This time we lost a week of creating, because the date was moved up a week and I worked on goods for it right until we pulled out of the driveway for setup! My hand is still buzzing and my fingers are numb, but slowly subsiding. This is the first time I've experienced that, so will be more watchful.... need that hand for stitching!
It's so much harder than it used to be for us. Caring for my mom takes it's toll on us in many ways, but I am glad she got to witness some of my creating and see the show photos..... It brought the show to life for her.
I do not have a moment of time for any special orders because I got wiped out at the show, more so than year's past, and have to take care of my shopkeepers first. I am working on finishing up some cute one of a kinds for Hidden Treasures for her big event this weekend.... .... and then afterwards I am taking a break for a bit and enjoying the holiday.
Our plans this coming year are to do the same shows as this past year. Nothing more, nothing less.... that keeps it about as exciting as these two creators can handle.
