I have officially declared this month "Craftober". It will be followed by "$alevember" which, in turn, shall be followed by "Crochember". The last two I will deal with later; our focus right now is Craftober. Focus, focus, focus!
"What is this Craftober thing all about?" Well, Craftober is all about crafts (duh). To be more specific, it is all about making the 757987 crafty things that are needed for the month of $alevember (aka Mama-needs-a-new-pair-of-shoes and/or pay-the-mortgage). My goal for the next 4 weeks or so is to do something crafty each and every day. No matter what.
I still have to work out the exact details regarding what I'm making and how much of everything I will need for the sales, but that will happen once I have all of my sales confirmed. For now, though, let's see how I'm doing:

Oct 2 - 28 domino pendant bases, glued and trimmed
