This sums up my life to the tee.
Since last writing on here I have spent many an hour thinking of new ideas but also rushing around like a headless chicken trying to deal with my normal domestic life and trying to decide which ideas to put into practice and create new things.
New items have been added to the selection and to my shop on Etsy : https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/EvansaboveDesign. and I have been working on collecting items for my stall to attend craft fairs. The hunting for hessian and festive decorations has been fun and has helped me get into the festive mood which normally eludes me.
In late October I attended my first craft fair at Reepham Old Station and it was quite daunting entering into unknown territory. It was evident that the rest of the stallholders were old hands at this and many brought hot drinks in flasks and many snacks for a cold day ahead. The weather was not kind and the rain fell all day, but thankfully us Brits are made of strong stuff and many people came to have a browse around the stalls. Sadly there were no sales to be had but a lot of interest in the materials I had chosen. I did have a very good chat with a local stall holder and learnt a few good tips and ideas for future events.
I have three events lined up before Christmas so I hope some success there and the interest I have received on Instagram will hopefully turn into sales. In the meantime I am looking into expanding the items for sale and exploring new outlets for my goodies.
