First off, let me say, "Thank You" for all the well wishes for my show today that I have received. I really appreciate it and the show went very well. I had some new customers and repeat buyers alike purchase my work. That made me feel great.
Thank you to all of you wonderful folks!
Now the Not So Great
After waiting and waiting and waiting. Septemberfest's letter arrived today, and I didn't get into the show. I am on a waiting list, but that isn't something that can be counted on at this point.
Once I got home and checked my e-mail this evening, I got the notification from the second show. I didn't get accepted into that one either.
WOW, a double whammy. One show rejected me late while the other one did it early to create the perfect storm of OUCH.
Now its time to pick myself back up and keep moving forward which I am doing. It's just a little tough to be rejected by both shows nearly simultaneously. Now I'm focusing back onto my work, new designs and creations since I don't have a production schedule to keep any longer.
There are some shows in the late fall that I'll be looking into and more will be coming about those as they develop.
There is a glass sculpting class coming up in July that I'm looking forward to. It's being taught by Ken Herman whom I saw demonstrate his craft a few weeks back. Click HERE for the blog entry about his work.
That will be really cool.
Thanks for all of your support and interest.
