Colerain High School Craft Show

B.Huey Designs will have a table at this year’s Colerain Booster’s Craft Show. If you haven’t been, this show is huge. It’s a staple of the community craft shows around here, and it’s lots of fun. The show runs on both Saturday and Sunday, and admission is only $1.

This will be my last show of the season! I will have a limited amount of Christmas themed items, as well as NEW creations made with vintage Swarovski pieces. There will be bookmarks, necklaces, and earrings! In a word, there will be sparkle.

Hope to see you there!


May the Craft Season Begin!

My fall craft season kicks off on Sunday, October 27 at the Donauschwaben! I’ve been so busy with author work lately that I haven’t had much time for jewelry making. And I am so excited to be back! Get out the sparklies, because craft show season is upon us!

My first show this year will be at the Donauschwaben, a German heritage center on Dry Ridge Road here in Cincinnati. The show is called Shop with Friends, and it benefits the Donauschwaben Youth and Kinder Dancing Groups. The entry fee is only $2.

Besides Bhuey Designs, there will be vendors, raffles, and food! The show runs from 10-3, and promises to be a lovely day. I do hope you’ll stop by and say hello!


September Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show

Save the date for the September Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show!  I’m really excited to be doing another Avant-Garde show.  I’ve had such fun at the two I’ve done already.  The show is on September 23, 2018, and it runs from 10-5.  We’re at the same location, the Oasis Golf and Conference Center in Loveland.

Admission is $3, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Bake Me Home, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting volunteerism and encouraging shared family experiences for those in crisis.

I’ll be sharing some sneak peaks of new items soon!



Final Preparations

The craft fair is only three days away.  Three days.

Final preparations are under way.  My inventory is set, my PayPal credit card app and swipe thingy is all set to go.  Today we are practicing the table decorations.

It would be accurate to say that I am pretty darn nervous.  There’s the bit about talking to people.  The bit about not knowing the ins and outs of the craft vendor world.  The bit about never having used the dang PayPal card reader.  And of course there’s the bit about making a fool out of myself in front of others.

Wait…what?  Yeah that last one creeps into most things I try.  

But in the interest of my personal happiness, I will POR (press on regardless), and I will show up on Saturday with a smile and a positive attitude.
