Craft Fair.....Success!

Today was the day! I was an actual vendor at my first ever craft fair!!
I cannot believe how nervous I was to see what people would think of my craftiness. I mean....you get to see reactions first hand.....and I would know right away what they were thinking. (Scary, right??)
But I had my biggest cheerleaders with me...and just seeing my husband's proud smile was all I needed :)

And...all in all it was a GREAT day! I got great positive reactions....I was actually talked UP on some of my prices (apparently I was priced too low..hehehe and she just wasn't having that!)
I was able to sell most of the things I had out....the paintings didn't sell, but I did get a lot of questions about custom paintings!
I left with my pockets a little heavier but mostly I was so grateful for the new friends I made and the validation that comes along with other's thinking your talent is worth something :)

I took this picture a few hours into the sale....so the table looks a little bare, but that's a good thing!


I have to say thanks to all of you who sent well wishes my way today! I really, really would have never had the courage to put myself out there if it hadn't been for you all!

I hope you have a great weekend....I think I'll go take a nap now :)

  3. I am so proud of you for going out and doing this, I feel the same way about a craft fair but I am my biggest critic. Your creations are perfect and anyone would love to have them. Good Job, now rest before that baby comes and you don't have time for that. Hope the rest of your weekend is great.
