ok, so i've been making christmas cards like a crazed woman for about a month now. i've made less than 200, and i'm christmas'ed out already!! i have a craft fair coming up on sunday and one voice is telling me that i won't have enough for the season, and another voice saying 'what if they don't sell' and i've wasted all this time, money and product. then there's another voice telling me to just grab a glass of wine and chill.
do i stop? do i see how the fair goes and let that dictate my next moves?
HELP !amazed !amazed !amazedNovember 17, 2010 at 5:16 am #72681
have the glass of wine and chill……. 🙂 🙂 yes wait and see how the fair goes… I used to make handpainted silk scarves for years and sell them at fairs..some were great …other times not so much. But if they dont sell at this one you can go to another one right! Just never get frustrated. See how the first one goes I say …..and goooooooood luck 🙂November 17, 2010 at 10:21 am #72683November 17, 2010 at 10:27 am #72684November 17, 2010 at 10:38 am #72685
relax and enjoy that wine!!! I think they will sell too….but if some don't, don't worry about it…Christmas cards never go out of sytle,November 17, 2010 at 11:20 am #72686
Awww, you poor thing!!! Drink the wine and chill. Always good advice. Is this your first show? You will have a much better feel for things after this. I would say that from here on out, make a few if you fee like it, but don't stress yourself out because then it isn't fun and enjoyable for you anymore. Good luck!!November 17, 2010 at 12:34 pm #72687
Do people really need a reason to drink wine?
Shell, drink the wine and chill. I would stop now and see how the fair goes. Like they said, you take orders! And GOOD LUCK!!!!!!November 17, 2010 at 1:06 pm #72682
I agree with everyone else…grad the wine, relax, everything will go well!November 17, 2010 at 1:11 pm #72689November 17, 2010 at 1:20 pm #72690
Good luck, Shell! Relax with some wine for now and then enjoy the fair!November 17, 2010 at 2:18 pm #72691

Just enjoy the wine — I'm sure you will sell quite a bit and if you don't,like Robin said…Christmas Cards never go out of style….you should see my stash of them…LOLNovember 17, 2010 at 2:32 pm #72688
Here here – we are all coming over to chill with a glass of wine.
Look, what is the worst thing that can happen if you sell out????? You simply sell out. You could have made more money, at what cost? A breakdown and being grumpy to your family? Not worth the cost.November 17, 2010 at 3:36 pm #72693
Okay, Shell, we're tuing you into a wino!!!! ;D
But, sure, take the wine and a deep breath and relax. Take them to the fair, see what happens and relax some more. Kathy's right, btw, Christmas Cards never go out of style……November 17, 2010 at 3:40 pm #72692
