greyhound picnic and what I have been doing

This past Saturday was the annual picnic and fundraiser for Chinook Winds - the local greyhound rescue group I have been volunteering with.  I was invited to set up a table with the other vendors and sell my merchandise.  So, for the last few weeks, I was madly beading trying to get enough collars and jewelry decorated with greyhound/dog charms completed.  I received lots of positive comments, but sales were not quite as high as I had hoped (talking to the organizers after, all the vendors had lower sales this year.. sign of the times I guess).  I did give out several cards, so hopefully, it will lead to future sales. 
Here are some pics:



cell phone / backpack charms


  1. WOW you were busy beading Karen, I love the argile ones. The cell phone and backpack charms are neatO. I hope you sold at least one of the bracelets or collars.

  2. Thanks Therese! Those are all dog collars actually. I did manage to sell 2 of them, the dragonfly one and the bow tie one, as well as about 1/2 dozen charms, and a couple pairs of earrings.
