Tomorrow afternoon I leave for Blissdom. I can't believe it's already here. It sort of snuck up on me. For weeks it seemed so far away, and now here I am running around like a crazy lady trying to get everything done before I leave. I'm a vendor in the handmade market (which I'm very excited about it), and in classic Alison fashion, I put things off too long and have been sewing like mad this week to make sure I'm ready. The last few days have been all about purchasing last minute supplies, cutting, sewing, ironing, laundry, packing... the list goes on.
Since I will be selling in a handmade market in a couple of days, it seemed fitting that this weeks "5 Things" post be geared towards handmade business. Today's post was written by my sweet friend Amy Cornwell. Amy and I met last year at the Creative Estates conference, and she has since become a dear friend. I admire her as a woman, and as a business owner. This year she was able to leave her (outside of the home) job and pursue her handmade business full time. I asked Amy to share with us five things she wishes she had known when she first opened shop.
