Pretty Things to sign up for Lori's Bead Soup Blog Party!
It's an amazing amount of fun and I highly recommend it! My swap partner last time was the ever-so-talented JJ Jacobs, the package she sent was stunning, and I had a great time coming up with my design. And the blog hop reveal was pure inspiration.
Beyond that, I'm thinking about class submissions for Fusion Beads winter schedule, and an artist friend has almost talked me into participating in the Uptown Art Stroll at the end of August.
I've never had a booth at an art festival and am really not sure that I can make enough inventory between now and then. But I'm considering.... Those of you who do art festivals, what sort of price ranges do best?
