America's Largest Christmas Bazaar--Portland, Oregon

I failed to already mention that this year my handmade shop,
Between the Lines, will be at
America's Largest Christmas Bazaar in Portland, Oregon 
Which of course, I do hope you'll come say hi if you are in the area!

Mine will be one of 500+ handmade booths and one of a thousand booths to shop
for your merry delight this Christmas season.

The fun begins the day after Thanksgiving, which many like to call Black Friday.  It runs through the weekend and the following weekend as well, totaling six days of business. 

This is big.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't wake up at 3:30am this morning thinking of all the work that needs to get done in the next month, and for a moment considered bowing out.  I'd be lying if I said I don't have a long list of honey-dos for Husband, supplies to purchase, samples to design, replicates to make and a 10 x 10 space to decorate.

I'm freaking out.

Yes, it is 5:44am and I am on my way to my studio with coffee in hand.
Yes, I'm going to regret this early rise come afternoon when my children are asking me to take them to the park and/or fighting over Calliou or the movie, Cool Dog. 
And yes, I need this in the largest print possible, today:

How exciting for you! Just focus on how wonderful it will be and all the possibilities that could happen by being a part of it. You'll do great :)

Thanks all for your kind, encouraging words! I thinking I'm moving out of the deer in the headlights stage and actually getting to work!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
