Arts and Dannas

June 3, 2012

The craft show has come and gone... and even though I was ridiculously sick and exhausted I think still it went well! All the vendors had a good time talking and getting to know each other in the breaks from shoppers. Lots of networking to be had, that's for sure! At the end of the day almost everyone expressed interest in doing another show at the clubhouse. We are thinking some time late August, as it may not be available to us after September 1st.
I learned a lot from this show. It was my first time organizing anything more than a simple birthday party! Here's a few bits of wisdom that would have probably been super helpful to me before embarking on this: Find volunteers and line them up with specific jobs, and start on signs the minute you have the date and time set. Seriously. I think this is why the day before the show I woke up with a terrible sore throat and a mild fever that just got worse as the day went on. Oh, another bit of advice? Stock up on lots of cold medicine if you are the type of person that stresses themselves sick.

Me at my booth with a fever. I think I had to sit down after that, smiling takes lots of energy when sick!
