A Lesson and a Prize

I did my last Design Hive of the year yesterday. It was a pretty busy show, with much better attendance than previous shows this fall. Folks must be getting into the holiday purchasing mindset. I mean after all, some of the big stores have had holiday gear out since Labor Day (I promise not to rant about this right now...).

If I hadn't shot myself in the foot, I'd be doing the December Design Hive as well, and most likely making a killing there. But no. I decided not to sign up for it because I was applying to a couple bigger handmade shows and hoped to sell even more pieces. Only thing is, I got denied from both of them, leaving me show-less for the busiest time of the year. Please learn this lesson from me, and not on your own. I am a professional at learning the hard way.

All that behind me, there were some amazing artisans at the show. As usual, I left with a little prize for myself.

This excellent set of blank cards from Weehah! were much too tempting for me. As you may already know, I gravitate towards all things chicken nowadays.

In addition to those cards, I left with a couple of custom orders in my folder. I am super excited about these special necklaces and will be sharing them with you once they're done.

Happy November!
