Handmade U Vendor Night....A Little Glimpse


This is my first time to be a vendor at Handmade U.  Each semester the only vendors have been the teachers, Rachel & Michelle and last semester Pam was also a vendor & let me tell you they have not disappointed.  This semester Rachel is opening it up the to the students as well.  Of course I wanted to jump in on this.  Here is a little sneak peak at some of my offerings.  I'm not bringing a lot because I am flying.  And of course I am not bringing all of the grandeur I would if I were at a normal show....of which I don't do too many anyway.  But it will be humble & nice & I love some of my new things. 


I adore these new vintage stretch bling bracelets.  I have one as well.  It is my GO TO bracelet.  I wear mine ALL the time.  Of course you know me....I am all about the bling.  Every outfit needs the bling....except...my new daily attire...the work out attire.  I don't think Jordan would really dig this bracelet in the gym....umm my planks might get all tangled up in the mat & delay the push ups & that would just delay the punches & so on....so it is not an accessory for just ALL of my outfits anymore.  But I do love this bracelet so very much.


I made these over the spring using my favorite vintage German paper & vintage ledgers.  The combo is just stunning together.  In the center of the butterfly is just the slightest touch of vintage rhinestone.  It gives it just the right touch of sparkle.  I love the little scalloped bubble edge.  It took me a long time to get this right & I think it is so sweet.  You will really like the feel of this piece.  It is nice & chunky.




These are just really fun.  I have oodles of these cuties.  They are just fun little sparklie conversation charms.  They have fun little words on them.  I think they are fun & I hope you all do too.  So this is just a quick little preview.  I do have lot's more but you get the idea.  I can't wait to see you all at Handmade U.....& those of you that can't make it...I seriously hope you consider checking it out for the next semester of classes.  It really is a fun time & we learn so many great things & make so many great friends.  I hope you have a wonderful evening and I send many blessings to each of you.

Everything looks so beautiful and your soldering is always to die for. One of these days I am going to get you to teach me how to perfect my soldering. Yours is always perfect!

Hi there Hope,

It is so funny for me to see my own name in my Gmail inbox; at first I think that the comment is from me.

Congratulations on losing so much! I have lost 18 pounds this year and am working on more.

These are a special treat. I rarely make cinnamon rolls because they are such a great temptation for me. However, I think it is good to enjoy them occasionally. Good thing for me, my family finishes them off very quickly.

Thanks, Hope, for stopping by my blog.

:) Hope

As you know, I can't get enough of seeing the fabulous soldering that you do! Lucky that your craft is easy to transport. I'm sure the girls loved them and scooped them up quicker than you could set them out!
