HARVEST GATHERING HOME SHOW - GETTING CLOSER
It's getting closer to the date of my Harvest Gathering Home Show and I suppose I should be feeling nervous, but I'm just excited. I'm still making things daily and enjoying it so much. I guess the timing was finally right for getting back into sewing and crafting. I don't actually know what I was waiting for - except that maybe I wanted the stars and moon to align themselves and offer me a "sign", but of course, that didn't happen. One day, after much angst and conversation with a trusted friend, I finally made up my mind to stop hesitating and fence-sitting, and just try to DO a home show. I realize there might not be many people show up for my show, but one never knows for sure. I live in the country and I didn't put an ad in the local paper. I did, however, print fliers and post cards and add messages and photos on the timelines of a number of shops in my area. Today I'm hand-delivering some fliers to those shops and putting up posters in the stores I frequent. We'll see how that goes. I just about have my gathering room set up the way I want it and yesterday, my daughter affirmed her plans for baking some wonderful Fall treats to sell at the show. However it turns out, I'm going to continue to have fun with it. I'm posting some new photos on the side bar here since for whatever reason, I am still unable to post them in the text.
