Debs Designs: What I do on my days off

Debs Designs: What I do on my days off

What I do on my days off

Today, I'm getting ready for all my Fall crafts show where I specialize in beaded lanyards.

I'm a nurse and started making them when we had to start wearing a name badge to work. It's manatory. I wanted to make something that would also be functional. I started selling them to co workers and before I knew it, I was doing craft shows and selling on Etsy. It's become quite a hobby and a source of relaxation.

I use the best stones I can find, that will also be strong for everyday use. I wear mine everyday.

I find that wearing them, is also a great source of advertising.

Why do I love craft shows ???

Just came home from a craft show. I wonder why I do them. So much to do.

Book the shows.

Make my craft.

Pack up the car.

Carry all the tables, chairs and stock into the venue.

Set up and wait.

Explain how, when and why I do what I do.

Pack up everything.

Re pack my car.

Organize my stock and restock.

Fall into bed.

All and all, it was a terrific day and I can't wait to do it all again tomorrow!

Fall show season

Oh my goodness, its been a while since I've blogged.
I'm getting ready for my Fall shows and it's been a lot of fun. Creating, organizing is time consuming, but rewarding.
I'm still trying to think of ew ways to make my craft booth more interesting, more shopper friendly. If anyone has any ideas they'd like to share with me, please do.
Here are a few of my bracelet designs.
I still focus alot on my beaded lanyards and eyeglass holders.
Don't forget to keep an eye out for my etsy shop
