I have had a horrible cold this past week. My nose was stuffed. Throat sore and eyes blood shot red. I was in bed most of the week. Thankfully, I was recovered by mothers day and I was able to enjoy my day out with the boys. Mother's day was really nice. I got this wonderful laptop that I am writing to you all on now. My husband is just the greatest. It is much better then the family computer. I don't have to fight the boys for a seat in front of it. And I can now write in bed. How sweet is that!
Well, onto a sour note. The booth I have in this store I am selling my wares is not doing well at all. I have been there for about two months now and only made 30 dollars income. Yup, just 30. I thought at least I would make 100. I knew that my first year was going to be a rough start but this is ridiculous. I think I may need to start to spread my wings else where. Not sure where. But this one is not cutting it for me. Sometimes I think maybe it's my stuff. Maybe, no one likes it. Maybe it's crap. Or maybe I am pricing it to high. But my husband and I did the math on how much time and effort I put into my item. And for the price of my time and effort I think they are reasonable. It's the stupid people who buy cheap products from China and sell them for much more. I have this one woman who has a booth also in the same store. She buys her stuff from China and sells it for a ridiculous amount. And she is profiting quite well. No one seems to want to buy hand-made American products. Blows my mind. But what can you do? Anyways, I will post you guys a tutorial tomorrow on how to make a shoo-fly cover. I wanted to make one for sometime and I could not find what I was looking for on the internet. So, I was inspired to try one on my own and I will share with you what I did. So, check in tomorrow!
