sorry for taking so long to write back. i started getting sick on friday and just was too worn out at night to do email. i actually am still feeling lousy but i have so much email to do. i introduced myself to lisa. she is lovely, just like you said. altho i did poorly at the show, i didn't leave my booth much cos we're always afraid we'll miss that "one great sale." i don't know how lisa did, but many jewelers weren't happy. i asked those that i know and i may have found one who was reasonably happy.
i volunteered for the gallery crawl right outside facere. i wanted to be sure to get to see it so this was my insurance!! there is so much happening i don't know how i'll decide. those coordinators--i don't know how they do it. they must not have to work at all because this seems like a full time job for a very long time.
i'm excited to go to snag but at the same time scared, as i have to leave for my biggest and most important show 2 days after i get home. the timing was very bad for me this year. but i think i say the same thing every year!
not sure what you meant by "Clayton was tough, really, keep trying. we can talk more about that later." did you get accepted/rejected from the show?
anyway, going to make a cup of tea now. maybe it will help the sinuses!!
spent the whole day at city museum. forgot about the gardens till i got back. darn. but my daughter would most likely have protested after spending yesterday at the botanical gardens. setting up for laumeier tomorrow and starting the show at 6pm. i guess i didn't do a good job of fitting in a call/visit. i keep trying to get into the clayton show in sept. i know i'll do it some day. laumeier is a little easier to get accepted. if you can fit in a visit to the show, i'll be there!! thx peg. anne
i think you live in StL. i'm actually here right now. headed to the botanical gardens and climatron tomorrow, city museum thurs, and then setting up for laumeier on fri and then doing the show for the whole weekend. then hurrying back to vt. have to get a lot of work made b4 heading to snag conf end of month. will you be there? i'm running for treasurer!! i'm excited about it. when i return i leave in 2 days for the road so i'll have to have virtually everything done b4 returning.
Lisa is very cool. I have asked Brigitte about an exhibition on Crafthaus for jewellery featuring iron, preferably recycled iron. If it is on, I would love to have some input on the curating from you both.
