I received some wonderful news last night...

Hello all,

I am just not keeping up with this blog the way I need to, as my last post we were going to find out who are new president is, and now we not only know, but he is already appointing key people and getting ready to redecorate the White House. Well, I try to stay away from politics, but I did not vote for him, but I really hope he does a good job, so we shall see.

Well, with that out of the way, I found out that I was juried into the Ft. Worth Main St. Art Festival in April 2009. I scored enough points to be in the emerging artist category, as I have never done a street festival like this, so this is going to be a new experience for me. They are allowing me to display my dolls and purses. My challenge now is to have enough new items made to fill the booth plus some. I am right now working on making a couple different tiers of dolls, i.e. lower priced to my high-end pin-up girls. I am really going to be pushing my ability to design my own patterns and such instead of modifying other's ideas. I mean I love the way Mary T's body patterns go together, but if I am ever going to have my true voice I need to have my own look and my own patterns. I am so excited, but right now four months seems like a long time, but it is going to get here sooner than one might think and I sure don't need to be making 50 purses a week before the show, don't think that would work.

If you are interested here is the link for the show: http://mainstreetartsfest.org/

It is four days of art, music, and food. Now that is a good combination! Well, that is my ramble for today. I need to get some pictures done of what I am working on now and get better at writing my blog, as I think once a month is a bit long to go in between writing. Till next time...
