A craft fair!

Hello there,

I've been MIA for a while - I actually have a good reason this time: I was rushing to sew lots of crafty things for an upcoming fair! I was counting down the days and finally, it came and went and now I can let out a big "WHEW!" and relax. lol. (Mind you, it was for only a whole day. I'm just being whiny. I do have a lot to learn.)

(Sorry about the pictures, I didn't have enough space to capture the whole table unless taken at an angle! And yes, I realized I had the flower cover up the letter 'I', but not to worry, it was soon rectified after I put the camera away! Hee.)

It was fun and being my first fair, I didn't really know what to expect! It was held at this lovely luxurious retirement home and met some of the sweetest gals there. Young and old. It was a good first experience for me. But sewing something more than twice or thrice really isn't what I call fun. For me, it took the fun out of creating something unique. But I did have lots of different handbags and caught a lot of attention! Even sold a couple of them.

I admire big time craft vendors who can devote 3-4 days with 10hrs or more a day at their booths. That's stamina for you! My hats off to them. So what am I complaining about?!??

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! Stay safe and healthy.
