whew! that was crazy!

ok, i had reaaaaallly good intentions of blogging before my holiday show, but i was a bit delusional then. i’m all better now. promise.

the show was wonderful! i met so many lovely people who are dedicated to making and shopping handmade. i am hopeful that some of the happy shoppers will return to shop with me online, and that i can contribute more to the network of awesome peeps who showed up. i’m not really thrilled with my smartphone photos, so i won’t show you the depths of my genius setup. i will tell you that my husband built me some awesome displays that got tons of compliments. the whole thing still needs some finessing, but i was pretty happy with how quickly i was able to set up and tear down.

i will also say that i am very grateful that i worked so hard to build stock for the show, even though i didn’t quite reach the unrealistic goals i had in mind. this is the most stock i have had on hand since before i got pregnant (and horribly sick) with my daughter. it has really helped with my stress level, since christmas shopping is so thrown off this year by a late thanksgiving. a bunch of items in my etsy shop are marked READY TO SHIP, and it puts a smile on my face when i can just grab the piece and package it up immediately!

there is still time to shop with me before christmas hits! i can also upgrade your order to priority mail, so convo me through the ‘contact’ link in the listing, if you need it quick!

i am looking forward to the new year, as i already have some new concepts and techniques filling my head. i am also hoping to get a bunch of old supplies listed to sell, so i can begin clearing out my stash! trying not to get too delusional about how much i can accomplish once the holiday season is over. haha!
