Prepping for a 'show' (Phelan Gardens, Friday, Nov. 22nd, from 4-8PM) is like a small assembly line...anyone who participates in the handmade community and does craft shows will tell you exactly that. I have everything plotted out in my head. I have bought frames, and pre-cut mattes, I have edited and printed almost 200 pics, 4x6 and 5x7's. I have glued and pressed 88 cards, to add to, and fill in my inventory. Today I will finish the gluing and pressing part of the program (about 50 more cards), and move on to signing, dating, labeling and stuffing. After that, matting and framing, which is actually easier than making the cards!! There are still some 'stragglers', if you will, the second, third and fourth round of decisions. I am so pleased with how the pics have come out! I have some new pieces, mixed in w/ the stand-by's, however, I have new edits on some of the 'older' pics and they are popping, they are enhanced, they have a brighter look. It has been so good to see everything w/ a fresh eye, a Colorado eye. I am even more pleased to be back @ the drawing board! So, here's to good weather on the night of the 22nd, and a successful 'first' show in Colorado!!!
