The Craft Show was a Success!

I finally finished all my projects, packed them with care, drove one and a half hours to Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA, set up my creations, waited for the customers to swarm my booth and have a fabulous time!  Well, 5 out of 6 isn't bad.   I didn't have customers swarming my booth all day, except for a mere 10 minutes around 1:00.  I was so excited to hear the customers tell me that they loved my stuff.  It's so encouraging to receive such fantastic compliments.  My mom and dad stopped by as well--they live about 20 minutes away--and they said that I was just beaming.  The craft fair was open from noon to 3:00 and in that time, I made $140.   Not too shabby.  I almost gave up on doing craft shows because I didn't make any money during the otehr two.  This gave me the incentive and encouragement now to do more in the Fall.   I've got plenty of ideas for November.  

I also got a phone call from a customer who has special-ordered two minis.  One is a beach-themed anniversary album for a 50th wedding anniversary and another is Spring themed.  So, I'll be busy working on those 2 items.  

I haven't posted a YouTube video in awhile and will be doing a few tomorrow.  Keep an eye out for my newest videos to be uploaded in the next couple of days.  Also, I'll have more creations uploaded on this blog as well. 

Thanks for stopping by.
