We love to craft and want to share our love with the world! Well, maybe not the whole world...yet.

New Things

I (Christa) know Art on the Avenue was over two weeks ago, but this is the first chance I've had since then to actually sit down and write about it! What a great experience! I left feeling so inspired to make new, summery creations and so ready to do another event.

Let me start by saying my only experiences trying to "sell" something before this were retail jobs. I remember working at a store that I will leave unnamed that wanted employees to check in with people no less than twice while they were shopping. As a shopper that annoyed me and as an employee it just made me uneasy and anxious. I learned to do my job, but never loved that aspect of it. I knew that Art on the Avenue would not be like my previous retail job, but I still felt the anxiousness of trying to sell something. Thankfully once we got there and set up all of those nervous and unsure feelings were gone! Our set up was so fun and I really just enjoyed seeing people look around. I felt no uneasiness when greeting people who came to check out our tent. I guess it's probably very different, too, to be selling handmade items that I "believe" in. I really hope that we are able attend at least one more craft event this summer, but would love if we ended up doing more. My one regret is that I didn't get to walk around and see anyone else's booths.
