Hard to believe that 2023 is only 31 days away. Holy Guacamole Batman this year went fast.
My November was busy. Between the emergency trip to California to a slew of medical appointments for The Husband, November went FAST! I didn’t even get to make everyone crazy by putting up my Christmas decorations on November 1st!! I feel all outta sorts because of it! As a matter of fact (get ready to gasp!) I gave serious thought to NOT decorating at all this year! I KNOW RIGHT?!?! Me the 3 different trees and a million different decorations. Lucky for me The Husband pouted until I gave in and decorated on Thanksgiving Day. I can NOT be responsible for The Husband getting coal in his stocking because of all that pouting.
After the tree went up, I pulled out all the Christmas Craft projects. Wooooo my craft room looks like a bomb exploded. There is not a single space left on any countertop, tabletop, or workbench. The floor, I can’t even… I had to even move Winston to the top of my yarn basket. I don’t particularly like him there because I feel his judgy stare while I stand in the middle of myself made disaster.
All my craft cr@p is out, and my gal pal Penny called we can put crafts up at a local Christmas Craft fair. You have 3 days. Make some t-shirts! Sayyyy whaaaaaa??
I admit I have always wanted to try selling at craft fair, but I have BIG TIME confidence issues. I make things for family and friends. I have ever only sold 1 item. EVER! But Penny pushes me outta my comfort zone and off I go. Except remember how I said EVERY. SINGLE, WORK, SPACE, is covered. Well, now the room looks worse than I could ever imagine.
I did manage to make 10 t-shirts. Here is the part where I slap my hand to my forehead…. “CONSTANCE! Ya coulda made a SIMPLE design!” BUT NO NOT ME!! Note to self if I ever do this again. K.I.S.S Keep it simple stupid. Oh well, I will be happy if I sell even just one. Next year I will know better.
I did a quick snap of the shirts so, sorry about the quality of pictures but I wanted to keep track of designs.
Got our little booth all set up and bamb the first really heavy snow hit. It was quite the exciting ride home!
