Flashback; My One and Only Craft Show


When I first started crafting, I went by the name of scentsations by pmh-real original, I know! And I exclusively made and sold candles only. I am notoriously shy, and my sister had to force me to go through with this show. I was still grieving the loss of my fiance Spencer who had died less than two months before the show, and I just did not want to be bothered-with anything or anyone. Needless to say, I think I was one of the more successful booths at that fair because no one else had anything like my pie and fruit-shaped candles. Still though, I haven't done another show since...
 
Wow!!! Look how far I've come...

The shows are probably a good idea for making a few extra $, I had a friend who did candles (gel) and she did really well. I finally bought a soap-making book, but haven't gotten up the courage (and tools, and time) to make my first batch.

How can you NOT do more shows with your fab soaps? Shyness or no!

What a bummer to have to do a show when you are grieving. But such is life.

I have yet to do a crafts show, although I have visited many and understand the set up. I am stuck at home.

Thanks for sharing this.

Hugs,
Anna

You absolutely should start preparing right now to do another one! Put that on your immediate agenda, girl! Why stop at just one?
Work that business! ;)
