“Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid it will never begin.”
I made it through Mayday! Despite nerves and last-minute panic attacks, the show happened and I survived it all with a smile on my face.
There was a steady, lovely crowd there from opening until after closing. People were kind in their words and manner. I sold a few things, including the Gathered Yoke Shirt.
The show was such fun, too. There was live music, a hula demonstration, and chocolate samplings throughout the day. The Village Gate was beautiful to look at with sculptures and other pieces of art decorating the space.
I wasn’t able to see much of the rest of the show because I was by myself all day, though what I did see what great! I’m sad to say that the pictures L1 & I took were few and poor. Wrong lens, wrong ISO, and a feeling like I didn’t have time to take pictures because I needed to be ready to greet and talk with people all contributed to some of the worst pictures I’ve taken in a long time. *sigh* That is my biggest disappointment, I think, that I don’t really have good pictures to hold the show better in my memory.
Whatever may come after this, more shows or no (though I think more would be good!), at least I won’t have regrets.
