‘Not Your Mama’s’ Craft Market

I’ve mentioned a couple of times in passing that I’m participating in an event this month.  And it is high time I share with you what and where :)  I was contacted several weeks ago by Chelsey Hill.  She contacted me through my etsy shop and asked if I would be interested in setting up shop at her craft fair, which she is calling ‘Not Your Mama’s’ Craft Market.  Cute name huh?!  And from the line-up she has going it will most definitely not be like any craft show you have been to with your mama 😉

You can go to the ‘Not Your Mama’s’ Craft Market’s facebook page and blog to read more about who and what will be there.  This event takes place in Marysville Ohio.

I am finally acting like I have handmade items to make for this event!  I made a pillow, 6 stockings and some other odds and ends today.  I will also be taking some painted furniture as props.  All props will be for sale :)  I very much dislike shopping where the cool props are NFS.  I plan to have everything in my space for sale.

Here is a sneak peek at one of the pillows I made a couple of weeks ago.  More photos to come later this week of items I’m making for this event.  That is if I have time to blog – lots of sewing to do along with helping a friend paint her kitchen cabinets and another friend with a curtain project :)  Good thing I won’t be getting bored anytime soon!  Stay tuned – I WILL be back!

    Jill- I just love that pillow. NOT YOUR MAMA’S CRAFT SHOW? You mean there won’t be ANY crocheted geraniums or mice with skirt toilet paper covers for the back of the toilet? My! What about BIG STUFFED SHEEP? No? Good- can I come? xo Diana

    I LOVE that you’ll be selling everything in your booth. I think that is BRILLIANT. Seriously. And, that sneak peak at the pillow is not enough. I need to see more of that beauty. You are certain to sell out with your attention to detail, beautiful design and quality craftsmanship.

    And amidst all those projects your Mom wants her pattern worked on!! What timing! Maybe I can squeeze in a few more days of helping with school!

      haha! Mom – I always have stuff going on! Does seem like fall is always really crazy busy. It won’t take long to do what I need to with your pattern – but if you want to help out more with school you know I’d never turn you down! The girls do so much better for you.

    Looks like great stuff and busy times for you. I am going to check out Chelsey’s site, and I look forward to pictures of your creative endeavors!

    Oh, that sounds like a fun show! I’m sure it will be a success-that pillow is fab! (I had to laugh, because I also HATE when you love something in a shop and it’s NFS! :)
    Best of luck!

      :) We were made from the same mold Susan! our likes and dislikes are so alike it’s almost scary! LOL! I will show you a better pic of the pillow soon – it’s one of my favs!

    oh my goodness Jill, I cringe when I think about you looking at my banner. I seriously cannot believe how talented you are. I love your stuff and I wish I could go to your craft fair. Is California too far away? :)

    • says

      Haha – you did an excellent job on your banner! I make them the same way -no need to be cringing!! I’m in Ohio – if you want to hop a plane it’s not too far away to come to the Craft Market! :)
