shall I do it again?

Yesterday Holiday Boutique was not really a success
but not quite a failure!
Just a nice shade of gray....
Most of my customers were people I knew,
I was proud to show my work,
and most people seemed to enjoy it,
so overall a positive experience!

I can see why a lot of crafters decide to go through Etsy,
one can pace the work and the schedule,
so I am definitively considering it,
Mon Cheri has been pushing that way for a while,
but I did not feel I was ready,
my work was ready but not me,
if it makes sense!
I can see more soul searching in the next few days,
and very little sewing,
I feel a major burnout!
So I am off to do some painting,
house painting!
Happy day!


  1. Your table looks great! Years ago, I did some craft fairs. Gray is a very accurate description for some! I found my success largely depended upon the success of the craft fair as a whole. Some are better advertised and attended than others. Don't give up!

  2. Your display looks great and so fun. I can relate to what you have been through. Daughter & I have started a children's clothing / embroidery / applique business. We also worked very hard to get ready for a craft show about 2 weeks ago. We did 'ok', but I think the exposure did more for us than anything.


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
