Upcycling kick

Hi evryone, as most of you know I don't sew and wanted some brown bunnies.. I found 2 white ones at the thrift store.
I purchased some dark bown liquid dye (used half a bottle) and soaked them in a bucket. The picture of them soaking in the bucket won't load here's what they now look like

Now they are Pretty & Primmy! They have their original clothes on not bad for $2.50 a bunny and $3.00 for the dye but only used half a bottle. I'm really into upcyling more to come.

Please Help

Hi, I thought I'd ask bloggers if they know of a place that I can get pipberries online at a reasonable price? I have tried 2 places (online) and have been very disappointed. I have no stores around that carry them. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Crow shelve

While doing a yardsale/craft show the other weekend I saw an unfinished wood shelf for $2.00. I can't paint so what I did was base coat it (white) then I took my crow cookie cutter and with a sharpie outlined the crows then filled it in with paint pens. It looked too plain so I glued on

Pip berries for color. Forthe wording its stickers and then sealed with varnish.

Consignment sales update

Hi, I'm very excited that my dough ornies are a hit. I dropped off like 7 at a consignment store 2 weeks ago and when I recieved the check in the mail they had sold 5 (the ones without skillets didn't sell). Always exciting to know that new products are a hit. I think I'm pricing stuff to low with skillet I was only asking $4.35 then they take 30 percent. I will up them to $4.75 and see what happens. I dont have much in them (the skillets were way cheap) but I live in a small area and not really that confident I can get more, rather make a little then have them not sell. What to you all think I should ask for them? See pictures on other post thanks.

Show results

I did a show today for project Grad (we just rented a booth) all the crafters were suppose to be in the lower gym,then the upper gym suppose to be yard sale. There wasn't enough vendors so the yardsale was one half the crafters the other. Crafters didn't make out well (at all)everyone wanted indoor yardsale. Lucky for me a had one table with yardsale stuff d (with crafts) so I got my booth fee back in sales at least. I really dislike doing shows this way I would love to just do consignments but I need the exposure and it was great to meet new people and they were very helpful carrying stuff for you (hard to believe). The weather was crappy but it was for a wonderful cause and I can deduct it on my taxes...
