So one day I started collecting corks and empty wine bottles. Why? I didn’t know at the time. Fast forward a few years later and lots of moves with the zillion of wine bottles and corks collected I finally find things to do with them. My go to site is Pinterest. I have found a plethora of crafts using wine bottles and/or corks. Something I found that I liked very much and had everything on hand was a key chain.
And there you have it. I used beads and links and charms, lots of glue since the cork had a corkscrew sized hole running most it’s length. That one pictured was my very first one I made. I picked out the nicest corks, most have designs on them or the winemaker’s name or label name. I made 3 of these and hung them on my memo board to admire. Then one day I come across a post on Facebook by a local business.
Canvas Uncorked newly opened and was searching for items to sell in the shop. I quickly met the owner (she’s fabulous, by the way) and I added 10 key chains to her inventory. If you’re ever in Parker, CO please visit the shop and say hi to Josie the dog for me.
So now I started something that I never dreamed to do. I actually have something for sell in a shop, and selling! What I did next is make a business card and set up an Etsy shop to help with more sales.
And of course I started a Facebook page. And here I am blogging about it all! Next time I will write about my next adventure in craft and the mystery of vinyl cutting! Thanks for reading me!
