Queeny art fair

What a weekend! I just got home from my exhibiting in my first ever art fair! You may have wondered why things were so quiet around here... Well I've been painting, building, sewing and shopping to prepare. I have to say, though I missed my internet life, it was a brilliant experience. I felt so much support and encouragement from everyone. The other artists were so helpful and went out of their way to make me feel at home and share information. I definitely will be doing this again. It was so good to get out of the studio and get feedback.

A few of the highlights...
1. I had a number in my head for financial 'exceeds expectations' and I came very close to it.
2. I won a ribbon!!! A beautiful white ribbon with "Honorable Mention" was in my booth Sunday morning. What a great way to start the day.
3. $300 in 'Art Dollars" were given out over the weekend as raffle door prizes and $150 was spent in my booth.
4. Meeting Amy Millspaugh. She felt like a long lost sister, we immediately hit it off and I managed to trade for one of her gorgeous, whimsical bowls. Also meeting Kay Foley. I didn't have much time to talk with her but I loved her work and I know we have a lot in common.

If this is your first visit to my blog and I met you at the show, Welcome! You all really shared the love and made my weekend incredible!
Here is a link to my etsy where you can find more prints and I'll be listing originals as the week goes on.
