My second Uptown Market event (the final U.M. of the year), was even better than the first. The weather was absolutely gorgeous: no threat of rain, a light breeze, and a temp in the mid-seventies... Ahhhhh. The turn out was a little better, my display was more catchy, and my neighbors were awesome.

I know, I know, I really should be working on building up my inventory for the final Uptown Market this Sunday. Or, I should be adding new pieces to my dwindling stock in my shop. Or, I should be making prototypes of season-based pieces from the sketches I've drawn. But, I've been having way too much fun working on some very cool custom pieces.

Wooo Hooooo! We did it!

It feels incredibly good to have my first craft fair over and done. It was a great experience and, like most newbies, I learned a lot, thankfully with few regrets. The weather ignored all the prognostications for heavy rain, and gave us pocketed sunshine throughout most of the day with only about five minutes of a very light sprinkle mid-day. Every minute that it didn't rain, my smile got bigger and my shoulders relaxed more.

...and tired! Once again I have stayed up way too late working on other things (see previous post) and managed to catch a treasury opening. Here's the latest, inspired by one of Kendra's amazing new paintings. I love the colors, the forms, and the overall energy of the piece. It makes me happy. Enjoy!

I really ought not to stay up so darn late, but I did and I happened to catch the main treasury opening*. All I had to do to find delicious items to collect was to look in my favorites. If I could, I would buy them all up right now. For the moment, I'll settle for a good, long drool over them. Enjoy.
