monday musings
I love it when I get gifties in the mail! Look at this gigantic box of ribbon that the sweet gals from Creative Impressions sent me! oh boy!! I can not wait to start using it. I plan on making a whole bunch more of my sitting poppetsĀ® and this will be perfect!

I spent today working on custom artwork orders, my goal is to get 5 sketch orders + 1 canvas order a week. So I am also working on a big PR campaign to boost orders. I sent out press releases to a few magazines, including domino magazine. Hope it works!

Then I was researching online backup systems. I think right now I am going to go with Carbonite. It's fairly easy to use and now I have 1/2 my stuff uploaded for the free trial. Mozy looks really hip and nice but now that I have gotten so far with Carbonite I am reluctant to mess with it anymore. I hate dealing with this stuff. I can always switch later if Carbonite doesn't work out.

After all that I started getting artwork ready for a show I am having at Orlando City Hall, August-October. I am seriously worried about having enough artwork for this show. Since I work so small (9x12 - 16x20) I don't know if my art will cover all the walls that I am supposed to. It is stressing me out. I have to turn in all the label information to them this week so I can't work on big stuff between now and then. akkk! Maybe the other guy who is showing at the same time can just take up some of my wall space!

It's late!! see you tomorrow!

I love a good pile of colorful ribbon!

Cool news about your art show! Are you allowed to decorate the wall space around your artwork? That might be fun...you could maybe use some of those removable wall decals or something. Or do decorative captions or titles under each piece. Or what about a couple of life-sized poppets, sort of like the standing cardboard things in movie theatres, only stuck to the walls?
 
good luck on getting ready!!!
 
Ooooh, it will all work out I'm sure! LOVE the ribbon and love the back up info. YOU are totally an inspiration. Oh my goodness. I am so glad we met!
 
Love all the pretty ribbons!!! Good luck on your show and your custom order business!!!
 
OMG, Claudine, that's GREAT news about your upcoming show. Please don't hesitate to call if you need help at any stage of the process.

Big matts take up space. Maybe you can fill the walls with the matt rather than the artwork itself? What's the space like? Can you sit some of your Poppet figures on shelving just about your artwork to take up space and add interest? Or, maybe you can enlarge some of your favorite pieces to super, super huge and use it as wallpaper on the walls behind your artwork to take up space?

Let me know when you're opening show is! I'd love to see it :-)
 
YOUR WORK IS SO UNIQUE. EVEN THOUGH IT IS SMALL IT SPEAKS VOLUMNS,SO DON'T WORRY.YOUR WORK WILL BRING LOTS OF SMILES.
 
Lucky you! How can I get lucky? LOL
