So, its been awhile since I got to my “daily” blog. I apologize for that. It’s been a busy week, its been a great week! I was in full side hustle/momprenuer mode. Finishing up a ton of product for the pop-up shop this weekend. I was a bit rushed at the end, but not nearly as much as I was for last month’s pop-up. I had some sanding help from my wife as well, which was extremely helpful of course! So, here’s everything that got wrapped up this week for the weekend:
9 sets of coasters
2 small side tables
6 balanced wine bottle holders
2 wine and appetizer trays
1 wood and resin bowl
Now if you note, the amount sold above has gone up! It was a very successful first day, and I expect tomorrow to bring in at least a couple more sales as well. In addition to being at Beadology this weekend for the pop-up shop, I am also promoting the class I will be teaching there on October 14th on how to make your own balanced wine bottle holder. Looks like I have one person signed up for it after today. There’s only 6 spots total. Nice size for my first class to teach. Looking forward to flexing my training skills in the woodworking arena. I regularly train on topics of quality assurance for my full-time job, which I appreciate because it has definitely helped me hone my ability to adapt to different knowledge/skill levels within a group and make sure that everyone learns something from a class. Now its off to bed for me to get plenty of sleep in preparation for day two of the pop-up shop.
Oh, and stay tuned tomorrow I will be sharing the last maker mom interview via blog tomorrow before more come on the podcast that will be launching on October 19th.
Biggest wins for the day: Excellent sales day at the pop-up shop.
Opportunities for improvement: Finding more local opportunities for pop-up shops.
