My business-side is getting on quite nicely. I feared that by working in mass-production my soul would shrivel up a little bit, but it's not like that at all. Working systematically (by sewing a bunch of bear ears in a row and then sewing up all the buttons and yadda, yadda) actually has a nice rhythm to it. Also, my least favorite sewing chore is changing the thread, and I don't have to do that nearly as often, so that part is especially nice. I am building up my supply for this fair in O'Fallon which is near St. Louis and has the cutest graphics I have ever seen for a craft fair:
See? I told you. Isn't it nice? So, I plan on mass producing my favorite designs for the next two months and also figuring out how to design a fun booth. I have decided not to go back to school. My heart just isn't in it, I would rather live on the out-skirts of society and make stuff in my little room and then travel around with my stuff and see if others will bring it into their homes. I also fantasize about being a mom some day and taking my kids around the country in the summer time to different arts fair happenings and then exploring different cities with them. I think it could be a nice life. Sigh.
