Tips From Texas - Make what you Love.....

Today I thought I would share with you something I learned this past weekend.

I had my first Craft Show at Antique Alley, this is a community wide event that runs for miles from one town to the next with Vendors of all kinds setting up to sell their items.  This is a high traffic event as you can see from the photos.

Cars are backed up farther than you can see! 
My thought was how to know what to make to get all these people to stop by my booth and buy from me? 
Let me just tell you if you fixate on that you will drive yourself crazy!  One day everyone wanted the Purses, while the next day everyone wanted the Pot Holder Handles.  

On my way home on the second day I decided the best thing I can do is make things that I love and that I would use, because if I love them that is going to shine through as I tell people about my items as they stop by my booth. 

My tip from Texas is MAKE WHAT YOU LOVE! Be sure to make it with Love also.  To see all the things I Love feel free to visit my Shop
