Remember to Breathe

I have to admit, right now, I am completely


I'm preparing my house for an Open House this weekend, while simutaneously trying to get ready for back-to-back weekends of Craft Shows (my firsts as an "artist").

I have to keep reminding myself that all of this equals blessings...

Open House = possibility to sell house.
Craft Shows = possibility to sell art!

This is not however, my first ever craft show. I did one about 8 years ago when I was making handmade cards. But this time, I feel a little more exposed. It's my art!!! Almost like my babies - and I'm putting them up for sale! What was I thinking? *smile*

Breathe in - breathe out. It will all be fine. This is all part of it, right? And I'm taking it all in. Getting some experience under my belt; learning and growing. And I'm meeting some amazing people in the process, which I hope to talk about more when things calm down!

Well, I better go. I have a lot to do!

Peace, Love, and Chocolate


  1. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So proud of you by BRAVE GIRL friend!! Show us your booth and tell us how it goes...any pointers for me would be great...seriously!!! My first show is in October!!


  2. I'm right there with leslie . . . YOU CAN DO IT!!! I, too, am so very proud of you! What an absolutely exciting time for you . . . selling your art!!!!! That means this time next week, your art will be in someone else's home . . . sending inspiration and hope to a new friend. That is so thrilling to me, I am grinning from ear to ear! CONGRATULATIONS - and good luck! (I love how you displayed the cards in vintage bags in the photo above. SOOOO cool!) :)

  3. Thanks ladies! I need the encouragement!!! I have to admit though, that's not a pic from my booth - but an inspiration. I do plan to "borrow" the idea; I just bought a couple of vintage suit cases! :-)

  4. Well, heck . . . inspiration WORKS, dear! (By the way, I just had to tell you . . . I TRIPLE LOVE how you sign your posts "peace, love and chocolate!" I knew we would be life long friends after reading that!) ;)

  5. I am so glad you posted the photo credit for this photo, so I could check out the blog post with all the display ideas! I am doing my first craft show very soon, and need to figure out some ideas for my table. Thanks for this!!
