Preparing and Such

My very tired and worn out self feels hodgepodgey this week, so this post is also hodgepodgey. Even on my worst days I'm still bound by these people pleasing chains - so, I do apologize for the random post. But there sure is a lot happening around here.

First of all - I am planning a very indepth trip to the flea market this weekend. The biggest flea market trip I've ever planned, and I am almost to the point of crying in my sleep with excitement. Is that even a real thing? People don't actually cry in their sleep with excitement - BUT I MIGHT. I have about 50 ideas of what I want to look for and purchase or use as inspiration. Whomever I recruit to help me this weekend has a big day ahead of them.

Secondly - in a week, I'm heading back home to Missouri to celebrate my Grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary.
They are the cutest. I mean, come on. Seriously.

Third - I am PUMPED about June. One: it is my birthday month. I kind of go nuts around my birthday every year. This year has no reason to be any different. Two: All this flea marketing is pointing to one very exciting thing... drumroll please... THIS!

I'm going to have a booth set up at the first ever Nashvegas Craft Fair! Which means I'll be building a booth, stocking up on paintings, journals, a few new goodies, and passing out business cards until my arms fall asleep.

Also in June is something called Pin It Forward, which should be great fun. It's a blog chain of sorts that features some REALLY talented and inspiring writers and designers... and so you don't think I'm getting a big head about it all, I just found out about it early enough to sign up. Basically for me this means that some people I really admire in the design industry will see my blog. No big deal for some people. Big deal to me. So to prepare myself for that in the way I prepare the best, I am getting a makeover. Not new clothes for me this time though; I'm getting a new blog look. I bit the bullet and asked a graphic designer to make this thing look legitimate. (Anyone under the age of 20, take note, the word "legit" is ACTUALLY short for the word legitimate... try using the real word sometimes.) So be expecting that soon.
So I'm focusing on these happy fun things and preparations. And guess what... I just decided this. If you stop by my booth at the Nashvegas Craft Fair and tell me you're a blog reader, I'll give you a special little thank you gift. WOOT WOOT. I do love to give gifts.
