Just to catch you up.

  I am having a hard time keeping up with my blog. I stay so busy with all the other aspects of running my own business that I forget to post on here.
Just to catch you all up though...

  I had 8 shows in 17 days at the beginning of May.
It all started with First Thursday in beautiful downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas. I got everything set up and then it rained! But, that worked out in my favor because it gave me time to spend with my brother and a few friends. 

  From there I headed north and east to Springfield, Missouri for Artsfest on Walnut St. I was extremely honored to get into this show! It's a big deal for people that live in Springfield. I think this was the 30-some odd year for it. The weather was lovely, the crowd was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed my showing here.

  A week later I found myself in downtown Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The weather wasn't so great for this show but it was fun nonetheless. I was set up right in front of DeVito's Restaurant which happens to belong to my aunt and uncle! Yummy food, good family time and a chance to see some long lost friends.
This was a busy weekend because I decided to double book myself! That's right a two day show ending at 5:00 on Saturday and then booking it up the street for the Reunion Show at Crescent Moon Beads at 6:00. Thank goodness my Mom volunteered to help me for a couple of shows. Her helping hand came in very handy! The show at CMB was so much fun. For those of you that don't know, this is where my beading obsession got kicked into high gear!

  After that I had a few days of rest and a little bit of extra time to prepare for two fashion shows and a street party. Rock the Runway for Education was Thursday evening, Ozark Couture was Friday evening and then the Block St. Party was on Sunday.
The lovely Esque models wearing their earrings.
Tassel earrings designed for exclusively for Esque, used in Rock the Runway for Education.
Block St. Party - huge success!
  I spent two and half weeks away from home! Whoa, it was a long time but at least I got to spend it all in Arkansas!

  Now, I am preparing for a HUGE presentation that I am giving to a group of women in Heber Springs in a couple of weeks. I am preparing for a one hour presentation followed by Q & A and a small showing of my work for sale. After that Matt and I are taking a week long vacation to North Carolina. I have also booked a show during this trip... it's always nice to test out the waters in other states.

  Back to presentation writing! Oh, and I am starting a new "job." I was hired to be a class instructor at Michael's Art and Craft store. I am going to go get some hours in on planning my new class schedule and making samples for the class.
