Craft Shows









Wow the summer will be here before we know it, and so will a lot of craft shows. I have found that I enjoy doing them a lot. Not only do you make some extra money, but you make friends too! I have met four people who I keep in touch with now and enjoy their company, and they enjoy my beads!!!
I did my first craft show in the beginning of May and took some pictures of my set up. Hopefully I will be able to figure out how to upload them here so you all can see. If not, I will figure it out and get them posted somehow.
I have been busy making beads and filling orders. Making a necklace, earrings and bracelet for the wedding I am attending this weekend. The Bride has also requested that I make a necklace, earrings and bracelet for her too! I am so excited that over 250 people will see my work.
Still looking for more ways to promote myself and my beads and jewelery. Its hard when you have a full time job and other things to take care of too.
another challenge I have is coming up with different ideas. Its easier in the summer as there are so many beautiful colorful flowers and shrubs that combinations come pretty easy. I guess I question what will the public like and what are their favorites. Hmmmm food for thought here why not send out a survey, I will have to think on that some more.
So stay tuned for pictures and my latest sets of beads to come out. also will be posting some new jewelry I have made on my website www.wilmas-whimseys.com.
So till the next time, enjoy and have a happy and safe summer and if you go on vacation may you have a wonderful time.
