What have I been so busy with you ask.
Umm...Sarah, it is only mid May. What does 4th of July have to do with being busy now?
Yes, I know it is only May, but I promise I am getting to the point. Anyways, said Fireworks Festival will be held on June 25th this year and there will be craft booths there. I signed up to be one of those vendors! This will be my very first show and I could not be more excited! That being said there is a lot of work I need to get done before I am ready.
First task was to finally jump into the new age and get a freaking smartphone. I ordered the Square, so I can accept debt/credit card payments directly through my new phone. The phone arrived yesterday and I could not put it down. I am
Second task is to create a lot more product! Currently I have 32 items in my Etsy shop but I will need a lot more. I am working on a line of Patriotic bows just for this show. Some of them will be listed in my Etsy shop as well. Right now I have about 30 more cut out and ready to be sewn.
Shouldn't you have done that yesterday instead of playing with your new phone?
Shhhh...Zip it inner monologue! But yes, yes, I should have done that yesterday. Other than that, my next tasks include finding a good white 10x10 canopy tent, making some sort of shop banner I can hang up to announce myself and figuring out how I am going to display everything. I am open to suggestions on all 3 of those things, but mostly the canopy tent. If you have ever done a show before please let me know the good and the bad of tents!
