And so it goes.


Since my last post, back in March, things have been a little bit crazy for me. In a good way. But today was my last craft show until September. So I will be able to catch up in the next month or so.

I have a lot of thinking/planning to do about my business. Where it is going and how I want to get there. It has become very clear that I need some organization. I like to think that I am on top of things, but it always feels like I am just barely on top of things. This slightest push, and the whole pile would fall right over. And then down into a chasm. Into a river, over a waterfall and out to sea.
This year has been good, but hard. I was very honored to be chosen as etsy's Featured Seller in April. However, this increase in activity has really made me recognize that I need to get it together a bit more. Especially if I want to continue growing and maintain some sanity.

Anyway, a quick parting shot of my booth. I would love to see other artist's booth shots. I always feel like I have a horrible booth shot to submit on applications. I never realized how sloppy my booth looked until I saw the photos. Would love some feedback and any insight into what jurors are looking for in a booth shot.

And a "Ding, Scratch and Dent Sale" at my studio. Because, good lord, I need to do some cleaning out!

Yes, the thinking and planning about your business is hard to do (so many choices... so little time) but will give you a lot of peace of mind once you have a clear direction and know what you need to do next. Good luck figuring that out!

This is a good article about booth photography tips, as well as some examples (although not many with ceramics): http://www.bermangraphics.com/artshows/booth-slide.htm

I've seen your work on Etsy, but just found your blog today on the Wikiclay blog list. I just wanna say I love your booth display! The shelves and folding doors is such a neat idea for an easy to set up shelving system, and I love all the hanging items. I would love to have a booth display like yours! All your lovely colors stand out really well, too.
