There's only one thing more disconcerting than receiving a "Thank you for applying; it was a hard decision, but, we're sorry to say..." letter from an event. At least when you get one of those you KNOW where you stand.
I just got ANOTHER of those "waiting list" letters! OY VEY! It's neither a "yes" nor a "no" and that leaves you....well, nowhere. So how does one plan? Simply put, one doesn't. BUT having been scooped off the waiting list for ACC, I'm hopeful that the One of a Kind show in Chicago (December 2012) will do the same! After all, I sent along the same pictures and text as I did to ACC....
And while I wait to hear about this waiting list, I'm also waiting for Craft Boston in the fall (another waiting list!) and whether I'm in or out for a number of OTHER shows beginning Labor Day through the end of the year.
The GOOD news: I'll be in Ann Arbor, MI in July for their HUGE four day show. A series of shows occur simultaneously and totally overrun the University's main campus. I'll be there! On State Street, booth 104....YAY
The even BETTER news is that I've got a wonderful barn finch nesting at the top of the pediment that holds up our porch roof. It's the second year the pair have graced our home. I can't wait to see the little ones! [And I can't wait until they leave and I can clean up the guano, too!] I also think a duck may be nesting in my holly near the house wall -- if not, they're just visiting my little front yard more often than ever! I'll try to get a picture.
EVERYTHING is GREENING! And that's so very wonderful. Even my tiny indoor fig tree (sent bare stemmed just 2 weeks ago) has leaves AND a tiny dwarf fig. So cute....Perhaps I'll do a bead shaped like the fig leaf; so unusual and undulating......
Keep thinking good thoughts about future shows for me.....I'll think good thoughts for everyone else!!
This blog is where Thea Fine, Beading Design meets Fine WordCrafters (my writing/editing activities). I hope you find it a happy collision of my two artful worlds.
