As you may have seen through the rest of my social media, my world has been taken over by ICE- the Indie Craft Experience! I am so excited to again be part of their Pop-Up Shop, and for the first time ever to be part of the Summer ICE Craft Market event!!! But seriously, I now have no free time... yipes.
My 'lil brain has been flooded with plans for inventory, swag, display, and set up details.
An outline of my thoughts:
Inventory~ need roughly double my current stock. Oh. my. goodness!! (so excited!!)
Swag~ 250 bags to the first ICE atendees each day = 500 (500 needed pieces of swag from me!!), oh wait- plus the 150 for the Pop-Up Shop swag = yikes. Especially considering that up 'till this point, I have always handmade my business cards. I like having that personal touch. However, I had to decide between making business cards and making inventory- inventory wins! I found a gal who has designed and is printing adorably cute business cards for me. I like them so much it made me feel better about not making all of them myself.
Display~ will be AMAzing! Keeping the details secret for now.
Yesterday was the first day in quite a while that I had nothing on the calendar. Knowing I wasn't going to need to leave the house, other than to walk the dog, I got up early, wore no makeup, barely got dressed, and simply tacked back my short hair morning bedhead with a big stretchy band. Beauty.
As I started the day, I took a few snapshots around my workspace. You'll be able to find these items at the ICE Summer Craft Market, June 28 & 29!
