I’ve been a little preoccupied with other things lately. I had my craft show and it was not a success, so that was kind of disappointing. After all the work I had done, I didn’t even sell enough to cover my table cost. I decided that I am not doing any more craft fairs. It’s just too much work for no payoff, especially since every show seems to be filled with vendors selling retail, like Silpada jewelry or Scentsy candles. It makes it almost impossible for those of us who work hard to make our product ourselves to compete. Especially since people see a brand they recognize and they automatically buy from them.
However, I may have an announcement regarding Little Silver Stars very soon, so stay tuned. Exciting things are happening, and I may be taking my shop in a new direction. We’ll see…!
In the meantime, the house is covered with twinkling lights inside and out, and the She & Him Christmas Album is on heavy rotation on my ipod. I haven’t done too many handmade gifts this year, but if I get time I still might. But there are only 14 short days left to go.
I think it is because I finally have a job I love and that doesn’t possess all my time and my thoughts. I can go to work, come home and not think about it. I have made some really great new friendships and I’ve found time again to nurture the friendships I already have. I’m not consumed with worry, fear or dread anymore, and I can’t tell you enough how good it feels.
I’m also super happy that my sister finally met someone. He seems to really like her and she seems to really like him. She has someone to spend the holidays with this year and that gives me more joy than anything. She deserves real happiness, and I think she’s going to find it. Plus we all get along really well, and I’m looking forward to hanging out!
How about all this warm and fuzzy shit huh? Hahaha!
Anyway, I’ll end this gushy post with my Fizzie and Bella ornaments. These are the stars on my tree every year, my two sweet babies. Goodnight all!
