Thank you Ithaca!

I had such a wonderful time at my booksigning at Amuse in Ithaca last Friday! It was a great crowd, we had some some sunshine and only a teeny tiny bit of rain at the end, and I got to wear my new dress that has pockets! (I LOVE dresses with pockets, btw).

Being such a natural introvert, I've been quite nervous about how I would handle these social types of events. I actually think I'm getting the hang of it though. I guess when I'm promoting or talking about something that I love and put so much heart into, it's much easier than I thought to go on and on and on about it. :)

For now, that is my last scheduled event for the summer. I might try to coordinate one or two more in the area, but my event schedule is mostly free now until Apple Fest in late September. I'm really looking forward to a bit of a break. I usually do a lot more craft shows, but because of how busy I was preparing for everything to do with my coloring book, I scaled back a bit on the fairs. I love summertime so much, so I'm really looking forward to being able to soak up those hot lazy days to come.

A Busy November!

Whew! Is it already almost Thanksgiving?? This month is seriously flying by. I've been pretty busy with craft shows, freelance work and prepping for the upcoming holiday shopping season!  So far, I've been to three craft shows already, and will head to one more this weekend. That will be 4 in one month! It's really hard to avoid being super busy at this time of year though. I keep reminding myself that come January, I'll be so bored once the rush is over. I complain when I'm busy, but I get depressed when I don't have much to do. That's what happened in the long, slow winter of last year once the Valentine's Day rush ended. I really shouldn't complain now anyways though, because I am doing what I love and my business is growing. We can sleep when we're dead! Just kidding. Naps feel so good. Anyways, here are some snippets of the shows I did already this month. First was Mayday! Underground in Rochester, NY. Then I did the Awesome Indie Art Market in Ithaca, NY. And then yesterday I did The Fab Flea in Newark Valley (a cute little pop-up sale with other local artists and vendors from my area).
