I helped to run “Holiday Boutique 2015” as one of the organizers this year. We did that to raise awareness of what CASA, Child Advocates of Silicon Valley, was doing and also for fund-raising. I’ve heard that there are more than 1,600 foster children in Santa Clara county only and they definitely need more volunteers to help those children.
We started planning the event from June and had several meetings for 5 months. It was a lot more work than I’ve expected but now when it’s finished, I’m so relieved and I feel so happy that I’ve done this. I’m happy that I have spent quite a bit of my time for a good cause!!
Also, I’ve found out that there are so many kind and generous people out there!! Some people have helped to advertise our events, some people spent extra money on donation and so on.
With nearly 15 other local artists, I’ve also displayed many types of jewelry there. It was so interesting to see what types of things were popular.
Now, I have to rearrange my Etsy shop according to my survey!! I need to add things that were popular on the event day!
What really interesting to me was to connect with other local artists!! It’s always nice to be connected to nice people 😀
I haven’t hold any workshops for several months now, but one big event is over. So, I’m happy to do something for my craft passionate friends 🙂
I’m now very motivated for our next year’s event. I hope we will make this boutique more exciting places!!
If any of you are interested to run the event with us as a volunteer, please contact me 🙂
