I was out dogwalking at the crack of dawn the other day when it was so nice and quiet and still, a time when you can think! I dont know why but I started thinking about when I was little and loved to play "store" in my room at home. I had a white bookshelf that was long and low to the ground so it looked like store bookshelves. I would empty it, drag it into my closet and put things on it to sell to my brothers (they mostly just harrassed me :)) or my friends in the neighborhood.
I loved that feeling of selling my things, getting paid and giving back money (monopoly money). I guess that's why I love my Etsy shop and doing art shows. I can decorate my booth any way I want and its my little store. Its just so much fun.
I was also thinking how much fun it would be to have my own store (a real store). To be able to decorate it with twinkling fairy lites and all of my artwork and lots of other merchandise with my art on it. I would have a big "fairy" tree in the middle of the store that I could decorate from season to season. I would love to have a corner for milk and cookies and hot chocolate and another for art classes for little girls to learn how to draw fairies! I would always play fun and inspirational music that makes you feel good and the whole store would be filled with enchantment!
What is your childhood dream? What did you like doing when you were a kid? Are you doing it now? Hope so :)
