Now there are those that would say that for £5.00 I got my moneys worth. But the true cost of CRAFTfest was so much more. There was the ample time spent on blogposts, twitter, treasury creations on Etsy, email. There was a lot of white noise. And, for me, it was all pretty exhausting without the added bonus of any financial or great creative return.
I am not one for the glass being half empty or other such negative phrases. The positive note for the week, along with the lovely people I met, was the development of my No Rules Creative Runway - all will be revealed on Wednesday.
One of the things I love about the Craft'sphere is that everyone spreads the love highlighting everyone else's work - you just know there's a but coming - but I'm not going to be able to give up the day job on that love alone. So I've been given the kick to get my store in order - I am envisaging great things.
As a sales tool, for me, Craftfest was not a success. As a learning experience it gave a lot of food for thought.
