A different Christmas

I just feel like typing my thoughts. Let's get personal.

This is the first Christmas away from my family in North Carolina. Thanksgiving was nice and I got to cook dinner with my fiance and spend time together. But Christmas is different. It will be strange to not go to two different homes. Eat two different meals (one at his family's house, one at my family's house), open two sets of gifts. We will spend it together with our two dogs. We will have a nice Christmas Eve and Day. It is just a new feeling...but new is okay.

The end of this year has been the busiest in Amy's Creative Corner yet. I completed 21 different pet portraits, a few pendant necklaces, and prints that were sent out as Christmas gifts. They were shipped all over! To Australia, Finland, London, which is very exciting. I think it felt crazier and more hectic than it has in the past is because I simultaneously had to work my full time job, as a manager/event coordinator at a Vineyard. My fiance has been a great help to me and I appreciate him for his support.

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Thank you for your support in my business. I hope to continue to progress in the New Year. 2013 was good, but I think 2014 will be even better!

Holiday Bazaar at the Vineyard at Gruene

It has been a while since my last art show, craft fair or holiday market. This one is special for a few reasons: It is the first one outside of NC since moving to TX. It is at the venue where I work as the manager and event coordinator. It is the first time I have been on the other side of a show. Coordinating!

It has been so nice seeing all of the interest from local vendors to share their wares. We are going to have an eclectic group of vendors. Jewelry makers, kettle corn makers, basket weavers, face painting, fondu sets, beauty products, etc.

I am so excited for this Saturday, December 7 from noon-4pm at the Vineyard at Gruene. I will have my table set up outside but will be running around taking care of business too. Should be interesting!
