A Creativity Burst! And a Long Nap

Hi! OK, so next time I ask you: ”Can I do two, large, back-to-back shows that will require two, totally different inventories?” Your answer should be “no, David, you cannot.” Or perhaps, “yes David you can but it, and you, won’t be pretty.” And it wasn’t (my workroom was a mess)!

Craft Booth Set Up Part II: What About Me?!

Next up in my craft booth journey: The Sales Table! (I know!  Exciting!) In my booth I always mean to carve out a nice space for me.  A place where I can stand attentively, check people out (I mean transactions, not judging their outfits....though, lets be honest, I'm gonna do that too) and have some… Continue reading Craft Booth Set Up Part II: What About Me?!
