Today is Capital Letter Day in My World.

I will now be Selling Stuff.
In an effort to avoid getting a real job and having to *GASP* wear actual clothes every day (like SOCKS and Not-Pajama-Pants) I have decided to start making things to sell. This will obviously not take any Effort or Time at all and will enable me to very quickly move to wherever it is the Rich People go and start living In Style with leather furniture and big screen t.v.s and tiny purse dogs and all that. And an Escalade. It'll be great. You can all come and visit me. I'll have a guest house.
In all seriousness, a friend and I have decided to sign up for a craft show in April to try our luck at selling our "arts" and "crafts". Jenn and I will be sharing a booth and our theme for this show will be "Kid's Stuff". (Original, aren't we?) We are going to coordinate our items and try to have a lot of fun. We plan to have Colored Lights and Alcoholic Party Drinks in our booth so of course we will be massively popular and we will sell everything we put a price tag on. 
(I am just kidding. We don't have a liquor license so we won't actually be selling pina colodas in our Child Themed Booth.)

Since I am making things to sell, I might as well list them on Etsy, right? So here THAT is:

And here are some pictures of the things I have been making:
Regular Crayon Totes
Regular Crayon Totes
DEEEluxe Crayon Totes With Jumbo Crayons
These are the Jumbo Crayons that come in the above tote.
Awesome crayon puzzle
Jungle Animal Crayons
Ladybug Crayons
Butterfly Crayons
The crayon sets will come packed in these adorable COLORFUL HAPPY FUN boxes!
 So lately, when I wasn't Ruining Gorgeous Fabric by trying to make An Incredibly Difficult Designer Tote Bag, I have been peeling crayons and making crayon totes. Good times, people!


  1. The crayons are adorable! You're going to list them alone, right?

    Do you ever worry that you'll read other sewing blogs that make things similar enough to what you make to make you nervous that they will think you're copying them? Cause when you said "kid stuff" up there I suddenly worried that I'd never be able to read your blog again. I promise never to purposely copy you, k? Can I still read? Sometimes it's so hard to know why you (and by that I mean me) are making certain things, did you (again, I) make it up? see it somewhere in the literally hundreds of blogs I read (I mean, skim)? I try very hard to not copy other ideas, but gah, everything has been done, you know?

  2. Wow! Best of luck at the booth and etsy. I've had better luck on etsy than at a booth~ just sayin'. :)

  3. the crayons are beautiful! I love the tote with the 'I Love you' crayons tucked in.

  4. I love the Love You crayon tote.

    The crayons are sweet as, and th idea for packing it all up in the box is completely inspired Lisa!

    Good Luck with the shop and with the stall!


Got something to say?
