Day 4

31 days to crafts show

It’s Teach me something Thursday. So this will be a post with two parts. On day 4, Molly talked about business cards. He’s what I came up with, but I think they are very boring. I need to work on them.

business cards 1

On Yarn Obssession, Sedrula posted a really helpful post about what every business card should have. Check it out.

I got a lot of positive feedback on my Enterlac Blanket, so I began another one for the start of my inventory for the craft show.

My son even requested one done in his school’s colors: green and white. I wanted to post a bit of a tutorial as well. I first found out about Enterlac crochet from the book:

But I didn’t really like the way it worked up.

Then I found a really helpful video on Youtube and she linked to a website. Both were really well done, but left out some tips I learned as I was working mine up.

I’ll be posting a tutorial for any who what to follow along.

    Glad you found Molly’s posts helpful. I’m enjoying blogging through them. Right now I don’t have an updated card but I did create one via Vistaprint.

    I like the glossy versions best. I’ll have to read Sedie’s post, she always has great tips.

    I did a small tutorial on entrelac but then found BethinTx’s video tutorial and that was the best I found so far. The entrelac in the master book uses single crochet instead of tunisian if I recall.

    Love the colors for your latest blanket.

      It did use single crochet and it didn’t look as nice as the tunisian, I was a bit scared of the tunisian but it was a lot easier than I thought!. I like Vistaprint, but would Office Max/Depot be about the same cost?
