Something New.....

I'm being very brave.  I'm stepping out on a limb to try something new.  I'm renting a booth at the Davis County Fair in August.  That means I'll be selling actual, tangible products.  Not just digital downloads.  It seems silly, but I'm kind of nervous about that.  Equal parts nervous and excited.

Anyway....I'm hoping some of you will come see me there.  And I'm wondering if you have any suggestions about what I should put in my booth.  Do you have any favorites? Or ideas for something new? I'd love to hear your suggestions.  I've got till the end of August to pull something together. :)

Susan, how awesome!

All your work is amazing! I am sure ANY of it would be great!

Ideas: First, bring some prints of Utah/Western States temples. Those would be great! Another idea, have you thought about doing something like Mary Engelbreit & illustrating a few favorite quotes? I think you would be BRILLIANT at that! Something like Shakespeare’s “Though she be but little, she is fierce!” or Thoreau’s “ If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” Or Holland: “No misfortune is so bad that whining about it won't make it worse.” Or "The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” C. S. Lewis "Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.” You are really gifted at being able to capture a moment, a feeling, in your work, and I think that would suit you so well to illustrate some quotes. I for one, would love to have one such quote, illustrated by you, on my wall! And another thing I would love would see is prints for months or seasons – for instance, I have a little corner of my kitchen where I like to put up a picture or quote about that season or month. Like “A life without love is like a year without fall.”

Anyway! That’s my brainstorm for you. If I have any more ideas, I’ll let you know!

Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your gifts!!!!
