So many of you came by my vendor table at The Creative Connection last weekend. Thank you! Selling one of my pieces is always a little bittersweet...sad to see it leave me but thrilled one of you give it a new home. For those who weren't able to attend, I'll be listing many items in my etsy shop over the next day or two (or three).
And so I am back home (phew!) and ready to sit down and take a long hard look at all the opportunities that are before me. Just feel like it's time to do some deep-thinking and see what's on my path ahead. Actually, I've been feeling this way for a long time...only this is (I think) the first opportunity I've had to really give it some dedicated attention.
But first is a complete studio re-do. It's definitely time for that. So many years of stashing and gathering and stuffing.
Oh and back to the Creative Connection...it was just that, a perfect place to connect with other creative souls. Such fun. For those of you who like to holiday shop early, I thought I'd share some of the lovely discoveries I made at the event...
I Sew Lucky...adorable, lovable stuffed owls and such. I bought one and I don't even have young children anymore. Yep they're that cute.
Shiznits...the most lovable monsters ever, and high-quality too. Rare and adorable.
J. Jewels Designs...beautiful, classic, custom-made sterling imprinted jewelry by the most delightful designer. I got to wear my new ring for several hours before my daughter spotted it and well you know what happened next.
Vintage by Crystal...handmade German spun-cotton treasures. I purchased a beautiful tree ornament from her.
Century Farmhouse...Handcrafted artisan herbal soaps. After watching her soap-making demo, and being a hard-core handmade soap user myself...I was in love. She even captures rainwater to use in some of her soaps!
Until we meet again!
