22nd Annual Temecula United Methodist Church Craft Faire Recap

The 22nd Annual Temecula United Methodist Church Craft Faire was amazing yesterday!๐Ÿ˜€ย Thanks to all the TUMC volunteers and staff. You are an awesome group!

If you stopped by our booth, thank you!โ˜บ๏ธ

It was my very first craft fair as a vendor, and I was was glad to have my sister, Mary, who just started her own business, Mamoo’s Craft Studio, sharing a booth with me.๐Ÿ˜Š

Share just a few photos. We were busy setting up and greeting visitors, making sales too ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lots of great positive feedback from visitors, made some sales, and collected other vendor contacts for networking.

Just a few photos to share from the event.

I’ll be listing items on my Etsy Store and DesignWishesbyPamela Shop.

See the link below to access both.


Still Here Designing and Creating

My focus these last several weeks is preparing for the 22nd Annual Temecula United Methodist Church Craft Faire (see previous post). Pretty excited because this will be my very first craft fair as a vendor!


Since TUMC requires photos prior to approving vendor applications for the event, I was equally excited that the committee gave a nod to my handmade items.

This event will showcase mainly jewelry pieces, however, I will have a few albums and mixed media designs on display and for sale.

Items that do not sell at the craft fair will be listed in my blog Jewelry and Craft shops and on Etsy.

If you are in the area, please do stop by, I would love to meet you.

In addition to preparing for the craft fair, I am working on a tutorial for the “12 Days of Christmas” Swivel Display (see previous post). I hope to have the tutorial uploaded to my YouTube channel soon.

Thanks for your continued support!

Craft Fair News!

Super excited to announce that DesignWishesbyPamela will be a vendor at the 22nd Annual Temecula (California) United Methodist Church Craft Faire!

If you are in the Temecula area on October 19th, please stop by. You will have an opportunity to see some of my posted paper craft and mixed media designs as well as hand beaded jewelry at the fair.

Equally excited to announce that my sister (Mamoo’s Craft Studio) will be showcasing her kinetic paper designs in the same booth!


Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas – Swivel Display Box


A while back a previewed my latest holiday project. I am finally getting around to posting the walk through video. Been busy designing new projects and doing some bead work.

I simply love this project design! It is such a unique way to display photos, keepsakes, holiday treats, and so much more!

Once again, I used the very elegant and festive holiday paper collection “Twelve Days of Christmas” from Graphic 45. I used the rich paint color “Red Wine” from Art Alchemy, and gold metallic paint from Liquitex. Elizabeth Craft Design dies add three dimensional holiday embellishments to finish of this project.

I hope you enjoy this video walk through. You can follow me on my social media accounts, blog, YouTube channel,ย  and Etsy Store through the link at the end of the video.

Thanks for watching.


Returning from Vacation – First Design Project Preview

Getting back to paper crafting after returning from vacation. I hope everyone joined their vacation ๐Ÿ˜Žand look forward to reviewing what I missed on the posts.
Just finished this project design using the festive holiday collection “Twelve Days of Christmas” from Graphic 45.
I look forward to sharing a full video walk through on this project in the coming days, so stay tuned on my YouTube channel or blog.


Been on vacation this week. Good time to be with friends and family. Time to design new projects and find inspiration.

Must admit, looking forward to returning home to complete a design project I started before we left on our Kauai adventure.๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒด

Hope your summer is filled with adventure, family and friends.

#G45TravelJournal – Tropical Travelogue Mini Journal

I designed and created this mini travel journal for this month’s Graphic 45 Challenge, #G45TravelJournal. I also made the travel journal for a trip I will be taking in a few days to the islands. Perfect timing, right?


I used the oh so tropical!, Tropical Travelogue paper collection from Graphic 45. I had previously designed a mini album for our first island vacation with this collection and had a few bits left to put this travel journal together.

The journal is approximately 4.25″ X 6.25″ and is gatefold style.

The base for the journal is made of Kratex. Love this product! Very durable and great for the journal as it will be opened and closed many times.
