Craft Fair and a New Toy

That's right, I've decided to participate in a holiday craft fair this year. I am completely nervous about it, but hopefully it'll be a good thing. I have no idea how much I would need to have in product, which is a problem. I'll basically be winging it. Usually I don't mind winging it, but with something like this it scares the *bleep* out of me! I've been making a fair amount of new items lately, which feels good, but is it enough? *shrug* I guess all I can hope is that I don't make a total fool of myself. (and if you know me at all, you know what a feat that will be!) And of course now I'm back to second-guessing everything I make/have made. Maybe it all looks really ugly and I'm just fooling myself. Very possible. Sheesh.

On a happier note, I bought myself a new toy yesterday. It's a seed bead spinner. Man is it cool, dudes. I can't even tell you how much time it will save me. Not that I work a LOT with seed beads, but now it will be a lot less time-consuming when I decide to. Very exciting. =)

I wasn't chosen for that book, but I didn't really expect to be. It's all good. I've been buying tons of stuff lately, basically soaking up every cent I make, but it's so FUN! I like to think I've been buying smart, at least. I really need to clean up my work area, though, dudes. It's a mess! I realy don't quite have enough space for everything. But that's something I can't really change, so no point in whining about it, right? Right.

I need some advice, dudes. I've sold some jewelry to Family Fun Cutz, which is super great for me. But... nothing is really selling. I'm really disappointed in that. And the problem is that I agreed that if something doesn't sell, then I would take it back and give them something else. But NOTHING is selling. (Except for like 3 rings.) I can't afford to buy everything back, and I kind of fee like if what I gave her won't sell, then nothing else will either. So I don't know what to do. *sigh* If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.

I'll hopefully post some new pictures next week. I really have been making quite a bit lately.

  1. Can you just end your contract with them since it has not been productive? That's what I'd do.
    What craft show are you doing? I wish I had the gumption to do one. Esp. now that I might be making some appliqued onesies...first I have to do a test run with my cricut.
    Good luck!
