Something I've dreamed about since I started up my little handmade shop. A dream I've worked hard for. A dream, that's been waylaid and pushed aside because of pregnancies, caring for small children, moving and simply not enough time in the day, has finally become a reality!
As of this week, my items are being sold in a real brick and mortar shop!
While I love selling my crafts on Etsy, I've always really enjoyed the craft show scene more. But, it's hard for me to do more than a few a year. The craft show circuit is definitely a time consuming ordeal! The idea of selling in a store popped into my head over a year ago. I checked out a few local shops while we were living in Texas, but I was never able to find a perfect fit.
Fast forward to last month. The cutest, local boutique store was looking for more vendors. They loved the items in my shop and that was that. The Heart Ville Boutique is located in quaint, historic, downtown Hartville, Ohio. All of their goods are handmade by over 35 local artisans. There is seriously something for EVERYONE at this shop. I'm beyond excited to be a part of their team!
Here's just a little peak at a few of the things I have for sale right now....
If you're a local, be sure to stop on in! I guarantee you'll love this little piece of handmade heaven. :)
Two summers ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Haven Conference. A few days before leaving, I had discovered that I was pregnant with our third child! I was over the moon excited with my little secret. :) While at the conference, I found this beautiful, gold house number that Southern Accents had salvaged from an old home that was being demolished. I immediately snagged it up and it's been kept safely in a drawer these last few years, just waiting to be used for something.
Yesterday, I finally found a home for my lucky number five! I absolutely love how this shadow box art turned out. And the best part is, it took me less than an hour to create! :)
The supplies I started off with included a shadow box Ribba frame from IKEA, two pieces of coordinating fabric that I had on hand and the house number. Other items I ended up using were tape, hot glue, scissors, embroidery thread and an embroidery needle.
I started by wrapping the mat inside of the frame with my yellow fabric. For whatever reason, the hot glue did not adhere the fabric well to the mat, so I ended up using scotch tape. And it worked! Score!
Next, I taped/glued the patterned fabric into the picture hole of the mat. The number looked rather plain inside, so I applied strips of the patterned fabric to the top of the yellow fabric with hot glue. Then I used embroidery thread to attach the number to the patterned fabric. Finally, I glued the mat to the cardboard piece that slides into the back of the frame. It stabilized the number really well.
And that, folks, was it! This was such a easy project and the end result is just gorgeous!
Right now, it's sitting pretty on an end table in our living room. But, once my gallery wall is finished, it will have a place of honor there instead. :)
Don't you just love easy, meaningful projects that can be created with items you all ready have in your home? I sure do!
