First Gift of the Season!
To backtrack, I had two shows last weekend. One, on Saturday, was really slow (it rained, and even though Philadelphians should be able to tolerate weather -- it was 50 stinking degrees, after all -- they weren't coming out in it). It was one of those sad days consisting mostly of vendors shopping from each other.
Sunday, on the other hand . . . Sunday was five hours outside in mid-30 degree weather, and it passed in about an hour and a half. It was that busy.
I also sold so much I officially don't have enough stock for this coming weekend. Talk about first world problems!
So yesterday, I got up, made 15 Christmas stockings, did a 3 hour cashier shift at my local Arts League craft sale (almost no customers, lots of reading), went to Mario's office Christmas party, went to a holiday party at Philadelphia Independents, a local store that carries my work, did some food shopping at Trader Joe's and then came home and watched a movie. (More on the movie later; I have a recommendation for everyone).
I met up with a crafting friend at Philadelphia Independents. Danni Morinich doesn't sell through that shop (yet), but she will. She brought some soap samples, and brought me a little present for encouraging her (otherwise known as being my usual pain-in-the-ass self). Isn't it fabulous? It completely covers my life at the moment -- teddy bear, scissors and sewing machine!
Here's a link to her Etsy shop and her wonderful soaps. My favorite is Mrs. Patmore's Soap for Cooks. How can you resist a Downton reference? And I love Mrs. Patmore!
