It's That Time of Year Again

My Pop Shoppe PEEPS
Like all of you Artisans out there know,
 this time of year begins to take on a pace of its own. 
It's like a high speed chase with several directions, 
stops and starts and at the finish line a "Fata Morgana".
 Does it ever end. 
 I don't think so, not for the crafter, because their mind is going 24/7,
 idea upon idea. 
Relentless and never ending.
 But can we think of a life without it, 
not in my mind and I'm sure not in any of you other hard core artsies.
 I've tried to think about why my mind works like this, but there are no answers except that it is 
apart of me, 
who I am,
 in my blood as they say,
 my genetic make-up, 
what ever,
 here I am. 
Accept and move on and love it cause we can.

So what's on my chopping block this fall? 

 Here's a few items I'm getting ready to ship out to various retailers.
A bunch of crocheted bracelets
Hot pad and coaster set Retro colours
More "Peeps"
Lucy Coin/change purses

Christmas Cards made from my original canvas

To name a few are the local
"Art Gallery",
 a lovely little shop in town called the
 "Art we Are", 
a few items for my etsy store and then holding back some items for
 my craft fair in November.

 After that I plan on taking a break, 
 relax my 24/7 mind of ideas
 and spend some much needed time
 with my dear and precious family
 (because my life doesn't function very well with out them).

Christmas Is In The Air

Well, for me the Christmas Spirit is officially in the air...... 
My first Craft Show complete
 Coffee is being served in the RED Cups at Starbucks.

Yes!  I do love this time of year.

My Craft show was successful and I am a little lighter in the inventory department.
Sad to see my creations leave, but happy to know they will be loved by others :)

I love doing the Craft Shows. 
There are so many nice people there. 
Both Sellers and Buyers.
Everyone is always so kind and supportive. 

It's good to be back and be a part of this world.

Almost a year since I've last posted. Youch!

Time to restore, regroup and move forward again with my creative life that has been waiting very patiently at the gateway.

A little at a time to start and hopefully the momentum will take effect on its own.

Here is a sneak peak of a few of the treasures I have been creating for the Up coming Craft Fair I will be in this year. November 4, 2012.
