Sleep is Overrated!

So, let it be known that I am a horrible blogger!! I have been so busy with my first craft show, keeping up my etsy inventory and custom orders that I have not had a chance to update. But I always feel better when I blog... so here I am....

The first craft show was.... interesting. I was very happy with my booth set up. All the ideas I had in my head came together nicely on the day. Very valuable lesson learned is that the wind is an evil, evil skank. It was such a windy day and it took its toll for sure. At one point my tent took flight and my displays hit the ground. And I didn't even cry! Sales were ok. Traffic was not great, but I made my booth fee and little extra. People seemed to really like my stuff and it was great to get some feedback face to face. I really enjoyed talking to people while I held onto my flying nun of a tent all day. I have another show coming up on June 5 and I can only hope that all I learned will make show number two better.

Hope you all are well!


  1. Congrats to you on a successful craft fair! Your booth looked wonderful.

  2. The booth looks great from the pic! And, sales were good if you covered your costs and made some extra. This was your first show, you did well. =)

  3. Thanks! I have my second show coming up this Saturday. Hoping to improve on what I learned at the first show and make some dough!
