Craft Show Here I Come!

NOTE: My shop The Beehive is now Papercut Kitchen! Please visit my shop Papercut Kitchen by clicking here.

Yesterday morning I got notice that I was accepted to the Handmade for the Holidays craft show! woo-hoo with a side of panic. I've been crafting like mad but it's tough going with the little ones and I know there's so much stuff I would like to make. There is also so many non-crafting show related details to take care of, it makes my head spin a bit. Today I get a fantastic reprieve, a friend of mine is going to watch my youngest during the day while I make, make, make! This is going to be wonderful, not only from a productivity stand point but I've been going a little mamma nuts this week and could really use some peace and quiet! Craft show here I come!

This new Owl Scrapbook is going to the show with me. It's not in my shop yet but will be soon!

I thought I was making tons of paper bead bracelets until I set them out for this shot. I think I'm going to need more! Especially since I've sold 2 and given one as a gift.

I'm also giving a lot of consideration to changing my business name. When I started this I wasn't really sure what I was going to make and sell so I went pretty generic with my name. Now that I've gotten that figured out it's time for a business name, logo and cohesive identity that speaks more to what I'm doing. It's tough going though, every time I come up with one that I love I find it's in use. I don't want to find myself stuck with a name like Scrapbook World or Scrapbooks by Sunny but I also have this issue where I like to go too crazy with names, something that is overly evident in the names I've chosen for my pets over the years. Hmm, this one will take some time to figure out!

But wait there's more! I've redesigned my wedding scrapbook cover. The first attempt was a sort of in the style of blech. Now I think I have a more modern, simple and pretty cover, ahhh much better! My full fledged wedding album is available for purchase here. If you want just the cover you can buy that here.

That's it for today's show and tell, happy scrapping!

Good luck at the show - and yeah, you're going to need more bracelets :)

Thanks! I've enjoyed having the beehive as my shop name too for that very reason. I'm just realizing how common it is and non-descriptive.

And yep, a sad stash of bracelets :)
