Yesterday Patrick and I had our first day of showing our art at the Roanoke Farmer's Market! All of the vendors were saying that it was a slow day. Patrick made a sale so we called it a success for our first day! We got a lot of nice feedback. The woman who made a purchase had such a wonderful spirit about her and she commented on the spirit of Patrick's assemblages. To me, that made yesterday perfect! It IS the Spirit of the thing for both of us.
We still have a lot of changes to make to our booth. We sort of just made some things work for us. I haven't yet figured out how to hang or display canvas board so my paintings were all on the ground and kept blowing over. If I don't figure something out, I'll have to stop using canvas board and move on to wrapped canvas which will be easier to hang.
If anyone has any ideas on this, I'd be happy to hear them.
We met another artist yesterday, too. She's a fibre artist and was just looking around yesterday but she often sells there, too. She had a lot of awesome feedback for us and some suggestions. We really appreciated her.
Today we meet with the minister who will marry us. I can't believe it's coming up so soon!
We have been moving forward in all areas for the past couple of weeks. We've had a lot of time to think and plan and now we feel it's time for action. It feels really good!
I'm going to be stepping up SoulCollage, too. I still feel it is important work and MY work. I need to calm the butterflies and go for it. :)
I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
