I feel like these skull faces right now.
Good news- (I think!)
I'm in the Babylon Art Gallery Arts and Crafts showcase in July-August 2014 here in Ely, England. I was accepted last week and consequently have been freaking out as to what I'm going to showcase. Maybe you guys can tell me what you like best from Hungryhippie? Quilts? Totes? Garments? Pillows? I can take eight pieces, and will take some of the things I sent as samples when I applied, but... Well....My mind is a jumble of thoughts. I want to blow them away ya'll, so help a girl out and give me some advice. :D
Do I go bright? Do I keep it calm and English-y with flowers and shabby chic style things? Am I worried for no reason? Why do I feel so nervous? ----Too many questions.
The people that come to the exhibit will be able to purchase on the spot, so maybe this is why I'm getting all panicky. Not because of money, but because--well----I've been the "last person finishing the race" (literally) too many times in my life and this time I want to shine. Ya know? Can you feel me?
I think we all struggle with balancing life, our passions, our jobs, and our insecurities. I wasn't going to enter this at all, but my friend gave me a nudge so I did....When I got the "you're in" letter I just sat there on the floor. Not like it's the Met or anything but you know, it's my first time.........I'm an Art Gallery virgin with my Hungyhippie stuff. I don't know....
I guess what I'm saying is, can you give me some girl power?
When we lift each other up, we lift ourselves up as well. I need some good thoughts sent my way, because I feel so shaky at this moment.
I haven't even told my husband that I'm in the showcase.
Or any friends. You are the first to know, (beside my Mom of course)- don't you feel special? LOL ;)
I'm just going to try and chillax and do my thang, and print this off to put right above my sewing table:
I'm so appreciative of every comment, every read, every person who takes the time to stop by here. Thank you. Whether you realize it or not, you give me another reason to keep trying. This time it's Ely, maybe next time it's New York. ;)
Aim high. Or something. hahhahaha
