Remember this post from last year? I took these pictures at the Junk Bonanza in Sept. of 2006 at the warehouse of the JunkMarket gals. I am so excited to say that this year they are expanding their Junk Bonanza to over 100 vendors and its going to be held literally just down the road from where I live. Could I get any lucker?! Maybe.....because I'm *hoping*...yes, really hoping to be a vendor there this year. I think I have a pretty good shot. How fun would that be to have my ArtsyMama provisions as part of the the Junk Bonanza festivities. A dream come true! It's not certain yet, but I felt like sharing this part of my journey with you. I feel that sometimes to proclaim your goal helps make it a reality. I makes it more concrete. It's a juried flea market so I sent in pictures of my wares and a letter explaining what ArtsyMama is all about. I feel like I'm giving it my best shot. Isn't it fun when you can just feel things evolve. Reaching out to that next step. It just feels right. This has been such an interesting journey for me starting this blog. I had no idea where it was headed back on that November day in 2005. It's been such a creative outlet for me and catalyst for my growth as an artist and entrepreneur. I have had so much fun making things for my etsy shop that this seems like a natural progression. I know I'm up for it...ArtsyMama is ready for it... and it would be a fabulous experience. Mind blowing! But it also scares me like the dikens. My censor comes out and wants to chase all my dreams away and tell me I'm not good enough. I feel that proclaiming my intentions and aspirations I'm giving the censor a good smack in the behind and sending it packin'. It doesn't belong here. So that's my pep talk for tonight. Wish me luck!
