Leopard Zip Pouch
By Amy Mayen
Welcome to Workroom Wednesday, where I share some of the small projects that didn’t make the blog last week.
This week I’m gearing up for a craft show. I’m not trying to fish for compliments…it’s just that Im ridden with insecurity about it. This will be my second show. I did the same show last year, and barely made any sales. I broke even…I lost money I’d you count the stuff I bought! There was a HeartWalk nearby that may have affected the turnout, not many people showed up. I’m doing the same show this year, and if I don’t do well I will try a different show next time. I don’t think I have a professional enough display or enough experience to do a big fancy show, but maybe something a little bigger?
Here’s a banner I made to go on the front of the table. I used paper plates like I did for Bella’s birthday banner. I’m not super thrilled with it, but at least it’s visible. Overall, I know we’ll have a much better display than last year. I’ll post about it next week :)
I made a few of these fabric wrapped bracelets. How much should I sell them for?
Here’s a little zipper bag I made to put money in. Assuming anyone gives me any money…
There’s something nerve racking about putting your work on display. Let me tell you though- I had a fashion show in college that was an EPIC FAIL. I tried to launch a clothing line once with absolutely no marketing experience. I am pretty successful in almost everything I do, but when I go down, I go down HARD- and I have learned way more from my blunders than I ever have from my successes. So a dinky little craft show won’t make or break me. Wish me luck Saturday!
