Glitterfest Fall~Oct 10, 2015

What a show! I had such a blast this round! My day started at 5:30 am with a drive-thru at McDonald's for a breakfast on the go. Upon arrival I quickly started to unload and then set-up my space. I always seem to bring so much stuff, not sure that I'll be able to display it all properly, but in the end, it always works out wonderfully.This is always a good show for me that I am blessed to be a part of twice a year. Sheryl and Dianne and their team work tirelessly to bring this event together, and it shows. My customers are some of the nicest people that I truly enjoy seeing along with making new friends, and of course, selling my wares! This was the first time that I came home with an empty box, I sold enough goodies this time that I had more space in the van! How about that! Now, back to the drawing board to create some new artful goodness for the next show in the Spring, on February 27th, 2016.

Glitterfest - Spring 2015

Glitterfest Spring 2015 was such a Blast! I always enjoy vending at this Awesome event twice a year and look at it not only as a venue and opportunity to sell my art, but as a Reunion of sorts! Of course all of us artists stay connected via FB, Instagram, Twitter, etc., but there's nothing like seeing each other In Person! I always enjoy this part of the day the MOST! Also Fun, is seeing my longtime and childhood friends drop by to offer their support and Friendship~this Always makes my Day! My return customers are the Best, and I always love to talk with them about the goodies they have purchased over the years! Thank you All for making this day a Great Experience and I look forward to seeing you all in the Fall for the October Show!

I'm Published!

I finally did it Gang! I took the time and got myself organized and stayed focused enough to actually see this task through, and it paid off! My Tiki-Cocktail Necklace is published for all to see in this months Jewelry Affair! I'm so Over the Moon about this, I should of done it much sooner. I've been told for years by family, friends, customers, peers, fellow artists, my kid, that I should submit my work to be published. I always made excuses: "I don't have anything worthy yet", or: "I don't have the time", "my stuff isn't their style", "they hold onto your stuff for so long, will I ever get it back?". And on, and on until all that was left to do is get off the Excuse Train to Nowhere and DO IT! I'm so glad that I did, the feeling is pure joy, to say the least! I finally reached a level in my jewelry making that satisfied me skill-wise. I'm always lucky enough to have loads of ideas, some good, some different, but the skill level had to be there for me to take this step. Timing is everything and here I am! I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported me and my art through the years, you all have given me the drive to keep learning and perfecting my skills and fuel my creativity. Once the wheels start turning there's no slowing them down or turning back; it's full steam ahead! (I don't know where all of the train references are coming from, must be channeling my Dad!) Now all I can think about is trying to get another piece or two in print. I need to get back out into the shop and finish up on some new ideas I've been working on lately, peacock feathers under glass are a project of mine these days and I'm back at soldering Dem bones! Stay tuned, and who knows, you may see me in print again!
