It's been a little while since I've mentioned much about the 'biz'. So I thought I'd let you all know about what's been happening around here.
First of all, I've teamed up with Andrea to be apart of Lucid Dream Team. Her blog is here. Our business blog has yet to be created, but I will let you know when it is up and running. While we create different artwork, we will be going in together on craft fairs and our Etsy adventure.
Speaking of Etsy, we launched our Etsy shop! I have only one item for sale as of today, but it is a start. I am so excited to get our stuff out there!
Andrea & I also had our very first art fair at Edgebrook in June. We learned the joys of setting up the tent, arranging all of our artwork and taking payments via our smartphones (that was pretty cool). It was a great way to spend my birthday and I look forward to many more.
I also had my first gallery opening at River Valley Community Church at the end of June. It was a small show featuring 4 artists, but I was so proud to be a part of it! It was really awesome to see all of my work in one place and I really felt a sense of accomplishment.
And the last bit of news is that I will be participating in the Rockford Artists' Fair on Sept. 17 & 18, 2011 here in Rockford, IL. I did apply for the Greenwich Village Art Fair, but didn't get in :(. That was a pretty big blow for me, but I moved on to plan B. I am super-duper excited to be involved and am gearing up as we speak.
Phew! That was a lot. Can't wait for all that is in store for us as we move forward in this adventure!
