My last night at Squam was spent as a vendor at the art fair. It was my first experience as a vendor and it really was the perfect first fair. It was short and sweet; only two and a half hours. I was so busy the whole time, it seemed to be over in a minute! I was nervous going into it and so happy at how well received my work was. It's a scary thing, being out there like that. I'm glad I just went for it. The people were so kind and it was lovely to chat face to face with customers. It kind of felt like a party!
I split my table between House Love and Miranda Makes. On the Miranda Makes side, I had a lot of new art prints and greeting cards for sale. I sold a ton, even running out of one design! I plan to list these in my shop in the coming months. On the House Love side, I had my portfolio of house portraits along with a few gift certificates for sale.
The weeks leading up to Squam were pretty intense. As is my typical style, I was in a bit over my head when I first committed to being a part of the fair. There were a lot of late nights and last minute preparations, but it was so worth it. I know that this is a direction I want to move in and I'm glad I got my feet wet. Or, you know, jumped into the deep end. ;)
I am finally catching up on portraits after a super productive weekend. I can't believe I'm saying this, but my House Love wait list is full through the end of the year! I will be making a limited number of gift certificates available in my shop in time for holiday gifts, so watch for that if you're interested. If you'd like to add yourself to the 2014 list, please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
And today being the 29th of September, it would be remiss if I didn't say happy, happy birthday to my very dear friend, Kimmie! I cannot wait for her visit in a couple weeks. Hooray!
Wishing you all a perfectly ordinary, beautifully uneventful week!
