Taking a break...

This will be my last post until the New Year.  It has been a busy few months and I need to relax and reload.  I'm sure that over the Christmas holidays I will find new inspiration for my jewellery line.  Hopefully in the New Year I will have some interest in my "kid's parties" idea.  Remember to keep me in mind!

Happy Holidays everyone, relax and enjoy...

Weekend update

Another busy weekend for Swag Barn. 

On Saturday, I hosted an Open House for family and friends and was so happy that everyone got had a nice time.  Thanks to all who came for some holiday cheer and to those that purchased a piece from Swag Barn.  I hope you enjoy.

Sunday at the Tansley Woods Holiday Shopping Spectacular was less than successful.  With the show being at a community centre I was hoping that sales would be stellar but I was wrong!  Oh well, you win some, you lose some.  I was particularly disappointed that out of approximately 25 vendors at least 6 of them sold jewellery, bad planning on the organizer's part.  Needless to say I won't be participating next year at that show but at least $35 of the (hefty) vendor fee went towards the charity "Sleeping Children Around the World".

A nice woman that stopped by my booth recommended that I make myself available for birthday parties for young girls.  Great idea!  She mentioned that her 10-year-old daughter recently had 10 friends over and they hired a jewellery designer to come and help them to make bracelets that they could take home.  I would really be into doing that!  So, for all you moms that have daughters, keep me in mind if you are looking for something to do at your next birthday party!

Until next time,
