"My Favorite Things" experience

Hi to you,
I finally have the photos to show you of my collage showing at the "My Favorite Things" shop.
This little cozy store in my local town is without a doubt my favorite shop. So their name is the
perfect fit for them. I was in the store one day perusing all the lovely things and got to talking with the store owner, Tina,(that's her and I in the photo, I'm the one with the curly hair) and in the course of the conversation my collages came into the
discussion. Before I knew it, Tina was asking me if I'd like to be her featured artist at her open
house in March and of course I jumped at the offer! The stores focus is on all things Paris and France and of course lot's of glitter, so I created 5 new collages to go along with a few of my already created collages and had quite a repitoire to show.
I didn't sell any collages that evening but I received tons of positive comments and gave out my business cards so my work and name is getting "out there".
Tina is going to do another open house on Memorial day weekend and asked me if I would like to
come and be a part of it again, so I am thrilled.
For me the hardest part of being an artist is the self promotion part which I know many of you artists out there can relate too. But it is a part of the business that has to be done, unless of course you have your own agent. lol. Someday I hope to be successful enough to have one but for now it is just me and myself doing the promoting.
Hope you enjoyed reading about my art adventure, stay tuned because there will be many more!
talk to you soon,
P.S. check out Tinas website at: or go to her etsy site at: to see her wonderful creations.

Deborah--Your display looks so fabulous!! Congratulations on the showing, how wonderful! I used to have a little gift shop here in town that carried my creations for several years--they unfortunately had to close a couple years ago--I sure miss that aspect of the business.
Smiles, Karen

It's me again. Sorry for the deleted comment. That’s what happens when I try to leave a comment past my bedtime! (LOL) :~)

I wanted to thank you for the nice comments on my blog. It is always wonderful to meet another Francophile.
