Happy Blogaversary to Me!

It's here. I kinda feel like I missed it, but it's here...(and this post is sort of lame, but I'm really tired so I apologize for that).

Why did I miss it? Because of this:

I'm barely standing at this's been an exhausting weekend, this time more because it wasn't the best show. And I'm not sure quite why. Perhaps people are really feeling pinched, and are watching their pennies closely, maybe because I'm more of a luxury item? But it didn't seem to affect other vendors, so my question is this:

Am I passe? Behind the times? (sigh)

I surely hope not. (But just in case that's a possibility, I've got a couple of other designs on the drawing board, so stayed tuned next month...

Anyway, it's my blogaversary, so I apologize if I'm less than upbeat, but it's hard to put the effort into a show like that and have it not be successful.'s my blogaversary! And I have 3 winners in my contest - one from each color category! If you look at sheer numbers, White had 19 votes, Petal had 15 votes, and Blush had 4.

1. In the Petal group: Pam! - I laughed till I cried over your reason for orange...there was no way I could ignore the most amusing comment - it had to win "first place!"

The other two winners were drawn randomly:
2. In the Blush group: Marsha and she gave me so much to think about with regard to Fauvist's (I didn't know that term before, so I learned much from the comment!) - I do adore Matisse tho...hmmmm

3. Representing the White group: Lana had a good suggestion for using white against my face's always been a good color choice for me.

I'll be contacting each of the winners for their mailing addresses and thank you so much - everyone - for commenting and giving me your perspectives! I appreciate it. I don't know that I've EVER had comments from 38 people on one post before!

Now...what color am I going to use? well...I have to admit I haven't decided yet. I'm leaning toward white, tho' - I think...or maybe the Petal...or maybe...the Blush! *wink*

Someone is very glad to have me home - and even wanted to play with the camera strap!

I hope your week is a good one. I'm planning a little bit of rest in here somewhere...I feel like I really need it.

First, Happy Blogiversary! Second, I'm so sorry the show didn't go as well as you'd hoped -- that's such a frustrating thing to have happen, when you put all that work and time into preparing. And it's sometimes so random, the things that make people buy or not buy at a given time! Hang in there, and definitely enjoy your well-deserved down time :)

All good things to you on this, your blog anniversary!

Happy Blogiversary, and many more!

So sorry the show didn't go as well as planned. But you did get to meet the woman who bought your mother's house. And maybe that's what this show was for?

A cup of tea and a good night's sleep and a hug to you.

Happy blog-iversary! I tend to agree with you about people slightly watching their pennies right now. Things have been slow all around. My job is a luxury item for most, necessity for few so i can understand. Also the fear of "taxes" this month make it harsh. But new items can only add more $$ when things get back to normal and then will give you the edge! Now go sleep!

Congrats to the winners!

Happy Blogiversary! I'm sorry the weekend was less than satisfying for you. Hopefully it was just a fluke and things will be better next time.

Happy Happy Blog Anniversary! Don't worry too much about that show ... one bad show does not a trend make! (Mmmm, that wording sounds a bit like Yoda. Or Gollum. Yikes!)

I'm thinking it's time to swatch those colors and see which combo you like.

Happy Blogiversary!

You are *not* passe! I just don't think that every single show can be a success. Like Karen said, "live to vend another day." You'll bounce right back. :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
