My First Bazaar...

(Forgive the poor quality of images.  I still have no idea how to work the camera with any finesse.  But I am determined to learn!)

I participated in my first Bazaar last week, it was fun.  A LOT of work.  But worth it.  I left feeling encouraged and well-received (even though I only sold two furry toddler pillows).  It was good to work really hard, prepare really well (I surprisingly felt very organized) and set goals for myself that only I monitored and achieved (no professor to grade my paper or boss to enforce deadlines).

There are two Proverbs that have been meaningful to me lately:

Proverbs 20:21
An inheritance gained hastily at the beginning
Will not be blessed at the end.

Proverbs 14:23
All hard work brings a profit,
but mere talk leads only to poverty.

They remind me to work hard and not be afraid of growing slowly.  

And I have been so grateful for the encouragement from friends and family as I start selling my craft.  It makes me feel like I am moving in the right direction...
