Glad That's Over!
I seriously thought I was going to have a meltdown last week. Glad I didn't. I was starting to overreact Friday while I was packing everything up for the jewelry party when I discovered a hidden stash of earrings I'd forgotten about. Saved. It was a fairly decent haul, made a bunch of money off my dad, too ;). I ended up making about as much (minus my dad) as I did at the only craft show I've done, and that was in two hours with less people. But more stuff. It turns out it was a good idea bringing some supplies with me, because a lady my mom knows was looking at two memory wire bracelets I'd made with champagne and burgundy glass pearls but wanted to know if I could do another one with just the champagne pearls. Lucky me, I had those very same pearls with me. :) It was a fun time--one person brought a friend, so they both got a free pair of earrings. Those people actually bought more than one thing, too. I think if I do another one, this close to Christmas is a bad idea. Our church does a live nativity, so there were a lot of people helping get started on that, and it was a panic week for me with all of my teachers trying to get stuff in before Thanksgiving, AND I've been preoccupied with NaNoWriMo. Which I am stalling on right now, but just consider this my typing warm-up. On the to-do list for after Thanksgiving break: two research papers and LISTING NEW ITEMS!
