Busy Day

Today was my first craft show! It was a smaller one but I think it went well. There was not a lot of people there, but I sold to 8 different people. I am happy with the turnout.

However, I am not happy with my set up. I would like to get my logo, business cards, packaging, a banner, table cloth, labels and some tiered displays. I just think that it looked pretty amateur today, and I would like to make it look more professional. I also would like to have more variety for products because not everyone takes bathes. I would like to make some soap, lip balm, and liquid soap.

But all this takes money. Lots of money that I can't invest right now. So it is either start small and slow, or get a business loan. And the thought of getting a business loan scares me a bit!

After the craft show I quickly went home to change for the bridal shower tea party that I helped plan. It turned out great and was a lot of fun. After that we went to Brennevins for supper for Eric's cousin's birthday. I probably spent 1/2 an hour at home today! I am exhausted!

hey Lindsey! glad the craft sale went well for you :)
I have a great website that does really cheap business stuff (everything from cards to banners, stationary, mugs, etc) that's super cheap... and if you're on their mailing list, they send you free offers/discounts ALL the time!
it's called Vistaprint.

Hope you like it!
