I have exactly 5 weeks until the Baby Show where I will be selling my diaper cakes and other baby gifts. It’s a big one so it’s causing me a lot of anxiety. I really want to quit… Just let the producer know I won’t be coming and just swallow the cost. I know better though, I’m going to do this and I’ll do fine. If nothing else it will be a learning experience. Lol. It’s held at a large expo facility in my town, it’s a two day thing, I’ve never done anything like this before! I’m super intimidated and I’m very concerned that a) I might not have enough stuff (but simultaneously…) b) I won’t sell anything. Ugh what am I going to do with myself!?
I ordered 50 more washcloths off aliexpress and a bunch more receiving blankets, baby hats, mits, socks, and ribbon from amazon. I keep going back to costco for more diapers because I keep underestimating how much I actually need. I managed to find a lot of my other supplies locally for good prices so that helps out a lot. Essentially I need to fill a 6 foot table for 2 days and also make 2 large gifts for prizing. Ack!
After this show is done I have 2 Christmas craft fairs in November which very “conveniently” seem to be on the same day, and I’m obligated to do both. Luckily my dad’s amazing girlfriend offered to man one of the tables for me. I’ll have to get her something nice… I’m planning to make some new Christmas themed items to launch at these craft fairs: Mini diaper cakes with red and green decorations and reindeer rubber ducky toppers. Gender neutral and a good Xmas gift for an expecting mom or a new baby who it’s nice to buy a gift for but really doesn’t need much. You can never have too many bibs, diapers, washcloths, or receiving blankets!
