Thanks to EVERY one

Thanks to everyone that has ever posted to this sight.  I have learned so much from this site.  If I didn't ask the question, then someone else did and my answer was right in front of me.  I have come a long way from crafting to artist.  I got my confidence right here, reading about everything one needed to know to move on and move up.  Thank you to those who donated and those who donated prizes.  I was a recipient of a beautiful piece of art.  Thank you Joel!  I may not post a lot but I do…See More

Cindy Cherrington commented on Larry Berman's blog post Booth Picture Tip
"So, you get disqualified if you use an EZ Up?  Even if it is all white?  I would find putting all those bars together and raising it up yourself to be very time consuming.  OGM, I'm distraught over this."

"Joel, Welcome! I do this show off and on from year to year depending on my schedule. I've been attending this show (off and on) over 10 years. Like any show it can be good one month and not so good another month. I stick to the spring shows…"

Cindy Cherrington commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Promoting Your Work, Part I - the Business Card
"This is a great topic.  Everyone has at least one picture of the art they create on their card.  I've missed the boat.  My card is just a card with words.  I'm missing out on what looks like one of the best…"

Cindy Cherrington commented on sandhi schimmel gold's blog post Please Help my Friend...and Fellow Art Festival Artist
"How overwhelming this would be for her!  I cannot even imagine.  I was so touched and felt such sorrow that I made a small donation.  But any amount will be a help to her.  I pray for her."

"Sharon: I'm sorry to hear this happened to you (but you were luck to get your money back).  This is a good lesson for all of us.  I, too, have been lazy with getting information from customers.  I do lister for the ding on my…"

Cindy Cherrington commented on Greg Little's blog post Do I really Need to Join Facebook????
"OMG!  I'm at work reading this and I couldn't stop laughing.  My cube farm mates must be wondering what is so hysterical in my cube.  (A cube is a partitioned space where I crank out work 9 hrs a day.)  Thanks for a…"

Cindy Cherrington commented on Jennifer Ivory's blog post I may have excommunicated myself from the Bayou City shows but I go knowing I tried to help.
"The news reported this item either last night or the night before.  The headline was something like "changes in Bayou City Art Show but not everyone is happy about it".  They interviewed Susan Fowler who is adamant…"

"Wow!  That article was very interesting!  I live in Houston.  I'm new at doing art fairs.  I had no idea.  I haven't ever tried to get into Bayou City.  I usually attend, but at $15 entry fee per day and…"

"Guilty!  I've never done an art show before and not a very good writer to boot!  I did post a question once and got a good response.  I'm a newbie, trying to get my you know what together to apply to a real art show instead…"

First show ever
Only been involved in craft shows and the like around the Houston area. But wanting to get into a real art show.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
I'm not sure how I got on the mailing list. But I read the articles often. My job situation at the present allows me too much free time behind the desk, so I have a chance to read and learn.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I don't know. I'm a Capricorn and not a very "fun" person. My fun is creating my glass and experimenting with it. But doesn't everyone on this site love working with their medium and consider it fun?

Hello everyone.  I've been reading these wonderful post for a couple months now.  BTW, not only are you good artists but good writers as well! I guess I'm a part time artist.  I work in the day to support my art (and the household) and have only been able to enter local arts and crafts shows in the Houston area.  I've never applied to the large Houston art shows as really, I"m not there yet as an artist.  I haven't been able to dedicate enough time to it. 

Anyway, I'm a glass fuser. …
