Grand Re-Opening of my Etsy Store!

I have been busy crafing away this Fall, getting prepared for some shows this Holiday Season and
to Re-OPEN my etsy shop! Finally!!!

I was so surprised when I started listing things in my shop just how much the world of etsy has changed in just a few short years. I have definitely bought tons things from so many amazing artists on etsy throughout these years away~ but as a's like a whole new world over there! They have really stepped-up their game. I am impressed with the new listing tools and all of the apps available to sellers. It is inspiring to see just how many amazing crafters and artists are able to make a living selling their items on etsy. I love the seller blogs and all of the helpful hints and tutorials that are available. I can't wait to dive in head first and make the most of all these tools!
I decided to open with some of my favorite new brooches but will soon add a variety of crafty items.

As always, I am happy to be etsy-ing and look forward to meeting a whole new world of great crafters and craft enthusiasts!

Sleepy Hollow Craft Company will be participating in Bazarr Bizarre Cleveland again this year! Last year was such a GREAT show~ seriously, this is the absolute BEST craft show in Northeast Ohio for Holiday shopping. TONS of crafters and a great atmosphere! Plus, with any luck the Dim and Den Sum food truck will make an appearance again- the Best food truck in Cleveland! Stop by and say hello!

OddMall and Bazarr Bizarre Craftyness

Kitschy Crafty Houses
I have been a busy, busy girl getting ready to be a vendor at Bazarr Bizarre this December in Cleveland. I am so, so excited!!!!
I have been working on several projects and I felt a little overwhelmed in the beginning-hearing that over 3000 people attended the 2009 show!
How am I ever going to make enough inventory???
I started off by writing ALL my ideas down in a notebook and gathering TONS of supplies.
When it finally came time to fire up my glue gun and get down to business I found myself going back to my crafty comfort zone= paper crafting.
So I spent a morning making some kitschy little houses... And then after feeling a little more confident I moved onto some new things...
Felt Flower Elastic Headbands
These are just some of the crafty goodies I have been working on for the show.
I have been working so hard~almost daily!
So this Saturday I heard of this AMAZING craft fair that was going on
in Hudson, Ohio called OddMall.
We piled in the car early Saturday morning and made the drive-in snow!!!!!
But I live in Northeast Ohio so I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that :)
Odd Mall was so great. It filled me with INSPIRATION and I couldn't wait to get home and get my craft on!
I wanted to share some of my FABULOUS OddMall purchases...
Bluff'n with my Muff'n!

Muff fabulousness...I have been wanting a muff so hard.
And when I stopped by the Fartsy Artsy booth, I fell in love with this muff!
Casey- who has a WONDERFUL etsy shop, was so cute and sweet- I just had to make it mine :)
You can check out her store here:

Other finds I just couldn't live without...
Vintage Steampunk owl hair clip by Barker's Herbs & Heirlooms
Vintage Ruffle Necklace by Autumn's Antics
Smoking Hot Fairy Ornament by Very Merry Fairies

I hear that OddMall is also in the Spring...I can't wait to attend!!!
Also, Come and visit me at Bazaar Bizarre in Cleveland :)
There are actually 2 shows, a West side and an East side show.
I will be vending at the WEST side show, the larger of the 2.

tHey'LL be MagicAL...sO FanTaSTIcaL...

"Deer Me, You've Got me Going in Circles"
Kitschy Vintage Cupcake Pick
I spent most of this weekend crafting..crafting hard.
I am really hoping to be a vendor at The Bazaar Bizarre in Cleveland this December so I thought I would work on some prototypes..and seriously these little girls' have been pictured in my mind for I had to make them happen.

Deer "Dear...You're my Prize" Badges.
These deer prize badges were a "mistake" gone right.
I had a different vision entirely as I spent hours cutting out TONS of deers...but I just
love the way they came out.
After FINALLY going through the MASS of boxes of crafty elements that I have stacked in
my basement I stumbled upon this big bag of vintage velvet ribbon
I had bought in a thrift store long, long ago.
I decided they needed to come out of their dingy plastic bag..they look so much happier now being a part of these :)

Ladies in Waiting...

On Saturday I spent a chilly morning scouring the flea market
for cabinet cards and buttons...just as the skies opened up
and the rain drops started falling, I hit
the jackpot and found "my" booth ~ full of all my favorite things...
I helped the lady who was running the booth pack as much stuff away
in her truck as we could as the rain fell. She was very sweet and we chatted
during the showers huddled amongst all her treasures in the cab of her truck
...we went through literally PILES of cabinet cards.
We passed the time making up so many funny stories about the strangers in the photos~wondering...wondering...
when I told her of my plan to give them antlers and masks..
and make them something new and beautiful
she was so sweet and gave me quite the deal..and a big hug.
So when the sun started shining again- I had my "Ladies in Waiting"..and a new flea market friend :) I'd say it was a good day at the flea market.

A Great Crafty Discovery....Yo-Yo Makers!!!
I was over the moon when I found some easy Yo-Yo makers
at JoAnn's this summer. They run about $5-$8 per yo-yo template-
they are so easy to use and I am loving each little one!
I have so many ideas for these cute little yo-yo's..oh the
brooches and hair pins I will make :)
Cute as a Button
One of my favorite things to find while flea marketing is a GIANT jar of buttons...
because 9 times out of 10 after you bring it home and go through the contents
of these treasure find much, much more than
mere buttons. This time it was glass vile's of seed beads, arrow heads- and I think
a tooth lol lol. $5 turned into magic...and the old Ball Jar is pretty fantastical too!

And now on to the Fall Fashion Finds...
as an avid devour-er of all things BUST magazine has to offer...I have
been a fan of Sock Dreams forever...a long time advertiser in my favorite mag.
These leg warmers just look so WARM and adorable...
and as our weather here gets chilly I couldn't resist...
So these are the leg warmers I've decided upon...
Haven't purchased these yet..but they are as good as mine, I
mean a girl has to have goals, right?
...and these are the leg warmers that are on their way to me...
NE Ohio Lake Effect give me your best!
The rain, sleet, snow...
I'm ready for ya!

Happy Crafting...
