This Thursday, I am hosting my annual preholiday open house in my home. I set up all of my bags, ask a couple of friends to come and sell their crafts, and open my door for an hour and a half.
Every year, a few days before, I find myself wondering "am I nuts?!?!" Typically in the hour and a half, I see about 50 people go through my house. Yet every year, two days before, I begin to doubt myself. I start to wonder if anyone will actually show up. I put an unbelievable amount of pressure on myself to make the night great for each and every person there, including the other artists.

So I'm not even even going to think of the state of my 1st floor until Thursday morning, when I will do the "day of the big shindig" shuffle. And until my Thursday deadline, I will be busy trying to sew as many bags as humanly possible. Trying to make as many choices for my customers as I can. I want everyone to walk out happy that they came.

Thanks Emily Burger Designs!
I have 8 purses (a new style..yay!) that I hope to finish today, and if that isn't insane enough, I plan to make some small coin purses tomorrow. Oh, and did I mention I have a sickish kid home today? We'll see how this all goes...
