Showtime!

YES that's a feather in my hair:)
As I hit the new post button I just happened to notice this is my 500th post.  It seems fitting that this milestone would co-align with this big moment in my life.  I started this blog scared to hit that publish button for the first time, and here I am ready to embark on another "out there" adventure.  Can't believe I actually went through with this.  I am doing a show.  As you read this I am probably sitting there behind a table full of blood, sweat and tears.  Ready to show the world my stuff. 



Here's what I've been working on:)  My table is soooo different than all the other vendors.  In a sea of beige, cream and white, here I am all whimsical, colorful, childlike...ME!  Have to admit it's a little intimidating.  The IN look is rust and industrial and I am about as opposite from that as you can get.







Kristine has spent so many hours helping me.  She made my little Farmgirl Paints banner, helped me craft on different days, pulled together & merchandised my area...spent countless hours listening to me stress.  I could NOT have done this huge project without her!




This Flea Market Under Glass event really is a huge honor to be a part of.  I can tell ya I'm in some amazing company.  Each booth is just a treasure chest.





I love just walking around and getting ideas.  People are so amazingly talented. 




Okay so it's time to get going.  Wish me luck...send me prayers.  I'll let you know how it goes:)  Oh and if you live close you better come see me!!!





Have a blessed day.

  45. Okay!
    Here's me (Jill) leaving a post since you gave me much reason today when I met you! Your booth looked amazing and your art was of course inspirational. Had I not had a 4 year old fire fly under toe I would have spent way more time at your booth! Kicked myself all the way home for not getting the owl print!
    Anyway- I loved meeting you and look forward to being a "blogging" buddy in the future? We shall see!
    Blessings on you!

  57. I have done three shows now and I remember my first show and the feelings I had. My husband, daughter and I carried in my entire booth....in 1 trip. Some ladies had rented U-Hauls to bring in all their items. I had run to the store the night before to buy a plastic table clothe and the other boothes looked like Martha Stewart had decorated them. :-) Hang in there. Take some of(but not all) the advice the other ladies give you. Observe and learn. But most of all, give the day to God and then enjoy yourself.

  58. Oh Becky! It looks wonderful! You should be so very proud of yourself! The art and jewelry is special and beautiful. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete

  62. Miss Becky,

    To this I just want to say God is so way cool. You my friend are this person beautiful and real. Here I say thank you God for hearing my whisper and I am certain yours and many others prayers and just talks to God concerning this dream for you. Do you remember long, long ago we exchanged an email. I was saying you should start an etsy deal. I remember that day praying for a dream just like this to come true for you and it has and to that I say Thank you God, and well thank you Becky for putting your faith and well funky art style in action and out there for the world to see the wonder in you. Just so tickled happy for you! You are going to just SOAR!
    I can't wait to see what the future holds for you.

  65. It looks fantastic! Stand out be yourself. I've loved a white, distressed, pastel look for 10 years and will probably love it for the next 10 years because that's me. But I love your use of color! I love art in a home. And more importantly you were called to be you and you are doing that to the very best of your ability. Blaze away my friend. Color me inspired.
