In my last post I lamented the fact my catalog project had come to an end and I didn’t know how I was going to fill my time. That is no longer a worry. On Monday I was notified that I had been accepted into a show in Des Moines, IA. The show is one I’d applied for in the past and been rejected so I wasn’t expecting to get in this year. They only take 100 artists and the jewelry section is quite competitive. Guess the new photos I had taken this past spring were worth the money!
I had taken inventory a couple of weeks ago and knew I had several holes to fill, but planning for this show means I need to have a lot of inventory. I like to think positive, you know. The good news is that Des Moines is a great market and this is a well-promoted show. The bad news is that my sister won’t be around to help. She and Blair are going to Las Vegas that same weekend for a conference. How selfish of them! The other good news is that we’ll still get to see the world’s most adorable little girls and we’ll have a place to stay for free. On top of that, Ralph said she expects us to help ourselves to any food and alcohol (nick perk!).
So I guess I’d better stop wasting time on this blog post and get my butt into the studio. Have a great weekend, everyone!
