One thing I've come to appreciate this year even more so than ever is my customers. I had several customers return from last year, and even more who visited me and purchased from me at multiple shows this year. One such customer even purchased my favorite piece in my inventory, but I was happy to let it go to her because I knew she appreciated it as much as I did. Creating and then selling art can be a difficult process - I make things I love and it's sometimes VERY hard to let them go. But the awesome customers I have make the whole process easier.
If you're a crafts person and you want to start doing shows, feel free to email me. I'm happy to share what I've learned over the years. I continue to learn with each show, and it's a process that's getting easier as I get more shows under my belt.
Now that this show season is done, I'm back in the studio creating, organizing, and refilling my soul only the way that working with my hands at a creative endeavor can do. I have more ideas and projects I want to tackle than I have hours in the day, but I'm looking forward to sharing as many of them with you as I can.
