So now I feel ready to take on the handmade world again. I feel renewed. I'm ready for more shows, and I'm ready to try some new things.
I would definitely participate in the Strawberry Swing again. It was my first time setting up a 10 by 10 foot booth for my shop. So playing around with set-up was fun. I will be making changes and upgrades for the next show.
|My booth!! (And my new maxi skirt!)|
My husband whipped up a couple displays just days prior to the show. He made one for my felt paintings (below) and one for my brooches (that I didn't photograph--which was dumb--but you kind of see it on the far left of the booth photo). I'm so thankful for his help too. Not only does he build things for me, but he helps haul my stuff, set-up, tear down, and hangs out with me during the day. He runs and gets me snow cones, because I have a headache and no advil. He even helps me felt sometimes...
|I had all the makings for a felt tea party!|
I met Meredith, who makes fabulous dinnerware. I scored this plate and one of these plates (the one with the skull), because who doesn't want to eat from these?
I also met Emily, who was really excited to see that I offer custom pet portraits. I'll be partnering with her soon over on her blog for a giveaway. Keep your eyes peeled for that!
So, with rejuvenation comes organization, and boy does my craft room need that. If you need me this weekend, I'll be straightening and categorizing mounds of fluff and piles of other hobbies. :)
