I've missed a few days of blogging and I'm sorry for that but I've got a really good reason.......I'm getting ready for my first show!!!
Okay, not really a show........and it's pretty small compared to some venues but I'm excited. And nervous. If anyone's in the area, here's the info:
An Evening of Shopping
James Morris School
10 East Street
Friday, November 21st 6-9pm
I've been struggling with my display and whether or not I have enough inventory to cover a 6ft table - I don't. I'll have to be creative.
I'm thankful to the moms in my playgroup for the encouragement. I'd been avoiding any kind of direct sales with one excuse after another. This is a good way to get my feet wet and whatever happens, happens. Hubby and I made a deal - if I don't do well at this show or as a result of this show, I'll put the jewelry on hold for a bit. Supplies are expensive and Christmas is coming. You'd think it would put even more pressure on me regarding the show's outcome but I've made peace with that aspect. My husband supports me and I know he wants me to do well. If I don't, it will only be a hiatus.
On a positive note: I've been working on my soldering skills and a few pieces will debut at the show. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE soldering!!! It opens so many more creative doors! I have to remember to take pics of the new pieces before Friday just in case they all sell out ;-)
I will be back to blogging and blog hopping and twittering soon. If it's not before Friday, please wish me luck!!!
