Show @ Erin's house






I spent the last two weeks preparing for a small product show at a friend's house. I stayed up until midnight sewing most nights because I forget that I must sleep to function the next day. I got sick for the first time in a year but managed to sew on. I finally had most of it together this morning before the show thanks to my husband's help with Sebastian and my mom's encouragement. I get to the show with time to spare and discover...I've forgotten to bring any money for change! No matter...husband to the rescue again. Turns out, I didn't need much as I only sold one blanket and two burp cloth packs.
I'm telling myself not to be sad because now its all ready for the next time I need to sell it. (Its probably going up on Etsy.com)
Anyways, here's some pics.
Thanks for all of the sign ups for our FIRST EVER VALENTINE CARD SWAP! I'm so excited to see what you girls are making. Just a reminder...send me your NAME, E-MAIL and MAILING ADDRESS to REDVELVETART (at) HOTMAIL.COM.
To answer a few questions...we'll be taking sign ups until Jan 26th at midnight...you'll get between 3-5 cards...feel free to write a message in these to your new friend...you can use any medium you'd like...IMPORTANT: YOU MUST HAVE THEM FINISHED AND READY TO SEND BY FEB. 5TH TO HAVE THEM DELIVERED IN TIME FOR FEB. 14TH. IF YOU HAVE ANY INTERNATIONAL CONTACTS you may want to send them as soon as you can. Its up to you.
I've already received some pics from one of our ladies! Great job!

Lovin' the burp clothes! I have a friend who is expecting. I'm giving her your ETSY addy so that she can see the clothes. Great idea! I'm off to email you my info for valentine's day...

Gorgeous fabrics, wonderful creations! I'm surprised that you didn't sell more--you just haven't found the right venue, because your stuff is great :)

Thank you so much, ladies! I am hoping to do some more shows around the area this spring to help my fabric addiction. I'm really getting into vintage fabrics like Chenille (sp?) bedspreads and old scarves with lots of bright colors! Brett's mom sent me a blue one recently that I used on one of these quilts and it just adds such a nice texture.
Thanks again for all of the compliments!
You guys rock!

Hi RedVelvet Girls~
I REALLY wanted to do your card swap, but have such a long list of people on my own mailing list. Anyway, I just posted a couple of sample cards on my blog and am having a little comment-contest if anyone wants to stop by and maybe end up getting one of my cards in the mail that way. =) You can see them here:

Have fun creating cards...I would love to see some here. SO fun! I kept mine simple...still, handmade is best!

Rachel, I have been working on my valentines. I am really excited about this exchange. It is very exciting. I love your burp cloths. I would love to see them on etsy too. My kids are bigger, but my best friend recently had a baby. Way to go.

a few items are now posted on etsy.com if anyone is still interested in buying. I'll continue to post over the next week as its more efficient to stagger postings.
Thanks for the interest!
