June flew by and before I knew it I had neglected my blog for weeks! Oops! I could say life is crazy but who's isn't, right? Most of my time the during the past few weeks has been spent driving, picking, hunting, bargaining, digging - and repeat! I'm learning a little more with each month the shop is open, and now with 2 months under my belt, it's becoming clearer what people love (luckily it's what i love too!) and what flies out the door the quickest. It's also crystal clear that it's many more hours of work than I ever imagined when I started this venture, but lucky for me it's all very rewarding and happy work!!
This week the name of the game is FOCUS!! I don't have any! Right this minute in my living room there are two chairs being upholstered, a mirror being glued to an old piece of architectural salvage, 2 lights being wired, and a giant metal heart with wings waiting to be hand painted.... whew!!! The mess!!! As you can guess I am having trouble doing one project at a time, but it seems I get halfway and end up not having something I need so I move on. I also don't seem to put anything away! It's always distracting the week before I'm open because there are so many possibilities and I have to pick and choose which to have for this month. So back to the mess, and back to making some decisions so that you all have some fun and unique things to look at next week!
Who Am I?
I've tried it all..hair stylist/faux painter/stay at home mom/jewelry artist/late in life college student. Through all of those former "careers" I have had one constant passion.. a love of junk, flea markets and creating! It took me 30 years to find the courage do this full time and I have finally settled on what I'm going to be when I grow up!
