Busy bees

There's been so much going on the past 2 weeks, I feel like my head might explode. I keep forgetting things, and am having trouble accessing my vocabulary. That's one of my quirks: When I'm extremely busy/nervous/hungover I cannot remember even the simplest words. I usually end up asking someone to pass me "you know, the thing" while pointing at the desired object. This should A) really help my son with his vocabulary development, and B) make me look like a total moron at my gallery opening.

Speaking of which, I'M HAVING AN ART SHOW!!! I'm really excited about this, it's my first show since I've been working as an artist on my own. I'm showing with two other wonderful ceramic artists, Stef Greener and Judith Arnaud Gary. The gallery owners, Bob and Wade, have been quite supportive and patient. It's going to be great. The show will be at Deadwood Picture Framing at 425 N. Ferro Avenue (zip: 85705). Come on down for some wine and art!

I sold work at my first art fair last weekend to benefit Handi-Dogs. I love this organization, but traffic was really slow. It was the first year, so they've promised to do a better job with marketing next year. I did have a few sales and traded some work for a couple of cute motorcycle t-shirts for Connor.

Getting Ready for my Big Debut

So, I have my first art fair and show coming up as a working artist. I haven't shown my work since college over six years ago. I'm nervous and afraid I'm going to forget something change for big bills or something. I'm going with two other female artists, Stef Greener and Judith Arnaud Gary. They've been really great in guiding me through the processes of the past few months (applying for licenses, etc.), so I don't want to look like a big idiot in front of them!

Also, I have this strange guilt about being gone at the art fair all day while David watches Connor. This is ridiculous and I know I shouldn't feel guilty about it, but I do. Just another example of how us moms are practically looking for things to feel guilty about....

My First Blog Post

This is the first time I have ever blogged. My friend Karen blogs on here all the time, providing me with much amusement. Hopefully, some readers will enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy hers. Just have to finish figuring out this whole setup......
