Exhausted from excitement, not sleeping and lots of butterflies
Today was my very first art sale ever.
After making art for the past year I finally got round (and found the courage)
to take my stuff to a little sale to try and sell some.
To be honest, I didn't really know if anything would go, not because I don't think my art is good enough, but because it was at a ladies coffee morning rather than a pure art sale and you never quite know what will sell.
Well the great news is,
(doing a very happy dance)
Oh I cannot begin to say how good it feels to sell something that I have spent time and care making to an actual person standing in front of me.
The best thing about today was some of the lovely feedback that I received about my art. It was almost as lovely as the super comments that you lovelies send me here. Feedback, both positive and negative, is a wonderful thing. It really shapes where I take my art.
I'll show you a couple of pictures of my stall,
It's the first time that I have ever set up a table, it was ok, but I learned lots of things for next time.
This was actually a great 'test run' for me.
I'm going to spend 10 minutes tonight making a few notes about what I need to do this properly.
I've got 'the bug' now.
I had prints (the ones in my Etsy shop), canvas's, cards, tote bags...
the cards with the original art on where the bestsellers.
So after all the excitement of today, and hopefully a good nights sleep tonight, tomorrow I'm meeting a friend of mine to discuss filming some tutorials so that I can start offering online classes. He's a professional photographer so it won't be me and my less than wonderful filming abilities. hee hee, I'll keep those for YouTube.
I'll keep you up to date with info as soon as things are in place but I'm really excited about this possibility.
Ooh things are happening...
I even managed to fit in a journal page yesterday whilst I was looking after my little miss.
(she was feeling poorly all day)
We were watching Princess and the Frog, does it show in my page?
It's still not finished, but it's ready to journal in now.
I cut the frog from a magazine, he just seemed 'right' for the page.
Perhaps I'll journal in there tonight.
(that's if I can keep my eyes open)
It feels good,
I'm a happy bunny tonight.
