Happy Friday everyone, I hope everyone is going to have a fun- filled weekend!! I have been busy here in the studio getting ready for my upcoming tradeshow in Atlanta on January 6, 2010. This is the big gift and homefurnishing tradeshow that happens twice a year. Many manufacturers have their permanant showrooms at the Mart and its a great place to have quality face time with some of my clients and potential clients. I will be in the all new Art Licensing section with some of my favorite peeps like Miss Carol Eldridge,BJ Lantz and Two Town Studios.
This show comes right after New Years so I am going to be flat out during the Holidays this year.. I hope my kids can forgive me, especially since my second show in June in Vegas will mean I will miss my little guy's Kindergarten graduation. Also next year's Quilt Market falls on Halloween and I will be there for that, I guess I am not going to get the best Mommy award next year!! Oh well its the nature of the beast I guess and they are lucky enough to see me more than most parents since I work from home and can give them lots of hugs and kisses!
I am also working on some new and exciting Christmas ornaments to put up in my shop after the weekend so stayed tuned for that as well.. I had meant to do it last week but since my 6yr old was sick all weekend with high fevers and my husband was away, I was flat out and could not do anything. It turns out my little guy ended up with strep throat which in the days of Swine Flu was a blessing according to my fabulous pediatrician Dr. Mark Vonnegut, and yes he is the son of the famous Kurt Vonnegut! He is an amazing doctor, the old-fashioned kind that comes to the hospital when you have your babies everyday you are there, such a sweet nature about him its hard to describe, infact my kids love going to his office and seeing him!
So thats it folks for this week, like I said I will be posting my ornaments next week so until then, have a happy, safe and fun weekend!!
