Nice People

Did anyone notice that after I talked about Kathy Cano-Murillo, the Crafty Chica, when I was trying to figure out what my style was, she left me a long comment with advice on how to figure that out and how to describe it to others? How nice was that? She didn't have to do that. I don't even know how she found out I linked to her. Anyway, I loved her idea of describing my art in terms of pop culture. It's brilliant, because I'm already a pop culture junkie. So I'm going to follow her advice. I'm going to sit down and just brainstorm words, adjectives, thingies, that are in my art. Then I think I'll ask a couple friends to tell me what they see, how they would describe it. Then I'll put it all together into a Brady Bunch episode. Ha!

Oh, and about this art fair, Johnstock, that I applied to 2 weeks ago, I called this afternoon because the thing is in only a few weeks and I need to know at what speed I should be producing, and for that matter, what things to work on. Well, they said I should be getting an email either tonight or tomorrow. He should have just said tomorrow because now I'm checking my stupid email every ten minutes only to find another Meetup reminder from Twin Cities moms about Choo-Choo Bob's or an alluring (NOT) message from MyLife (formerly and just as annoying) about how 3 white males searched for my name this week. BAH!!

But tomorrow I'll know. And then I can panic anew! But in a good way. I think we have a good shot. I'm just such an impatient person. Okay, moving on.

fingers crossed on the art fair.
Big high five on the Cano-Murillo front! She sees all and knows all, didn't you realize this?

She'll probably come by your booth at the fair, so don't be glittering up everything like you usually do!
