learning as i go

 { I have never sold my wares in real life. }

To say I am not nervous would be a lie. 
To say I know what I am doing would be a huge tall tale.
 I am figuring things out as I go. 
In fact, I am not ready. 
But will I ever really be ready? 

I am a perfectionist by nature and want everything to be amazing; outstanding; better than everyone else. I don't want to feel inadequate. I don't want my booth to look like the booth that is "clearly new at this." 

With all that said, I am finding joy in this newfound creative outlet; a new endeavor to conquer. 

A challenge that I could not take on with out the love and encouragement from you. 
**Thank you** for your comments, words of encouragement, excitement for my work, kind words, sweet notes, and bits of advice.

You inspire and motivate me.
 I want to succeed this weekend for me, but also to share my success stories with you!

i can only imagine how you must be feelings...lots of emotions...anxious, excited, nervous, frazzled, busy, happy, scared....

The fact that you are putting yourself out there and DOING IT...that in itself is golden. Your determination and bravery (i am terrified of having a craft booth...I too am a perfectionist) inspire me. I am so excited for you! I cannot wait to hear all about it. And honestly...what's the worst that could really happen? Either way, the next time you do a craft show, you will do even better than the time before, and so on. Why? Because you are a perfectionist :)

Ill be thinking of you this weekend!! Hugs!

I'll bet you are nervous, but as an owner of a Hiya Luv original I can tell you that your work speaks for itself. You're going to do awesome, and I can't wait to hear all about it!

I know exactly how you feel! I'll be participating in my first craft fair in October, only 2 weeks after getting married. I am SUPER nervous! Lots of sweet ladies have given me advice/tips, but I still kind of feel like I have NO idea what I'm doing...Be sure to share your wisdom after your first one! I'm sure you'll be fabulous. :)

You'd be crazy if you weren't feel a little nervous, but you're also going to be amazing. You and I both know how talented and creative you are, and I know that this is going to be the best learning experience. Try not to worry about it being perfect-remember that whatever happens, you're going to grow so much from the experience!

Jessica @ Barefoot by the Sea said...

Best of luck this weekend - it will be great and nobody will know it's your first. You'll be fabulous!
