Day Two: Skip A Few

So yeah. Instead of posting everyday, I sort of got buy (in eating, sleeping, watching reruns) and basically going away to a place where the expo wont be happening for a lonnnnng time. I am out of that place now (thank God) and am getting down to work! This is going to be a one day exhibition, but I want to be prepared.

Here is my desired inventory list: (with pictures! Yay!)

PHONE POUCHES~

1. Mustache Man phone pouch x10
2. Rainbow phone pouches x10
3. Black pouches with hearts x10
4. White pouches with Bows x10
5. Doilie phone pouches x5

So thats a total of 45 phone pouches. I have some sample phone pouches of various designs lying around too, for example an owl phone pouch and a panda phone pouch, but I’m not going to make multiple of those. People can order them if they so please. [45]

EARRINGS~

1. Doilie earrings x10
2. Spiderweb earrings x5
3. Puffy flower earrings x10

Thats 15 pairs of earrings which means 30 individual pieces. [75]

BEANIES~

Aha! The most time consuming thing. :3 Sadly since we cannot make minions or anything that has been copyrighted (basically they want you to be original), I wont be having those babies. BUT we do have the following:

1. Cupcake beanies x3
2. Owl beanies x3
3. Plain beanies with snowflakes x2
4. Multicolored beanies with HUGE pompoms x2
5. Puffy beanie with a pompom x2

Why so less of the beanies you may ask? Even though they’re going to be a total of 12 beanies — and one beanie takes from four to eight hours — I will be having MANY other designs that I’m not going to be mass producing. Why is that? Because they all take so much time! And theres no assurance that they’ll even sell. So. Why waste time when you can show off one beanie/beret as a sample and take orders for it if people seem interested? :3 [87]

SLIPPERS/BABY BOOTIES~

1. Adult slippers (plain) x3
2. Bunny rabbit booties x3
3. Converse booties x3
4. Bow booties x2
5. Flower booties x2

Another pricey item that people tend not to spend on. Sigh. [100]

MUG WARMERS/COASTERS~

1. Sugarlocked and Moriartea x1 (only for orders)
2. Granny square warmers x3
3. Coaster sets (a set of four) x3

Thats 16 right there. Oh my God. This will not be possible in ten days. Not. At. All. [116]

DOILIE HANDBAGS~

Well, no subcategories here. I wont be having clutches or anything else, just these doilie handbags I make. They’ll have wooden handles and a velvet base with a huge crocheted doilie sewn on it. 🙂 So I’m hoping to make 3 more of these. [119]

WIRE PENDANTS~

Aside from crochet, I make necklaces with wire pendants of any word, phrase or shape that you want. Not everything, but basic to semi-complicated I can handle. Only problem is, my fingers hurt so much after making them. I swear. Anyway.

1. Words (love, hope, grace, etc) x15
2. Shapes (hearts, snails, deathly hallows, etc) x10
3. Beaded spirals x10

That brings our total up to [154].

OTHERS~

Now theres a ton of other things that I could have here:

-pillow covers
-amigurumi dolls and teddybears
-a granny square blanket
-scarves

But truth be told, I just dont have the time. You never really do, for craft shows. And this isnt even the tip of the iceburg. I have yet to get the business cards printed, the stall decor made (bunting, lots of it), the envelopes and bags with the logo on it, the price tags cut out and stuck on. THEN theres the catalog that we’re getting made for people to flip through and find the minion. :3

I will have samples there, of scarves and dolls and whatnot. Wont be selling them, though. I have this thing where I tend not to sell my firsts. :3 They also come in handy later for figuring out the pattern of something since I often do stuff freehand, not following patterns, and forget what I did. Soooo yeah. A sentimental reason as well as a practical one, yay!

Anyway. Onto the schedule now. Hmm.

Shall have that up by tonight. Stay tuned (if you havent dozed off yet)! :p

Day One: Getting Our Head In The Game

Hello all!

 
See, this time I took a much longer break than the 24-hour thing I had started doing. That is mainly due to the fact that I *drumroll* went to do an internship! It was one month long, I was an art teacher to kindergarten up to second graders anddddd it taught me a lot. So many fake smiles, diplomatic answers, politics, and the WORK. Woah, did they pile that on. And oh, lets not forget the kids. -_- I do not remember having THAT much energy. Honestly. Stark contrast to who I have become today. Quiet (unless you bother me/annoy me and hence force me to scream at you), keeping to myself (unless I like you*), not liking interactions or fake smiles or diplomacy.
 
One would ponder why I MUN at all. One of the mysteries of life, I guess.
 
SO ANYWAY. Schools are a place of learning, and boy did I learn. Another thing I learned was that this internship could not have came at a worse time. An entire month wasted in the pursuit of writing down a small “did an internship for one month as an art teacher” on my CV. Really. Like thats going to get me somewhere. on the other hand, if I had crocheted for the entire month, we might actually be somewhere on the stock front.
 
So far we have about 5 pouches each of the rainbow pouches, mustache man pouches, black heart pouches, white bow pouches. I’m thinking to make some detailed owl pouches too. Maybe like, three at most. Lets see if people buy them at all. Maybe a couple of Panda pouches too?
 
Anyway. This is going to be a series documenting the final two weeks of prep for the expo. Hopefully this will keep me organized, and help out a couple of people figure out what to do/what not to do when prepping for an exhibition. :3
 
So today I made another beanie. Its not to be sold though, this one will be a sample piece to take orders. Aside from that, I doubt I’ll be able to make my blanket by the expo, which will be sad.

BUT YOU KNOW SOMETHING IM NOTICING? Whether it be Breaking Bad or F.R.I.E.N.D.S or Big Bang Theory, EVERYONE has crocheted afghans and cushion covers! It gives much such a high to see people having crocheted stuff on shows. :’)

 
Going to go make my inventory list now. Tata!
