I found the hashtag #MakersGonnaMake on instagram a while back and I have to say this could sum up my life for the past few months…years… My mind is always thinking, planning and dreaming about what I’m going to make next. I had a dream last night about making my cat art into an Advent Calendar…doesn’t that sound cute…for all the Cat Ladies out there? I’m beginning to think of goals and ideas for 2016, and plan on using my Happy Planner to set at least three goals a month. I haven’t literally sat down to create these goals but the ideas are in my head. First though it’s a time for family and celebration, Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas four weeks away! I am currently working on my December Daily/ Journal your Christmas…here is a sneak peek of the cover… yes making it into a work of art
I have really just skimmed the Christmas Planning. We have come up with our theme this year, Country Christmas, we will be decorating with lots of greenery, pinecones and red raffia. My Christmas Planner pages are set, now I only need to fill them with all the thoughts in my head. I keep waiting for the perfect opportunity of quiet time with a cup of coffee.
Truth be told, the show business…that is craft shows having been taking a toll on my time… I might have just over booked myself a wee bit. I have one more show this Saturday and another on December 12. So I am REALLY looking forward to the next two weekends to get the house cleaned and decorated for the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!! I plan on doing a detailed blog post on what I have learned from my year of craft shows in the new year.
(Here is a photo of my set up at the Boerne Handmade Market)
One more update, I have fallen in love with the new planner/ stationery kits I have been making. These were a custom order from my long time friend that is a teacher. I plan on having lots of these in my ETSY shop soon.
Well, I’m off to paint a few more items before this weekend’s show. Thanks for stopping by, Rebecca
