Take a deep breath and relax

Show season just came to a very successful end for me. I’ve had the best year yet with my craft business, and I am very happy. I learned more about the show circuit than I ever anticipated, met some fantastic, talented people, and made some great friends. I couldn’t have imagined that 2013 would be so much fun.

Now, it’s time to take a little break before gearing up for 2014 shows. It’s so weird for me to not have a looming deadline. I get to sit back and enjoy Yule and Christmas with my family.When I get new craft ideas, I just add them into my sketch book, and go on playing with the kids. I will work on them in January.

I’m excited about next year. I have some really fun projects slated and I’m looking forward to getting started on them. For now, though, there is a 3 yer old who is waiting for me to help build some train tracks with him.

Shabby Chic Vintage Luggage Lamp!

Shabby Chic Vintage Luggage Lamp!

This is the lamp I made from 3 vintage suitcases. I also made the shade from an old shade frame, some remnant drapery fabric, and remnant drapery trim. I’m selling this on Etsy for $145 plus $40 shipping. https://www.etsy.com/listing/171316079/vintage-luggage-lamp?ref=shop_home_active
