Last night I got to pondering how to display my wares. I’ve got a little spinning rack, that I had hung my bottles from with tiny clothespins. I like it, but it’s not actually eye-catching, when surrounded by a billion cuter things. I wandered through the house, eyeballing everything, evaluating its potential for displaying my…

Craft table at Chuckey Music Festival!
Speaking of upcoming craft shows, this isn’t a craft show, but there ARE crafts! And excellent bluegrass music, bbq… It’s just $6 to get in, it benefits the Chuckey Ruritan Club, AND it’s inside, so if it rains, no big deal! It’s this Saturday (two days from now! Yikes!) at 4pm, so you don’t even…
Focus Shift – Bottles and Magic
I’ve shifted focus, away from my paper carousels, for a few reasons. Honestly, they need a lot more refinement and visual appeal, and in the past year I’ve been diagnosed with Essential Tremor, which makes it a lot harder to deal with tiny little fiddly bits, like weeding the tiny pieces of cardstock out of…

Paper Calico has a mascot!
With many thanks to Daniel Leach of Snipe Hunt Media, Paper Calico now has an incredibly delightful new mascot image.
Just one preorder slot left!
I have the cutter machine now, and am nearly done perfecting the process and making the instruction sheet and all that jazz. There is one preorder slot left, and I will leave that open until the end of this Friday.
Halloween Carousel Rotation
This is lit with just an LED tea light under the mason jar with tracing paper. I don’t think the mason jar will fit when there’s a whole carousel on a card, but the tea light will by itself. I’m sure you could get a frosted votive cup to put it in, and it will…
Halloween Theme available now!
I got my paper cutter! There are still a few slots left on the preorder promotion, though. I’m still working the kinks out, and I will honor the $18 sale price until all the slots are filled. But oh my goodness, check this out. I am so pleased with the way the Halloween figures turned…
