Tuesday Treasure Trove

Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links.

Things of Note:

This week is mostly just doing all the million little things left to get ready for the craft show. Which, if you’re in Austin, you should totally come check out and say hi to me and keep me from retreating to an introvert huddle in the back of my booth (halfway kidding). In all seriousness, though, I’m equal parts excited and nervous, and I think it’s pretty much a given that I’m not going to get any sleep the night before the show opens. And that I will be absolutely worthless on Monday after the show is over, haha. But in between? Hoping that is awesome. And I mean, the organizers have food trucks that will deliver food to vendors in their booths, including breakfast tacos, so it’s pretty much already going to be amazing just from that.

Also, because I’m crazy, I also decided to tackle redesigning my freelance site in the midst of all this, and that went live yesterday, so you should also check that out. It’s now responsive, which means it still looks good viewed on a phone, and I love the swooshy effect when switching categories in the portfolio.

What’s something that’s made you nervous and excited lately?


  1. Lately, my nervous/excitement has come from art! I’ve been posting more of my personal drawings (aka not commissioned portraits) on my Instagram and blog, which tends to wrack me with anxiety. I love my art, but sharing it with other people is scary! However, the response has been quite positive which makes me jump for joy!

    1. Oh goodness, yes, I know what you mean. I’m still nervous every time I debut a new design for the shop, or send a concept I love off to a client.

      Also, add me to the positive vibe, because I think your portraits are great! 🙂

  2. You guys will get breakfast tacos!? That alone is reason enough to do the show. I’ve only had greasy pizza slices delivered to me at a show before, which isn’t much to get excited about. Good luck! I hope it’s a success!

    1. Right?! Kind of amazing. The two food trucks that will deliver are tacos and ice cream. My kind of setup. 🙂

      And thanks! Here’s hoping.
