Shop, Design, Promote - Oh My!!

September has arrived! Let the fall craft shows and fairs begin!! But wait, I'm not ready yet.... Good thing my first show isn't until Saturday, September 25th. Caty Ann's Creations will be participating in the Fall Craft Fair at the East Mulberry Street Gift Cottage, 847 East Mulberry Street, in Bryan, Ohio that day.

But first things first - let's not get the cart before the horse. New fall items need to be added to my inventory and that means SHOPPING. Bless my darling hubby for taking me to the city three times last month to stock up on supplies. We usually shop JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's. Just look what I came home with the last trip.

I brought these home from Hobby Lobby...

School charms for book bags, zipper pulls or key chains are on the agenda to finish before the 25th. These sell for $9.00 each and shipping is free. Already have some finished in scarlet and gray for OSU and purple and gold for the Bryan Bears as well as burgundy and gold for the Edgerton Bulldogs. I can also make these to order. Just leave a comment on this post with the school colors and mascot name. Be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you.

These beads came home with me from JoAnn's...

And this is my Michael's stash...

Beautiful breast cancer awareness purse charms have already been designed with some of those sparkling pink beads. And I've already designed (and sold) a pair of earrings from charms I bought at Michaels!

You can check out all my new items at the following online stores:

Be sure to check back often as I plan to be adding many new items in the coming days and weeks. And remember it's not too soon to start thinking about Christmas!!!

Oh, I almost forgot...Caty Ann's Creations has been on Zibbet for one year now! Do I hear a "Hip-Hip-Hooray"??? To celebrate our first anniversary, everything in the shop is on sale for 10% off - no coupon code required. Hurry on over and look around!!
