Excuse me. Didn't mean to gross you out, but I got a barf worthy situation.
Remember last month when I wrote a reallllly long post about wanting to sell? (Thank you to all who took the time to read it.) Well that post led me to open an Etsy shop about 6 days later. Now one month later I get a message on Etsy. It's from a local Etsy shop who is curating a show in two weeks. (Yes in two weeks.) She wants to know if I am interested in being a part of an Art, Craft and Vintage Fair.
I read it again...
Is this spam?...
What is she talking about?
Oh hell!!! She's seen my shop on Esty and would like to know if I want to sell at the "May Day Art, Craft and Vintage Fair".
Wait this is spam right? ugh!
So I ask some additional questions about the fair. It looks very quaint, it's at a coffee house, using the coffee house's tables, but my initial response is no. My only reason for no is because it's in two weeks, and that would mean I need to make a lot of stuff in two weeks.
I mention it to my mom and she says "do it". "Uh mom hello it's in TWO WEEKS."
I'm leaning to say no, because how can I do what needs to be done in that amount of time. Any of you craft showers please let me know what time frames you work in to get stuff together for a show.
My bed room is now a sweat shop (don't think in the gutter), I start tracing and cutting out fabric like a mad(crazy) woman. I want to see how much I can get cut out and partially started before I give my answer. I got about 10 purses cut out, and 4 about 80% completed, but this is on a Sunday, 1/2 day with no kids.
So I gave my answer.
I don't know how I'm gonna do it, but I'm gonna hate myself for who knows how long if I don't give it a try. Might as well hate myself for failing then not trying at all...right?
Please any tips, tricks, suggestions, advice, about how to handle myself and this show. I know sit straight, brush my hair, and talk slow (my sisters will be there to remind me of that).
Seriously advice would be greatly appreciated.
