Craft shows……sad this time!

http://www.share-christmas.com/stories/merrychristmas/

A great site to check out for all kinds of Christmas stuff. My mama sent it to me and I’ve enjoyed it for the past few days. Haven’t even gotten to parts of it yet.

My craft show was terrible. I’m a bit depressed about it though I know it’s part of doing the shows. I have come to a decision also, we’ve been doing craft shows now for about 6 years and I’m done. I need to take a break so next year I’m not going to do any more. Brenda agrees with me so we are going to go to craft shows as customers instead of vendors. Our jewelry won’t lose it’s value by sitting in the brief case for a year or so and our beads can just sit in their tote until we are ready to start over. I’m tired of having most weekends filled with working a show, it’s time to play a bit. I know I’ll miss them and the extra cash they do bring in on most shows but I don’t think I’ll miss them enough to start them up again right away.

I did have a blast at the show because my mama came and we spent the whole day chatting. She is just the perfect mama. She’s not just my mama, she’s my best friend. We just watched people, played the “what do you think she’s was thinking by wearing that” and “my goodness, what happened to that hair”. This year mama has helped me with all the craft shows because my partner broke her ankle and foot and wasn’t able to do them. Mama, I LOVE YOU and THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!!

Good night my friends, have a blessed weekend. I work tomorrow with my daycare little ones plus my nephew is here for the weekend. Tomorrow evening we are going Christmas light looking. I'll bring my camera and maybe can get a good picture or two to share with you. I love Christmas lights!

God Bless my friends.

Sorry to hear about the bummer craft show, but I know you're going to have so much fun as a customer and I bet the stuff will sell like hotcakes when you bring them back out next year.

Can't wait to see your lights.
