Craft Sale

In a few days, I will be setting up a table at a craft sale.  I am getting really excited. It has been a long time since I have done this. What I am worried about is pricing my items properly. I don’t want to undercut myself, but I also don’t want to make my things too expensive. The time it takes to make things and the cost of materials is something that I think about while I’m putting prices on.

I’ve been crocheting and knitting for a long time now and I will be doing both for the foreseeable future. The enjoyment that I get from working with yarn and other materials is stress-free comfort. Feeling the different textures run between my fingers is like no other feeling that I can describe.

If any of you fellow crafters have tips on pricing that you use, please feel free to leave a comment. I would sincerely appreciate any and all ideas that you have. This has been pain in my posterior for a long long time.

Spring Rain

Day 24

I just can’t get in to this prompt. So once again I will go off on my own.

I hope you like it.

Spring Rain (Acrostic)
Spring rain falls down upon the sleepy winter earth

Pulling from the depths of it

Remaining seeds of last autumn’s retreat

Into the sky these seeds reach

No longer restrained by seed coat or cold earth

Gripping firmly to their rebirth in Spring.
Remembering their path of old

Among the tulips so red

If the gardens don’t tell

No secrets are lost in the end.

Batty

Day 17

Batty

The fluttering sound of their wings

Go by in the night with other things

Diving after their dinner

Catching a tasty morsel is a winner

Bats only come out at night

And they dance in a gossamer flight

Their wings are light but strong

Sometimes their night flights are long

The bat swoops down to catch its meal

And in turn it makes you squeal

It comes so near

Do you want to hear

Listen.
