And hopefully making enough to continue this dream of ours. This is our third year at this show, and it is HUGE (I wish I knew how to make double caps). I have only walked about a 1/4 of the show so far. And it is so inspiring to be surrounded by so many artists living their dreams and creating from their most passionate heart. Etsy has a big presence here this year. They have a whole section of the show dedicated to etsian artists. And they are having raffles several times a day for etsy shopping sprees.
Because we are staying in a hotel that is connected to the Merchandise Mart, where the show is located, we really don't have to go outside. It is a foreign way to live for us. And I cannot cook...which is really like being transported to some other life, almost another planet for me. If I couldn't go sit in that rocker every now and then and see the beautiful wood from the forest that we are surrounded by at home and breathe, I'd be a little dizzy from it all.
I hope that wherever you are you have a little oasis of peace, a soft place to sit, a reminder to breathe....and a bit of glitz for balance too;)
