My daughter had another birthday party to go to this weekend- another friend from her dance classes. Apparently, we now have a reputation with these girls to uphold- we are the "cool card givers"! Since I have not repeated a card type for this group of girls, the pressure is on to come up with something new for each girl's birthday. At first it was easy- I did the exploding box card for the first one back in December, then followed up with a never-ending card in February (which apparently I did not get a picture of), a slide card in March, and then last weekend, a different type of slide card. I was a bit at a loss what to do for this one, until I remembered a card that my BFF Kendra did a couple of years ago and sent to me. I emailed her and described it, and she informed me that it was called a waterfall card and that I could find a video tutorial on YouTube on how to do it. I did find the video, as well as this tutorial, and it turns out that it is really quite easy to make!
Now for an exciting announcement! I am going to be taking part in the Salem Etsy Team's Spring Craft Show next month- my first real craft show! There will be a variety of craft and vintage vendors there, and I am really looking forward to meeting to some of the other Salem Etsy sellers! Now, I just need to have stuff to sell at this show- so I have some crafting to do! I've been working on cards this weekend, and will post a preview of some of these later in the week. Also on my agenda is to make some more collage-style bookmarks, and perhaps some gift envelopes to go along with them. I am focusing on Mothers Day products, but also plan to make a few Father's Day and graduation items as well. Time is short, however- the sale is May 5th, which is less than 3 weeks away. Time to get busy! Be sure to check back and see what I'm making, because I will have lots to share in the next couple of weeks!
