Well, what can I say…it’s definitely been a busy year so far. To kick the new year off, we had a wonderful relaxing holiday to the Caribbean, which was Devine, just what we needed before we set off for a busy year ahead.
What with trade shows, agricultural shows and craft fairs booked in, it was a daunting prospect, thinking about what I needed to make and make quickly. But here we are, almost in June (I can’t quite believe it) and I’m embracing each show as it comes my way.
I exhibited my debut collection of greetings cards at my first ever trade show in February…Spring Fair at the NEC…wow! What an experience that was. I thought I was prepared enough, but in hindsight, no…I still have so much to do, tweak, learn and put into practice for next time.
I’ve started to sell to a couple of independent shops, fairly local to me in North Wales, but have decided to venture out a bit further to Somerset, to exhibit in The Royal Bath and West show…only ended up winning the Gold medal for best trade stand in the gift and lifestyle marquee!!! #chuffedtobits
It’s been great to meet so many lovely new people whilst being away, but I must admit, it’ll be so nice to get back home to my two favourite people. I’m missing them so much, but you’ve just got to do what you’ve got to do. Well I shall sign off for now and catch up with you guys really soon…best get making, ready for the next show…toodle pip!
