I've got a Super busy week ahead too......Holiday Hair show at Tom Walker's Hair Salon, on Tuesday Eve , 4:00pm-7:00pm. (Pilchuck Landing, here in Snohomish.) I participated in this last year, and it was really fun! All the stylists take part in giving clients and visitors a "Holiday-'Do'" idea.....They'll put you in a chair and show you a fun thing or two!
Then,,,,,,,Next Saturday? You can find me at the Fantabulous "Second Saturdayz" Market Event in Seattle! I'm really excited to take part in the show, for SO many reasons! I've come to know and love many of the Vendors that take part in this Monthly Show. Wowza! These guys are PRO's! Ladies and Gentleman, THIS is the BIG leagues and I'm honored to take part in the December Venue! "I'm not Worthy!" (What movie was that from?)
But truly I'm honored. If you're in the Greater Seattle Area, this event is held at Warren Magnuson Park
(7400 Sand Point Way, NE, Seattle, WA.) Or as I know it from my Childhood the old Sand Point Naval Station. Early Birds starts at 8:00am and the Event runs till 3:00PM. Come on by and "Get your Jingle on!"
I spent a lot of time at that Navy base as a kid. My dad was a retired Naval Officer and we'd go to the "Commissary and the Post Exchange." It was kind of like the "Costco" of sorts, for those with Military Bennies in the 60's and 70's....I bought my FIRST cosmetics (Elizabeth Arden) on the base......as well as some of my FAV clothes (oh my Stars I am so Dating myself...."Bobbie Brooks" Fashions)
I graduated a 17 and my "Bennies" lasted till I was 21, so I got my first set of dishes there too. Mikasa....I was in heaven! They were SO cute in my first apartment.
(Psssssssst, I say to myself...."Okay Shell", once again you have started on ONE topic (upcoming Events) and managed to slide into nostalgic oblivion,,,,,Mikasa Dishes (but pssssst......they were really really cute,,,,,,octagon plates/cups with pink and green roses on ivory porcelain) It's the ADD in me.) But they are happy memories!
I'm hoping to create some NEW happy memories at this upcoming venue! Great Venue, fun, talented Vendor friends, Holiday Spirit! Sounds pretty good!
Have a Great new week! And say a little prayer that Shell stays on "task" and yet manages to wedge a few days of Creating in there!
My love to you all,,,,,,This is a hard time of year for SO many reasons....Pressure/deadlines/obligations, memories. Me? I'm looking for the Spirit of the Season in little things. A Thank you, a Hug, a Smile, and yes, a Prayer or two. It's not about material things. The latest gadget, the designer purse, jewels etc.
Have a GREAT week! I hope to share some photos of both Venues! Can't wait to see what YOU are up to!
Hugs, Love and a "Memorable" Bus on the Cheek!
