Welcome to Creative Compulsions Link Up Party #27!
Sunday, we visited an artisan craft fair at one of the local casinos. My purpose was to check out the location and get information about becoming a vendor at a future date. There were very few I would consider true artisans – a couple of ladies with crocheted wares, a woman who made meditation drums out of old propane tanks, and a woman who makes steampunk pins out of old watches. (These pins are absolutely fabulous! I bought one.) But there was absolutely no one selling wire-wrapped jewelry.
The woman with the steampunk pins was very helpful, patiently answering my questions. She told me who to contact and the price of a booth. We have a unique situation here in Las Vegas in regard to artisan fairs. When they are held in casinos, there is a steady stream of new potential customers in the tourists.
I am eager to give this a try, but I need to build up my inventory first.
Now, on to the party!
Creative Compulsions Link Up Party Guidelines
Here is the opportunity to share your creative endeavors – paintings, drawings, afghans, quilts, clothes, jewelry, stained glass, upcycling, etc. The only criteria is that you made it yourself. It doesn’t have to be finished – share during your process and update in the weeks to come. Please share actual projects that you have done or are working on, not just tutorials about what you’d like to do. No recipes please.
You can share anything on the Internet – blogs (mostly what I will be sharing); Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts; pictures; and YouTube videos. The only requirement is that it be of something you’ve created. I will delete entries that don’t adhere to this criteria.
The party opens at 4AM PST on Thursday, and closes at 11:59 PM, Sunday. You may share as many projects as you like during that time. I would appreciate if you would post a link to the blog party when linking in order to spread the love. Please, take a look at what others have shared. We all love receiving comments.
