What a Rush!

Today I went to a holiday bazaar. Well, I should say I participated in it. It was a last minute kind of thing and they were so nice to let me in. I thought it was going to be a bust because there really weren't too many people that came, but right in the last half hour I got 3 orders and a lady who said her daughter had been wanting to host a toy party for awhile and could we do it this week while she was in town. Woot! So hopefully that will pan out, but in the meantime I did get some exposure and I passed out a whole stack of catalogs. Hope that was a good investment... :)

Next Saturday I'm in a much bigger bazaar with tons of publicity so hopefully that will be much better. Today was probably a really good thing though because I realized some of the things I thought would work don't and I need to do some other things instead. Yeah, that was real clean wasn't it?

Cory was a super trooper! (and a super charmer, but you all already knew that!) Brian was at a teacher's convention until this afternoon so I had him with me all day and no place to put him down at all. He did finally fall asleep in my arms for about half an hour, but that was all the nap he had all day and he wasn't fussy at all. I was really glad for that and then since it was just around the corner from our house Brian came to get him at the end when he got home so he could have a real nap.

But really, the best part of the day? Was when I got home (after I took a nap, too!) and realized that I had just sold stuff to people I didn't know! And that means profit. I'm actually running my own business! How crazy is that?

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog last week! It is always great to meet new people. What is up with Walmart phasing our their craft section? The Walmart in our town completely got rid of theirs to make room for food!
