Well its been 2 weeks and I'm Doing a New Post Not bad But seriously need to get better.... Ya add it to my To do List : ). Well The Fall season is Starting here in Arizona which means I'm back to selling at some Markets and Art Fairs YAY!!!! I really love doing them , I get to be out in the world and meet new people and chat with Friends and hopefully make some money at it. These past few months sales on my Online shops have been SO slow. I'm wondering why I even bother, I am so lacking the Time and Man power to make it in the world of Handcrafted Online shops. Most my sales come from events I do and from people I personally know. I need to punch through this wall that is keeping me in the same spot I was last year when I first started. I thought I would have been in a better way in sales by now. Needless to say its rough sometimes when you go months and No sale its a Blow to ones ego and it has made me think. What am I doing? Actually applied to Petsmart for a part time job next is Walmart.
Since my youngest started Kindergarten I'm home struggling with the the fact that my home business is just not cutting it and maybe just need to Hang it Up. I'm at the point that I have no clue what to do? I don't have the $ to pay for advertisement on blogs and businesses that promote handmade, I don't have the $ to get my website onto search engines or even the knowledge to do it myself
I am even losing the drive to Push on, to keep going, to just strive thru it. Oh GOSH I'm so off why I was making a Post... Lets start again shall we?
OK, First Saturdays of the Months I will be In Glendale,AZ for the Artwerks Lateral 58 My favorite event to do. It has some really cool artists there and it has Grown so Big in its first Year I'm Looking forward to this new season.
Next thing I have in Concrete is Arizona State fair Opening Weekend
Then In Nov I will actually miss the first Saturday in Glendale because my Husbands Karate School will doing a Demonstration for the Desert Shrimp Festival in Gila Bend,AZ Nov 5th.
So I am on the look out for events to do and If your local and reading this Please send me the Hook up to events I would greatly appreciate it. That is another time consuming Money eating thing. You have to do when your an Artist/craftsman on the vending markets. And trying to explain that to the Hubby is well a recurring subject I'm also getting tired of doing.
