What are the best things about art fairs
I love meeting people and seeing them fall in love with my work. It is so nice when they come back and tell me that what they bought is their favorite piece to wear.
Best show ever and why
Bellevue KY Art in the Park 2011... great crowd and sales and I took 3rd place in my division

Recent discussions here and on various other forums I am involved in led me to post about the Amazon Local Register in a group I am involved in Creative Bead Chat .  One of the admins asked me to do an article to be published on their website.  They also had just featured my work in their online magazine.

So I got busy and compared Square/Amazon/Paypal one of which I currently use and I'll do an update once I use the other two at shows.  Here is a link to the article if you are…


Here I Am

I have to say in the few short weeks I've been here and on some other forums I have learned so much.  And it must be working because I can't believe some of the shows I got into.  Both ODC Winterfairs.  Mellwood, Hyde Park.. 

After being waitlisted for Winterfair Cincinnati last year I decided to really work on my photos.  I read a lot of tutorials and started to use…
