A Bit Overwhelmed....OK, ALOT Overwhelmed!

As I begin my fifth year in business in a freestanding location,
I find myself "back to square one".
This meaning, I have tried some other ventures
(and I don't call them adventures because there was absolutely nothing fun about them)
And have come full circle.
I have taken all of my square footage back for my own,
Leasing no spaces to outside dealers.
Not the perfect timing for accomplishing this,
But I have found life doesn't often ask you if things are convenient.
Although I have just begun reworking the space, I have chosen to focus on my clothing
And give it the full attention I hope it deserves.
This is just the beginning,
As I have a lot more to make and create before it will be fully stocked.
The clothing rods haven't even been painted yet, although they will be.
It is just another one of those times where I am most excited to share before it's complete :)
There will also be a second rod beneath the jackets for double hanging of jackets and sweaters.
This piece is going to work out wonderful for all my handbags.

Then I have also chosen to include all of my other "creations" and art in this area.
A "just Jana" zone, if you will........(I'm smirking here)

A lot more to do, but onto a good start.

I am participating in the Dallas Flea on September 11, 2010.
I will be showing some of my Steampunk Art at the Arlington Art Museum beginning September 24th, 2010.
The Collected Treasures Main Street Antique Trade Days is October 23, 2010.
And lastly, I have been invited to participate in the Ladybug Christmas Collection Sale beginning December 2, 2010.
And that would explain being overwhelmed......
But I absolutely love it!
Thanks for stopping by today,
I always love it when you come.


  1. Stop take a deep breath.... it will be okay... best wishes on you new project and trust me one one will be looking at the unpainted rails not with all the wonderful and beautiful items you have for sale... I wish you were closer i would spend a fortune.... hugs Wendy

  2. Hi Jana,
    I love your shop and your beautiful creations.
    You have it looking wonderful.
    Also, it looks as though you are going to be busy, busy, busy....I don't know how you do it.

    I have trouble just keeping my small booth filled and my etsy shop!

    I wish you success for sure.


  3. You better install one of those revolving, forever moving doors for your shop! So many women are going to be flocking to it for your creations, they will need to get in faster! It is looking so good, Jana! Every item that I can see looks fantastic! Do you sleep?

  4. Whaaat? You've joined the steampunk craze, too? How exquisitely appropriate. :D

    Here's to busy-ness! I love you...


  5. I've been feeling over-whelmed myself so I haven't had time to visit blogs but I had to come by & give you a high five for the article I just read in Somerset Home. Congrats Jana!

  6. I can't wait to come and visit one day...I will be like a kid in a candy shop!

    Happy Day Lovely One,
