Craft Table Mock Up

I have been trying out some craft table displays in my living room.  This is just a little glimpse of one of the layouts.  By having my merchandise all out on show I have been able to see what I need to make more of and what not to include.  I am sure that there will be lots of mock ups until I am finally decided.  As I get nearer to the fair my productivity has slowed right down.  It is so difficult to preempt what people want to buy and I will just have to take the experience as a learning curve.

In other news: I had a personal singing lesson. I was pleased to hear that I have a good tone and range but disappointed to hear that my singing voice won't make me into a star!!!  (I already knew that!)  The singing teacher said that he thought my voice was 'alto' but changed it to soprano when I hit a top 'G' note with ease!  I don't know if I will have any more lessons or even take up the invite of joining the choir.  I am glad though,  that I went out of my comfort zone and performed the first verse of Amazing Grace in front of a total stranger with just a tape recorder playing the music.  Karaoke here I come!!!

Simone, your display is lovely. Creating layouts at home is such a good idea. I especially like your including soft lights behind your displays. Though your goal is to sell your goods, I hope you begin by creating what moves you. What you find comes from your heart. Your work is unique, fresh, well made. These are what attracts potential buyers and what will cause them to stop in front of your display. My best wishes in the few days remaining before the show.
Nice you moved out of your comfort zone to have a voice lesson. Singing with a group is a rewarding pastime. Any opportunities to join a choir or chorus in your area???

Okay, on Saturday :-) It's terrible exiting, and I look forward to hear about it as soon you have ‘survived’ and digested the experience. Please receive my best wishes for Saturday’s fair – good luck!

Wow! I've missed a lot since I've been away from my regular blog reading. So wonderful to see you fired up about the craft fair, Simone!

Congrats on the singing lesson. Maybe joining the choir would be just what you need. Could be a lot of fun.

Have a lovely week and don't stress over the fair. Once you get this one under your belt it sounds like you'll be ready to tackle more of them with ease!
