Last week I messed up. I forgot to take pictures of the diaper cake that I made for my friends' baby shower and the shirt that I had made for my Brother-in-law. So you will just have to trust me that they turned out great and both of them liked their gifts a lot. I have to remember to take pictures of all this stuff so I can post it on here.
Since I can't post those pictures, I'm going to show you the pictures of the girls' bathing suits that I made two weeks ago. I tried to use the bleach method on these swimsuits, but the bleach doesn't work on polyester fibers. Instead I painted the designs on using fabric paint. You cut out the design with the cricut on contact paper and using the negative side, you put it on the swimsuit and paint it with the fabric paint and remove the contact paper stencil. I think they turned out pretty good.
I'm going to try to sell the swimsuits at the Vista Swapmeet this weekend. They are hosting a swapmeet at the Arcadia Senior Center on Saturday June 26th at 1080 Arcadia Way in Vista from 9am-3pm. If I can't sell it there, then I'll bring them to Downtown Live on Saturday June 26th from 6:30-9pm on Grand and Kalmia in Escondido. If you are in the area, I'd love to meet you. Stop by and check out my booth...I'll give you a 10% discount for mentioning that you found out about these events on my blog.
Today is my first day of being full time at Christina's Creations. It has been great being my own boss and not having anyone to tell me what to do. I just hope I can make enough to keep this up. If I can't, my husband is going to make me go back to work. I got until August to figure it out. I really don't want another job, so I'm going to do everything I can to make this work.
With that being said, I better start making some more stuff so that I can sell it at the shows this weekend. Wish me luck. Have a great day and remember anythig is possible if you put your mind to it and trust God that all things are possible through Him.
