Market and Market Meet up

Market was spec-tac girls!! There were so many there from utah I really couldn't believe it. What a small world we really do live in.

I volunteered and was a door person at the food court. That is what i did last time it came to salt lake. and it is fun and all– but really you are only looking at the same 4 booths or aisles the whole time! What a drag. They wouldn't let us walk the rows and chat it up with the goodies… you know I would totally chat it up!

I do have to come clean here and admit something.  I was standing there– and all of a sudden i was a little vaclempt. lol  I got a bit teary eyed.  Not because I was surrounded by these wonderfully talented people.  Not because of the wonderful goodies my eyes saw. {though these are perfectly good reasons for tearing up}  but because I am fooling myself. 

I was thinking to myself– why aren't i here?  Besides being a door person.  Why aren't I walking the halls, rows and chatting with the good people of Market world?  What is my issue?  Why don't I have a business licence? I don't I have my workshop site up and running again?  What the H E double toothpicks am I doing?  I shouldn't be getting giddy over volunteering for the show and seeing a tiny corner and be all happy about that.  I should be mixing it up and spreading my patterns and workshop site like a bad cough.

Has this ever happend to you?  It was sort of the wakeup call.  This time I am hopeing that i will not hit the snooze button again.

So, this leads me to some big decisions and some big moves.  By the end of this month the plan is to have things in place so I can properly market, sell and grow. 

I don't have any photos from market–only market meetup and just 1-above-  but I am sure there are some great ones out there! I did go to Market Meet up though and met some wonderful girls there!!
