Work Should Always Be This Fun!

Work should always be this fun! Fortunately, I am blessed to love what I do! Owning Forget Me Not Dreams, our own website is BLAST! But another joy in my life is working with some of my fellow show owners and friends. I love working at their shows....all the fun without the responsibility that comes with running my own show! The past coupe of days I have been working on displays at one of our local craft and antique shows called Brookhaven. This is a boutique style show where all vendor products are mixed together and displayed in themed areas…similar to a gift shop. I love doing display work, especially in this mixed format. Combining vintage, handmade and painted furniture into wonderful vignettes is right up my alley! The style of this particular show is fun because the owner Lynette Covert is a master at combining colors and themes in a fresh and unique way.

The entre way is bright and inviting with a punch of Pear green added to a Paris Chic section.

This Estate Garden area was a blast to display and definitely made me anxious for spring! You can find some of these wonderful yard art pieces in our Cottage Garden section on our site.

Living in the Northwest, the beach look is always in. Turquoise takes this section from drab to fab and gives it a fun twist on the theme. Bellow is a cute yellow and blue area with tons of wonderful vintage and new textiles. So cute!

Of course my favorite is always the Cottage section. I could spend hours looking at the vintage china, handmade pillows and textile crafts. I couldn’t resist a bit of shopping before I left today….having first pick is another perk of helping display for shows!
Brookhaven opens March 12th and runs through March 16th. Here is a link to her site if any of you are close enough to stop by and shop! This certainly get’s me in the mood for my own show in the fall! Check our archives and you can see some pics from our 2007 shows. Time to start planning our fall shows for 2008…yes!

Join Me In A Toast!

For years, Country Living has been one of my favorite magazines. I especially love the issue where they honor several women entrepreneurs. As a women in business, I find their stories so inspiring. Never before have I known any of the women who were selected, until this year! Our very own Joyce Lucas of Make Mine Pink was selected as one of this years winners!

Karen and I just starting our second year with Make Mine Pink and I can tell you, hands down it is the best business decision we ever made. If you haven’t looked into it yet, you should! We have been celebrating at MMP for weeks and wanted to share our excitement with our blog readers and friends. To those of us who belong to MMP, Joyce is way more than the owner. She is a mentor, cheerleader, guidance councilor (lol) and friend. She truly wants the best for each and every one of us and goes to great lengths to help us achieve it. She embodies the spirit of fairness, and the ethics of integrity. My life and business have been forever changed because of my association with Joyce. I owe her my deep gratitude and thanks for all she does for all of us at MMP. So Joyce, we are toasting you at Forget Me Not Dreams, and invite all who know you to leave their testimonials here too! We all love you and are so happy for you! Congratulations Joyce and here’s to you!
