On the Countdown Now!!!

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

We didn't have an Easter celebration this year, too much work to do. We have exactly one week and the shoppe will be open. I am getting really excited now, somedays I just feel of hard work but I think it is all going to be worth it in the end. I also believe this is the first ever Easter in my whole life that I didn't celebrate, feels kind of odd, but there is always next year.

I think I have all my shelving units ready to go and the clothes are in and just waiting to be priced. At least the gifts are all priced so that is huge!!! I need to get pictures and things hung on the wall too. My sign guy is coming on Tuesday so once the signs are in I can get busy and do the windows. That will be lots of fun, no idea where I am going with that yet, but it will all work out. I took lots of pics today so I will share some with you. After cropping and checking the pics out my eyes must be tired because they are not all that great but here they are. Getting the camera battery all charged up because I want to get lots of pic of opening day.

Thanks for sharing in this exciting time with me.

A few goodies heading to The Gathering Nest Gifts & Consignment shop for the mixed media artist!

Thought I would share a few pics today of all the yumminess heading to the shop for the mixed media artist. We will be carrying so many awesome goodies. Lots of vintage flowers, tidbits of yummy old lace and bits of vintage linen that we can use in are art. We are going to have tons of beautiful vintage linens and other one of a kind vintage pieces. Lots of rusty bits and vintage buttons. I am very thankful for all my wonderful art friends, we have a great community of artists in all our little groups and in blogland. I am really excited that I am going to be able to display some of the beautiful works of art that I have received over the years from trading atc's & playing in oddles of art journals. I thought it would be fun to display some of my books and atc's amongst the mixed media goodies to show everyone that enters the store what can be done with the unique little pieces we will have in the shop for mixed media. I am hoping that we will be able to bring some of our clients into the digital and mixed media world. This is going to be fun for me. Once I get the shop all setup don't be shocked if you see some of your precious works that has been sent to me through trading sitting in my displays. I treasure all of them and I am over the moon about being able to share the beauty of them with new people.
