OMG OMG OMG OMG! <— this is what I was saying in my head three days ago when I got confirmation that I was confirmed to show my wares in the Etsy booth at Bumbershoot THIS weekend! Check out the Storque’s article on it here: Etsy in Action: Aug 30 – Sept 5

The first OMG was pure Joy. Like, “OMG! They like me! They really like me!” — that sort of thing.
The second OMG was Disbelief. As in “OMG! Did I read that right? Let me read it again!”
The third OMG was more of a realization of the scope of such an offer. “OMG…a full day at Bumbershoot? The biggest festival of the year??? How many hundreds of people will see my work in ONE day???”

Then…the last OMG was a serious reality check. “What the heck am I going to bring? I’ve been selling my bags and not really sewing much. O…M…G…! I’m in for some serious sleepless nights…”

Then to top it all off, I find out they’re featuring my Comic Book Charm necklaces in the article. OMG. I need to make some necklaces too?? Yikes.

To give you a little idea of what it’s like to be me right now, you need to add this amazing news on top of some really amazing, very real offers to buy my Tote2Go! double shoppers wholesale (which I’m still working on), my father going in for some minor surgery next week (which I’ll be going down to LA for), two Big “green” festivals coming up (Seattle Tilth Harvest Fair, Sept. 6th and GreenEdmonds, Sept. 13th), EtsyRAIN exploding with new members, events and activities…etc etc etc.

Yeah. I’m nuts. Insane. Completely mad. I’ll be the first to admit it.

I wouldn’t have it any other way :)

See you at Bumbershoot on Saturday! (Carrie of glitzconcepts.etsy.com will be there with me…it’s going to be a FUN day!!!)
