I have been working on conventions since 1999, which I know
is not a long time compared to some. I have been working on ArmadilloCon since
1999 doing a number of different roles, publicity, program book, guest liaison.
My favorite job, which I do every year, is making gift baskets for the convention.
Making gift baskets you say?!? Well you would be suprised how
much people like getting the baskets. They are fun to make with quite
a number of fun interesting stuff every year. Some of the things included:
soap, handmade armadillo fabric, wine charms, origami armadillos, convention
pins, and of course the non handmade bits, books by other author guests,
tshirts, beer, snacks, and the list goes on.
Another thing I like to make is pins for the guests. These have
been made from a number of different things, air dry clay, polymer clay, shrink
plastic, and bottle caps and resin.
This page is for the many projects I have created for our local
convention. Hopefully you can take some of these ideas and use them to make
your own convention goodies.
