The Reveal

Hey gals! Sorry I've been MIA this week. It's been another one of those crazy busy, my plate is too full, kind of weeks. I just wanted to show ya'll real quick where the infamous birdcage ended up. I actually started to hate every single arrangement I came up with for the mantel the more I looked at the pictures. So for now the piano gets the privilege of holding "The Precious". You know by next week it will have a new home...that's just how I roll!



By the way, our cancelled craft show was rescheduled for next Sat, April 4th. So we're back on the crafting wagon and will be working our little fingers to the bone getting ready. We're so excited, but a little nervous. Why is it so personal? Why do I care if people like my stuff? Why am I stressing? I have no answers to these questions. I just needed to put it out there and get it out of my system.

I know...once again...I have issues.

Don't judge!

High five! It looks aaammmmaaazzziiinnng! The best. I just love how you but the sign above the cage too. Looks fabulous! (And just so you know, I talk just how I type and when I typed "aaammmmaaazzziiiinnngg", I sort of sung it out. Hahah!)

So my sin-n-law and I are going to start doing craft shows as well. Our first is May 9th. We are making wooden signs and Scrabble tile pendents. I'm so incredibly excited! We are both involved with a huge juried craft show this weekend and are hoping to get a spot in their show this upcoming fall. I'm incredibly excited about doing craft shows. I totally know what you mean about being nervous though. But I am so sure people will like your things. I wish I could come!

Cyndi said...

The bird cage looks super cute there!!! NO worries...You will do great at the craft show, you are so creative.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Looove it! I don't think you're weird at all for feeling nervous, but then again we are like twins separated at birth, so we could both just be crazy and not know it. ;) I certainly think you've got a creative flair goin' on!! :)

Mandi said...

Looks great on the piano and the moss in it really works too!

About the craft show, I wish you the best of luck and am considering doing one myself. Let me know how it goes and best of luck. Your stuff is fantastic, and I bet your only problem will be having enough. It is gonna sell sell sell!

Laurie said...

Yes! This is it! I love the arrangement! The birdcage is more the focal against the wood of the piano! Love it! Good luck on your craft show...wanna hear all about it!:)

Laurie said...

P.S. I have been looking for a birdcage to call my own!!:)

Hello
I've been doing art shows for almost 10 years now and I still get nervous!
It is like putting a big part of yourself out there so there is a fear of rejection.
I hope you do really well.
I enjoy your blog:)

I love it! If it mysteriously comes up missing you might wanna check my house for its whereabouts! Have a great weekend!

That looks so pretty! I'm very into moss right now - the color is just so springy. I love those lamps! So cute!

I think the new or most recent location of the birdcage is fabulous!

Shannon said...

It looks great there!! It really pops on the chocolate wall. I love all the moss!

Jenn said...

It looks so much better against a dark colored wall! Nice placement.

The Phillips Place said...

I like this arrangement the best! It looks great on your piano. The brown walls really help it pop! And I am still envious of that lush ribbon on your shades-- I have yet to find any that wide!

Ooooh the craft show--- nothing like canceling and rescheduling to build the suspense and nervousness, right? No worries-- your cute stuff is going to be a huge hit!!!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Amanda, it's PERFECT. I love the white you added, it complements the birdcage while allowing it to still be the STAR. Don't move it!! ;)

The cage looks awesome there! The green mossy stuff is perfect! I love it, it should always reside there.
