Happy New Year!

New Year’s Day always fills me with a sense of hope and newness.  It’s 2018.  A whole new year filled with endless possibilities.

That crafting that I was hoping to get to last week?  Yeah…that didn’t happen.  But hey, it’s 2018.  Anything could happen today.

I’m celebrating the new year by offering free shipping on all orders in the the shop.  No coupon code required.

Cheers to 2018!  May your new year be bright and full of happiness.

New Inventory!

It’s like a wonderful Christmas present to myself.

I placed an order for new jewelry supplies before Christmas, and they arrived on Saturday.  I’m so excited about some of these items.

Especially these.  Can you tell what they are?  Bookmarks!  They are so perfect for my shop.  I am so pleased.

I’m hoping for some crafting time tonight.  I never quite know until I’m sitting in my basement working if there will be time, but conditions are good!

Success!

My table at the craft fair was a success!  I figured out how to use the point of sale card reader.  People *did* buy things, despite my fears that the would not.  And best of all, I had fun!  A huge thank you to my family, especially my mom, who came to visit or stay at my table with me.

I’m putting more items up in the shop today.  Come take a look!  Last day to ship for Christmas is December 17!

Here Comes the Fair!

A few months ago, I spied a flyer at my local YMCA.  A craft show was coming up, and the organizers were calling for crafters and vendors to sell their wares.  My interest was piqued.

I had recently relaunched my Etsy shop and was looking to expand my business.  That sounds almost ridiculously formal and preplanned.  Basically, I saw the flyer, remembered that I had always wanted to try a craft fair, and sent an email asking for more information.

Fast forward a few months.  My place is reserved.  I’ve purchased the necessary vendor-like tablecloth (with full skirt, thank you) and gift bags.  I’ve gathered my point of sale gadget, my cash box, and my display forms.  I’ve stocked over 40 items worth of inventory.  I am ready.

Actually, I’m terrified.  I’m excited, and terrified.  What if I don’t sell anything?  Or worse, what if I do??  

I have several more weeks to ponder these worrisome thoughts.  In the meantime, I’ll just continue to tell my six mind to chill.  It’s going to be fun…right?
