I started this blog because I had bought a new house and was making big changes to it. Everyone kept asking about progress and thus I decided to show the progress.
To be completely honest, I don’t love to write. Its almost a chore – what I love is getting my hands dirty and thinking up new projects or working with paint and old furniture. I like the work put into a big transformation and the end result. What I don’t like is giving the step by step instructions – probably because I typically make it up as I go.
One thing this blog has been good for is building my confidence. I always thought my ideas were a little bit out there and not near as “mainstream” as a Pottery Barn, per say. But the feedback I have received over the past year would say otherwise. People like to see you do things they would have never thought of. You guys are such a good cheer squad.
The bible tells us that if you “delight yourself in the Lord, he will give you the desires of your heart”
A desire that has been on my heart for so long is to take my creativity and make it into a business. Sell things. Go places. Meet new people. Challenge myself creatively.
Last week this desire came true in a small but significant way.
I was accepted as a vendor to Vintage Market Days here in Tulsa
On May 17-19 I will have my first 10X10 booth full of fun furniture, vintage goodies, and handmade items.
This is a huge step; a step that requires planning, preparation, prayer, a Tax ID, and lots of paper work.
The Lord opened this door for me, he is giving me the opportunity to see a desire of my heart come to fruition. This experience my quench my desire but it might awaken so much more, only time and a lot of prayer will tell. In the next 6-8 weeks you will be seeing tons of new furniture hitting the blog. Items that will be held for VMD that you can get your hands on in May.
I cant wait until May but until then I will be working myself to the bones.
