Hello February!

Oh my.  January is over already.  Things have been *quite* busy around here.  Homeschool is rolling along, and we’ve managed to avoid a January slump.  I think the fact that we’ve had some crazy warm days has helped.  Even though Evy and I have a hard time fully enjoying warm days in winter…we know too much.

And then of course, there have been the snow storms that I have popped up between the warm days.

February promises to be another busy, busy month.  There are the usual commitments, plus swim meets and….drum roll…another jewelry show to prepare for!  I’ve been hard at work creating more lovely pieces for my favorite heroines.  Here’s a sneak peek.

More information to come soon!  Until then, happy crafting/schooling/living to all!

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?
