the art show



The art show was this past Sunday.
















It was a long, exhausting day. I made mistakes and forgot things and broke one of my displays. There were (minor) injuries and weather was less than ideal (steaminess alternating with rain). But it was a good experience and I had some sales. I'll do a few things differently next time with my displays, but all in all, I love the way that everything turned out.




I could not have done it without the help of my crew*. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys really are the greatest. And thank you, also, to my customers. I hope you enjoy your items!

It's hard to believe that it's already September. Today really feels like fall, Cleveland fall. The cool, dreary, damp sort of weather that makes you want to stay cuddled up inside with blankets. And that's ok because I have indoor plans and projects for the coming days, including a shop update and a giveaway. Stay tuned.



*Special thanks to Stefan Minnig for taking the photos in this post.

  2. congrats! The first is always the hardest. Before you know it, you'll be popping the tent up and down by yourself, working with a master "show" checklist, and fitting an amazing amount of things (product, dosplaus, signs, etc..) in you car! ONward!

  8. Wow this all looks amazing!!!! You should sell your services to other artists who don't know the ins and outs of setting up in such a visually stunning way!
