Sometimes you have to take a leap. I have often said that what I do for a living isn't what defines me. It is what I choose to do with my spare time from which I get the most fulfillment. I love to make paper crafts and now I am taking a chance to sell some of my crafts at a local shopping event. It is kind of a big deal for me to put myself and my creations out there.
A lovely friend of mine runs a monthly shopping event called Urban Shopping and Cocktails. It was the perfect place to sell some paper crafts and get a little experience. The other vendors who see there were friendly and kind and the environment is really encouraging and supportive.
I made small 3x5 notebooks, 4x6 notebooks, Post-it note holders and cards to sell. In retrospect, I should have worked on my display a little more, but it was still such a lot of fun and I made over $100!
I hope to be able to participate in more events like this one in the future. It is nice to be able to do something that I love and share it with others while also making a little money to continue to fund my love of paper crafts.
Here is some photos from the event:
