Oh goodness. I was close to tears after my antique magazine rack from an old barbers shop sold this morning. And shortly after that sale I was accepting payment on another favorite.... MY favorite end table i have in the store right now. many days i wake up wanting to be charity rose theilan where i play the you know what out of the violin in the most incredible sexy way ever. but today.... today i wish to be an indian giver and magically get those pieces back and into my own home. without a price tag and for me to enjoy. business is good and for that i am fortunate. but damn is it tough when i grow attached to my treasures. i thought tonight would be a calm wednesday. but now i am really considering a toddy in memory of those two pieces. because every toddy needs a good excuse. happy wednesday friends!
oh. one more thing.
the confetti crate had the ribbon cutting and grand opening yesterday. there was a wonderful turnout. and a great day, it was. thanks SO much to everyone who came by the store.
and congrats to all of the winners of the giveaways!

Art is a huge part of my life. Both making art and supporting art. This month I have had the opportunity to spend my days surrounded by artists (each defining their own art and in many different ways) I find myself with such an open mind having spent this entire month with art all around me. It's everywhere. And believe it or not, in everyone grows the title of an artist. Some with a lack of confidence, some certain they are going to take on the world.... Some giving themselves zero credit to even coming close to holding the title... some completely unaware that they, personally, are putting together a beautiful thing... a thing called art. Some competitive... and some encouraging of all things art. Period.
I opened The Confetti Crate on March first and have celebrated that birthday for the past twenty three days. As I am sure my close friends will completely agree, sleep has always been something I filed under "overrated". The festivities celebrating the birth of TCC have been non-stop. READ: If you are not wanting to hear "cheesy time" scroll down a line or two.... I feel like a proud Mom of all the artists and their hard work to make their little homes in The Confetti Crate look their best... I can't get enough of their excitement. I may or may not melt like velveeta in the microwave when they make a sale they didn't see coming at such a quick pace. They bring something in and before they even leave the store out walks some of their art and into the home of another. You guys, it's a beautiful thing. I love planning a kick arse party. I do. But I will admit, planning the birthday party for The Confetti Crate was much different than any other party I have planned..... A challenge, most definitely! But in such a funky little way. Having the chance to showcase the hard work of 17 others (and wildly growing) has been very much so difficult. But very, very much so rewarding. At the end of each day I have been able to feel a huge amount of success and give thanks to God for making this dream come true and allowing me a chance to work hard (all.day.every.day) at keeping it alive. :)
Growing up, it bothered me when someone else had the same dress or purse as me. For whatever reason, I didn't feel as special. Years later, I am the same green eyed girl. I work very hard to carry unique finds, one-of-a-kinds.... from handmade jewelry to baby items to home decor. I love the rush I get when I "shop my way" am given a request to "keep an eye out" for something.
VIA mal mag I so eagerly invite you to come take a peek at all the lovelies in the store.... it's filled with vintage finds, ART of course, and so much more.There hasn't been a single day in the life of the confetti crate that I haven't witnessed a TCC virgin come in and immediately gasp. And honestly.... i love it so. :)
