This is what happens when you live in South Florida and mother nature has a different idea then yours.
I was looking forward to have a beautiful time and enjoy the many visitors that would come by the booth. I was pumped, my gear ready, all the tools brushed up but it was not to be and there wasn’t anything anyone could do but let the nature do its thing.
We were ready to go when she decided to play tricks on us.
It began pouring in an instance without the possibility of parole, excuse me, laying off. We not only had to take everything down but also move quickly, since we were located near the sewer drainage and the water was coming up fast. We got flooded, as matter of fact it happened literarily everywhere in South Florida, my feet and my shoes begged the water for mercy and my nose was like “sniffle I will” but it did not matter. It just kept raining and raining, and raining all day until the evening. The good thing is that it was not a total washout, something great came out of it: new friendships and it just made my day.
A girl can only do one thing at a time. I try to spread my wings sometimes but every so often, I find myself on a multipurpose platform, trying to find my equilibrium. Yes, I can multitask but I am not extendable, I only have two hands after all, so I decided to do what works. So, for the past few weeks, I have locked myself in a cage and embraced my other passion, painting thus my intermittent absence from the blogosphere world lately. I am prepping for a show. And then you have this. No, it is not a paint or anything in particular but it could be. Perhaps, a handbag or whatever hit my brain later but for now, it is just me, in the testing mode. It is a test swab. Yes, I not only create my own fabrics but also the various colors use.
Starbucks had a contest going until May 11 and it said, “design a beautiful cup and if we like it, we may feature it in our next tumbler.” So, I did. Here are pictures of the three designs I submitted. Miracles do happen, I heard. So, good luck to me I guess. #WhiteCupContest
