So yesterday was tons of fun! Having never participated in an event like this, I didn't quite know what to expect. It was so encouraging. I felt like a legitimate business gal with a real business. (even though I still so stink at the business side of things... You should have seen me trying to price my products. I'm a mess.) It was so neat to be in a room full of creative women and seeing their craft. Check out some of the businesses that I was introduced to yesterday:
And these were just the ones that I was able to grab cards from. I can't wait to go back through my program and check out the other sites.
Part of the fun and stress was planning my table layout. I was worried about how to make it look good on very little money. I scrounged around the house and borrowed from friends and family. My favorite find was the sewing machine drawers to use to hold my notecards. (Thanks Mom and Molly!) Here's the gist of it:
And here's my booth neighbor and a peak at her photo jewelry. You might recognize her from her blog, Kotori. We were both sporting the cutest little vendor aprons that she made for us. (Can't believe I didn't snap a pic of this: Boo.) Apparently you can make one "quite easily" by following her DIY, but I prefer the DIFM method (Do It For Me: Thanks Tonya!).
All in all, it was a wonderfully exhausting day. I'm feeling quite ready for the weekend, and some relaxing, and that bottle of wine. Hope you have a great weekend too!
