I am really trying to channel more excitement than anxiety as I prep for Market Collective this weekend. I want to make this short and sweet so I can get back to work and have as much possible ready.
Our basement has been converted to work station number one. The gym floor is a great hard surface for pounding nails and it dampens a lot of the noise while my girls are slumbering upstairs. I'm a total night owl - it takes a lot of discipline for me to not work until three in the morning. It's been great to have Christmas specials on TV making noise in the background, I've been watching Planet Earth - and then last night at my girl friend's suggestion I listened to a few podcasts. There's a rhythm and structure to the process which I find meditative. I'm able to think about nothing and everything all at once.
Our kitchen island has also become home to smaller projects like watercolour Christmas sets, gift tags, and some classic sunrise/sunset inspired watercolours. I chip away as the girls colour at the table or eat their meals. Market prep has been more involved than I planned and I can't say thanks enough to hubs for doing the tedious job of attaching the saw tooth hangers to the bigger boards.
Here's a few sneak peak shots at what's coming to the market with me. Can't wait to see you all!
