Hello, dear readers! May this new year be filled with lots of pretty things and bring you much inspiration, joy and many many happy moments!here for inspiration). For years I've been watching people make these and have always wanted to journal my December but I had two obstacles - the first being what most busy moms have - lack of TIME! Especially in December! This however is exactly why taking some notes and photos and putting it all together in a book is such a powerful way to live those moments with full awareness. I will share a tip with you on how I managed to squeeze time for journaling in my next post.
I'll be back tomorrow with lots more details on how I made this album and peaks of the inside pages and photos!
On another note.....you might recall....before I signed off to a "small" blogging break in December (whoa! time flies!) it was just before my first market experience. Some of you already know from following my facebook page that it was a great experience; I am very happy to report that my crafts show was quite a success! It was a combination of many good things - I do not underestimate the support of my family & friends - it was frosty, subzero weather for hanging around outside for the entire weekend – but I believe the snowy and sunny winter weather added to the charm and brought lots of visitors to the Christmas market. While it was a very small market, no one else had products like mine so that certainly was positive, too.
I am quite pleased with the many sales I made and the public response to my hand-made products in general. While it's fun to sell on etsy and dawanda and mail packages around the world (places far a little far away like the Netherlands and places was on the the other side of the globe like USA - Canada – Australia – even Hong Kong!) it was a real pleasure to talk to my customers face to face. It was also fun to see what a fabulous accountant and salesman my middle son is! More local shows will definitely be in the future for me (and I hope my son wants to join me again!).
See you tomorrow with more December Daily notes!
