So, one little twist of fate solved a lot of problems at once! Let me tell you about it.
For the past few years, my friend and I have been tabling at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. I have always struggled to find a sustainable product to sell - I just don't have the portfolio that a lot of artists have. Even worse, I didn't have any new art for the show. My friend sells jewelry and I accepted that I'm here to talk to people, hang out with my friend and enjoy the show. Then, m partner had to cancel a few weeks before the show date. "Ahhhhh! Nooooo!" I thought, especially as I only had enough inventory to fill half the table.
Hi friends and watchers, I just wanted to write a new year's message and hope you had a great holiday season filled with the people, pets and things you love! I was busy in November and December with Christmas craft sales, making Christmas cards and adding new cutting files to my Etsy shop. I guess you can't be everywhere at once! I'm looking forward to another year at the comic expo, making new entries for the Calgary Stampedes Arts & Crafts show and maybe I'll get around to doing some art for myself!
Come see my friend Nicole and I in the Artist Alley, table N10 at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo! We'll have jewelry, prints, cards, magnets, stickers and whatever else we can come up with in the next nine days :-)
Happy September! I will be super busy getting ready for the Etsy Made in Canada show on September 26. Usually my craft shows start in November, so moving production earlier took a lot of planning. If you are local, come out and say hi to me and 99 other vendors.
