Farmers Market Fun..

Despite my surprising pregnancy news, and lack of a table and tent. I gathered my jewelry and sat up late Friday night pricing and sorting the "ugly, what were you thinking" stuff out. I planned to make children bracelets and more earrings. But Mark shut the lights out and dragged me to bed. Needless to say I did not sleep very well. Failure kept coming in to my head. If I had not promised Jackie Kite from City of Lake City Rep. I would show up, I would have stayed home.  I planned to get up at 5:30 am and finish making more pieces, I slept till 6:30 got up and printed out more business cards and packed everything. Got Mark and Mason up. We headed out the door. I met Jackie and her partner at the Lake and she managed to get me a table. We set up with what we had around the house for displays. I have never participated in a Market/Fair and was very out of place. Of course I wore a black long sleeve shirt. We were on the end, In direct sun. Marks beach umbrella would not stay up. It could not have been more funny. Mason had a good time. He sat in his stroller and smiled at each curious face.

I forgot we would need change so I borrowed $50.00 from my grandmother and promised to pay it back at the end of the day. Mark had to run to the bank and cash her check. I made my first sale while he was gone. A pair of earrings for $5.00. That made me feel good. I said I would be happy with just one sale. I made $116.00 in the 5 hours we were their. Some items got more notice than others, but did not sale. I will post pictures of what I did sale. I was very happy that I made enough to pay my grandmother and buy my own tent. I walked away from this experience with money and a sunburn. It was well worth it! If any of my more experienced friends have any suggestions please let me know. Happy Mothers Day Everyone!!

Another baby on the way

The past few months I have noticed that I have been exhausted and moody. I blamed this on  the never ending household duties and my son Mason. Come to find out I am 9 weeks pregnant. This is wonderful, but I would have like to had spaced Mason and the baby out. I was taking Errin birth control faithfully every morning. I am very scared about having them 14 months apart. Mark told his family today and yesterday. I have procrastinated on telling my family. I know it will all work out in the end. Just a little stressed right now.

I thought about joining in on my towns Farmers Market, Now looks like I may need to cancel. :(
