HI everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend! I just finished a long weekend at the flea market this weekend. I wish I could say it was the best weekend I ever had, but I have to say, sales were blah and it was a bit slow for a May show.But, they can’t all be winners. I mean I did okay, it’s just normally I walk away with double what I did this last weekend. Can I get a wah-waaaaaaaaah?
I think it was because of our sucky weather this last winter. Normally we’ve been out in the yard for a month in a half. The weather has been so bad that was the first weekend everyone could really garden and get outside.I don’t blame them, if I had been at home I would have been in my garden all weekend too! I mean it’s stinkin’ may already and we till don’t have lilacs! Booooo!
I am excited to be doing a plaster class at The Urban Farmgirl Main Street Market this next weekend. It is going to be a blast! We are going to take small objects, cast them in plaster, and then make them into jewelry and small embellishments. There are a ton of vendors and I can’t wait to have a fun day.
Also are you going to the Haven Conference? I also found out I am going to be speaking at Haven again! I am very excited!
There are also only a few weeks left register for the Building a Creatively Made business 2.0
I had a few people at the flea tell me they forgot and wanted to make sure they signed up! I’ve been working on the videos and I can’t wait for you to see all of the information I have to share with you. I think if you are really interested in growing your kitchen table business or really want to grow a bushiness to help financially bless your family,this is a great class for you. Until I did the videos, I didn’t realize how much of a journey I have some on n the last 7-ish years. I thought about it a lot this weekend during the slow times. I started out a Mom with 3 little kids,painting some really ugly, crappy crafts doing craft shows at churches and school gyms.. I did the whole picture frame,mason jar, journal thing with a country flair. In fact to prove it to you, here’s a picture: I’m titling it “the crafts of crap” past.
I was the mason jar lady before mason jars were hot. This is a flashback to a 2001 holiday show when I was happy just to walk away with my booth money and a bit extra.
flash forward to today…notsomuch.
It’s amazing to me how I’ve gone from country crafts to a mural and furniture business to wholesaling to writing a book and so much more. it’s one of those things I never thought I would be here and it kind of makes me excited to see where it’s going!
