We did something new this winter. Typically, we collapse in January and recover from the whirlwind of Christmas craft fairs that run from late October to mid-December. But this year we gave ourselves a short break and then made lotion for a new kind of show for us—a trade show! In late February, we set up our booth for four days at the Rocky Mountain Gift Show in Denver. I was so nervous. We didn’t know what to expect.
We did great! We came home with orders from about 7 stores all around Colorado, and after we got home, more orders came in over the next several weeks. We have spent most of this spring making lotion to fill those orders!

So, all that has kept us pretty busy after work and weekends this spring! I thought I’d come up for some air and post about all the goings on.
