Thank you!!!

Oh. my. goodness. Athens, you rock!

Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by the Athens Indie Craftstravaganza yesterday. I had such a blast and it was so great to meet so many of you! It was such a successful show and there were so many great local artisans there. It was way bigger than I had anticipated (almost 100 crafters) and thousands of attendees. I loved having people stop by my booth and tell me that they recognize my jewelry and hair accessories from various places all over town. Thank you so much to all my repeat customers as well as all you brand new ones!

I had a few new things occur at this craft show than in previous events. 1) I was on the far end of the fair, right next to a long alley way which basically turned into a wind tunnel. At one point, my bulletin board jewelry stands turned into sails and my booth was closed for about 30 minutes while I untangled all my jewelry. Luckily no damages, just a big crazy mess. 2) I had my first shoplifter. I have always heard horror stories about this happening, but have been lucky so far. I think for as many shows as I have done in the past year, to only have one $25.00 necklace stolen, I should count my blessings. But I am now going to be eagle-eyed at my next show. 3) This was my first time having a line. Like an actual check-out line with more than one person waiting. Super flattering to say the least.

My husband starting taking photos when he came to give me a potty break but the camera died after about five photos and I forgot batteries. are the four photos that turned out! These were taken right after I reopened, with all my jewelry lying flat and safe.

Athens Indie Craftstravaganza!!

Hello Athens, GA friends!!

If you live in/near/around Athens, you need to come to the Indie Craftstravaganza holiday market tomorrow! I am so excited to participate as this will be my first time as a seller with this group. I had been to their May market and loved it, so I am so stoked to be able to participate tomorrow. The market is from 10am-6pm and besides having over 60 different artisans selling their handmade goods, there will be food carts, crafting demos and other fun activities. If you have been to one of their craft shows before, you now what kind of awesomeness it is going to be.

Tomorrow's market is at a brand new location, so don't go to the old area near Agora on Clayton Street. It is located in the parking lot of Ben's Bikes off of Pope and Broad Street near downtown. I am not sure if the booths will be numbered for buyers to see or if there will be a map, but if there is, I will be booth 37. It is smack dab in the middle of the main aisle.

I am going to have lots of new jewelry (brand new items: bracelets), more knitted goodies and my signature flowers. I really hope that you can make it and can't wait to see you there!

December Goals

As the new month is upon us (and my birthday month!), I decided to make a list of ten goals that I would like to accomplish this month. I am planning on keeping this list updated throughout the month and everything that is highlighted BOLD has been accomplished, things italicized are in progress.

1) Run 100 miles in December. If I follow my marathon training plan, I should be running 101 miles.

2) Lose 1 pound a week. With my birthday and Christmas, this is going to be a challenge.

3) Take outfit photos of myself at least twice a week.

4) Read three books (One of which is rereading East of Eden. I got this from the library last week and I haven't started it yet).

5) Keep track of my calories 6 days out of the week and maintain my daily calorie allotment 6 days out of the week (except for my birthday!!).

6) Learn how to work my sewing machine. Sew something simple, yet awesome. Pillows, curtains, skirt.

7) Work on and finish my husband's Christmas present. It's a secret, but quite a bit of work.

8 ) Steam clean the carpet in my apartment

9) Train my puppy 20 minutes each day, 7 days a week. Hopefully get him to master down, shake and speak.

10) Only read Perezhilton for 20 minutes a day.
