It's still new, and I'm still working on it. I hope to add more features soon. Please stop by! I'd love to know what you think.

Owl Earrings for Chi Omega

About a couple weeks ago, I completed an order of owl earrings that will be given out in the fall to new Chi Omegas at a nearby college campus. I personalized the order by using the sorority's colors for the cards. They each say "Chi O thinks you're a hoot!"

I sure hope the girls like them!

And, if you are interested in a bulk order of owl earrings, please contact me for discounts. Items can be personalized for any event!

Etsy Shop Feature: One of a Kind, Handmade Books!

I absolutely love the handmade and upcycled books in ConduitPress's shop. Each book is made with love and different than any other book you will find. The books are in local stores in Bloomington, Indiana or online in the etsy shop. This is the perfect place to shop for someone who likes to journal or sketch. Take a look at some of these great items!

This little journal would be super handy to jot down notes.

Love the cover of this journal, and each page has creative quotes.

The perfect hiding place.

So many things to love in this shop! Check out the blog to stay up to date with ConduitPress, read about etsy artists, and hear about craft shows. And stop by the facebook and twitter pages.

Craft Fair Photos!

On Saturday, I participated in my first craft fair, and it was a success. Of course, I have some things I can improve next time, but overall it was a great experience. I took items from both of my shops, but earrings were by far my best sellers. The day was scorching hot... until a rain shower came in. Fortunately I was able to cover my table, and the rain stopped after about ten minutes. I even made a sell during the storm to a little girl who spotted some earrings she likes earlier! The rain did cool everything off for a short time. Next time, I hope to have some sort of covering over my booth... either a tent or umbrella.

Here are a couple of photos from the event...

I used shutters to hold my earrings. That was a tip I got when I was preparing for the show, and it worked out great!
