I broke one of the candle holders when I went over a bump with my dolly and all of the boxes fell over off the cart. I was so greatful for all the vendors that stopped to help me pick up the broken glass and the boxes that fell on the ground. It is a pretty tight knit community and I am so thankful to be part of it.
I was so afraid that the wind would pick up and knock these over, I didn't display it as well as I should of. Needless to say, I didn't end up selling any of them. All that work for nothing. Maybe I will give them away as gifts to unsuspecting friends and family.
That's how it goes with crafts...you never know what will sell until you actually make it and bring it out to the market. My biggest sellers at a craft show are my onesies and my hairclips and the ornaments at Christmas time. Online I sell a whole lot of custom made banners and the favors. I definately need to get more products in my etsy store. There are so many onesies, hairclips, and t-shirts that need a new home...especially since my garage is filled with them :)
Such is my life as a crafter. It is a crazy handmade life. I don't know that I would change anything---except maybe I would like my own store so I don't have to keep transporting and breaking all of these craft projects of mine. Someday. Someday.
I'm still amazed that people actually want to pay for something that I made. It feels good knowing that I helped someone make a lasting impression through crafts. I guess that is why I will keep on doing this for as long as I can....that and I have so many supplies, I have to use them all up. One of these days, I will come up with a great creative idea, but until then, here's some of the other candle holders and jars that I made for your enjoyment.
