Betsy's on Etsy

Just made my first etsy sale!!! I set up the account in '08 with the intention of selling my creations but who would have gussed that it's hard to sell items when you don't post anything. Well...two years later, I finally posted some items and made a sale.

Red Barn Farms

Red Barn Farm's Fall Festival was a blast. There were so many cute young families and kids everywhere. Elaine and I were lucky enough to have a great booth location next to some awesome vendors like S-Wheatie-Pie, Renaissance Designs, and Hungry Horse (jams and such).
The greatest part of the weekend for me was watching all the people try on our old hats and glasses and laugh at each other until they about cried.

Red Barn Farms-October Festival

The Red Barn is a place that is very dear to my heart as many of you know (my wedding location) and now I have the pleasure of setting up a booth at the October festival. I will have my jewelry and lots of hand-made goodies for purchase. Elaine and I are so excited to be participating this year. Last year we attended and found some great treasures, if you make it to Colton I'm sure you will too!

The festival is October 9-10 with live music, kids activities, a pumpkin patch and great food.
Can't wait to see you all there!

Uniontown was a Success

Saturday was great many people. There were not as many booths as the last few years but it was still great. I almost purchased more treasures than I sold. It is hard for me to pass up the Sisters' Sale on the highway and once again I took some merchandise off their hands and left them my money. Their stuff is so fun and right up my ally. Well 364 days til next year when I hope to see you all there.

UNIONTOWN flea market

The yearly Uniontown flea market is coming up on Aug. 21. Elaine and I will have a booth with tons of treasures and a huge jewelry sale. All jewelry pieces will be $10 each or 3 for $28. It is a great way to spend the day. The park is full of vendors and the town is full of yard sales. A few years ago my cousin Tileena and I ate an amazing lunch @ The Sage all in all there is tons to do and great eats too. Can't wait to see you all there!

I LOVE doing custom orders. These are two of my favorite pieces I've created. The parachuter over the ocean, snow-covered mountains, and sun was for a friend/classmate of mine and the other is the Lone Cypress Tree of California made for one of my professors.

Bottle Caps...Gotta Love 'Em

My latest venture has been my bottle cap magnets that I am in love with. I have been trying to branch out and find other uses for them, this photo frame is one thing. I have had ladies buy magnets with names on them to make chore boards for their fridge- Super cute ideas!

My BU2ful booth at Unique Design

This is my booth space at Unique Design in the Orchards across from Rosauers. It is a work in progress but none the less, you should come in and check it out!

Flower Headbands

If these babies aren't adorable, I don't know what is! The green flower is my niece, Blake Lynn, and the other is Darby Jo. The headbands are available at Unique Designs and where ever I have a craft booth set-up. I sew the flower on so there is no metal to irritate your babies head.

For My Bridesmaids

The theme of my wedding was "Nature." The colors were chocolate and moss with a splash of peacock blue. In my hair, I wore a cream flower with Swarovski crystals, pearls, peacock blades, and green feathers. I wanted my girls to have something similar so I made them all peacock feather bobby pins with vintage buttons.

Christmas In Clarkston, WA

For the past three, maybe four, years Elaine Alford and I have set-up a booth at the Christmas craft show in the Clarkston HS gym. This craft show is getting bigger and bigger every year. These are some shots of our booth a few years ago. Looking forward to the show again this year!
