Thought that I had fixed my booth shot problem. Apparently, not. I would like kind, gentle criticisms.   Don't need too many negatives....get enough of those from all my show rejections. I don't have…Continue

Cindi-thank you for the friend request. I was just thinking about asking you to be my friend too. We have a lot in common.Both of us are hitting the same frustrations. With the expenses of Sanders photos-and still being rejected by all the zapp shows. I do have better luck with shows that aren't zapp. Here's my email if you want to stay in touch; Ann Marie
