Life Lately

Life has been a little crazy lately, as I'm sure you can tell from my lack of posts. So here's a quick rundown of what's been going on...

First Spring Craft Show
 Along with filling regular orders, I've been restocking things that sold out last fall for my upcoming show on Saturday. After my last show last fall, I just put everything away so I could focus on Christmas orders. I didn't take inventory and didn't realize how low I had gotten on stock! Still hoping to get a few more pieces ready before the show (isn't that always the case!).

First Big Bridal Fair
Back to back craziness this weekend! I have my first big bridal fair on Sunday. There will be 450-600 brides attending with their entourage! I'm both excited and nervous at the same time. My display will be completely different at this show than any of my craft shows. I'm working on last minute pieces for displays and last minute giveaways and flyers. Luckily my mom is here to help me prep and will be here to help me with the show!

Speaking of my parents have been in town for the last week and a half. And when my parents are in town, I try to spend as much time as I can with them. That means I get all my work done, but things like my poor blog fall to the side.
My grandpa has also been in the hospital for a few weeks now. Every time we think he's showing progress, he takes 3 steps back. So that has been weighing on my mind and I've been trying to spend time with him when I can as well.

New Laser!
To end on a good note, I also ordered a new laser! It will be here the week of the 16th and I'll have training the following week. I am beyond excited to have a bigger, more powerful laser! I can't wait to get it up and running. I better start clearing a space for it!!!

I hope things aren't quite so crazy in your neck of the woods! And I hope you're all enjoying some nice weather. I'm so glad this week has been sunny and warm!
Stay tuned for updates on all these upcoming events!


  1. You've certainly got a lot on your plate, Edi! I'm glad your parents are there to support you. That certainly is a big bridal show! Wishing you the best of luck with that and hopefully you'll be able to snap a few shots of your new booth set up! Would love to see :)

  2. Good luck with the spring shows Edi! The bridal show sounds massive. I bet you will get some customers there! I hope your grandfather improves. Family is much more important than blogging. :) Congratulations on the new laser coming. That is exciting!

  3. Yay new laser! I understand not wanting to do as much while people are in town. My husband was home for a few days and I didn't do much with my blog or store as a result because I wasn't going to ignore him for my blog! Best of luck at your upcoming show.

  4. I did notice your absence in blogland! But I knew it was for good reason, because I had a feeling you were doing some craft shows soon.
    It's great to hear that you've been spending quality time with family too. I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa. Spend all the time that you can!

    Congrats on your new laser! And good luck with the training. I can't wait to see some updates about that. I know you've been excited about it for a bit, and now it's coming! That's great to read. =0)

    Hope you're having a great week.

  5. You life sounds a bit like mine felt last month! At least I had weddings and not sicknesses. Praying for your grandpa. good luck with the shows!

  6. Good luck with your upcoming shows -- the bridal fair sounds awesome! I'm sure you will do well! How great that you're getting a new laser!

  7. Praying for your grandpa! The new laser sounds like more fun! Love the glasses!!! and the little tandem bike!

  8. I've been doing the same as you--replenishing stock--and it's time-consuming. I'm sorry about your grandpa's health, glad you get to spend time with your parents, and thrilled on your behalf about your new laser!

  9. A bridal show and a new laser sounds exciting! Moms are so great with the helping part! No one wants to see you succeed as much as a mom.
    I hope your grandpa gets well soon.

  10. You sound crazy busy! Good luck at the shows. So glad your mom is there to help out. Have fun playing with your new laser!

  13. Congrats on ordering the laser. And I would love to see some pictures of the fair. Have fun!

  14. New laser is as important as a new sewing machine would be for us! Congratulations! We are working on replenishing and updating our stock, too; the past months were busy (good!).

    I wish a speedy and durable recovery to your grandpa. And a bit of free time to you, to enjoy yourself.
