Baby Steps
Topic: Art

I'm making progress. I actually went and checked out the Showcase gallery in Costa Mesa. It's very nice. Now, I'm having one of those I'm not worthy moments. Somehow I always think my art isn't good enough. Hey I can join the gallery. What's the worst that could happen....They reject my art. So what if I don't take the stuff in I'll never know if I could have sold it.

 Take the next marilee for an appointment.

Art Marketing
Topic: Art
It was a productive day at the Art Marketing Salon. I was invited to show my art at the gift shop of the gallery. that is way cool. I also worked on changing my business cards to reflect what I do in each thing. I now have an art card, a writer card, and a tutor card. Now I'll just have to decide who I hand each kind too.....

Busy Weekend
Topic: Journal

WOW was that a busy weekend.

Saturday started at the crack of dawn with our ATM cooking. My husband and I coordinate the church's cooking for AIDs patients. Always fun, but then we had the board meeting, potluck dinner, and choir concert to attend. One thing after another. I'm so glad I took a nap!

Sunday was also busy. I hosted the art group's collage workshop. I'm so relieved. We had good attendance. Eight women showed up and made collages. I had a great time. Fun stuff.

Art Salon
Topic: Art
I had a great time meeting the other women in the artbiz marketing salon. I felt a little out of my league as the are all farther along in their careers, but I want to learn and get me work out there. It's good to stretch and reach higher. I'll make it.

Sorting Hat Quiz
Topic: Journal

Okay that was really fun. I took several on-line sorting hat quizes and they all said the same thing. How funny! Getting in the mood for Harry Potter and the Deadly Hollows.

They all said Ravenclaw!
