Countdown to Vermont Hand Crafters…

Craft Vermont 2009 BadgeIn four days, I’ll be attending my first craft show of the season, Craft Vermont.

The show, hosted by Vermont Hand Crafters (a.k.a. VHC) is in its 57th year. I joined the VHC board earlier this year and have enjoyed pushing my social media agenda on the organization.

To find out more about the organization, become a fan of Vermont Hand Crafters on Facebook.

I swore at the beginning of the year that I would not allow myself to go crazy during craft show season. Yeah, like that had any chance of happening. Do I even know myself at all? So I’ve been working like a mad woman for weeks. I’m not sure where the time went and I feel like I haven’t done anything at all.

This is the time when I force myself to look at what I have done. I can’t deny numbers. I just tallied up my recent work and here’s what it looks like:

  • 20 photo albums of various sizes
  • 19 journals
  • 69 accordion books
  • 4 custom order albums
  • 4 guest books
  • 24 scrap bags (I keep these under the table)

And I still have work in progress, which includes more journals and accordion books. Oh oh oh and my proudest accomplishment – I taught myself the Celtic Weave. Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find in my booth this year:

Okay, now that I remembered the binding, now I’m feeling better. Ahhhh…

If you’re attending Craft Vermont, you can find me in booth #7 in the Emerald Room. You can download a coupon to save $1.00 on admission to the show. You can then take the $1.00 you saved and buy me a coffee – I’ll need it, trust me. 🙂

I hope to see you there!

I’m really sorry I’m so far away – otherwise I’d be visiting you at Vermont to see all these books. You are such a dynamo, what a list of books you’ve made. I hope that Craft Vermont is a huge success and you sell heaps.

Carol –

Thanks so much for your kind words. I’ll be taking pictures during the show so it will be just like you’re there…except you don’t have to pay admission. 🙂
