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.
