Awesome! You never cease to amaze me with just how much you can do with cardboard. When the Atlanta Doll Collectors host our next show, I sure hope you'll come and sell. I always see things in your setups that I want to buy- lol
Jewell, cardboard has been good to me for a long time. I truly appreciate it.Atlanta is way too far for me to cart all this stuff. That's a 6 hour drive. Well, 8 with how many times I stop to use the bathroom, lol. Whatever I don't sell at the doll show this Saturday, I'll start listing in my online store bit by bit.
Very nice! I love all of the iterations of your stands, each one getting better!
Thanks, Phyllis! Every time I finished one, I was all, "Hmm. What if I tried it this way?" Thank goodness for cheap materials.
it looks fantastic! I love how you did it all with cardboard, glue, and craft sticks, but yet it looks so professional. Genius!
Thank you, Lisa! A little bit of craft paint and no one need know it's a bunch of packing boxes.
Your displays always make me want to shop, Muff!
LOL, Presto, then I'm doing it right.
Wow! Very nice display! Your display is inviting and your prices are totally awesome! I hope you sell out although I am secretly hoping that you have a book or two left for the online shop. Lol! I love the whole presentation!
Thanks, Georgia Girl! Even if I sell out, I'm going to keep making books. I really enjoy doing those.
Hello Muff, I think you should totally make "how to" videos, because you're so crafty.Cheers!
Monstercrafts, if I wasn't so pressed for time I would have made how to's on some of the things in the video. It doesn't help that I keep changing my mind on how to make things either.
This video made me want to take a plan and go there with a huge trolley caseDid you do those earrings? My annoying older sister creates earrings, necklaces, bracelets, keychains, it's her hobby
Hiya, Sergio! I believe I only made 3 of the earring sets and they are over 20 years old. They held up pretty good.
There was so much drudgery in doing doll shows, for me. You make it look like so much fun. All your displays look fabulous! You get out of hand? Never. Lol! I'm sure I will be shopping in your online store in the future. Good luck at the show.
Vanessa, I definitely find it fun, and being able to streamline the amount of stuff I take reduces the hassle.
Wow is all I have to add to this discussion:-)I also love cardboard crafts, they're rewarding even though my efforts don't always turn out great like yours do, they're always usable.
Thanks, Maricha! Sometimes I think about how faster I could make something with wood instead of cardboard since I often times have to strengthen the cardboard by gluing several pieces together and wait and wait for it to dry. But it's easier to cut, no sawdust and free.
I also thought about using wood but for small items you're better off using a scroll or jig saw and I'm very fond of my fingers ;)Again, you did amazing work with all those items. I used to go see the final projects of students in industrial design and fashion marketing programs and their creations only looked this good after weeks of tweaking and input from professors.Really, Wow!
Jestem pod wielkim wrażeniem! Ogromnie mi się podoba Twoje dzieło! Wygląda bardzo profesjonalnie! Rewelacyjny pomysł z filmem!Pozdrawiam bardzo serdecznie!
Dzięki tak dużo, Olla!
I'm guessing you are doing Doll Shows! This type of organization is not for flea markets. There must be a good number in your area. This is the season too! Good luck!!! I just found one in this area.
Ms. Leo, I couldn't say I wouldn't be just as particular at a flea show. I used to do those way way back in the day and I recall being quite anal about my displays. It's just my nature, lol. The National Barbie Convention is coming here in July and I'm trying to see if I can swing going as a vendor.
Yes, please do! Jewell, myself and some others from our doll club plan to be there. It would be great to meet you AND purchase some of your great items!
Georgia Girl, you are giving me more incentive to get myself together for the convention.
I love your logo, and your use of it on the bags. Cool! Your displays rival the professional ones. They are a pleasure to see, even unloaded. You are a Craft Mistress Extraordinaire - I've created a new title for you, lol.Best wishes for the doll show.
D7ana! So good to see you, or rather your icon, lol. I shall accept the title of CME with a head bow. Thank you. *head bow to the left* Thank you. *head bow to the right*
