Do You Blossom In Spring?

Oh my gosh....if I don't get my workshop cleaned up I am not going to be able to start working on new things. Right now everything from the craft show is piled up on my workbench and on the floor...boxes upon boxes.

Irv and I were brainstorming and I we are seriously considering setting up my booth in the driveway as soon as the weather is a bit warmer and having my own little craft show/clearance sale. I wouldn't lose any money! HAHA! We really are thinking about it. I am sure I could even find some supplies I will never use that I could sell. Crazy idea?

I made a connection at the show too....there was a girl that came over to my booth and said that she had tried selling older china on e-bay and it didn't go well for her. She has boxes of stuff that she wants to get rid of! How perfect is that? She's going to photograph some of it and e-mail me so I can get an idea of what she has. I'm hoping to get some great stuff for future projects.

Tresa also has a lady in her building that sells all kinds of stuff, including dishes, at flea markets. She going to ask her where she is going to be this spring. I got some really great deals from her last fall.

Why do I need all the china? Well, I will be doing some cake stands for the consignment shop....and......some other things. Sorry, still can't tell you. I will show you once I get what I need and get some made. I can't wait!!

Got a couple of other things up my sleeve as well. It is spring and things will be blossoming outside and in my workshop. Are you making any changes this spring in your business or your personal life? Spring just feels like the perfect time for change doesn't it?

Good idea about the driveway sale. On a pretty day you just might draw a crowd. I created a Facebook page; don't really want it or like it, but felt like I had to try it. Otherwise I'm not making any changes. Happy with the way things are going right now.

Hi Kathy! Thanks for your visit!! I know what you mean about papers and fabrics - I was thinking how fun it would be to find some of those papers as fabrics...

Your spring ideas sound wonderful!! I always find that spring is a time I want to clean out and clear out. And then see what that inspires in new ideas and new projects.

Sorry the craft show was such a sleeper. Your driveway sale sounds like a great alternative... :)

Happy Tuesday! Love, Silke

i love your driveway sale idea! here people would expect yard sale prices, though, so i'm not sure that would work for me unless i was just clearing out...

as for spring and changes, yes! i always feel it is a great time for a good growth spurt! at least i always feel i have renewed energy at this time of year...

Yes, it does seem like the perfect time for a change. Do you have local flea markets where you can set up a booth? I know we have a couple in our town. Setting up in the yard sounds good to me if you are in a good traffic area. And moms taking kids to school are ready for yard sales this time of year!
Love your flower photos.

I think your idea sounds brilliant! And why not sell the supplies you won't use? I would!
That spring cleaning bug has definitely bit you hard!

I think a driveway sale is a great idea. Can't wait to see what new things you have up your sleeve.
