Thinking 'Fall'

Last year 
we did the State Fair
Arts Show in August/ September.
It was a long 10 days....
and we were pretty 'beat up' when it was finally over...
but, after a hundred plus years...it was the last year that the Fair
would take place in Lincoln, so we felt 'compelled' to participate...
and it has proven to have been a good call...
we're still getting sales from it!

Anyway...we did the Fair at the 'last minute'...so we weren't as prepared
as we needed to be...
then we found ourselves in the middle of Art/ Craft Show Season
and trying to maintain a good 'inventory' online...
it was rather a 'mess'.

So this year...we're already 'thinking Fall'.

I've gotten a few inquiries in recent weeks,
to do shows we've never done before.
One in Texas...another here in Lincoln.

So...we need to get busy now.
I need to go through the Shop
decide what to keep...what to 'retire'...
I really need to step it up on the Art Covers...
they will be something
completely New at the Fall Shows
and I think I can develop a line 
'just for the guys'
thinking...great gifts for Christmas.

I want to do some different pendants
from years past...
so you can see...
I'm 'thinking Fall'...
now I just need to get busy, so that I don't
turn around and find that it's already upon me..
and not be prepared.

Wow, I wish I had your planning skills.

I'm intrigued to see what type of line you create for the guys for Christmas!

I am simply in awe of all you manage to accomplish...wow. It's pretty cool that you're still getting orders from the last fair-that speaks highly of your art. And I'll bet it will be a boom this year. I, too, am curious about the 'guy' items....
