I've been doing a lot of crafting lately. Like, A LOT of crafting. Maybe more than one person should be doing. I've been making lots of new goodies for my shop, Cottage Industry, like embroidery hoop art and pin cushions to sell this weekend at an event I'm a vendor at, The Na-Da Farm Barn Sale.
I spent months making things for my shop and then to my HUGE surprise most of it all sold! Then, I was in a pickle...within 2 weeks I had to whip up more goods to sell at the barn sale, hence the mad crafting that's been going on here. I'm definitely losing my crafty mind because it wasn't until I finished this, did I realize I had the fabric upside down!
I mean, what level of crazy are you at when you are literally staring at your project while working and you don't see this?! There goes and hour I'll never get back. Definitely NOT a happy day.
Immediately after I realized this project was hopeless, I decided to go out into the garden and take my frustrations out on some weeds! See, this is why it's good to have a garden. You use whatever trusty garden tool you like to pull up weeds and you can just go crazy whacking and yelling at them! But, if you really want to get your stress out, I suggest getting your spade shovel and trenching your borders or better yet, make new borders. Yep, that's just what I did after my embroidery craft fail. I worked my butt off in that garden for 1 hour and my craft disaster became a thing of the past AND my garden was looking good I must say.
And that's my 2 cents on crafting and gardening today. Anyone else having a craft meltdown/fail? Getting garden therapy?
Here's the details on the barn sale should you be in or around IL, it's worth the trip!
There will be lots of pretty vintage and handmade for sale, as well as yummy baked goods made by Anne-Marie, who owns the farm. You can visit nadafarmlife.org/events for all the details.

In spite of my stress in getting everything ready for this sale, I'm really excited about selling there again, and I hope to see some of you there! I'll be in the barn under my shop name, "Cottage Industry". Come Shop, Relax, Have A Cupcake.
