My happy place, that magical place I go to in my mind when life has me down, is from my childhood. When I close my eyes, I go back to all of those wonderful vacations we took as a family to Table Rock Lake. in Southwestern Missouri. If you have never been there, you should go...its wonderful.
We would spend our time on the water enjoying all that the lake had to offer--boating, swimming, tubing, fishing. It was a time of family togetherness, laughter and sheer happiness. I loved it so much that when it was time to get married, it seemed only right to have the wedding at the lake :)
With this in mind, my challenge is to make something inspired by your favorite summer vacation. Whether it be a trip around the world, camping in the backyard, or going to the lake, I am challenging you to make a piece (or two) inspired by your memories from that trip. If you don't have a favorite summer vacation memory, that's ok. I'm including a few favorite pictures from my trips to the lake you can use as inspiration.
If you would like to participate, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, shop/business name (if you have one) and your blog address. Sign-ups will be open through May 15th, 2013. Our big reveal date will be June 26th, 2013. That gives you about 6 weeks to find your inspiration and create your piece(s). And if you have pictures of your vacation to share--please do!! We would love to see what exactly inspired you to create your piece(s).
A week before the reveal date, I will send out an email and/or blog post with the full list of participants so that we can each include all of the participants in our reveal. I'm looking forward to seeing what memories you share through your work!
