I was so excited that I felt like doing cartwheels.
I’ve got a stall at the Day of the Goddess. A women’s only event to raise awareness for the people in Congo. http://www.dayofthegoddess.co.uk/congo.html
Oh and did I mention that ticket prices include vegan food (or what ever type tickles your fancy).
You see, last year I wanted to attend the event and I didn’t get the opportunity to and this time at the end of December I received an email that there was stalls on sale and the date was to be 25th March 2012.
I thought to myself I am not waiting until march I am gonna book right my stall right away. But unfortunately I didn’t have the money in my account at the time. Oh well, not to worry, I will pay when the banks open back up.
Tuesday 3rd of January I took my son Heru to school for the first day back after the holidays then went straight to the bank. I checked my account and thought “yes” I am gonna book right now.
I got home, put on my PC, went to the website and before I could go any further my friend phoned saying that she had just tried to book for herself and the stalls are all gone!
Are you kidding me? But the event is in March??? What is wrong with these people? I was planning this for ages. I even knew what designs I was planning on creating to bring. I even thought of ordering a banner. (So much to think of when you create a new business).
Well I wasn’t having any of it.
In disbelief I checked the website for a contact number and gave it a call right away. On the other end on the line was a very friendly lady by the name of Sheryl who confirmed they were all sold out of stall space.
I asked her to put me on a reserve list in case anyone cancelled.
Well, she told me that no one ever cancelled. But I insisted that it is just in case. She then said that there may be a stall left but she was planning on using it herself, and she will let me know if I left my details.
So I sent a text as well as an email with my info and my website.
To my surprise, 8 days later I received an email from her saying that she has just opened up another stall space on the website and if I’m still interested I should follow the link right away.
Of course I am interested. And of course I followed the link.
Within 3 minutes of receiving the email, I had booked a stall and paid up via Paypal.
I really wasn’t messing about. The moral of this post? See whatever you want and keep your eye on it even when things seem bleak. And when you see that small crack of opportunity… waste no time. Grab it!
Hi there and welcome to my first blog.
Here I speak about my creations and generally what I am up to.
I have a website www.hazinacreations.co.uk where I have for sale many of my jewellery creations.
I work mainly with beading, resin and wire.
I also have other crafts such as tie dye, candle making and oil painting. I love singing, acting, and music. You get the drift. I just enjoy to be creative.
I am inspired by colours, Africa, and of course by all the art and creativity around me.
So enjoy my blog. Go ahead and click the + to follow. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
