Blisters on my Fingers and a Smile on my Face

City Flea is coming up this Saturday.
I think I finally have my rhythm down for these shows.

I used to be in a panic before a big antique or craft show.
No more. 
I think it is partially learning how to handle things more efficiently.
Really though, I believe my blog friends Debby and Denise have imparted some truth in their comments to my post about bounty.
Having cancer can change you in a good way.
At least the type I had.
Treatable and operable and able to be put in the rearview mirror.

I am crafting away happily and what gets finished will.
Finger burns are nothing compared to radiation burns.
No stress.

I think this is the most focused and productive I have been in a long while.
Live for the moment as that is what we have been given.
I even have the van filled with some mid century goodies to fill out my space at City Flea.
I am slowly switching my shows from all vintage to artsy/craftsy with a 
few choice vintage pieces mixed in.
Enjoying the process as much as the finished product.

If you are in the Cincinnati area this weekend stop and say hello.
I will be the girl in the red glasses with the burned fingers and a big smile.

The soldering iron is calling.
Talk later.

Yours in the happy places, P.
Pin It!
