And the show goes on

So how did my first show go you might ask? Hmmm. That’s a tough question to answer. The traffic was not as good as I’d hoped but I sold a nice amount and my co-workers helped out the end total. All goes into the truck fund for my hubby. All of the items will now be bagged and tagged and off to St. Louis to my moms craft show.

I’ve had lots of great comments on my items and will soon be posting some in my etsy store. Keep checking back for more updates.

OMG…the show is tomorrow!

So I think I’m ready for my first ever craft show ALONE!! I’ve got a few more things to finish up but mostly the “crafts” are done. I gathered my display props (thanks Amy) and I think I’m ready to make a very cute show. I’ll take lots of pictures of the booth to show off!!

So not only have I been getting ready for this show but I’ve also been planning my son’s 9th birthday party at the local roller ring (talk about a flash back for both me & my hubby) complete with Ben 10 Ultramatrix cake. If you don’t know what that is, I’ll assume you don’t have a pre-tween bit living at your house. When did birthdays get so expensive?? 100$ for the roller rink (does include pizza and skating for ten kids – I know I’m crazy for inviting that many kids but my parents and lots of other adults will be there to keep me from going insane!!).

Add to that the fact that my kids gift list is pricy!! Did you know Lego sets can cost hundreds of dollars?? No? Then you don’t have a young son or grandson! But at least it’s creative and not a video game.

Well I’m at dinner waiting for my strawberry pecan salad. Then I’ll try to make more stuff to sell before I collapse into a coma of sleep. Later.

Nothing like your first business card

I stood in awe at the Staples print shop counter staring at the first business card with MY name on it. It was time to get serious. Professional. I just loved that I got the final say!! No committees or second opinions. Just me. It won’t be my final card or logo. Just something for my show this Friday, but I feel this sense of something happening. It’s also my first all by myself craft show. I set up the displays. I do everything. I’m very excited. There will be pictures to follow.

My pastor also loaned me a book on the ministry of making prayer shawls. It’s something I really want to do but I’m putting alot of prayer and thought into this. I want to donate them to nursing homes. I’ll keep everyone posted on how the book goes.

Craft show is this Friday October 14th from 5:30 to 8:30 in the gym of Renner Elementary. There will also be a carnival benefitting the PTA. Hope you can make it.
