It's been pretty busy recently and I have been getting my work ready for a craft fair this Sunday. Thankfully, I have had some time this week to really crack into things and I am actually feeling organised! Well kind off! I am still waiting for some cello bags to arrive so that I can pack up my cards.... I'm pretty sure they will arrive on time!
Anyway, it will be good to get my work out there again! The last public 'showing' was the Jingle Belles event I did with some other local artists and that was before Christmas! It's not easy doing my art thing with Tabitha, when my husband is busy selling his raw chocolate at events and markets on a regular basis.
I also sold my car earlier this year to save money and although we cope pretty well with one car, it's really more Darren's. I'm actually a bit scared to drive it, as its bigger than what I'm used to! So I would like to get another car sometime, or work out a way for us both to able to have stalls at events and manage childcare.
I'm not complaining though! I feel so lucky to have had this time with Tabitha and managed to develop my art and my product range. I'm delighted to have learned a new skill in transferring images to wood and love the effect. It's great to have more diversity in what I can sell and I feel that my vision is starting to come together!
I am much more business focused, or at least market aware nowadays. I think that before I have just gone into my own bubble and created whatever I was guided to create. Now I try to think 'what do people want?' 'What will look good in their home' 'how can I create an emotion in someone?'
So it will be interesting to actually see people's reactions to my work and try to learn and grow from there. I need to get myself some Christmas fairs for this year and start to think about a plan for next year!
It's really exciting though and I'm looking forward to interacting with more people.
After the craft show on Sunday, I am going to have a little break from making stuff as I want to sort out my wardrobe! I'm not sure why but I'm just not feeling the love for my clothes at the moment and could do with a style makeover! So, I shall eBay what I don't want anymore and then go shopping with any money raised.
Tabitha also has lots of clothes that she doesn't wear too, so it will feel good to have a sort out. I actually love doing this as it feels really good to make space and keep energy moving. Our house is too tiny to horde stuff!
Creating work and storing it is also a juggling act!
Anyway, I'd love to see you at Sennen craft market on Sunday 24th!
Thanks for reading and being part of my magical journey!
Best wishes and fairy kisses.
