Baking

I love to bake. One of my favorite things to bake...cookies.

That's what I'll be doing for the next day or two. Lots of cookie baking.

We're having a weekend women's conference at our church this weekend. There is a speaker coming and other things. But this year they also added booths. We have a new activity center, so this is a great way to use it. They asked women from our church and other places to bring their homemade/handmade items or their other goods/services to share with other women. It's a great chance to network. Fun for people coming to the conference (shopping!) and good for the women selling items to get their names out there.

The lady from our church coordinating this event approached me at a baby shower about making cookies. I had made some for that, and she asked if I've ever sold my cookies. The answer is yes, many times. I've sold cookie trays for Christmas several years. And I've done other special orders.

Then I started thinking about the opportunity for me to sell my crocheted and knitted items. I have so many sitting here. I keep making things thinking I'll give them away for gifts (which I do from time to time) or open an Etsy store and start selling some.

So, I'm making several kinds of cookies and bringing all my crocheted/knitted things. It should be fun, and I'm hoping I can bring home a little spending money.

I'm also hoping to open an Etsy store before then, so I can get my site out there too. Maybe I can pass out some business cards. Thanks for your help in brainstorming a name, I still have some rolling around in my head but none that have stuck yet. If you have any more ideas, I'm open to them. If I chose your idea, I'll send you something pretty.

Well, bake to preparing for the weekend. There are lots of cookies to bake!

Happy St. Patty's Day!
