Rhiannon over at Toast & Life inspired me to get out of my blogging rut by thinking about some of the things that are making me smile right now...This past weekend I had my first 'promotional event' as such, a stall at the Gisborne Baby Expo, which definitely fit that criteria!
My main mission was for people to see me & the Kindermusik brand, I wasn't actually selling anything, my stand was all about little kids playing instruments & laughing, and having their Mums & Dads see that there's another option around town for Early Childhood Music :)
It was awesome! I spent all day playing with my puppets (you can see them in the middle picture - a cockatoo, a wombat & a kangaroo - rather aussie themed but very cute!), and talking (croaking? I was voiceless which was VERY uncool) to all of the lovely families who came to visit.
People were so interested in what I had to say, the Kindergarten association want to meet with me about the Kindermusik programme written for a childcare setting (ABC Music & Me), and hopefully I'll have loads of gorgeous kids coming along to demo classes soon...
I loved setting up my stall (with the help of mum - it would have been impossible to set up a stand & wrangle a little bunny at the same time!), and it made me wish I had my own proper studio so I could keep a display up all the time! One day :) Nothing like unleashing the creativity to bring a smile to my face. Even if I was so tired after the expo that I was fast asleep by 7.30 ;)
Big thanks to my lovely friend Becca from Tiny Lovely for letting me borrow her camera to take a picture of my stall! It was very nice indeed having a friend next door - go and visit her blog to find lots of very beautiful treasures for your little ones :)
