Deluxe weekend

On Saturday I had my first show, Deluxe, at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. When I get excited I'm unable to sleep, so I was up 'til 4:30 Saturday morning getting everything ready. Friday night rolled around and I had no banner or tablecloth, so I dug through the stash of fabric my grandmother left me, and attempted to learn how to sew. My mom got me a sewing machine for my birthday five years ago that I had never used (I was intimidated), so once I figured it out, I pieced together the hap-hazard tablecloth you see pictured. Now that I have some more free time, I want to practice my sewing and see what I can do.

Anyway, back to Deluxe...

It was a really good first show, I think. I didn't know quite what to expect, so I'm happy with the outcome. I had women of all ages fawning over my jewelry, and the compliments really encouraged me. I hope to do more craft shows in the near future.
It was nice to meet people I've become internet friends with. Pam from Pamela Michelle even bought a necklace from me, which is awesome because I consider her pretty famous. I met Heather from Audrey Eclectic for the first time (her works are even more breathtaking in person!) and the super-sweet Holly of Hollyrocks.
I only wish we all got to hang out more, but we were there to sell, and sell we did.
So, great job everyone!

    I have never done a craft show myself even though i would love to. I have oodles of peices of handmade jewellery and illustrations which i would love to sell, i just wish that england hosted something like deluxe. Well done again on a good show.
