|Me and my stuff|
The craft fair was a success. I had a wonderful time and the atmosphere was a sweet familiar encounter.
Everything went smoothly...lots of room for set up...wonderful fellow crafters surrounding me....and best of all , my lovely daughter Ali by my side. Things would not have gone as smoothly without her. Her grace and calmness set the tone right from the start.
Arriving at 8:00 a.m. with our Starbucks coffee we found our table..we promptly put on table cloths and assembled displays and structures.
I hung my first decoration with shaky hands and suddenly that familiar feeling of "flight or fight" came upon me. I whispered to Alicia "I don't think I'm going to be able to be ready". She just looked at me calmly and said "It's OK Mom, you hang your decorations and I'll do the rest. We have lots of time."
And that's all it took. Her confidence was enough for the both of us. When it was all set up, it was great. Better than I had imagined.
The whole day was perfect. People were so complimentary and appreciative.
Yes, I must say it was an incredible day and I loved every minute of it.
