Fun Day Prep!

Happy May Day! I am getting ready for my first outdoor event of the season this week! It's also the first time that I will be selling some of the vintage items that I have found to pair with my jewelry! I'm so excited… Goodness I hope it doesn't rain!

This Saturday Celebrated Lady will be at Annie's Vintage Venues in Woodstown, New Jersey for their Fun Day on May 3rd. I first went there a few weeks ago and everyone was so nice! I saw so many things I wanted but I mainly ended up just window shopping. I did find a beautiful old jewelry box though, that I am going to use in my displays. I think it will showcase my jewelry quite nicely. I'm so glad that I get to join them and have a spot to sell my work.

I have been organizing my studio and making new items all week. Cutting out tags, inventory… all that fun stuff that goes with the territory of show prep. The crates are stained, every thing is priced, and I have my plan of attack for setting up. Lets just hope wind or rain doesn't cramp my style. The best thing about doing a show is that I end up being filled with so many ideas! A show or a home party just fills me with inspiration. I end up having to say, "okay no more making new pieces until after the show", so that I can focus on the other tasks at hand. Though to much inspiration is not a problem that you will find me complaining about.

Which leads me to the final step of getting my jewelry lady groove back, taking part in an outdoor Spring show! Much has changed in a year for me. Moving was such a shift in momentum. Now that my studio is all settled, I finally really feel back at home in my creative space because everything is awesome in my new studio, but more importantly it finally has the right feel to it… It has finally become a place of creativity to house creativity, which is artist speak for… I'm going to make lots of cool stuff in this room!

Thats' why I'm so glad to finally have my studio in order. I'm sourcing vintage findings and making my own clay beads again… all is right with the world.

If your in the South Jersey area stop on by Annie's Vintage Venues this Saturday from 10 to 4 p.m. and find the Celebrated Lady table to say Hi. There will be all new pieces available that are not in the store as well as selected vintage items! It would be the perfect place to find something special for a Mothers Day Gift!
