so here is how my displays looked, all set up...
and here i am, in the booth with my little helpers.
and here are some of my lovely customers (with others waiting to come in!)
it was a fantastic time! i met so many wonderful people, got some amazing feedback, learned SO much about doing shows, and made more than enough money to justify the trip and cover all costs. all in all, it was just perfect!
i at first had all of these big visions of selling everything and making tons of money. and then i had a great realization. i realized that i didn't want to sell everything and make a ton of money. because, you see, i have worked so so so very much in the last month, to get ready for this show. and i do not want to work that much in the next few weeks. i don't think i have told you that the family and i are taking an enormous road trip in about two weeks and will be gone for a month! we are driving from colorado to new jersey and back again, with all kinds of fabulous stops along the way. (more on that later) one week after we get back, i have my next show, the carbondale mountain fair. so, i do not want to spend the time i have up until we leave and the one week i have when we get back in my shop for every minute of every day. i want to spend it with my family, hiking and swimming and enjoying the summer.
so now i am all set. the gallery will be fully stocked for the time that i am gone and i will just need to do a bit of work between now and the carbondale show. yay!
we did have some time to explore the beauty of moab. we went to arches national park and it was spectacular! here are some photos:
i just want to say thank you one more time for all of your amazing support! you ladies are so great! i will be listing some of the pieces that did not sell in moab tomorrow!
