We have a problem. From what I hear it is fairly common, but there is no cure. Basically, we can't stop making things. This has led to storage problems and husbands who shake their heads at us in bewilderment. (They try to hide it from us, but we see it. Yeah, you thought you were sneaky, boys!) What to do?! We can't just stop crafting. That would be silly. Also, I think we are too far gone. So, instead we found another way to feed our addiction... the Farmers Market.
|Just a couple of junkies trying to push their stuff.|
Here you can see a few of our favorite items: the perfume lockets mentioned before, as well as ridiculously detailed pie magnets made by Noelle.
From infused sugars (mint, lavender and rose) to our decorated sugar cubes, this section gets us in a tea party mood. So, we also included some teacup candles and teacup pincushions in the area. At a couple of the events we set up a little tea set to add to the ambiance, but everyone kept wanting to buy it, and since the set belonged to a certain three year old little girl, that was a no-go. But hey, at least they were thinking tea party too...
The booth is rounded out by some crochet collections. The rag rugs (left) are incredibly comfortable to walk on and have a really pretty shabby chic look. (BTW - Don't let the name fool you... they are a ton of work. After cutting, combining, rolling and crocheting, it takes a good amount of time. They are worth it, though!)
Additional crocheted items include slippers, heart and flower garlands, and reusable face scrubbies.
All in all, we think it's a pretty cute booth. If you are in town for either the Syracuse or Bountiful Farmer's Markets, you should come check us out! Or at least say hi. We'll be the crazy ones dancing or laughing loudly.
