View #1 of my booth at the UICA’s Holiday Artist’s Market this year. This was my first time participating solo in this event, I’ve always shared booth space before. I was at first a little intimidated by the prospect of filling all that space alone but I wanted to be brave and step it up, and it turned out to be SUCH a positive experience. I feel so encouraged and motivated, and it was a blast having my own little 8x8’ shop all to myself and packed to the gills with work, made me wish it was a permanent space. Feeling like this gave me enough steam to push forward with etsy and local business sales, looking very much forward to what the new year will bring.
