Autumn and Craft Shows

Is it autumn already?! The weather is beautiful and warm and so are the findings you will start seeing with craft shows and holiday boutiques!
Just to mention a few and to mark your calendars...
The 1st craft show I will attend is St. Michael/Albertville Fall Craft Show sponsored by the Women of Today. November 21 from 9-4 at the Middle School West
(11343 50th St NE Albertville). This is the must see craft show of the season, chuck full of vendors in the gymnasium, cafeteria and hall ways. Come and see me won't be disappointed.
I will be busy creating more pieces and will have glass Xmas ornaments available for sale as well.

I will be attending a Holiday Boutique in Elk River starting November 5-14. The concept is a "Holiday House" with a home being decorated from room to room with furniture, dishes, ornaments, stocking stuffers and other goodies which will all be available for purchase. Two weekends to shop for holiday items: November 5,6,7 and 12,13,14.
The home is located just East of Perkins in Elk River.....11231 190th Ave NW. You can search on Mapquest on how to get to this holiday house.

Happy Fall Y'all!

Relay for Life...Cancer Walk

The joy of summer is upon us! We'll all find time between the graduation parties to get out and enjoy the earth and life.
Speaking of life, we all have been affected in some ways by cancer, either a survivor or a loved one that is currently in the fight, fought the fight, or sadly lost the fight. I've decided to put forth my best effort and help those WIN the fight by participating in the craft show at the annual Relay for Life Cancer Walk in Delano, MN.
My nephew (Bradley) was diagnosed with Wilm's Cancer of the kidney, at the tender age of 1. He DID win that fight and is now an active 3 year old. Most of my family and my sister-in-law's family are participating and will be involved in activities the night of the walk. I, along with other MN crafters, will also have my jewelry designs at the 'craft show' part of the relay, where 25% of my profits will go toward cancer research. Stop on out and say HI or give a donation for a great cause!
When: July 31st, 2009
Time: 4:30 pm to 9:00 pm (the relay is 24 hours)
Where: Delano City Park (rain or shine).
Donate on line at: relayforlifeDelano

Spring Showers bring May Creations!

Spring has sprung and so has my creativity! I have been busy creating new and exciting designs for spring and summer. After going through a dry spell of the same old beads, I have purchased some new and exciting stones...some are very fascinating!
Check out just some of the newest designs for my Spring 2009 Collection.

Spring yet....coming soon!

Here I am once again, wondering where my time goes and why my blog is slacking!?!?
I quad-hosted an Open House/Trunk Show with a few other crafters and home based businesses on March 11th. It was an exciting time for me, as it was my first "real" show since starting my business and returning home from our 18th month stay/live in Hawaii. Although we had a 'not as many as previous years' turnout, (the previous night's snow storm made the evening extremely cold, thus putting a damper on some who didn't want to fight the last blast of winter) the evening was profitable for all. The sales made room for some new pieces I've been working on and gave me some good ideas for spring! I am also attending a bead show this coming weekend, plan to find some spring/summer items.

I will be/am creating some whimsical pieces for Easter and traditional too. Spring is just around the corner and so is summer and bbq's and baseball and etc....
P.S. My shop Deal of the Month: Make a purchase of $60 or more and receive a FREE item valued at $20(or less) OR take 25% off 2nd item!!
Watch my shop for items Coming Soon and Happy Spring!

March Madness

Wow, where did the time go! I can't believe it's been this long between posts and here I am again saying, it's been a while since my last.......
Well, a few things have changed with life. We moved back from Hawaii, what a move that was, I'm on Facebook and so is my shop's page, I'm involved with my first home show in 3 years and life is good!
Mark your calendar, March 11th is my first in-home (St. Michael, MN) trunk show as StoneyMistDesign. I'm very excited and have been preparing ever since I got word last week. Since life in Hawaii is far away from craft shows and home shows, I'm stocking up on new inventory as much as possible. New spring items should be done soon and summer pieces. I'll have my entire inventory with me and some new pieces not listed in my shop. March brings a usual dumping of fresh snow to MN, but I'm thinking spring with all the beautiful colors of freshness.
Keep an eye out for new listings after the show.

Ohhhhhh, and don't forget my deal of the month for what's left of February: get a FREE upgrade to Priority Mail with any purchase. March will bring this deal: Make a purchase of $60 or more and get one FREE ($20 or less) OR take 25% off 2nd item!
