so this weekend i had my very first open house and was pleased with with the outcome. i had about 20 people and i wish wish wish i remembered to take pictures!!! i had my camera out and even went to go grab it when i got sidetracked and was too busy yapping away with all my girlfriends, that i never once turned my camera on!! i even made some super yummy sangrias and of course didn't even get pictures of that so i could share the recipes! (hopefully at a later date!)
i had a lot of purses and baby gifts on hand and i think i had TOO MANY choices for people because noone could make up their minds about what to get! i guess better too much than not enough though! sooo...hopefully i'll open up my etsy shop this week with some leftover goodies from the open house!!
just wanted to say THANK YOU for all that attended! i'm so grateful to have such amazing friends who have passed my name on when they get complimented on their bags and for bringing me more business! without you guys there would be no Crafty Natalie!! you ladies are the BEST!!!
i've decided to throw a purse party some time this summer! a lot of my friends have requested purses, especially ever since i started making my tote bag! so i thought it would be a good way to get rid of some of the ones i've been keeping busy making, and also a good way to start up my Etsy shop (which i thought i was going to have up and running at the end of June, but it's not looking like it's going to happen just yet!) i'm also going to be doing baby items too! these key fobs seemed to be a random request every now and then so i just made a bunch! my little cousin said that down in Richmond there's a shop that sells them for $20!! i, for one think that's outrageous!!! or maybe i'm just cheap like that...who knows!
i think it'll be fun to have an open house for "crafty natalie" because i'm all about getting feedback! it'll be fun to see what items people request more of and what areas i could also work on!
