The "after" isn't a whole lot different from the "before," is it? This was a terrific show---my second, for those of you who've just tuned in or aren't paying attention---and I'm still trying to get my proverbial act together. I made a bunch of sales, though, and people had lots of nice things to say about my work, so it was a success in my book, hands down
.Check out my new bunting! Yup, that's the one I was working on while Chevi had her surgery. It's lighter and easier to schlep around than the big wooden sign I made for my first show. Also a heck of a lot easier to hang.
burlap necklace displays? They're about to get a significant facelift, because the "look" of my setup has changed pretty drastically since I made them. I also used them to hold my ornaments this go-round, since the hanger I made for the last show was un-hangable in this setup. I need to work on that, I think...
washer keychains! Even had the wherewithal to put together a drawing for a freebie, which generated a surprising amount of interest. People got a kick out of the idea of designing their own keychains, and a couple of folks actually wrote down their ideas along with their names and email info on their entries.
All in all show number two was a winner. And now, if you'll excuse me, I've got a birthday cake to frost and a pinata to hang. Miss Chevi is having her seventh birthday part this afternoon, and her mom has been a little too craft-show-focused this week to get much planning done. So I'm off to fly by the seat of my pants once again....I'll be back with photographic evidence later! (Here's a teaser from the actual birthday---which I was reminded incessantly wasn't her real party---last Sunday. Please disregard shoddy cake frosting.)
