yesterday, i participated in the sugarplum craft fair. it was my first craft fair in (seven?) years, and i'm so glad i did it. it was by no means a perfect day...but it was a nice one.
i stayed up really late friday finishing a few pieces (thursday's tasks) and pricing and packing, and then - on the morning of the craft fair, i overslept - about two hours longer than i intended. luckily, i was all packed, and it really just meant i had less time to perfect my booth space (which was simple anyway), and that i would be eating concessions for breakfast, which turned out to be fine, too.
traffic was steady. feedback was great. observations of booth visitors were interesting (there was one particular item that people held and turned over 100% of the time, i noticed). i made enough sales to cover my booth fee (which is better than losing money), and most importantly, i painted things that had been sitting idly, unpainted, and i'm getting back into this part of creating again. then, at carmen's wedding, i met a relative of a friend who was gifted with a pendant i made. our conversation made me eager to create more and restock my etsy shop. and this morning, i am making pendants again. i feel a delightful motivation.
have a marvelous week!
