Dare to Dream: My Journey To The Country Living Fair

Updated: May 13

Dare to Dream - Advert for the Country Living Fair, London

Hey there, lovely readers dare to dream! I've got some exciting news to share with you all. Remember back in January when I took a leap and applied to exhibit at the Country Living Fair? Well, guess what? I got accepted! Yes, you heard that right—I'll be showcasing my work at one of their fabulous fairs, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

But before I dive into the details, let me take you back a bit and share my backstory with you.

Once Upon a time ....

It all started a decade ago when I attended the Country Living Spring Fair in London. At that time, my family and I were preparing to leave London and start a new chapter in Wales. Stepping into the fair felt like coming home—I was surrounded by stunning, unique treasures, and in that moment, I made a promise to myself. I vowed that someday, somehow, I would be a part of this incredible community.

Fast forward a few years, and the desire to be a part of the Country Living Fair was reignited when I stumbled upon an advert for the Country Living Christmas Fair in the magazine. I pinned that advert to my studio mood board, fueling my dreams each day with the hope of one day being there.

New Year, New Beginnings

Then came January of this year, and with the new year came new goals. Attending the Country Living Christmas Fair was at the top of my list, so I took a chance and applied. I hit send on that application and honestly, promptly forgot about it. Imagine my surprise when I received an acceptance email in March!

Since then, it's been a whirlwind of excitement and nerves. Preparing for the fair has been no small feat—the expense of the stand alone is daunting, not to mention stocking up on inventory. But despite the challenges, I'm filled with a sense of anticipation for what's to come.

I've been pouring my heart and soul into this endeavor, working tirelessly to ensure everything is perfect for what could be the biggest event of my career. And guess what? I'll be sharing every step of this journey with you all over the next few weeks—new paintings, new merchandise, and so much more! Check out my store for details!

Dare to Dream

So, here's my message to you all: Dare to dream. Believe in yourself, even when the road ahead seems daunting. Challenges are just opportunities in disguise, and with hard work and a sprinkle of self-belief, anything is possible.

Stay tuned, because this is just the beginning of an incredible adventure, and I'm so grateful to have you all along for the ride!

This will probably be how you'll see me for the next 5 or so weeks!
