This photo was taken on Friday after I set up all of my jewelry in the handmade and vintage goods shop, Mormor. In less than two weeks visitors will be able to purchase my earrings and bracelets! This crazy and somewhat farfetched dream that I had a couple years ago, is actually about to become reality. I couldn't be happier and more thankful for this opportunity. Please visit Carrie and the Mormor website to learn more about all of the wonderful and talented artists that have work in her shop. It's so spectacular and sweet of her to dedicate an entire space to artists of Western Mass. Also, she makes some fabulous hand bags! I know that I will spend a great deal of time shopping in there. So many wonderful and beautifully made things that I
want need. Photo credit: Carrie Keefe
Also! This weekend is our very first dance competition of the season. I'm biting my nails over here. It's the first time that I have ever had my choreography in a competition. I also have two groups of competition newbies. All under the age of twelve. It's an overwhelming experience to say the least. Especially for the dancers who know nothing about how a competition works. Aside from what they see on the-show-that-shall-not-be-named. And of course all of my newbie competition girls watch it. It's sad because they all think they know what competition is like but let's be real here.. It's. Nothing. Like. That. Ridiculous. Show.
I'm just praying that they have a wonderful time on stage and stay calm. Because I know that I'll be a nervous wreck inside and I'm not sure how I would be able to deal with eight children freak-outs and along with my own. Cross your fingers that we all keep it together!
Enjoy your Monday loves.
