I have some very exciting news to share with everyone...
Several months ago I was invited to be a vendor at an event here in New Mexico called "Girl's Night Out". It is a shopping and spa event for women 21+. This event is held by the Ronald McDonald House Charities here in New Mexico. Part of the proceeds benefit the charity. You can read more about the event on their website.
When I was invited it wasn't a concrete thing that they would allow me to participate. I had to submit an application. I have been anxiously waiting to hear back from them since December. And just last week I got the news that I had been accepted!
I'm so excited to be a part of a great cause and also get out there and sell some of my designs to women in the area. This will be my first local event selling face to face. So I have been working very hard to get ready. I'm anticipating needing 200+ items by April 30th. Plus displays, signage, coupons, packaging, etc etc.
I am still in college full time, so this is going to zap all of my time for now. I'm not sure how often I am going to list on Etsy or update the FFD website, but custom orders are still open. And I have big plans for big changes coming to the FFD website soon, but more details about that later.
The event is on April 30th at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Albuquerque, so I am going to be updating you all on my progress and of course post pictures and news about the event afterwords.
