Getting Ready for Convention!

Well, it is that time again - NCBA Convention is just around the corner! I am dashing around, trying to get everything ready. My mother comes to stay with the kids, and I am trying to get the house in order, in addition to gathering all my goods. Are you ready for convention? It's going to be amazing, as always! If you have never been, why not take a virtual visit through the NCBA Photos page?

One thing I am doing this year that i have not had to do in the past is to care for my etsy shop.

My MakeABasket etsy shop contained almost 4oo pottery bases for coiled baskets until this afternoon...when i started removing some to take to Teacher's Marketplace with me. (That's me at Teacher's Marketplace last year, at left, and a previous year, below.) It is crazyville! I cannot bring them all! I wish i could, but the table they assign us (only one per teacher) is about 2 feet by 6 feet, and the pottery pieces have to lay flat to allow them to be seen. So i can only bring SOME. I have removed what i am bringing from my shop, so if you visit MakeABasket.etsy.com and see something you want to see in person at convention, please email me to tell me what it is so i can bring it. Everything i am bringing has already been taken out of the shop. If it does not sell, it will return after convention (March 11-14.)

I also have some brand new bases and designs that will debut at convention, so even if you have seen everything in my shop, don't forget to stop by and look around!

Thanks again for your support, i really appreciate it!
