Well, Here I Go Again
Here I go again. It is the new year and I am trying to start fresh. Applied to 3 big jurried shows. Scared. Excited. Am reviewing my calendar from last year to start deciding which shows I want to do again, and which I am going to drop. With Eli gone (Yes, he chose to go to Germany for his job, and so here I am, rather alone. We are going to try to keep this great relationship going long distance--I go out over my birthday next month), I have NO excuse for not putting effort into this business of mine this year!
So, once the shows are reviewed, I will be contacting the promoters to let them know I am interested this year. And then I will be trying to find some great shows to become a part of this year. Trying Horseshoe Market I think, Saturday Fairs, and a couple of others. After my experiences with larger shows, I am not sure I want to be a part of a show with over 50 vendors. Just too big and too many booths for people to really get a good look at if there are more than that.
I am proud of myself for recognizing that I am plenty good enough to play with the big kids. It took courage to even apply. GO ME!!
And with that, all I can say is: I'm Back! Let the good shows begin!
PS...I will also be promoting my first show this year--more on that to come. And teaching beginning PMC at the Light Rail Gallery Feb. 11th and March 11th . Please contact me if you are interested.
