Well, it is officially busy season! I am spending most of my time working on things to get ready for Indie Emporium. Keeping the website updated, building hype on facebook/twitter, printing totes & tees, keeping everything organized, booking music, space planning, planning demos and make&takes, budgeting, tax forms, ordering tickets and flyers and posters, buying goodies, soliciting raffle items and giveaways, paperwork, setting up “previews” of IE at a few local spots, goodness gracious, what stress fun it all is!
I’m also working on my new line of homewares. I made a BIG investment in my business this week, and I sure hope that people like what I’m working on. I certainly can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve been working on over the summer.
In the meantime, this coming Sunday, I will be selling my artwork and prints and The Gatsby Picnic. Dress up and come see me!
Then of course on October 29&30 is Indie Emporium.
The weekend after Indie Emporium, I’ll be a vendor at The Girlie Show in OKC. The Girlie Show is my favorite show of the year, so I am thrilled to be selling there again this year!
Then, I’ll have a few weeks off, but will busily be making more goodies for The Jingle Bash in Dallas. I can’t wait for this trip! I attended the show last year, but this will be my first time selling there. Come see me Dallas friends!!
December will *hopefully* consist of my biggest show to sell at, but I won’t know for a while if I’ve been accepted. I’m also working with our friends at Ida Red, here in T-town, to set up a lil’ pre-Christmas craft show. Will update with details as they come.
Wish me luck at surviving this busy season! I probably won’t be blogging much during October, but I’ll try to check in now and again!
