My New Booth Design

This month has been flying by, I can't believe November will be here this weekend.

I have been in jewelry making mode for the last month or so, building up my inventory for all my holiday shows.

Last weekend I got my show season off to a great start. I had a booth at a fashion show fund raising event, and it was a huge success. It was my perfect target market and everyone was there to shop.

I tried out some new display pieces, and they worked out great. I've needed a new idea for a long time and I am so glad this idea worked.

In my old booth it was very challenging to take jewelry down and put it back up when we had a crowd of people at the table, now it is much easier for me and the customers.

As much as I loved my old display it was really challenging.

New Display
My new display includes the new flat boards, pipe display pieces, and it really emphasizes the industrial hardware theme.








My craft show display has been a work in progress for the last 10 years. Every time I add to it or create a new piece I like it more and more. I think I have finally found the solution to making it easier to show off the items even when it's crowed. 

I have another big 2 day show coming up this weekend and I am looking forward to being able to help customers easier, and hopefully sell lots of pieces.

How has your display evolved over the years?

Value Your Experiences



Use Your Experience

In a world obsessed with youth,
experience is often undervalued.
But your unique experiences are priceless.
They give you many advantages.
Cherish them.
Use them wisely:
at work; with family; in relationships; in planning ahead.

My Big Event

I was lucky to be part of a large fashion show art event at a local gallery last week. I have been working on my pieces all summer and I was so excited to be accepted to participate in the show.

It was a long process of finding models, choosing music, creating a runway plan, and getting everything coordinated for the event. Who knew there was so much working in prepping for something that only lasts for about 20 minutes.

It was a very long day of rehearsal, getting hair and make up done, and waiting around for the show to start. I think the waiting around was the hardest part.

Here are a few photos of the day and the event.

Here are the three pieces I created for the runway show.




All and all it turned out to be a fantastic day. I was really tired when I got home (and the next day) but it was worth all the work I put into participating.

I am still honored to have my three pieces selected. I think I will apply again next year :)

Possibilities



Look to the Stars

They promise so much.
They show us perspective.
We look at them and dream.
And hope.
And Wonder.
At their unlimited possibilities.

Start Now!



Make the most of every day.
Use up the hours like a child.
There are no guarantees how many we get.
Older people will tell you:
  they rarely regret the things they did, 
  only the things they didn't do.
Don't spend your life intending to do something.
Start Now!

Don't Wait



Never allow waiting to become a habit.
Live your dreams and take risks.
Life is happening now.
