This past weekend, I survived having my first booth selling my creations. My dad set up his old hunting tent and we filled it with old wood and burlap and miniature clotheslines. The day was beautiful and my Momcat was there to be the money bags. My extremely right brain and the mysterious science of mathematics do not go well together. So she saved me!
We had a really good turnout, and as hard as it was to sell my little babies I did have a grand ol’ time! I think this is the beginning of something delightful! And now I can’t wait for my next show. Great…just when I can relax…I have to start panicking and making stuff again! But at least it’s fun! Hopefully I can get more leather projects done that are on the larger side. I did sell one of my purses at Art in the Park! I should write down all the pains and hardships for each purse and put the story inside…just so people can appreciate the leather as much as I do. But I guess that’s the cool part. I’ll see my work around town and only I know what was put into it and how much work those pieces took. Actually my big seester put together a purse for me the other day so I could work on something else. I got it all stained for her and just gave her the directions. She now knows why I complain about sore fingers and muscles! Haha I’m not the only one!
I’m just so excited about my creations going out into the world! I never thought that I would take my crafts to this sort of level. And I am blessed to have such a great family that helps me!
My next goal is getting enough stuff made to be in Ribfest this August. I’m hooked on having booths now! They are so fun to decorate and set up. Good thing Manfriend is so handy with a saw and drill and whatever else he uses to make my displays!
