering this is what 200 teacup cards look like see below. Also the bunny and chick treat holders are in just in time for Easter order yours today they are $2 a piece with candy and $1 without.
I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day today with the ones you love. Here are some Valentine’s Day project pictures from my recent workshop. Enjoy! To see the tutorial for the Hershey heart click here: http://qbeesquest.blogspot.com/search/label/Hershey%27s%20Kisses
My first craft fair is officially one week away and I am super excited!! I have been super busy all month working on card sets, Hershey kiss trees, purses, etc.. I’m sorry I didn’t have a November workshop, but I was just too busy to plan one. If you would like to come out Saturday and support me I would love to see you both old and new friends alike. I will also take preorders on items. Check out the buy now page and shoot me an email or comment on the website (I approve all comments before they appear to control spam) and you can pick up your items at the event. There is also a living social deal for discounted event tickets 2 for $4.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween. I wanted to share some of my Halloween creations including the treat bags I made to give out this year. I decided to go with a monster house theme. The window silhouettes were made from plastic black table cloth I traced and cut out. The garage face is poster board attached with double sided removable poster mounts.
Nerdy Card Fun
I’ve been working on a few new designs for a craft fair I’m hoping to be a vendor at the first week of December. Pikachu and the turtles might be some of the projects in my October Halloween workshop. I’m also thinking of doing a series of Dr. Who cards, with the tardis traveling to several different locations, like the mountains, beach, etc.. I might call the card set, “The Doctor’s travels”.
These tardis in space cards were made with a new technique I was trying out. I stamped the image in white ink and colored over it in color pencil. I love how they turned out and I’m eager to try this technique on another card.
The Pikachu and pokeball cards, along with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were made using punched out shapes. I love how they are super simple to make and are easily recognizable. These would be perfect for a kids birthday or any kid at heart.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think. These cards are available for sale just send me a message with what you are interested in and how many and I’ll get back to you. I am willing to ship and I accept payments through paypal. Until next time.
I made this cute card for a girlfriend’s birthday. I used gumball green paper and some yellow dsp. She loved it and I did too. Enjoy.
The next workshop will be next Thursday night Aug 22 at my house in Longwood. (message or e-mail me for address, I won’t post it)
The cost is $5 and we will be making these 3 awesome projects!! Projects include a post-it note holder, and two cards. The fun starts at 7pm, rsvp with me by Wednesday.
