And I've come to the conclusion that it's ok. Last year was absolutely crazy busy and super stressful (you can read about it here). This year I think I need time to slow down and settle. We still have renovations to complete, Hubby's work roster has changed, I've started working part-time three days a week and just last week, Jenna was diagnosed with glandular fever after being sick for weeks and a hospital visit.
So instead of monthly Facebook market nights and lots of market stalls I've decided to keep it simple this year. I'm just going to do Facebook market nights when I have something new to show you, and "real-life" markets will be few and far between as my Husband now works one day each weekend.
I had plans to do a Pozible campaign to raise funds for building my studio. However I don't feel right getting people to pledge for rewards that they might not receive for six months, so I'll be using sales from my markets to that instead. As a result, I'll have some different "opportunities" up for sale at my market nights, such as VIP shopping nights at your house or in my studio, and Painty afternoons for you and 3 friends. I can't wait to have all my stash in the same house as me and be able to do a LOT more creating.
So here is what I DO have planned for this year so far:
For Toowoomba locals, you will be able to check out (and purchase) some of my larger original paintings at the Glennie School Fair this Sunday, the 28th April. It is sure to be great day out with the Art Show, lots of stalls as well as kids entertainment.
I will also be having a Facebook market night on my page this Wednesday night starting at 8pm. I have some new magnet designs as well as new necklaces and bracelets. Perfect timing to grab Mum something for Mother's Day (or for yourself).
You will also be able to find me at an "Australia's Biggest Morning Tea" on the 26th May. More details coming soon.
And I shall leave you with a few sneak peaks of some of the new products which will be available this Wednesday night, the 24th of May. Make sure to head over to my Facebook page and check it all out as well as make some purchases.
So what kind of "opportunity" would you like to see up for sale at one of my Market nights? Leave your suggestions in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by. :)
