There is a larger picture I would like to become a part of, and I had better get my skull on right if I want to jump in! I had previously mentioned The Wallkill River School and their kick-ass, up-my-alley classes. Well, the latest is they are opening up a juried artisan gallery; a haven for local arts and crafts. My good friend Janet Baskerville was the first to post this good news to me. The Grand Opening is this Saturday. I have to get my ass in gear if my works don't want to remain homeless.
12/4 ~ Well, I did well enough at the PTO show. It was a bit what I expected, but I was able to sit at my table and be Contented Artist while I colored my drawings and penned in personalized requests. My biggest fans were nine year old girls who hovered around me to watch. I'm just glad I didn't bomb. The unfortunate thing about it was the OVERWHELMING direct sales folks. I have nothing against them, but I had Pampered Chef to the right of me and Home Interiors to the left. Avon, Tupperware, Mary Kay, etc. Next time....more crafters, more advertising, more atmosphere!
