Linda, thanks for friending me.  You're still in New Orleans?  If so, maybe we can meet in person.  I would like to see your art.

If you have any tips for applying to those shows you mentioned, I would appreciate it.  You can check out my products at to see what I make.

I saw your fb page.  Love your jewelry.  So it's made out of paper?  Cool.  I liked your page too.  I will look up those shows online.  I am starting to look for stuff in the spring.
