I attempted to find a really compelling quote about this lovely season but nothing seemed to suit. Didn’t do justice. It is an amazingly beautiful day, bright and glorious with an amazing soundtrack of spring-bird song, bees, hummingbirds, and so many frogs!
I think this spring is particularly full of new beginnings for me. I was accepted as a craft vendor at Pike Place Market and will be there with baskets of yarn later this month. With a two hour drive each way, it’s a bit of a commitment and my overhead is higher than I’d like but I’m hoping that it may develop into a dependable source of income. While I can’t imagine it ever becoming a full-time gig, it’s important for me to expand my selling platforms. Etsy was wonderful for the first 6 years or so but become much too big, Crafty Wonderland and Urban Craft Uprising and other events are amazing but at some point I know won’t be accepted into those shows. I’d love to have a once or twice a week gig at Pike Place as a way to keep from being overly dependent on a particular platform.
Speaking of Crafty, I’ve been accepted into the Summer Show!
And…I think I’m going back to school to finish my teaching degree. More on that later, but I’ve actually applied and am hoping of a start date in August or September. It’s a pretty big deal for me. A really big deal.
Seriously folks, today is so flipping beautiful. Here are a few photos which don’t begin to do it justice:
