It's amazing how something that you spend all year looking forward to can come and go in the blink of an eye. I spent many months preparing for Halloween and Vine, and in a few short glorious hours it was over. But how glorious those few hours were!
People lined up hours before the event. In fact, one of my collectors from San Diego was the FIRST in line at 5:01 am! (thanks Anne!). I was overwhelmed with the heartfelt praise and compliments I received from so many people who follow me on my blog and Facebook. It was so wonderful to finally be able to "put a face" to so many of my Facebook friends!
The first 60 minutes of the show were a blur. Honestly, the crowd in front of my table was several people deep! I consider myself so lucky to have such wonderful friends, fans and collectors - I have to keep pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. I wanted to talk at length with each and every collector that purchased one of my creations, but the chaos of the morning made it too difficult to spend some quality time with everyone. I hope next time I can chat longer with everyone.
The show was a huge success thanks to the efforts of the Ginny and Christy (the show promoters) and also to the amazing artists who I was lucky enough to join. The level of professionalism at the show is top-notch and to be surrounded by such amazing artistry and creativity is truly inspiring. I'm already ramped up and ready for Halloween and Vine 2012!
My next show is in three weeks (Oct. 15) at Glitterfest in Tustin, CA - another high quality venue. Please visit their web site at http://www.glitterfest.com. Hope to see you there!
