Had a pretty crazy week at work, but I was glad that all went really well. What made our week even more awesome was that we received an order last week through email asking about our sock whale. We had two whales in stock. The darker blue one is now gone, and the lighter one is waiting for the next person to take it home! Time to make more sock people so that we will be well stocked for the Christmas craft fairs coming up in November 🙂
I have not forgotten about my blog. It’s just that there was a lot of crafting going on, both for myself and for my mom, in the past few months. Our Christmas craft fairs went extremely well this year. Both our sock animals and handmade cards were nearly sold out. It was always great to receive feedbacks during the fair, from people telling us personal stories about how they relate to our crafts to people’s suggestions on what animals they are interested in seeing (someone inquired whether we had a sock sea otter, honestly sea otter is something that never quite came to our minds, but it would definitely be something interesting to add to our collection!), but what makes us even more pleased was that we continued to receive emails after the craft fairs from people who visited our table and showed interest in potentially purchasing more crafts from us in the future.
After the craft shows, we received another order from a best friend of mine who was looking to get gifts for a group of one year olds. She requested eight different sock animals, with each of them child proof (reinforced stitches and no buttons used).
My mom is great at making cats. The smiley brown cat is my favorite 🙂
All nicely packed and ready to go to another loving family.
Thank you for stopping by my blog! Please come back soon. I will be sharing what I have been up to with my paper crafting.
After indulging myself in all the delicious food in Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei, and doing the amount of walking I would have done in two years in Vancouver, I finally got back from my trip last Friday!
I came down with a cold along with my jet-lag, so was completely exhausted in the past week, but here I am now, excited as always preparing for tomorrow (today)’s craft fair at Steveston Community Centre. Our sock animals and cards are all ready to go to other people’s homes for the holiday season. Come by to visit if you are around the area! We will be at 4111 Moncton Street, Richmond, BC from 10am to 4pm.
Yep, we are quite serious about it this time. We got all our business cards printed. Yay!
Hi everyone, I promised to share one more project before I leave on my trip when I will have very limited access to the internet 😦 But anyway, here we go! Part of the gift that I am going to give to my friend who just had a baby girl in the summer is this Sock Monkey and the coordinating Sock Monkey card.
The Sock Monkey Stampin’ Up! stamp set I used to create this card is retired already, but I have to keep using it because I love making cards that coordinate with our handmade sock animals. If you are interested in giving such adorable sock animals + coordinating handmade cards to people for their new babies, birthdays, weddings, even Christmas, and many more occasions that you can think of, please feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to work with you on what you need. I will continue posting more about our sock animals, and just a little safety note about our animals, we can reinforce any sewn-on parts, for example the eyes, to ensure that they are child-proof.
Below is another Sock Monkey card I made for Christmas. Don’t you love that masculine monkey? 🙂
