It's Halloweeeeen!

Last night my husband & I went to a costume party. It's been a while since we have been to one. Those were the days without kids. So last night Jim dressed as Survivor Man (Les Stroud in Discovery Channel) and I as Cleopatra. My son and his babysitter burned popcorn in the microwave. Thankfully, no flames, but plenty of smoke.
At the party, met a person who made me think about what I want to do with my business. I know I want to keep designing/drawing, but I also need to market myself so I can sell plenty.
My goal: to see my card designs in stores, to see my Pingquik, Tweet&Flora licensed in stuff.

Beachwood Holiday Art & Craft Show:
So in 7 days I will be selling in my first Crafts & Art Show. In Beachwood's Community Center on Fairmount Blvd. Sunday, November 7th from 10 to 5.
Items available: onesies for babies, tees for toddlers, greeting cards, thank you notes, note cards for kids & adults, calling cards, and a Catalogue to choose for personalized cards.
Much work this week...

3 product lines: Getting ready for the Beachwood Holiday Art & Craft Show.

I am getting ready with my 3 product lines: Piccos, Tweet&Flora and Pingquik.
Got together with girlfriends for lunch to brainstorm ideas & to look at my designs so we could tweak here and there.
Make a calendar! Note cards, tees, so many swirling... And logos to go along them.

The birds are pretty funny. I get ideas just by looking outside my kitchen window at the bird feeder.
All illustrations should bring a smile or a chuckle.

The SHOW will be on Sunday, November 7th 10 to 5 in Beachwood's Community/Municipal Center.
