This Saturday was my first experience with selling at an art show. My friend Bethany who uses my beads in her jewelry designs had a booth at the Indian Hills Art Festival here in Ottumwa. It was an outdoor show with about 25 vendors selling their art; some jewelry, pottery, paintings, photography and a handful of other things. It was a lot of fun even though the temperature was pushing the upper 90's. I'm super excited too because a pair of earrings with a set of my floral beads won the Regional Business Award for fine arts! How cool! I was told that jewelry never wins so that makes it even better. Bethany graciously let me keep the ribbon so I have a new big blue ribbon hanging over my clay table! I would put a picture up but I left my camera in one of the jewelry boxes that my friend has with her. oops. I'll post them as soon as I get my camera back.
