… and all those bad study habits came back like it was yesterday when it’s been more like 10 years (or more).  I applied to show at Urban Craft Uprising’s Holiday show, which is juried.  Yay me!  So exciting.

The application process reminded me a bit of those short answer questions you had in high school and college. Then there was the technical side of uploading pictures, fee paying online – it was like the SATs all over again.  I broke out into a cold sweat at one point and needed to text my husband who’s travelling for work this week about file memory and which was largerMB or KB?  Yeah, that’s how technically un-savvy I am and one of the reasons why I need to keep a happy marriage!

The deadline was last night at midnight and guess who  turned their application in about two hours before the deadline?


Some things never change…

In the mean time I’ve been doing the weekend market in Coupeville, WA and am super proud to say that two of my skirts made the cut for the First Day of School outfit for a customer and she came back looking for more.


One of “the chosen”.

The other skirt is actually behind this is one in a navy blue with super cute vintage yellow buttons.  I loved the purple and mustardy color combo on this one.  I think I might be losing my cred as whenever someone starts looking at the skirts I tell them how “THAT one is my favorite” but then I start saying that about every single skirt.  It’s true though is the thing…

Love what you do.
