Sometimes it can be difficult to stay on track. Who am I kidding? I haven't been on track for months now and my challenge is getting BACK on track. And what better way than to dangle a carrot so I have something to reach for?
Now, not to get ahead of myself I am fully aware that they haven't even begun looking at submissions for vendors. It is a juried process, and given the fact that I've never done one of their shows before it is a reach to think I may be accepted. HOWEVER, it is a wonderful goal toward which to work. And the worst that can happen is that I am not accepted and I have to find another venue for selling all of the items I've been working on to have inventory in stock.
Like... more coasters:
maybe some more pot holder sets, and if I'm REALLY on top of it I'll perfect those darned oven mitts!
I was having a discussion with a couple of different friends recently about the efficacy of Etsy. It really is great to have as a passive option for selling one's wares, but I'm feeling it's well past time to find other more effective venues. So, fingers crossed I'll get into this holiday show — but if I don't it has at least gotten me thinking about more possibilities.
Do you all use some of these self-guiles to get things done, too??
