Before all of that can happen you work very hard every week to finish something new so that you can look fresh and new for each show and then you have to pack the car and get to the event and for heaven's sake, don't leave anything at home like your receipt book, tent clips, business cards or drinking water. I've done all of that.
In spite of all of the careful planning and making lists, I always seem to forget some small but essential item.
In an earlier post I was making some gift items for a Mother's Day show in a blue and yellow palette. It was a creative challenge for myself to see what I could come up with.
