Well one week tomorrow is my first show....am I ready, no not yet? will I be? I hope so... am I nervous, a little. Do I have enough stock? well that I can't answer.
Questions I keep asking myself and hoping to find answers to but in the wake of it all, I do enjoy creating and sometimes I just can't stop. My kitchen table studio is plastered right now with paper supplies, painted things that are finished but need something added to them or something sewn on like the tops of my canvas stockings. The list seems to be growing and somehow I feel like nothing is getting accomplished. A little anxiety setting in but I guess it's a wait and see kind of deal.
This year I had to do something a little different than what I had been doing, just painting away then dropping items off to an Open House and then at the end pick up what didn't sell. I did HomeSpun Hill for years but Evelyn decided to drop the vendors and just keep things in her store so I had to find other avenues.
So back to the routine of sitting inside buildings and actually meeting and talking to people as they scan the booths etc. I don't do Ebay or Etsy I just do shows to give me a bit of money over Christmas and that is all I do. To do what I do takes many long hours and I would hate for it to become a job, I wouldn' t enjoy it as much either.
I can't believe how the weeks are flying by, here it was Monday and I was thinking of all the things I wanted to get done and here it is Friday already, Monday is just a blur now.
I did get some more things painted and I will quit my ramblings now so you can take a peek. My next post I will be showing you my tea light cards that you can give as a hostess gift or something to someone as a special thank you or for someone that is hard to get something for. I have to finish those so here goes my painted items.
Stay tuned and I will be showing some paper goodies in my next post.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
