I'm back from Grapevine (Dallas), the first show of the year. As usual, it was not a clean start out of the shoot. The Mystery of the Whimsical Inventory continues to hang like an albatross around my neck. Just WHAT was I thinking as I packed? Or had the last functioning braincell decided to take a holiday? Fortunately, I'm returning the Dallas area for the Mesquite show next weekend, so I'm regarding it as the Redemption Round to get my product to the venue.
Grapevine did have it's light moments....several of the Marcos' folks and I all needed to be at the airport PDQ, and Mary Kay volunteered to take us all in her 4-seater van, so off we went with 2 booths of boxes, and 4 peoples' luggage jammed in the back, and Marco's Karen wedged on the floor between the seats. Pics were taken, and I'll post if anyone ever sends me one.
Other exciting news is that my BFF Melinda in Spokane saw my journals, and has graciously invited me to share her display space at a couple of local galleries, so I'm making my journal pages into cards. Here's one page before it's put on the card...
It's not a card yet because I, of course, made it the wrong size, and need to re-do them next week.
I'm truly honored and flabbergasted that she would be so generous. I'm a very lucky person.
