Behind the Scenes: Preparing for BlytheCon


In early August I took a trip to Seattle, WA to be a vendor at BlytheCon 2014. I spent most of June and July preparing for the show. There was lots of casting, cutting, sewing and building.

I had documented some of it over on Instagram and thought it would be neat to put it all together here on the blog.

The show itself was sort of a bust (I’ll talk more about that later) but the trip was great! I can’t wait to share more.

 Also, if you are new here and would like to keep up on all the new projects I will be posting then please add me on BlogLovin!

Donuts and Glitter

I was prepping and unpacking a bunch of my new supplies today, when I felt the need to photograph some of them! These are all supplies to be used in my next batch of plastic pieces, even the little donuts I found! How cute are they?!? I have this new love for glitter, and I can’t wait to use them all!

I am planning on casting again next week, as long as everything falls into place. I have a few new designs in the works, plus some modified versions from the last batch (medium sized arrows anyone?). I’m excited!

Behind The Scenes: Preparing for Crafty Bastards 2012

Above is a photo of some of the tools and supplies I will be using today. I will also be using scissors, a large paper cutter, a table saw, a drill, a dremel, a hammer and some nails. Whew.

I’m still running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. This is the first show I’ve done with all my new pieces, so mass assembling, packaging and displays are all new to me again. Today is dedicated to putting chain on all the new necklaces, packaging them and assembling all the display pieces I cut out. I’m very happy with how everything is coming out, and I can’t wait to show you guys the fruit of my labor!!
