First Bow Show

Few weeks ago I had my first bow show. It was at a kids consignment resale. The 2 weeks prior to being there I worked hard. This was the first time out in public with my bows. The display had to be good. Hubby layed it out online and all the materials were purchased.

My inventory was so scarce that I had to work quick to fill it up. After the 2 weeks of work we got it pulled together. Can I say that hubby even helped me cut ribbon that I needed to make the bows. He was a tremendous support and help. What a great accomplishment for the both of us. However, I was not able to make a sale. They told me it had to do with liability?? I didnt question much because I was excited for the opportunity. It also gave me some experiance before I thrust myself into the crafting world.

Speaking of which, I have a few craft shows I am lining up for the fall. Hoping that my inventory gets vastly improved before then. Im afraid that I will either be mobbed or deserted. I opt for being mobbed. Momma needs a new pair of shoes!

Fridays Finest

Tonights supper is pizza. We (really my husband) likes to go out for pizza. Well, he likes
to go out anytime. As if he is the one that cooks. He has no interest in it other than
consuming the food that is cooked.

Like I was saying before I went off on a bit of a tangent - tonight is pizza. That means
I am in the process of making the crust. Actually its in the process of rising. In a warm spot.
Outside. On the window ledge. Yes, when I went to my car earlier it said 107 degrees. Crazy!
Maybe not accurate, but crazy!! So while the crust is rising I have a few minutes on my hands.
Few minutes! Really. Who am I kidding.

My blog has been severly neglected. I thought now would be a good time to update a little bit.
My shop has been keeping me quite busy. Im beginning to gear up for craft shows. I have one lined
up so far. I need to make calls for more. And come to think of that I should have done that this afternoon.

Anyways. I have a couple bow of the month (BOTM) clubs. All the invoicing was completed for it yesterday. The bow was completed on Thursday.

It may be one of my current favorites.

Ill work on updating more often. Kid(s) are back to school so that means
Ill be getting up to help one off to school.
