I went down to the Beehive in Atlanta again and set up my display, which was so fun! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera so I can't share a photo of it with you. :( I sold a piece within 24 hours, so I'm off to a good start there.
January was a slow month in Chicago at Renegade Handmade, however. Where are you jewelry lovin' people in Chicago? Go to Renegade Handmade on W. Division St. and get shopping!!! I have also been toying with the idea of applying to the Renegade show in New York City, which would be fabulous to be a part of, not to mention doing such a cool craft show in New York (Brooklyn, specifically). Maybe a stop in Philly on the way would be in order to visit my long time friend Amy? I think so.
I got rejected from the American Artisan show here in Nashville, but that wasn't a really big surprise. I also got denied from the Decatur Arts show in Atlanta. Wah wah.
I got accepted to the Steppin' Out Blacksburg VA show in August, which is a fun show near my in-laws that I did last year so that means.... spending time with baby girl Ella and her big brother Jackson! Yay! Here's a picture of Jackson with his Tonka truck:
So that's it. I'm just trucking along, filling my website and wholesale orders, tinkering with my etsy shop and playing with side projects. I did get some much needed girlie time yesterday when I got coffee, shopping, and sushi in with Amy F, then I had a couple of drinks with Lyndi. My brain was spinning last night with all the wonderful chit chat of the day swirling in my head! Maybe I could join a sewing circle, just for the pure girl power camaraderie of it all but unfortunately I'm not really interested in needlepoint... I just need Beth Howard to sew for me and I'll sit and watch and together we'll chat. I wonder if she'll agree to that...
