Last week we received a very festive gift from Robin Beam, one of our wonderful supporters at Ranger...she put a necklace together using our felt beads, felt flowers and charms, adding beads, sequins, and a few other special trinkets! Tim Holtz is teaching the construction style in his classes...We are as usual very grateful for her time and vision!
I have been trying to get to this task for some time now...It seems like so many things have been crunched into the last couple of weeks. The garden tour seems like it was ages ago. It was a beautiful day, with lots of folks coming through and enjoying all of our work. I was gratifying to share our labor with others who are interested in plants, dirt, trees, rocks, water...speaking of water, our baby fish are very fun to watch!! We put the scary babies together for the tour...power in numbers! They continue to bask in the sun together...
We went to NYC for the Licensing Show. We took some classes...licensing 101, using technology: website, blogging etc, licensing artwork...There was quite a difference between sitting in the classes and walking the floor with the Michelin Man, Nickie Hilton...huge sections for Warner Brothers, Disney etc and a good sized area of individuals trying to sell their work. We had fun cruising bead, trim, and fabric stores..looking for "trends" in color, style, texture... New York is a bit chaotic for country girls, but we had a great time and will attempt to apply some of our newly found information to Artgirlz Nation this summer!
