So I decided to go outside of my comfort zone, and try a fun gift show. It was held at the Riverwoods Conference Center in Logan, UT. As you can see from the picture, it's a really nice place. I didn't do as well as i would have liked, but I meet some great people, learned a few good lessons, and made enough money to make it worth it. If you asked me if i would do it again. I would say yes! defiantly, just not in the middle of the semester while I'm taking 14 credits. I was kind of crazy, but that's what makes life fun.
Riverwoods Conference Center
I spent a lot of time and money making these 8 super cute bags, but bags were being sold at almost every booth for much cheaper, and I wasn' willing to sell mine for less then what there worth, so i didn't sell one bag. I got like a thousand
"O THOSE ARE SO CUTE, ADORABLE, ect. ect.I'm hoping to still sell them on e-bay, KSL, or something I'm not sure.
This picture is of Asher and I hanging out in front of our booth.
I made about 30 sets of fridge magnates and everybody loved them. I had a few different sayings on them, and I sold every single one but 2 sets.
I feel that this was my biggest mistake. I absolutely loved the idea. I made recipe boxes. I got some cute paper, with a clear recipe box, with 6 tabs and I laminated them. I made 20 boxes and only sold 4. I don't think they sold because anybody could look at the cute things, and make it in their sleep. O well, It was a good lesson learned. Now I'm not sure what I'm going to do with 16 more recipe boxes.
These were my pride and joy. They are my secret design. I sold 5 lamps out of 6 that i made.
So After I completed my gift show on Saturday, I had a full week of paper writing. If I though I went crazy getting ready for my gift show, I was about to find out my brain could go a little further. I seriously went more insane then I have ever have before in my life. I couldn't think straight, So during the week I accidentally shaved the bottom half of Asher's head bold while giving him a hair cut, I lost everything I put in my hands, and I spend so much time on facebook it was disgusting. I'm so grateful that week is over. But I did accomplish writing 24 pages. Including:
14 pages written on my home-visit write-up for Infancy and early childhood development
4 pages written on sibling abuse for my abuse and neglect class
6 pages paper written on the debate of weather of not moderate alcohol consumption is good for your health
All i can say is I"M SO GRATEFUL IT"S THANKSGIVING BREAK!!
