What a Bust

There were far more vendors than buyers at last Friday's boutique, so I am still the proud owner of quite a mound of tutus. I've started sending them out into the void that is etsy. I mean, I know that etsy is great for a lot of people, but for girls like me, not so much. I'm just not a marketing kind of person. I'd just like to sit in my house and make things all day. Isn't it enough that I deal with two chatty little girls all day. Shouldn't karma give me credit for that and allow the world to just come to me?

27 Tutus

I decided to make a heap of tutus for a boutique on Friday. I figured it was easier than sewing. So, I did my usual thing of buying way more supplies than I needed and this is the result. I compressed and flattened them as much as possible, but now what? Do I leave them lying on the floor all week? I've never sold tutus before, so I don't even know if there is a market for them among preschool moms. I fear one of my daughters may end up having a ballerina themed birthday party this spring. Oh, and any of my friends with daughters will be seeing them in gift baskets.
