A busy week in my little art world.

So, last post, I wrote that I made 2 art submissions. I got into a store for one of them and the other, I was accepted to be an artist in RAW Minneapolis. Yay! I believe I will be showing my work at the April show. (to be confirmed) Still, YAY!

Positive vibes! On Sunday, a rather dreadful day overall, I realized I sold a painting. One of my 8×8 coffee paintings. As much as it makes me super happy to be lucky enough to be selling, I have a tinge of sadness, since part of my heart goes with all my work. I know it will come back to me in some way, and someone will love it, I am just silly sentimental at times.

Today I went to Wunderkammer, the shop that will be carrying my jewelry and handspun yarn. I am super excited to be sharing a great assortment from me, I cant wait to see how it sells! She chose 5 skeins of yarn, all of which are my favorite. Its always fun to see someone examine your work for the first time, to see what they see, the combos they put together.

So the lesson learned in the last 5 days. I have to get my butt in gear and make more things. ALL THE THINGS! Especially if I have a show in April and plan on doing the St Paul Art Crawl as well! I got paintings to do, yarn to spin, and jewelry to make, because my stock is almost ZERO. Anyone got a couple extra months to spare?

I have great news!

I made 2 art submissions this week. A real nail biter if you ask me. When it comes to my product, I am very confident in my work, but the actual submission, the selling of me I am terrified of. When someone comes to my booth or table, hey look around, if you like it, you’ll buy it, its cool. But if I need to explain why my stuff will rock your socks off, oh my.. I become a stammering fool. Palms sweaty and all!

Well I made a big leap this week. I actually made 2 submissions, not one but 2! One is for an art show that I really hope I can get into, and the other is for selling my stuff in a shop! A REAL STORE! I went in, and chatted, went home and submitted! She replied that she wants to carry both my yarn and my jewelry in her shop. Ohmigod. WOOOO! My energy level is thru the roof. I have so much to do to get ready. I have to still make tags for my yarn and sift thru my jewelry, since it might be a bit of an issue if I give her anything that is from my etsy shop.

Once everything gets finalized I will post where this shoppe is. Dont want to jinx anything!

Haven’t heard back about the other show, I am hoping that goes over well. If it doesn’t, thats cool, Im still awesome.
