Time to catch my breath!
After a crazy start of the year things are finally settling down here! I've has such a crazy couple of months! So many things have happened but now, finally, things are a little more quiet, not too quiet, we wouldn't want that! But just a little, just enough for me to catch my breath.
I feel like the year has just started and all of a sudden it's summer, it's hot and humid but my new basement studio is nice and cool and we have a pool now! After my work day I can take a nice relaxing swim and float around on my airbed with a good book, I feel very spoiled!
So what else has been happening these past couple of weeks? well on June 20-21 we were in Ottawa for the New Art Festival, with a little rain and tons of other festivals going on in the city it wasn't too too busy but we still had a good turnout. It was a great weekend filled with awesome people and amazing art! I was very happy with my new booth and n particular my new vignette display! (see pics, it's on the left side of my booth).
From July 1-4 I was in City Park in lovely Kingston for Artfest Kingston. This was the first time I did a festival by myself and I have to say it's hard work! You make long, long days, coming in at 7am to set up, then work the fair until it closes at 6pm and then you still have to take the stuff that you don't want to leave overnight and take it to your car again. Yes, those were long, long days but I had so much fun! I met some amazing people and I got to spend some time in lovely Kingston, which is stunning!
Again I was very happy with my booth, this was the first time I had brought my pillows and scarves to an event like this and they were a huge hit! The pillows are so soft and cuddly, I kept enticing people to touch them!
My next fair is not until September so I'm going to have a little time to relax and get ready for the Queen West Art Crawl! I'm super excited to be taking my work to Toronto again! But before that time I'm going to have to finish a commission piece and start planning some new compositions. I want to get back to the studio and paint! Oh I have so, so many plans!
Now that things have quieted down I'm sure I'll have more time to write regular posts again so keep an eye on this page for the latest updates!
