Looks like I'm going to be doing some traveling! I got accepted into the Renegade Brooklyn craft fair. This is really my first time traveling for a show. I did Renegade in San Francisco last year, which technically counts as traveling, but we drove. This is actually on a plane traveling. Can't wait to meet a whole new group of creative folks on the east coast. My in-laws live in New York and said I could stay with them. But, honestly, I'd love to just kick it by myself. I NEVER get to get away anymore since my son was born (I'm not really complaining because he's terrific, but still!) So I'm hoping to turn this into a little weekend for myself. I've already had two people offer up their apartments in Brooklyn because they won't be there. It all seems like a dream.It's been a week of good news. I also was accepted into Unique Los Angeles. I did their first show in December and it was seriously AWESOME!!! Great group of buyers and sellers. I'm really excited to do this show again. If you live in LA you really need to "pen it in". It's a great show, have I mentioned this yet? And, just a little cattiness.... I ran into my old boss (un-named clothing company and I was the assistant designer) at the last show. It was sort of gratifying to see that we were both selling at the same show. It made me feel as though I had "made" it. I know I shouldn't care about such stuff as that, but sometimes I'm a little competitive. Not to mention, he was a mess to work for. Nice guy now though.Ok, and then I also am doing my first wholesale show. HOLY (*@!%), I'm so nervous. Wholesale shows are crazy expensive! But, I really need to take this to the next level if I want to continue making jewelry as my career. In this frugal economy retail is not going to support me. So, if anyone here has a boutique that they are looking to stock, I'll see you at the Calfornia Gift Show.
Here's some little experiment I've been working on with my camera. I just love the colors. I want to play with using photoshop on my pics and making them more interesting. I haven't had the time to play lately, but with all these shows coming up, can you blame me?
And I had to throw in this final picture of my little one. I asked him what his sad face was, and this was it. I love it:)
oh, I almost forgot. Here is a custom order I just finished up. I think I'm going to add something like this to my shop. Seems like people really enjoy jewelry that can be customize.
I call this "A beautiful mess". Such chaos:)
Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!!!
This might be my longest post ever:) If you made it this far, thank you.
