Here I Go!

I sent out my first show application of the year today! I had to do some major preparation because I have never done this type of show before. I needed a photo of my booth, however, I've never had to set one up for the previous shows that I've done.

Soooo, I turned the dining room into my jewelry booth! Complete with my new glass cases, neck pads and earring displays.

The booth looks pretty good for a mock-up, but will definitely need more additions and alterations by the time of the show. I'm hoping this is good for the judges.


For the application, I also had to include a picture of myself working in the studio. This is to prove that all of the work is handmade by me. This is me "at work". :)

Besides getting the application in, I got a list together of all the other shows I'm going to apply for this year. I'm hoping to do 6- if I get accepted. This will be a big challenge for me while working a full time job, but I think I'm up for it!

I also got all of my tax info together! I can't believe how much I've done this week. I'm usually a last minute kind of girl, but I'm having fun being on the ball.

Tomorrow, I'll be photographing some materials so I can finish my application for the 30 minute earrings book. That's an exciting step that I'm looking forward to completing. I don't know if I'll get accepted, but I'm so glad that I'm ready to put more effort into promoting my work!

Wish me luck!

I'll be ordering another folding table, and by May will have much more to show. I have a feeling the booth thing will be a constantly evolving project.

I noticed your exhaust set-up and I've been meaning to upgrade mine for oh, eight years now! I am just finally starting to do the research - I wonder if I could ask your advice about it? If you don't mind sharing can you please email me at: margauxlange@gmail.com

Thanks!
