Craft Show Busy

I realize that I have been ignoring this blog, but seriously I have been swamped with a new craft show I am hosting. It is not that I am busy hosting it is that I had decided that I was also going to partake in this show. This has been a struggle for me and so out of my comfort zone because, let’s face it, I am a yarn person and to have things to sell in the late spring has become a chore for me. So…. I pulled out my sewing machine, dusted it off and got busy trying to get stuff together for a spring show. I have made some lightweight infinity scarves

I have also made hair scrunchies, and headbands

I think I have enough for my table but at this point I have no idea how much product I will need as this is the first spring show for this area. I did get a bit of a surprise yesterday when I got a call from a local paper wanting to do a short interview with me. People that know me know that this is way way way out of my comfort zone but I managed and in the end it was not as painful as I thought it was going to be. This Apple blossom festival attracts over 100,000 people to the area and our.. sorry.. MY craft show is going to be advertised in all the festival advertisement. I guess I better pull up my big girl panties and get ready for the next phone call.

And I am proud to announce that the show is now officially FULL.. All the tables have been rented. Two more weeks and my angst will be over and then I can get back to my normal routine.

I have had a couple of things run through my head the last couple of days for items for the fall show using my addi express and it took every bit of my willpower to not drop what I was doing and try out my idea. Truely!!  this is a big issue with me, I get something in my head and I have to try it right away. hahaha

oh and in the meantime I made a crochet OLAF. which sold within 15 minutes of me posting it

and this past weekend I made a penguin for my grand daughters birthday which will be delivered to her tomorrow

So to say I have been slightly busy is an understatement at this time.

Off I go to finish up my scarves and take stock of what I have ready. I also have to email the vendors with the floor plan for the show so they will have an idea of where they are located.

Soon.. I will enjoy the sun soon
