I am so focused and excited
I would lie if I said I am not nervous. Of course I am nervous. Who wouldn't be? What if nobody will buy my things? What if I am a poor sales woman? What if my language skills puts me in trouble? And on the other hand I wonder; Do I have enough stuff to fill my table? How will I expose it? What shall I charge? Well, there are a million things going on in my head right now. But I am focused. And I am happier than I have been in a long time.
With so litle crafty time on my hands I have to plan carefully to not become an ignoring mom or neglecting the house to much. Believe me, the house is okay, but far from the state I would like it to be. But it is okay. I run the vacuum a couple of times a week, do a little bit of laundry every day. I put my kids to work. Yep! I am delegating chores to receive more time by the sewing machine and cutting table. And they help without fuss, surprisingly... I guess they somehow understand that this is important to me. To try my wings with my crafts more officially.
So this weekend I didn't have much time as I was alone with the kids, but I did get time to prepare for some buntings to sell. This way I can sneak in and finish it off while the potatoes are boiling or when the kids get ready for bed... A few minutes here and there. Gosh, I am so focused.
Playing with my fabric stash fulfills my soul and to actually use some of the fabric s that has been on the shelf for a looooong time makes me very happy. And excited... Because then I can justify buying some new fun fabric. Lucky me!:D
Well this post became more personal than I expected but I guess I just needed to share my big upcoming adventure. Cross fingers my friends that I will do well. Any advice is welcome from you who have some experience from craft markets. I am so fresh at this and anything from exposing tips to labeling tips or packaging of purchased items are a blessing. Now it is time for breakfast and a day at my "real" job. An office job. Not very fun one. That is probably why I am so over the moon right now when I am doing the thing I love most in life. Creating!
Lots of love and excitement form to you. Have a lovely day!
