Yes, I think I am about to take a plunge into the world of craft co-ops! It’s not 100% yet but I have spoken to the owner of this wonderful craft/antique co-op called Liberty Hollow, and am looking at a few booth options. I will most likely start small and if things work out, I’ll move into a larger booth!
THIS IS SO EXCITING! It’s been consuming my mind lately!!! Also, Liberty Hollow has a…how do I put this…”sub-par” website lacking a lot of basic information and design so I offered to re-do the website in exchange for a few bucks off my monthly booth fee, which the owner seemed very interested in. I hope it works out; this place is right up my alley! It’s one of my favorite places to shop, and I know the place like the back of my hand! I’ll keep ya’ll posted!
In the mean time, I have acquired some really great new rubber stamps that I picked out especially for stamping my grubby hang tags. The first is a lovely little bird cage…these seem like they’d be great for Valentine’s Day!
I realllllly love these ones….skeleton keys, of course! They are my new obsession lately…not sure why!
I love the flower with the script behind it. It’s so….romantic.
And lastly is my favorite, a Victorian style woman writing at her desk…
I plan on grouping them together and selling them for crafts, scrapbooking, gift wrapping, or whatever your primitive little heart desires! I recently saw unstamped grubby hang tags in a catalog selling 5 for $5….gimme a break! I am thinking more like 5 for $1!
I attached a (reproduction) skeleton key to the tag for interest.
It was inspired by the pic below from Confessions of a Plate Addict. I am certain they are the same keys from Hobby Lobby!
I could make these all day! Not sure what to do with them though…they’re just so PRETTY. Hang up or use as bowl fillers perhaps? Do you like the homespun (below) or the ribbon (above) better? I usually prefer homespun for all projects, but I might be leaning towards the ribbon for these.
And the left overs became funky hanging ornaments!
The other project I worked on over the weekend was replenishing my stock of country tea lights. The little plastic flames are wrapped with masking tape to avoid getting the texture paste on them.
I textured a few of these little rusty stars to make small star ornaments. I love them as plain ol’ rusty stars, but couldn’t help experimenting here. Cute and simple stars never fail!
Well, I got my crafting fix…for now! The possibility of a real booth has motivated me. I am overwhelmed with ideas and to-do lists!!!
Have a great week everyone!
