So, in the last 4 days I have made 30 plate flowers, 3 bird baths, 19 cement mushrooms, 1 clay pot lighthouse, varnished and sanded a wooden bridge, painted (3 coats) 10 clay pots and made 7 tea cup luminaries.

Whew! Still having fun though!

WOW! I will be expecting some updated photos (when you find time). What are the tea cup luminaries? I have acquired several tea cups for crafts and no one seems to like the birdfeeders around here.

Yes - pics coming soon.

I just put a candle in the tea cup instead of bird seed.

Uh oh - It was 50% off day at GW. I only spent $18, but I came home with a huge box! So I made 5 more bird baths and 8 more small luminaries. Ummmmmm but I kind of want to keep everything I'm making! They are so pretty!
The sale is on Sat., so I only have a few more days to make things.
Oh yeah and I was given 30 new small clay pots today, so I was busy priming them too.

You are amazing. What a woman!
Can't wait to see pics. Would you be willing to share prices too? I need to get rid of some of my glass to make way for mosaic supplies. So I want to make a bunch of plate flowers and try to sell them.

Ooooo the sale is this Sat. I'm getting nervous!
I made some more birdbaths, flowers, clay pots, painted some wooden garden totes, painted more clay pots, painted some rocks, painted some mushrooms, made a blue lighthouse, made some wooden plant labels, painted some plates, made clay pot "bells" TODAY BEFORE WORK. :O

I was sooooo happy to go to work were I can relax.
Oh yeah and I mowed the lawn.

I'm having trouble pricing things too. I want to at least get my materials back, but not price them too high and not sell any. Soooooo I'll let you know when I price them. Probably at midnight tonight or tomorrow evening after I get off of work. *whew* I'm getting a little tired.

Hey all! The plant sale was great - we sold out of 95% of the started plants by 10:30. We opened at 8, so they went fast!
I sold a little bit of everything - a few glass flowers, one bird bath, some mushrooms, some painted pots - the painted rocks, plant markers and tea cup luminaries were the most popular items. I sold a lot of those.
I priced the plate flowers from $10 to $25 dollars. They were more expensive if I really liked them and wanted to keep them - LOL! The $10 ones sold fast.
Next year we plan on advertising a little more, but we couldn't have handled any more customers this year.
It was so windy too! A shelf blew over and broke some of my painted pots :( 5 of our 6 signs blew away too. Oops!
