why I LOVE the queen bee market!



I love it, and I'm so blessed to be a part of it!
I get to see these two girls, who happen to know a thing or two about how to put on the very BEST handmade market anywhere!


"Bee"-ing a vendor for The Queen Bee Market has allowed me to work my craft deeper than ever before.
(get it? "bee-ing" as in "bee" ~giggle~ it must be getting late...)


It has pulled talents from me, I never knew I had, & makes me stretch my abilities.


It gives me the opportunity to create those designs I've had sketched out for
months & even years.


I'm fortunate I get to visit my talented online designer friends, and make new ones.
Although I'm kinda shy when I meet someone for the first couple times, unless the other person is the one doing all the talking, then I'm good ;)
Most of the time my brain almost always freezes...
"what should I say?" "uhh...um hi...again."
Seriously.
I think I just spend too much time isolated here in my studio.  
Am I the only one?  I gotta get out more ;)


AND the GOODS!!! The goods are the BEST of the best!

I cannot leave the market without a little pleated poppy
Lindsey is a sweetheart.  We did chat a bit.  But I was all
"A.D.D." that day. (it was the goods, all the amazing goods!) 
The market will do that to you. ;)


And some of my favorite girls- Whippy Cake.
Becki is a hoot! I don't have "brain bubbles" when I talk with her, go figure?
WE "ooohh and aaahhh" at each others booths- fun times.


Will I see you there?

You are so talented and your goodies are lovely! Wish I could be there to meet you too! Hopefully next year I'm able to stop by.

I SO wish I could come. It is a little too far to justify the trip. I'm hoping you might be able to come to the QBM in Utah next year, but I know that would be a big trip for you. I would love to meet you. I'm shy too so if I do get to meet you I will try to think of some good conversation topics. :)

I love some Creme de la Gems!
