That time of year~
Because I have been blessed with my Mother's genes,(yeah, I haven't always felt that way)
I have always been creative.
Now, don't get me wrong, that is not conceit. Trust me, coming from a french womans point of view, sometimes this can be very upsetting.
This is the time of year when anything and everything creative in my brain gives birth to a whirlwind of ideas.
And it doesn't stop until December 31st. Sometimes.
What the heck am I rambling about?
I make. I paint. I design. I cook. I get annoying. ( "get" you say?)
I see table napkins and immediately KNOW they would make great valances on the point over a curtain rod.
I see shapes of bottles and KNOW that , emptied, would be great filled with something other than the original purpose.
I see blank canvases and KNOW I can whip up a painting in about 45 minutes.
I see cool branches and KNOW I can hang them in my foyer from the ceiling with tiny white lights lit up in them.
I see some charms and buttons and KNOW it would make a great ring.
Getting the picture? Those who know me also know that this is the onset of such a season.
Which is why I have booked a boutique booth at a holiday fair thing in Puyallup this November.
I have made necklaces ( not your normal, boring, blase' grandma stuff) and mass rings to sell.
I also have made cakeplates and cupcake plates galore. (THAT is a whole other story!)I see tacky plates and glorify them into a new existence as a cake plate.
I am sure they are eternally grateful when that cake sits on them.
I will post a reminder to those for you who want to come in October!
Initially, I was planning on putting it all on Etsy but as soon as I make them, I have sold them!
Time to get busy making some jewelry...and maybe some cake plates!
