Fabric Flowers, La Vie

February 28th, 2007


It’s been a very busy week. I’ve been working more than full-time with my freelance, and wouldn’t you know it I Heart Rummage is this weekend, so I’ve been trying to put all of the pieces into place. It’s not a graceful process. My house is a mess. My husband and I have not had a proper dinner for a few nights (does a martini and olives count?). Now I remember why working and wifedom does not work out for me. A girl needs her beauty rest, her clean home, and time to cook and craft. Too bad I can’t have it all, because I actually enjoy working…most of the time.

Anyhow, I have about 60 items for the show, ranging in price from $2–$55. I’m starting to feel a little nervous about this whole thing. What if I sell nothing and I revert back to the poor, sad child who moved so many times nobody liked her and was always picked last at gym class? What then?

    I meant to say ‘fine’, of course.

    I am sure you will sell plenty :) Best of luck, although I don’t think you’ll need it!

    i understand that fear all too well, dacia, but i don’t think you’ll have any problem selling your things. not only that, it’s a good way to get yourself out there. Good luck!

    I’m going to have a busy weekend, i’m going to try to come by and see you.

    You are going to be a raging success! But I really understand the anxiety, I always have those attacks of self-doubt. The event seems way too cool to attract people who would not appreciate all your hard work. And by some bizarre chance that there is a monsoon and the two people who show up don’t buy your work….I would still pick you to be on my crafty team!
