So much going on...

so the craft show this weekend was a flop. and i hate saying that. it was so sad, because there was a huge turn out of vendors/crafters. i was so excited when i showed up at the amount of cars i saw being unloaded. but i only made 2 sales!! and some didn't sell a thing. i couldn't believe that for all the advertising i saw and the amount of crafters there that the attendance was so low. but it was a fun chance to chat with the regular girls, and meet some new faces. i am hoping it isn't an indicator of shows to come! i have 2 this week.
i got the cupcake soaps done that we had spent the entire week creating, and debuted them at this show. everyone thought they were cute, but walked on by! i was frustruated yet relieved that they didn't sell so it didn't mess up my arrangement on the cute cupcake stand i had found. i only made enough to fill it, so there would have been holes and it would have driven me crazy. i am ordering more soap as we speak to start back logging some cupcakes to fill in holes if needed in the future!
So my horoscope this morning told me to go out, spend money, and buy those things i wanted but didn't really need-i swear to you. so, while i was at the mall to run into bath & body works, i met an incredible crafter, Aubrey of Aubrey's Candles and Crafts! she had great wax dipped snowman that appeared to be melting, electric snowman candles, flicker snowman candles, and wax dipped toilet paper just to name a few items. her creations were right up my alley, so i bought a melting snowman. she said she had done really well there at the mall with their craft show. so i am going to contact the mall to see about participating in future events!!! and she gave me some insight about having a website. she was having the same issues that i am. so it is making me think harder on canceling the website. this was an exciting find today! i love my snowman, met someone new, and found a possible show!! that makes 2 news shows for the weekend! all in all, wasn't so bad!
i know i need to post some pics-i will be working on this this week. not such a crazy week with creating, so i will have some time to start taking new pics. i can't wait to show you what we have been creating for the holidays!
remember to get out to vote on tuesday-thank goodness it is almost over! this will be my first year voting so i am excited yet a bit nervous on how it works. i'll be taking to you soon!
