I think art shows and festivals are like getting tattoos. While you're doing it and right after, you're like "WTF was i thinking?!?! this is so painful" but then a couple weeks later, or when someone else starts talking about different shows they've done, or you see the application is out for a juried show... you get that itch. That "OOH that could be a good show" itch.
My festival plan for 2010 includes both Twist shows, Foundry, CraftLand, Providence Art Festival and a couple other ones I've never done before. Also included in that plan is a new booth set up. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of dealing with gridwalls... they are the HORRID. Not sure which system I want but anything other than those damn giant heavy horrible gridwalls.
Now that all the shows are over for 2009, it's time to take a deep breath and list the remaining inventory on Etsy... including the ones shown below.
