I'm excited to announce I've been accepted to one of the nation's premier shows, Yankee Peddler Festival. I did this show for 13 years, and only bowed out when my mom and dad became ill eight years ago. It is 3 weekends every September. This is the show's 37th year.
The first and second photos were taken at YPF in 1989. Aren't my 'boys' beautiful??
The show takes you back 200 years, visiting pioneer
When I first participated in this fabulous show, Tom was 6. That was 20 years ago! I managed to create 500 dolls....and sold out that first year! Shortly after, I quit my teaching job!!
This has necessitated that I 'step up' my business and production plan for this year. As you can imagine, RoseCreekCottage is humming away quite early in the morning.....ending the days late at nite. The good thing: I LOVE it! As any artist knows, when you thrive on creativity, it's a 'drive' that you cannot ignore. It literally 'runs' you. (further explained in a future post!)
My show schedule is quickly filling up for this year. I've been accepted to 11 shows so far. That should keep me busy and out of trouble, don't you think?
This post was nominated for POST OF THE DAY over at David's authorblog. Thank you, David!
