Chin up, girl

WIP, Stitched postcard.

So, the market wasn't what I'd hoped, but that's OK. I'm not entirely sure I'm a craft fair kind of girl, but I will explore other market options.

Ultimately, it was a gorgeous, sunny day, I met interesting people and spent fun time with my parents and friends. So I can't complain.

WIP, Stitched postcard. Spider wheel in the sky.

It was only a matter of time until I united my Durham cards with stitching. Lots of possibility for fun with this. I kind of like this work in progress.

I will spend some time on this.

And I will have friends over to my tiny home and spoil them with good conversation, food and drink. And I'll keep my chin up, no matter what.


  1. Definitely keep that beautiful chin up, girly! Craft fairs are a huge challenge, it's really hard to know what people are going to want ahead of time, and it seems like whatever it is they *do* want, they want very inexpensively. Try not to be discouraged, your work is awesome!

  2. Sorry we didn't make it over. [bad friend!]

    We did so many different craft fairs. Most were lots of fun but few were profitable for me. Hang in there and keep putting your product in the public eye. You'll find your fave type of show and then you'll soar!!!!

  3. Craft fairs aren't easy at all, especially when you are getting started; you certainly aren't alone in your experiences. I'm glad you found some enjoyment in it, anyway!
