This is going to sound like the stupidest, "shut up until you have something real to worry about" post in the world, but y'all, I looked at my calendar the other day and nearly panicked.
And yes-I-know-I'm-an-idiot thing about it is that IT'S ALL GOOD STUFF. But I'm still in low grade panic mode.
See, I applied to a bunch of shows this fall, and I got into most of them. Fabulous, right? Yes! I'm thrilled! Especially since three of them are new for me.
|(This is last year's poster - oops - but here's the info)|
|A great little show just a few miles up the road from me|
|They call this "Indiana's Nicest Day" - who could resist?|
|An indoor show, which is nice in November!|
Of all of these fabulous opportunities, the one I'm truly, utterly, speechlessly excited about is the final one shown above, the Kentuck Festival. It's in a town I lived in for fourteen years, it's a show I loved as a patron, and it's a show I've been applying to for years. Seriously, YEARS. It got to the point that everytime I'd send off my application I'd tell the kids "Mommy's just had her annual exercise in futility." So you can imagine how excited I was to get the notice of acceptance! (Actually, I scared the crap out of my poor husband, who thought something horrible had happened when I opened the email and screamed...)
So with all of this happening on top of my busiest time of year at my job, the next few months are going to be, um, interesting!
And as many exciting challenges are out there (I'm looking at you, Saturday Sequins, ArtBead Scene, etc...), once my reveal in the third part of the Bead Soup Challenge is over, I'm putting myself on a strict no-challenge diet!
