Getting Ready For "The Roost"

Finally getting back into the swing of things after what I thought would be a simple sinus surgery ...WRONG! I have literally been down and out for a few weeks, it kicked my butt! Upside, I lost 10 lbs. downside, fever;infection;pain. I know eventually I will reap the benefits of it all, but I've yet to experience it. Time will tell.


Now that I kinda' sorta' feel like myself again I've been trying to play catch up in project land. About a month ago I applied for a booth in a little antique and crafters venue called "The Roost" at Wade Creek House. Well, a few nights ago I was invited to attend their monthly meeting and bring in some samples of what I like to do to be jurried. I was nervous, something about being judged I guess. I brought in a menagerie of things painted, sewn, assembled. I do a lot of different things,repetition bores me.


Needless to say, all my worry was for nothing. They asked me to join their group and by the 15th of November I get to start creating vignettes in my booth. I am excited, but soooo behind. My project pile is daunting and let's just say I have been spending more time studying the bedroom ceiling than sleeping! This is something I have wanted to try for some time, and now I have the opportunity. I better go bundle up and head for the garage...I hear a few dozen dusty pieces of furniture calling my name.

Until next time- Carrie

Hi Carrie, love your aqua blog! Pink and aqua are my favorite colors. I like the way you painted the victrola cabinet in your last post, it came out beautiful!
I have that exact victrola with lots of old records. Mine plays music.
Have a nice day!
