I don’t like posting when I can’t find positive things to say, and life has been very… strained for several weeks.
Plans to visit my extended family went sideways, you could say.
KeyCon treated us very poorly as a vendor this year. Found our number well enough to demand more money. Lost it when it came time to discuss set up, despite attempts to contact them. Family said forget the stress and cut our losses, so… we did.
Positives to rise from the ashes of all that?
Once school is finished, I will take the Littles fishing this summer. (There are no in-service days for June.)
Strange Things Emporium also had a vendor table, so I still had items for sale (and didn’t have to worry about competing against myself if I’d attended). I am pleased at the amount of items that sold. I’m not sure that means I want to run out and rent a table next year, but I’ll tell anyone that wants to listen, someone bought a tote bag with my dragon on it :D
Next week I’m helping with another event.
Need to order supplies for ahem, personal body jewelry. One of the shops I semi-frequent showcases local artists. I’ve seen a very specialized niche I can fit into, so I’m thinking of making some product to bring in and promote myself. I just need to order the supplies… shame it takes a month or several to get stuff from China.
