I invited friends and work colleagues - and I'm pleased to say it was a success. Mind you, I don't think I could have done it if my lovely Mum hadn't helped me and I was really nervous beforehand. The fact that it went well then spurred me on to book a stall at a Christmas Street Fair near to where I live in the University area of the City. That was today ... and it was awesome! I pretty well sold out - it was so busy I didn't even have chance to look at any of the other stalls. Luckily the snow has gone and the sun was shining - couldn't have been better. I think I might have hit upon a way of satisfying my creative urges in a way that fits in well with my day job (which is very important to me - it pays the bills and besides, I like it and I like the people I work with so it will always take precedence). This way I can pick and choose when and where I set up shop so that I have time to build up stock in my spare time without feeling pressured. Could be a win-win situation!
I sold lots of these clown tree decorations - good job as I got a bit carried away and made a gazillion of them.
