Hi everyone! How was your day?! We seem to be suffering from a slight setback in the potty training department. Poor Addison holds it for as long as she can, and then has accidents because she can't hold it anymore. I feel incredibly guilty for bringing the kids to the lake last weekend now. It must have been too soon after learning to use the potty? I don't know. Ohh, I hope we can get back on track quickly.
Tonight, I have a small sneak peek for you tonight. Oooh the suspense! I can't show you the whole piece yet because its an order I'm currently working on, but I CAN show you a tiny little bit! in the near future, you're going to see lots of sparkle, color and nature inspired elements. So--enjoy, even if it is just snippets!
This is all I have to share tonight. Hopefully I'll have a bit more to show you tomorrow! In other news, I'm hoping to join a small 'swap and shop' meet that occurs once a month here in Whitecourt. It's just around the corner from our house, and is only one afternoon per month. Easy peasy! So, I'm trying to build up my greeting card stock so that I've got something to sell on an RTS (ready to ship) basis. I'm also considering hitting up the farmers markets here and in Mayerthorpe. Possibly even Fox Creek if they have one. I want to create and share it! This is the best way for me to do it! I was hoping to join a major trade show this coming fall, but after learning the fine print, it's too expensive for right now. After considering distance and fuel, food, and the cost of the table for the weekend, I'd have to sell a heck of a lot product to even break even. I'm bummed about it, but I know there'll be other opportunities. I spoke with my mother in law about it (because she's done a lot of them) and it was her advice to stick with the smaller venues, because people are more willing to buy, and fees aren't near as much. The large venues are great for networking. So, if you're thinking about vending at a trade show, this is something to keep in mind!
Tomorrow may be a busy, fun filled day for us, starting with French toast for brunch. Yum! Take care, thanks for dropping by, and enjoy your day tomorrow!
