So sorry for the lengthy absence but I have a really plausible excuse. I almost worked to death, not joking at all. Forget just doing shows, oh no, we decided to add more.
Some of you know we were involved for six weeks in getting the new the find market event open in Plainfield IL and it was amazing to see all the great goods that the many vendors brought in. Everything all of us DIYers dream about, raw materials to create with. There were bins of ceiling tiles, fabrics, doors, fragments and so much more for sale and lest I should forget, 132 chairs. It seemed all of us brought chairs, a lot of chairs! But wait there's more! Beautiful vignettes, great stuff and wonderful ideas, you need to see this market.
Their next market is November 21 - 24, so if you are anywhere in the area, make plans on stopping in and checking it out. I have it on very good authority that they are planning on presenting 5 different Christmas themes, vintage red and green, industrial, rustic/primitive, black/white glitz and shabby chic. Can not wait to see this.
We are also personally in the downside of moving into a new home. Talk about lousy timing, we got it in spades. But we are making do the best we can.
The good news . . .
I got a creative space in the deal!
For many of you who know me, know that for the last five years I have been creating everything handmade for All My Musings in a space no bigger than 2' x 5' shared with a lot of other functions, on a mat no larger than 18" x 24" if I was lucky and really neat about it, yea right!
This is a partial view of my incredible 10' x 13' room with a huge window and no, I have not completely unpacked
and today when I was in there, I just needed to sit and create and these guys are going to Indianapolis this weekend with us
new tags and bows, just little things that made me smile. It felt good to just work with new found tools and embellishments from moving everything. Kinda feels like creative alzheimer's, I had completely forgotten about some of these embellishments and was excited to use them. A good side to moving I guess.
So off to Indy on Friday, back to the beautiful Fountains building and then to Chicago next weekend for Lycee Francais 9th Annual French Market and then a couple of weeks later we are back at the find market event.
I had better get the rest of that mess organized toot sweet. Just too many priorities right now . . .
