Craft Fair Sneak Peak

I wanted to share a few things I have made for the various arts and crafts fairs, that I am selling at.  I am selling a variety of different items that I create.  I have a 'Pantry' section at my booth.  This is where I have home-made Vanilla extract.  I made some with Mexican vanilla beans, Madagascar vanilla beans, and Uganda vanilla beans.  There has been a large interest in this. 

I also have canned Maple Blueberry spoon fruit.  When I cooked the blueberries, I kept them whole, so they would retain their shape, and so there is whole fruit with minimal syrup.  It is perfect on pancakes, cheese cake, or ice cream.  I also have some Christmas Cranberries.  When I cooked the cranberries, I added orange peel, and a splash of bourbon.  I have a few customers who use this as their base for making their own cranberries. You just add one to two cans of cranberry sauce, and a jar of my Christmas Cranberries.

I have made some small gift bags.  These little bags have a small paper bag on the inside.  I am selling these various gift bags at the Arts & Craft Fairs for $3.00 each.  I used various pattern papers to decorate the card stock. This particular bag was made with pattern paper from Basic Grey Holiday collection.  To see an earlier version of this bag, I had made these bags for a girlfriends baby shower, as their 'thank you' gift bag.  (that post is here.)

I have also sewn some fabric coasters.  You can purchase them individually for $2.00 each, or I have 'gift set's available for $8.00.  
The fabric coasters are sewn with an insulator material inside, to reflect the heat from your hot drink back to your cup.
The fabric coasters are in feminine fabrics, and holiday fabrics.  
The 'gift set's have a fabric coaster, various coffee packages, and a white mug.  The white mug is decorated with a hand-applied decal, so you will need to hand-wash these.  I tied the package with coordinating ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will be posting a few more photos tomorrow.  I have altered some notebooks, covered notepads, and magnetic letters.
