Art Vs Craft

Saturday I had my first craft show.  It was so much fun!  I had been stressed because I had no idea what it would be like, if I would be totally amateur or just fine, how much to make, how to price my stuff.  Turns out everything was fine. 

I had a great time with an old friend, we just sat and chatted, saw more old friends, sold some stuff, drank coffee, ate popcorn.  It was a wonderful day!

Brendan brought the kids to visit and Ingrid thought she was going to stay the whole day.  She was very intent on "helping" which consisted of shoving an item in someone's face and saying "you gonna buy this?"  She knows how to do it!

So now it's back to the somewhat leisurely life of an etsy shop, where I list as I please, I make a few sales here and there, and I do it on my own schedule.  It's nice not to have a deadline hanging over me, I prefer a more laid back atmosphere!  But I will definitely do this again, maybe two or three shows a year if I can find good ones.  It was so fun!
