The show was fun, met new people, made some friends and networked which is very important as a crafter! Funny how you can run into people from 20 years ago and they still have that same face only some gray hair to go on top of their head now. Anyway, my heart was happy with the sale of 5 jean items and a number of odds and ends. I believe I sold a total of 12 items including a purse and 2 hats. I was pleased to say the least. My heart was happy because people out there are rockin my son's style and that means more to me than any dollar amount from the sale of the jeans. One girl said to me "these shorts are only $20.00?" I said "its more about the memory of my son and getting his style out there" I think I am skipping April shows to be prepared for shows for 3 weeks in a row in May and one in June. I will post information as I get it. The first show is in Galway on May 7th at the Fire Department. My daughter Adriana, 21 years old made a brochure which I am attaching here. She did a great job!!! More soon as I am extremely busy...must get back to that tuxedo coat..due on Thursday...yikes..I feel like an attorney..wait until the last minute and then work under pressure!! It's all good. Thanks for visiting my blog...BECOME A FOLLOWER!!! Peace, Love and Rock n Roll

Hey All, This is a test to see if I have figured out how to change my font. Should be so simple right? Maybe for your average Joe but my name is Laurie so there goes that..lol. In any event I want you to all know that I do have items for sale on Etsy.com but you can also request an item here that you don't see on etsy and I will post it there. In addition, you can custom order and I will send you a photo of the layout prior to designing..this way your jeans will have your preapproval!! Well off to run errands. Took a few days off to give my fingers a rest...REMEMBER ALL MY ITEMS ARE 100% HAND SEWN. LOVE TO ALL. THANKS FOR FOLLOWING!! MORE SOON. I will be starting the tuxedo tonight!

So this being my first craft fair it was fun but also a learning experience. I see that networking is going to be a very important part of my business especially since my items are unique and really an exclusive clientele will be my customers. I have taken a break from sewing as I thought for sure my hands would fall off last week in preparation of the show. I have a list of more shows all over New York and as I get tidbits of information on them I will post them here and on my facebook. On facebook I have two pages..one that you can friend (drddesigns) and the other is an artist page.. D R D Designs aka Dillon R. Dziedzic Designs. Doing all of this helps me feel connected to my son. I am really struggling to live a life without him physically in it. I know that he is with me, guiding me and giving me strength to try and get through each day. My life has completely changed and not for the better in any way. SEW SEW SEW I have to get back to my craft tomorrow. I have a tuxedo to design as part of a contest and to raise money for a charity of my choice. More pictures will post tomorrow and I will do progression photos of the tux too. Enjoy and thanks for following....
