The Tuesday Marketplace wasn't as much of a success as I had hoped, but I did learn A LOT from it! :)  Nest weekend I'm trying my hand at an actual craft fair!!!  It's at the beach, and I'm super excited for it! Not only do I get to sell my decoden and amigurumi and plushies, but I also get to sell all the jewelry I've made too!!  Super stoked about it! :D
I've been looking for cake platers to display items on in my booth, but haven't had any luck finding ones I like at a reasonable price.  Oh sure, I've found lots that I like, but I didn't want to pay what the were asking.  So I did what any other crafty person would do, I made my own!!  I was at home goods and saw some nice ceramic plates then I some some matching bowl, and the light bulb went off.  I realized I could glue the plate to the bowl and have my own platter!!!  I really like the way they turned out.  I used Jewelry glue because that's what I had on hand.  And because those turned out so well, I went to Goodwill to see what i could find there, and I found some awesome tea plates and mini shot glasses!  I was hoping to find tea cup/plate sets, but I didn't want to pay #7 for 1 set.......... So I did the next best thing.  I really like the way they turned out too.  Not to mention, they would be adorable cupcake display stands!  I think I'll be displaying cupcake amigurumi on them when I make some, and probably some bracelets too.

Well, time to get back to crafting!!
Happy crafting everyone! :)
