There are ups and downs in every person’s life, and I am not immune to this. I had a craft show that was supposed to happen on the weekend, but it got cancelled due to rain. They actually cancelled it a few days before it happened, and I just kept thinking that they might call me at the last minute and tell me that it was back on. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. At first, after the disappointment, I was a bit confused because it was an outdoor market and those happen rain or shine in Canada, where I come from. The day of the supposed Fair did turn out to be grey and yucky and I was glad that I didn’t have to attend. Then I realized that the cancellation was actually a favor to the vendors because we wouldn’t have had much of a turnout. People that live here, stay inside when it’s cold and grey. Or they go and hang out in cozy, chic restaurants until it’s over. It was just a bit of a culture shock, but I’m over it now. I have two craft shows(possibly three) in December, so now I’m gearing up for those.
My Fiancee and I attended the Melrose Trading Post Flea Market on Sunday and we found a few great items. He got some old vinyls that he had been looking for, including a Crosby,Stills, Nash and Young vinyl called Deja Vu, and I got this amazing old piece of luggage to use for my craft table display. I think it’s from the forties and it’s full of character!
And a very hip and furry bluebird…
I love their jeans! These animals most definitely think that they are too cool!
Check out their low riding hipsta jeans bums…
I am also working on an otter. Otters are one of my favorite animals of all time. This one is a girl.
So, with a lot of time on my hands this week, I am making a committed effort to go to the gym everyday this week, which can be a very interesting experience with all of the celebrities that work out there. My other goal that I am working on is to design and start making holiday ornaments for my shows in December. I have some good ideas up my sleeve.
I hope you are all having a productive and creative week! I am off to get my cardio sweat on and pump some iron.
