Buy a Flower from me?

That is right, from me, not for me :) Although I do love flowers (hint hint husband that never reads my blog. :) )

So how do you put a price on art?

Yesterday I was at the Paper Tales "Junque and Trunk" show and it was very fun! It was successful too! Jackie B went and staked us out a great spot on Friday by the back door and after hauling a ton of stuff there, I settled in a for a day for selling. And it was so fun! of course it was because I am a happy people and I make my own fun!



I met a ton of great people, talked about Scrapbook Royalty and sold some of my handmade works of heart!

I also took the time to make some more flowers while I was there. I had prepped them the night before, and was just sewing and adding the centers. It was really fun! I'm way to A.D.D. to just stand there and sell stuff! I have to be doing something else at the same time!

Soooooo.... back to pricing my art. I really have no idea how much I should be selling stuff for. I ask people and really, it is so subjective. I find myself just taking the answer that i like best! There were a few people there selling handmade flowers and they were all priced higher than mine. They were all different of course so really subjective!

Anyway, I am selling my flowers for $4 for the small ones and $5 for the larger ones. If you like them and want to own one.... email me which you like best and I will ship as many as you like to you for $1 shipping charge. I sold a bunch of these at CHA (I am pretty sure Jenni Bowlin's whole booth got one) It is so fun to have people like what you have made!I know these photos are not great of the flowers... I will try to do a post just of flower pics and get close up.

I TAKE CREDIT CARDS :)

I always donate 20% of my sales to Scrapbook Royalty.

I will be making more :) so keep and eye out!Here are some photos of yesterday's fun...


This is a view of the room and Deena a friend I met through Stephanie Ackerman. She is sooo sweet and donted a bunch of stamps at the end to SBR.

Nice to see you at the Junque and Trunk show on Saturday. It was so hard to decide what to buy at your booth! So many fun & cute things. I especially loved the flowers (as did my little one).
