In My Studio – April 16

Posted by lori . 10 Comments


This past week was busy, busy, busy.  I made a button flag for Wednesday’s “Try Me” project.

I made two new yarn vases.


I prepared for the All Things Handmade & Vintage Spring Market.  I set-up my table at home and got everything arranged.

I took pictures, so I could reference them at the show.

It worked out really well.  I carried everything in and had my table set up in 35 minutes.

Boy, oh boy…I didn’t do well at the show.  Two sales.  It was a wonderful show; I just didn’t have popular items.  Maybe I’ll pick up a few new readers.

Thank goodness, little bear didn’t sell.  I priced him aggressively so that only someone worthy could purchase him.  So glad that person didn’t show up.


I did a couple art journal pages…


and painted (sort of) four owls.


I’m worn out!

    Two sales ain’t dat bad really…considerin’ you prolly hasn’t done many shows so far. But nobuddy is worthy of dat bear, I’m just sayin’.

    I’m exhausted just reading it all! Perhaps the bear just isn’t meant to be sold. I think it’s tough to know what will sell at certain events until you’ve been there. All shows sort of have their own flavor!

  • Patty says:

    I’m sorry you didn’t sell more. Your display was beautiful. Keep the bear for yourself. 🙂
    You definitely did a lot this week.

    Sorry to hear you didn’t do well at the craft show. Your table was very impressive though!

  • Penelope says:

    I remember the very first show I did. It cost me big time to get in. It was for 3 days, and I only sold 3 things! The next time I was at the show I did very well. And I’ve found that with other shows, the first time people who come are checking you out and then they buy the next time and every time after that.
    BTW – Noce set up!

    Love your yarn vases and owl paintings in progress. Busy week for sure! Finding the right customer and mix of attendees at a craft show is so tough! Your table looks great and your bear is so cute.

    You have been busy!!! I love all your work, but especially the art journals. By any chance, do you know any online photo classes – like the painting class you took?

  • YOu have been super busy! I’m sorry about the sales, but maybe the bear isn’t meant to be sold

  • It can be so disheartening sometimes to participate in shows like that and not sell much. But 2 sales is better than no sales, and for the record, your display looked great. Very professional. Sometimes it’s just the wrong venue, or the planets not being aligned. 🙂 Don’t give up. Glad you got to keep little Bear. xoxo
