Art in the Park

We're back from New Mexcio. Whew, kind of a long trip in just a few days. BUT, my very first show went great, way better than I expected! I worked hard on getting my booth just right. I wanted it to have the right feel and allow people to walk through and back out without having to turn around and bump into other people. It worked out well.
The weather was great, I met a lot of nice people and made a good amount of sales. A great day all around...
To top it off, the Art Council, who sponsored the show, awarded me the Best Booth Display for the entire show (out of 90+ vendors). Wow~ not bad for my first show ever! And as an added perk, I'll get a free booth at the show next year. I'll be back! (I have to defend my title --- ha ha)
Special thanks to Laura Garcia, who organized this year's show! She did a great job and was very accomodating and great to work with. (Laura also has a shop on Etsy, BasementCreations, check her out!)

Yee Ha!

Congrats! Best Booth is a real accomplishment - lots of competition. You are a cowgirl who knows how to market herself and who creates fantastic jewelry to boot!

You beat me for the title. JK I was at the show too but doubt we were in the running. I didn't get to make it around to all the other booths. Love the jewelry especially the heart of cowgirl braelet.
