Birth of Dogwood Designs

Posted by on November 19, 2013

IMG_5814Last weekend we participated in our first Craft Show. It was a small one that a friend had organized near our home. Seemed a long shot that we would be able to find enough to show, but in the end we decided to go for it. I made some crocheted items, the older girls made potholders/coasters and scarves. Also on display were some lovely lip balms and lotion bars.IMG_5821

The night before the show, as I was working on tagging all the items, I was trying to design labels for things and Lars suggested “dogwood” being in the name. So we found clip art of a dogwood flower and thus, Dogwood Designs was born. We figure that it will work well for our crafting: crochet, tatting, weaving, woodworking; as well as Lars’s web app work. Perfect.IMG_5825

More on Dogwood Designs and photos in future posts. Maybe we will even get an Etsy store set up someday!

PS: Having done a web search, I see several other “Dogwood Designs.” Hmmm…not too surprising, but we will have to see if we can make it original. Any suggestions?

    Love the lip balm you made! Do you sell it? If so, please let me know if you do, and how much? I highly recommend it to anyone looking for all-natural ingredients!

      Thanks, Amy!
      Glad you like it. I like it too. I will email you about cost. The craft show was my first attempt at selling it. 🙂 I’m thinking more seriously about setting up an Etsy store or something like that. We shall see.
