Streamline Your Tagging Process

I have wanted to change my pricing for months, but the thought of having to remove my old tags, make new ones, then apply them to all my items one by one was daunting. It was so daunting that I put it off for months. Now I streamlined my tagging process to make this task […] Read more…

16 X 8 Market Booth Setup

My favorite thing about doing a market is the booth setup. If I am being 100% honest, majority of the reason I do markets is because of this. If there was a job out there that I could just do booth setup after booth setup, I’d be the first one in line to apply. Seeing […] Read more…

8 Goals for Makers in 2019

At the close of a year, it’s always a good time to reflect on all the things we accomplished, as well as the areas we want to improve upon. If you watched my live with Ashley of A Crafty Concept last night then you heard all about our 2019 maker goals. I have that video […] Read more…

DIY Blanket Scarf

This year I added blanket scarves to my market items and they were a total hit. At one market I sold more blanket scarves than knitwear items! Not only are these items pretty simple to make, but they are pretty affordable as well depending on which fabric you choose. You guys have been asking for […] Read more…

Crocheters Can Knit Too

I can’t be the only crocheter who loves the way knit looks, but literally just can’t when it comes to two needles. Funny enough I learned to knit before I learned to crochet but it just never stuck. It hurts my hands, it takes too long, and I just cannot get my tension right. If […] Read more…

Indoor Markets – How to Setup Your Booth

I have my first indoor market coming up babes and I am so excited. I was admittedly pretty nervous about this market being indoors. I wouldn’t be able to have my treasured tent for my setup and that made me fairly nervous. So being who I am, I did a mock setup in my living […] Read more…
