Library Holiday Craft Fair is a Go!

By S.Galeana

Exciting news! Michelle and I just found out that we are now vendors at the Library Holiday Craft Fair taking place November 8th and 9th!  This Holiday Craft Fair is an annual Coeur d'Alene Public Library event featuring artisans from Northern Idaho.  Cutoff Crafts is ecstatic to have a booth!

So what exactly does all of this mean? It means that everyone will be able to meet us at this location and check out what we have created!  We will have jewelry (earrings, bracelets, necklaces, etc), home decor items, toys, gifts, amigurumi, crochet flowers, and so much more!

If you wish to attend come to the Coeur d'Alene Public Library on Nov. 8 or 9 between the hours of 10am and 5pm.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone and sharing our love of crafting. In fact, it might be so much fun that we will probably get the, "Shhhh, this is a Library."

Our other events can be found on our event excited!

Cutoff Crafts and Crafting Goodness

Crunch, grind, smash, bang-bang-bang. Don’t mind the noise. Sandra is working on the website. It’s supposed to sound like that, I swear. Good morning everyone! My name is Michelle and I shall be your jeweler today. Unless I get bored, than I shall be your calligrapher. But I’ll never be a decent plumber. It’s quite tragic.

What is Cutoff Crafts and what are we up to? Cutoff Crafts is a way to bring crafty-goodness into your life. It’s a store full of all the weird, crazy, beautiful things Sandra and I can make. It’s a blog where you can follow along as we hurtle forwards on this journey of creativity. It’s a calendar that provides the whens and wheres of our next craft-explosions in the real world. Finally, it is always a place where you can drop us a line. The contact form is right over: here.

We have just received final confirmation for the Idaho holiday craft fairs in Post Falls (Nov 2nd), Coeur d’Alene (Nov 9th), and Ponderay (Nov 16th-17th). November is going to be a busy month! Check out our Event page where you can keep up to date on the latest, greatest, news.

On to the crafting goodness! I have a new project that I am currently working on. (This happens pretty frequently. I don’t think I ever met a project I didn’t like.) Anyways! I often work with tiny, little, beads that are called “seed beads.” Normally, I use these in a fairly typical fashion to make jewelry. Today, I am using them in a distinctly different way. I am writing inspirational messages with them. This is brand new territory and I have no idea how it will turn out. If it turns out as awesome as I hope, I shall be following up with a full tutorial. Keep your eyes peeled.
