First Friday will be the First Friday

for me at 1st Friday!

In case that was too subtle, I have a booth in 1st Friday.

For those who don't live in Phoenix, or don't get out at night, 1st Friday is a big event in downtown Phoenix ... you know what? Let me just give this link for more information on the event.

What I'm excited about is being able to participate as a vendor -- the spots have to be applied for and they are limited. If you want to find me August 4th, I will be on Garfield, between 5th and 6th Street (closer to 6th Street).

What am I doing this week? Just getting ready! I'm making some new totes (and I'm so excited about them!). Because of the size of crowds that are normally in attendance, I'm going to do a streamlined booth with tables across the front so I can see everyone and everything (I realized last time that it would be difficult with a larger crowd, but I still like it for smaller events) so I'm doing a trial set up in our living room tomorrow -- I have to decide what to take and what to leave home. And I have to get it all priced (or make sure I have signs pre-made for the too tiny for price tag items).

I really am excited - and a little nervous. If I'm being honest, most days I am overwhelmed by the number of things I have no idea how to do but need to do. When I'm feeling that way, I tend to create, so it's been good for that -- but I have to do the other things.

This event is a benchmark. It was one of the goals on my list that would be a sign I was moving in the right direction. I don't know what anything in the future will look like, but for now, I'm on track for where I'm trying to go. That's a very good feeling and I'm sitting with it tonight.

I hope I will see some of you there - especially if it's been awhile since I saw your amazing face! If you have any questions, or need more details, please reach out. I will do what I can to help. I will say when I'm heading downtown for events I like the light rail - parking and taking it from somewhere with more parking. But however you get there, it will be wonderful to see you!

And just for fun - here's an updated image with some of the totes I've been making :).

9 totes with various designs - upper right corner natural canvas bag with crocheted bottom and embroidered flowers with wooden buttons for centers; center top is natural  canvas bag with woven textile design; Black tote with wooden buttons in a heart desi
Just some of the totes I'm excited to have finished in time for this event!
