Here I am! At my first craft show ever! I shared a booth with Andrea (Sacred Suds). She was awesome and her soaps smelled delicious!
We also had Round Bottom Baby at the show- she had the cutest kids ties! (ps. all the artists at this show can be found on Etsy)
Chickadeesigns had the coolest resin pendants and by the end of the day I couldn't resist! I had to buy one! I got one of Betty Boop on the couch with a guy (does anyone remeber his name? the blond guy?) lol and he's all like, Hey baby! and Betty's all like Oh come on! It's hilarious!
There were so many great artists at the show- 48 total- I didn't even get a chance to see them all!
I took notes through out the show to make improvements for the next show and decided I need to get at least 75 items up in my online shop! Ambitious I know but totally doable!
Jenny Bunny was so fun! I really enjoyed meeting all of you!
And here is the lady that made my first sale! Wearing one of my original headbands!
I wish I had gottan a picture of my second sale- it was the blue top with white flowers- this girl was so perfect for it, petit with long curly brown hair- so adorable! lol and that was all I got for sales!
My craft show is this Saturday and I am rushing to get everything done! The other night I started playing around putting together outfits on my manequin- seeing what works and what doesn't, deciding what to put on display, etc etc
And I have to say I ended up very impressed with myself!
My pieces go so well with each other! It was invigorating! I felt that satisfaction of a job well done (I did it! I did it! yeah yeah yeah!)
I think I have put together a great collection and I have high hopes for my first show! :)
My line is made from all recycled material and yet it's fashionable, fun, and girly romantic.
I started sewing last June and the last ten months have been an incredible! I found my passion and this is just the beginning!
I am so excited to start making new items and find a couple more shows to participate in this year!
I know that this year is going to be Fantastic! I have been waiting to do craft shows since I was a little girl and now my dreams are coming true...
It's almost like a fairy tale :)
Course in this tale, it's filled with heaping piles of discarded garments and fabrics that are lovingly transformed into beautiful and fashionable clothing and accessories! lol
It's a good thing I already got Prince Charming hooked...
Course, he is complaining that I need to start branching out to men's fashions...
I will, in good time...
You all just wait and see, I'll be famous someday...
Or at least be self-employed and run my own shop! That's what I really want...
I've dreamed about trying out for Project Runway (god that would be so fun!) But I don't think that lifestyle that would come with it would be suitable for me!
