The fair I did this weekend was a little bit different, I didn't have a target group, where people who have problems with gluten are a little more familiar and a little more opened minded to alternative health and healing. I didn't know what to expect here. Where I live in a fairly small town, I had expected to see people I had already talked to or expected to hear that they had already heard about it. I was pleasantly surprised. I did talk to quite a few who had heard and wanted to join the Facebook page. I was able to answer questions for them and direct them a bit with product they had. Some people were just flat out not interested, and the best part was how many people I did get to talk to that had never heard of it, and we're willing to look at another way of taking care of their health. It was so exciting.
Since this WAS a craft show, I thought I had better make something by hand. I love crafting. I used organic body cream and added the essential oils to it, and made a luxurious aromatherapy cream. Happy, Holiday, Balanced and Cool. I also made some organic glycerin soaps from Christmas molds. I had a christmas tree, bells, a wreath and a present. They were scented with Peppermint oil, a Holiday blend, and White Fir (I called it Christmas Tree). I also had a trio sample of Peppermint, Lemon and Lavender for sale. These were hot items. I also put together some small samples of "Icy Hot" Rub. Also another hot commodity.
I have already been in contact with some of the people I have talked to and emailed them requested info. It was such a joy to share this info with people. BUT the whole day and half as worn me out. It's a lot of working standing for 7 hours and sharing what you love!
Remember don't let fear hold you back, you will never move forward if you are afraid of failure or change. Take the risk, if you fail, it's ok, you just get up and try again. Just don't forget to get up and learn from your mistakes or find a mentor or people who will encourage you. Do what you love. I was challenged, and I am rising to the occasion, my emotional and physical health are better for it...and to top it all off my finances are better too. In the words of Dani Johnson, "Prosper where you are planted!"
And just when I thought I was going to have time to do some laundry and put a few things away in the half finished kitchen, I was reminded that Thanksgiving is on Thursday, and I have to prepare special food to take to my sister-in-law's house! Oh my, no rest for the one who wants to do everything just right! = )
