I work as a professional stage manager and have been for the past 20 years. I have traveled all over the world and worked on many shows. I have worked with amazing people. Now that I have the dotters, I took a full time job at a wonderful university and I teach students what I have learned working in professional theatre. I still freelance as a professional stage manager too. Currently, I have 3 projects in the works; a new full length Peter Pan ballet, I am directing a production of Annie, and I am an associate producer on a new musical that is being done for the first time Christmas of 2011.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all things vintage and interesting. I am a lifelong collector. I use a lot of my finds in crafts that I make...more on that below. I love old colorful dishes as you can see from my shelves in the kitchen. And yes, I do use a lot of these dishes. I also have a booth at an antiques mall. A good day for me is a few estate sales with a good thrift store thrown in and lunch with my antiquing buds. I am thrilled that my oldest dotter loves those things too. She has been tagging along quite a bit lately.
I live in Utah, which is a gorgeous state. I love the outdoors and I love waking up to our beautiful mountains. Right now we are freezing our butts off, but I still love it here. I found some new friends during the the last OWOH event and hope to find a few more. Okay, enough about me, So on to my giveaways......
Okay, so I love to craft and create, I also love vintage, estate sales, thrift stores, and I try to combine my two passions. I sell my wares at shows, a few boutiques in town and word of mouth. Alas, I do not have an etsy store. :) This is what I have made and sold lately. These vintage inspired yarn wreaths. They are so cute, and I incorporate all things that I love, especially birds. This wreath features lots of vintage flair with a sweet message, "our nest" It has 3 birds in honor of my 3 dotters. The wreath is white, pink and green, colors I love.
I also make crowns, which I sell quite a few of. This is an example of a birthday crown I have made. This will not be the one I send you (it is sold) but I will email you and make a custom one. Again, they are one of a kind and vintage inspired.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to take a peek at your blogs as well.
