Fall Line = COMPLETE!
I have been a bad, bad blogger. Please accept my apologies for suddenly vanishing into thin air over the past week! After my jewelry party (more on that later!), I came down with a fierce cold and missed a WHOLE week of work! With all that's been on my plate at work, in addition to not having any additional pictures of the party to share, I have had no time or energy to blog! Please forgive me. ::hug:: Great, now that we've made up we can move on. There is so much I want to share about the success that was the jewelry party with you, but I am still waiting on pictures from my impromptu photographer and don't want to spill all the beans without pictures to accompany! So if you don't mind hanging tight for a few more days I would be most grateful! With the left over energy of the party's success, I have gone out on a limb and signed up for 3 other shows. The first is a "Christmas Boutique" at a local Lutheran church here in town - and it's this Saturday! I don't know anything much about this show other than it's a collection of artisans and crafters setting up booths in a church fellowship hall (which is the type of thing I grew up attending!). I have been told that I will have a table and my name on a program, but other than that, I am going into this rather blindly! I haven't stressed out about the event because I have alot of products left over from the jewelry party with tags still in place on each item. It could be a success or a huge flop - but since I already have the products ready to go, might as well try to sell more! The hubs is able to join me for the whole of the event, which means that any last minute need will be met easily and with enthusiastic help. I plan to also work on a few pieces while at the show - I have from other jewelry makers that doing so has helped sales and custom orders at the event. 15% of my proceeds will go back to the church. Meanwhile, while preparing for the jewelry show, I made all sorts of new items to premier at the party. Of course not everything sold, so I have added them to my Etsy site, concluding my Fall Line! Take a look! (click on any picture to go to it's corresponding Etsy page)...
