Summertime Gift Shop Inventory

This is the beginning of the inventory building for upcoming shop sales and bazaars.  Starting in July I will be putting some of my crafts for sale in a gift shop at a local Lavender Farm. 
I posted about the farm here last year.


I am finding lots of joy in creating for seasons other than Christmas which I have done the most of in the past.   I've got some really cute ideas rolling around in my head for summer projects.  Check back soon, I will be posting more as I get them finished.

After taking off a couple of months from crafting I recently got motivated to get some projects going.
Inviting friends to join me is always fun, way more laughs and conversation than going solo when crafting.
My friends Debbie and Denise joined me in making these cute spring time plaques.

I actually had the wood cutouts for these cute roosters for a couple of years but had put them in a drawer and promptly forgot all about them.  Fellow blogger Vicki Johnson Hansen from Green Eyed Girl Crafts sent them to me from a shop in the town where she lives.  With some scrapbook paper, glue, paint and glitter I brought them to life.   Aren't they adorable?
I was inspired by a pin on Pinterest to make these wood Easter eggs.  I got some wood in the garage and set about to cut them on my scroll saw. 

You can never go wrong with this saying.  This is going into my inventory for a lavender farm gift shop this summer.

Last Saturday I got together once again with some of my favorite friends to work on these Easter signs.  We also had a couple of ladies who didn't make the projects but joined us in the conversation, fun and laughter.
I love crafting and I love my friends, I am blessed to have them in my life.  Thanks Carol, Elaine, Kathy, Debbie, Natasha (daughter) and Shawn for a great time.
