wooden ruler to business card holder

Yeah, yeah. I know. I do this all the time. I get busy and I disappear from blog-land leaving my readers wondering if they should contact the authorities regarding alien abduction…

So, last you heard I was preparing for the first ever Etsy Made Local Market being held in Hobart. It was great fun but exhausting in both the lead-up (getting everything ready for the market) and the market itself.

Now its back to real life and the endless To Do list which I spend my life adding to.

Anyway, back to the market preparations… while getting all the things I needed to take with me sorted, I realised I couldn’t find my business card holder.

Nothing to do but make another one!

I’d seen a business card holder on Pinterest which was made using a ruler…

I had a ruler…

So I made a box.

Ok, its not the strongest box in the word. Its held together with PVA and hope. But its pretty. In fact, I had a lovely lady at the market ask how much it was. She was disappointment when I said it wasn’t for sale.

As you can see, I’m using it to hold my dog grooming business cards, but at the market it held my new Junk4Joy cards:

I had a few different things at the market – my repainted dolls, suncatcher teapots, scrappy creatures, lavender filled hearts and houses as well as random other things I’d made…

It was a very successful market and great fun. Now I’m preparing to do some local markets in the run up to Christmas.

After that I promise I’ll rest a bit. And finish the bathroom. And make a laundry. And rip up the carpet in the living room. And make more stuff…

sigh.

There’s no rest for the creative.
