Getting Back in the Swing of Things

It's that time of year again - when the markets open up, and I realize I need to have sent in 5 art show applications last month (and didn't!), and I remember the one tent that I can put walls on still has 5 broken pieces from my lack of patience with it at the last market in December (but really, who would have thought I could break the dang thing??)  In other words, it's April.  It's also when I realize that while I have greatly enjoyed having my Saturdays free, my bank account would like it very much if I went back out there and actually sold something. Go figure.  So the fun begins again.  It should have really begun this morning, at City Market, but the forecast yesterday scared me off.  Thunderstorms, 2" of rain and high wind do not make for a good jewelry display.  So I chickened out.  Or used my better judgment, depending on how you look at it.  But next weekend - we'll be there!  (Partly because by then I should have the parts to fix the white tent.)  We still went over to the Market today - it was great!  Maple bacon cupcakes can't be beat - seriously, and I don't even really eat cupcakes.

In other business-type news, we're in at the new space in Woolworth, and LOVING it!  My friend Leslie at Roost Interior Design totally made all of the decisions on how it should look, and to be honest it looks way better than if I had figured it out myself.  Turns out there's a reason she's a design professional.  I've tried to take some pics, but they all look awful (in other news, the phone on one's camera may not be sufficient for all photographic needs.)  But if you're downtown, go look for us - we're near the back of the soda fountain, in one of the pass-through spots.

I've also got some new jewelry ideas going that are making me happy.  And I've tried to take pictures of those, too, but - well, see my observation about the camera phone above.  At some point I'm going to have real pictures taken, and then I'll show you what I'm talking about.


  1. Hey, it's great to have you blogging again. I saw your display at Woolworth Walk and indeed it is beautiful. Congrats!

  2. Thanks! I'm phasing into my "less mountain biking more working" phase, so the blogging should be a bit more regular. :)
