I had a craft show this past Saturday. Well, it was a community day festival. I don't know how to take it. I did okay. There were not many vendors there. Mostly it was advertised as a free event to take the kids to eat, play bouncy games, and listen to local bands. It was like nobody was there to spend money. Although it was nice to sit under a shady tree. I heard it was very hot out...I had goosebumps. So, I guess my spot was a good place to be. I learn a little at each show. Where do I get that magic wand that I can wave, and POOF!...I sell like crazy and it's all so easy? This is such a learning process, and I know that. My next show is a month from now. This one is going to be super huge. Actually, I'm a bit nervous about it. I'm sure it'll work out...

I've been so busy since the kids let out of school, I haven't spent much time on my blog. We have been enjoying the nice weather, taking a lot of day trips. With all the flowers in bloom, I have been inspired. I've also been playing around with different color combinations. I have a craft show tomorrow that is taking all of my time today in preparations.
New in my shop are Home Decor Tiles. They have messages of inspiration and each one has it's own inspirational story behind it.
The picture above is one of my favorites. The ocean is a whole other world to me. It inspires me that there is always more to explore and greater things to do. That is why I chose the world "inspire", because thinking of the ocean inspires me.

Ugh...I hit a creative block this week. So....I grabbed my Vincent Van Gogh coffee table book to inspire me. Did it? Of course it did, it's Vincent Van Gogh! I decided to do a small wall hanging, I will post a pic when I'm done. I just need to do something that had no plan, and let my creativity take control. I find that's when the best pieces are done. I don't think Van Gogh ever crammed for a craft show!
