This is something I have been asking myself for a few weeks now. I love quilting as much as I love making sweets. Last week was our first Craft Fair of the year and boy I was ready. I made 50 lbs of peanut brittle, pecan brittle, jalapeno peanut, and jalapeno pecan brittle. I had all my other items. In the hours from 9am to 4pm I sold out of all brittle. The next sale is June 18 and am working on 90 pounds of mixed brittle. Each batch takes about an hour and it makes 1.5 pounds. I am spending 4 hours every day to get these done.. Nuff grumping. The fairs are so much fun. I love visiting with everyone coming into the booth. The 7 yr old granddaughter wanted to help and I told her she would get paid for working but I would not be buying things for her and she had to keep the complaining to herself. She did great and wants to do it again. She sold some of my Gnomes without even trying.
She named each one of those. A lady was interested in purchasing a set of the larger Gnomes and I told her (red plaid) they were Jerome and Simone. Destiny piped up saying they were not Jerome and Simone. Jerome (yellow plaid) Jerome was at home waiting for me to make Simone. That was Myra and Ira. The lady said she had to buy them because the story was too funny. She was just being her. A day full of fun.
We sold all the gnomes so I better get my fanny in gear and get some more made. I will have most of the sewing done for some tomorrow when Destiny comes over she can help with the beards, and accessories. It is summertime so you gotta have sunglasses and pool fun items.
As of tonight 1/3 the brittle done. I got this. Yes, I will be working on the REAL Simone tonight while watching TV. Everyone have a great day.
As of now I am looking for the wonderful inspirations.
