Good morning! Well for some of you it may not be starting out so well, after being out all night. For me it has started rather early (4 am) as per every day this week, but last night I got the best nights sleep I have had in a long time and today I feel refreshed.
Last weekend was the opening of the season at The Big Tin Cotton Gin and we had a blast. I met so many new wonderful people, saw a few of my awesome customers from last season, and made some new friends.
We sold quite a bit, at least enough to cover our booth rent and a little bit of the cost for product. I never really make a profit off my crafts at these shows, but that is alright as long as I can make enough to cover my booth rent. My payment is meeting the people that purchase my items and hearing their stories of who they intend to give them to, and why.
I have also gotten many good ideas from customers as to how I can improve items or change them up for different occasions or events. There have been many Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators that I have met and even exchanged ideas with (it is always awesome to meet a fellow Demonstrator).
As you can see it really was a very productive weekend and I am so looking forward to the next show November 16 -18, 2018.
This whole last week has been crazy with my husbands new job hours, so my schedule has been totally thrown off kilter. So the next week and a half I will be working my little fingers to the bones getting ready for the next show.
Please excuse me for not posting very often during show season, but I really am busy working about 18-20 hours a day seven days a week in between shows just prepping and making new items.
Thank you for your support and I hope that you have a wonderful Saturday doing whatever it is that you have planned for the day.
P..S. Yes, short but sweet and straight to the point. Thank you for noticing.
