moving forward

I'm back from Baltimore, the show was beautiful but barely attended. To be honest, I am disappointed, very disappointed as I had faith in the organizers to pull in a decent crowd. And judging by the incredible group of makers, it is truly a shame. And for me it was an expensive mistake which is actually the second mistake I made since going full-time. The first mistake was buying a year's worth of advertising with TheKnot - but what can I do, I'm still new at this. Mistakes will be made. We did however splurge on a yummy seafood dinner and got in a much needed night out!
Moving forward, I am adding my one of a kind pieces to my etsy shop this week. Above is my mama bird serving dish. It's a bit bowl like and a bit platter like, I love the usefulness of this piece and had a hard time putting it up for sale!

Sorry it wasn't what you hoped for but I guess you never know until you try! And try you do! Good things come to those who try (& who have patience:-) See you this weekend! peace, L

As time goes by I think the economic situation is biting at our heels worse and worse... Ya know?
Keep on keepin' on.

I also had a crummy weekend show. It's starting to feel a little scary but hopefully we will all get by little by little and keep our heads above water until a better day.

Thanks Ladies!

Karissa, it is a little scary, I have a bunch of shows lined up and now I'm not sure where to put my energy, web marketing or hoping the shows are a huge success. Now I'm eyeing up wholesale again. What was the vibe at your show? People were shopping at mine but there weren't enough people to generate a profit... I knit an entire neck warmer and cleaned up my computer files!

Sorry to hear that, Linda. I'm feeling like you are - where to put my energy?
