A leap. Baby steps. A hop into the great unknown. I break open, peel back the layers like an orange. I am hope-filled.
Migrating geese, my beloved dog sleeping in the warm autumn sun, a paint chip that takes me to Morocco. The inspiration comes in tiny, lapping waves, and I am here, in its midst, for the moment.
I took a leap recently. Rented some space at a local store with other craft, antique, art vendors. A BIG step in my little world. A much better choice than an on-line store for me.
It started with my husband helping me build my booth IN OUR LIVING ROOM.
And then taking it to the space upstairs at The Nat:
I was inspired to make new things to mix in with the other things I already had made:
And after I got it all set up, I hung out at the Third Thursday open house that the store hosts each month:
I had a lot of people (lots of friends!) stop by and stay for some wine and a chat. It was a GREAT way to meet other vendors and people in our community that want to support local artists. I don’t have any photos of that though, because I was too busy hanging out!
I will be decorating for Christmas in the near future, so I will have to post some photos when that is all done.
