I have pretty much been consumed with our first time Potters for Pets event this weekend at the CNY SPCA in Syracuse, NY. My husband Bill and I have spent a ton of time, along with the Developmental Director, Theresa Para to prepare this first time event. This all started with an idea from my son CJ who works there.
I have been a crazy person starting yesterday making sure I have inventory.... nothing like waiting until the pressure is on!! Last night I got a few new pieces made. I have such a hard time switching from making bracelets to earrings to necklaces. Last night I decided I would take my own advice and let my hands do the work and not let my brain interfere.
This is what I came up with (I still need to work on my picture taking skills)..... that'll be down the road.... probably in the distant future!
And my bracelets.... quick pic this morning.
I amaze myself that I am able to pull anything off with the way I work! I wish I had a more focused brain...
I would never have enough inventory to fill up a booth by myself, so fortunately, I do these shows with Bill and it is mainly his pottery. I find that the older I get, teaching all day poops me out! Maybe one day after retirement I will get better at this inventory stuff!
And, like everything else I do, I realized that I didn't order the little 3 x 5 bags that I love to use. They do end up costing me about 46 cents a bag, but customers always comment on them. Hopefully, my papermart.com order will be here before weeks end.
These are linen and they come in an assortment of sizes. I love them!!
Wish us luck! I did have a post started about how to create a successful show, but I don't know if it will be successful or not, so I will wait until after. I hope to take plenty of pictures. If you're local, we'd love to have you!
There are on Facebook http://facebook.com/cnypottersforpets and I also created a website (I tend to go a litte overboard)! http://pottersforpets.com.
Since I mentioned the website, I would recommend wix.com for website building. It is, by far, the easiest I have ever used!
