When this little night owl gets up at 4:45am it’s either passion or craziness… or a little of each. For the last couple of weeks i’ve been working on launching a market stall at peregian beach markets and today was the day. I’ve been crafting for all my life, i’ve worked as a craft consultant, scrapbooking teacher, run endless school holiday craft programs and sold craft but never my own creations. When you show your art or craft to others it’s like baring your soul… so i had butterflies all day.
It was still pretty dark when i arrive at the markets, i navigate the pedestrian path in the Landcruiser and swipe a gazebo with the drivers side door, my daughter and a stall holder talk me through a five point turn til i get to my site. To sum it all up i had an encouraging day, so many people gave lovely feedback about my work…
into stylish covers for green shopping bags (note one of the sleeves has been turned into a pocket for the front!)
…and i’ve been breathing new life into tired glassware to make upcycled candle holders decoupaged with inspirational quotes.
So having tested the market and having people buy my creations has been very satisfying and i am looking forward to having more market stalls and refining my craft.
I went to bed very tired but soul satisfied. Thanks for reading my posts!
