Air Force and Craft Fairs

Well, no progress yet in enlisting my son. Went and got the required note from the doctor, but it was not worded right, so they want a second opinion. Son is going into school today, and will hopefully remember to set up a appointment with the nurse to have her check him out, a back up plan is to take him to the nearest clinic and see if it is something they can do. All this is delaying his processing, but we are doing the best we can do with what is given to us, he really wants this, so we are doing what we can to get him in.

On to better news, our first craft fair is coming up on Saturday. We have everything packed and ready, set up is at 8 am, and it starts at 10 and runs til 4. It will probably take that long to set up the racks for display of our items. My husband got these monsters given to him from a old blockbuster store when it closed, so he is bound and determined to use them, I just hope they aren't too much.

I am trying not to get my hopes up that I will be able to sell most of my things, but it would seem that when people can physically see and touch my quilted item they are more willing to buy them. I have been told by numerous people that my pictures on my web stores are not up to snuff. I have tried retaking them, but to no avail. Either the background is too dark, the quilts to big and they look like they were tossed into the picture, or they are just not clear pictures. I don't make enough money to pay a professional so I am hoping to sell all the inventory I have at the craft fairs I have signed up at, and shut the two handmade shops down by the end of the year. What is left will probably be given out as Christmas gifts and I do have graduations coming up as well, we shall see.


  1. I'm sure everything will turn out alright in the end, just have patience.


  2. Good luck with the craft fair this weekend! Hope you'll do very well, and don't forget to take some pictures of your booth:)
    I can imagine big quilts would be a real challenge to photograph!
