home show dreamin'

here i am at 1:08am with insomnia. i have this problem where the minute i lay my head on the pillow, no matter how tired i am, every thought imaginable comes into my mind. i worry about stupid things or i don't know, whatever. tonight when i laid down, exhausted by the way, my eyes popped wide open and i began to have thoughts of grandeur. i have wanted to have a home show of sorts at my house for a few years now. i got this great thought after seeing an article in a magazine of a lady who has shows a couple of times a year in her very cool barn. so i've been holding out for a very cool barn. not going to happen anytime soon. i do, however, have a pretty cool yard. so my little brain starts thinking 1,000 miles per minute about how great this could be. i start envisioning...booths, handcrafted, cool products...who could i handpick to be involved? what kind of advertising should i do? mady and her cheer buddies could have a killer bake sale/raffle for a fund raiser (heaven knows that we need funds for cheer!), maybe we could make a quilt to raffle or janet, a fellow cheer mom who also owns a very cool store named 'busy biddy' in orem, might be willing to donate something. where would they set up their little bake sale? out front in the drive, at the side of the house where people would have to walk by them to come into the fabulously fallishly decorated back yard? should we do it in september, and if so, what part of september? how many booths should we have and where would we place them? would it be okay to have a few in the way back by the deer pen or would they feel left out back there? would people actually come to this great event? what would i advertise it as...a craft fair, no...a boutique, no...an artisans fair, kind of like that one. wouldn't it be so fun to have a huge bonfire weenie roast with all of the vendors and families after everyone was done taking down their booths? so finally i gave up and thought i would get up and put all of these fabulous ideas down on paper...then i start thinking about who i could invite to participate...kelly mccaleb is a fabulous new blog that i have found and she has so much talent! she does the beehive bazaar...what other fabulous ladies reside in utah who would participate? so then i'm online cruising around every utah blog and site that i can find. i discovered a whole new utah world, by the way. i live in an awesome state. so that is where you find me at 1:21am...online looking for awesome ladies to participate in this awesome home show that will probably seem like a wacky idea in the morning. or maybe not. stay tuned to find out. goodnight.
