My 99th Post! Look for a giveaway on my 100th!

Go Your Own Way

This is my 99th post! Look for a giveaway on my next post!
(Whenever that is! Posts have been skimpy here lately, haven't they? Read on and find out why!)
Hey! I'm in a Treasury on Etsy! Check it out!
I've recently become fascinated with Steampunk, as I know many of you have, too. On a Steampunk group on Indie Public I found this link to pics of a San Francisco based game company's office. They are amazing. What a fun place to work that must be!

Once again, I'm sorry for the long delay in my posting. Usually that would mean that this post would be a juicy, long one - but nooooooooo! Not today. The leaders of the Seattle Etsy Street Team, Etsy Rain, have organized another group show for us. What a fabulous job they do! I hope everyone is as lucky as we are to have such great leadership on their street team. Anyway, they negotiated a group spot for us at the entrance to Artist's Alley at the Showcase Tacoma Art Festival. I'm only taking mixed media pieces - which is terrifying to me. I know how to sell jewelry, I usually do well selling jewelry, and I'm fine if people don't like what I do in that arena - but the paintings and assemblages are so much more personal. I'm not sure how I'll feel if I don't do well. It's Friday and Saturday - keep your fingers crossed for me!

Naturally, I'm working like a madwoman to build up my mixed media inventory. I've got 5 paintings going at once and I'm about to start on 2-3 more backgrounds. I am, of course, in a panic.

Hi Laurie- Suzan's post above is pretty funny! What HAS happened to you? Thanks for the kind comment on Flickr. I know I mentioned it before, but do you read artsymama Kari Ramstrom? She just blogged about her 5-yr-old some "graduating" from his autism class he started at age 2-thought you would like to see it.
Think about www.znecon.com for next spring!
