beauty and disappointments

Saturday, October 20, 2012

The weather today was absolutely perfect! And that dusty haze that covered the area yesterday was gone this morning so the sky was as clear blue as it could be. So after lunch my girl and I went for a walk. We went up to the local store where I have crafts to see if any of my Halloween necklaces sold at her haunted house event the other night. She didn't even put them up! I am so disappointed! I've just been sulking all afternoon. She said there really weren't any kids there (well, yeah, it started at 8pm on a school night) and that they'd probably sell better at a different venue like a craft fair or flea market. I left the 6 or 7 on satin ribbons with her and brought the others home. They might go out in Halloween bags with the candy. Such a disappointment! emoticon I would really love for something, anything, to sell. Just for the validation that I'm doing the right thing here! emoticon

On the plus side, I did get to go for a walk with my beautiful daughter. She didn't want to stay at the playground very long because it was super crowded. And I think I get to report a weight loss in the morning! emoticon

    It's wonderful you got out on a nice walk with your daughter. Sure, it's disappointing nothing sold, but it was a lesson learned, right? Knowing your audience is important. In the future ask what to expect or what the owner thinks will draw attention and play more to that. Or, maybe you could have a project that is part way completed and sell it as an easy DIY kit. Ask yourself, if you realized there wouldn't be kids there and had a better idea what the customers were looking for, what would you have made instead?

    I am so sorry your friend didn't even try to sell your necklaces - that must have left you feeling really hurt. Hang in there it takes everyone time to get a business started and it is not easy - kinda like losing weight - it takes effort, patience and MORE PATIENCE and MORE EFFORT too.

    You will succeed if you keep on keeping on.
