Where I'll be!
This weekend is the first of my holiday markets coming up. I will be at Crafts and Drafts in downtown St. Petersburg. I have to say I am a little nervous. When I was little I used to go to the shuffleboard courts where it is being held and play with my brother. It was great fun! That seems like a million years ago. Now I will be taking my new business there to see what people think. Really it’s pretty exciting! I've met some wonderful people, all caring and willing to help me in my newest adventure....this business I am working so hard to create. I will have new Holiday Cards to present!! Tom my terrific husband will also be there with me for great extra added support. It sounds like a wonderful time in St. Pete this weekend so I hope you are able to stop by and say hello!Admission is $5 but each attendee will receive a commemorative Crafts & Drafts tote bag and a portion of the event's proceeds will benefit Humane Society of Tampa Bay. There will also be other fun family activities. Food will be available for purchase from Taco Bus, Jimmy Sliders and Cake Bus. Crafts & Drafts is a pet-friendly event!

Yesterday was an awesome day! I met a lot of new people, customers and vendors. The weather was perfect and everyone I met was so friendly. It started out a little chaotic with marking out our spots...we had to move our canopy several times but it all got straightened out and finally we were in our spot. The next hurdle was carrying everything in without the handcart...we thought we would be able to bring the car in to our spot so we did not bring it with us. The awesome man from the Cake Bus came to our rescue. He helped us move everything. He was just amazing!!! From there the day just kept getting better and better. One customer even said "These cards are badass!" I was pretty floored at that description. Karen from Maravillosa Jewelry Designs helped me to figure out how to take charges and loaned me her Etsy app so that I did not lose any sales! I do feel so blessed and encouraged after all the comments. It was just a wonderful day! Thanks to everyone who came out to see us. Next week Shopapalooza!!!
