My heart went out to my artist friends participating in the art & craft shows this weekend. Saturday, in these parts, was chilly and rainy. Thankfully, Sunday showed up just like it was supposed to, full of sunshine and renewed spirit!
I printed 100 of the new business cards that I designed last night. Those images are just your garden variety Microsoft clip art. If there’s a member among us who wants to take a stab at making this better, have at it. I really like the concept though, of including as many mediums as space allows. And you know I love little boxes all lined up nice and neat. I’m pretty happy with this overall – but am more than happy to consider anything else similar!
I spent about 4 hours at Fairport Canal Days today, hanging out with artist friends, meeting Rochester Crafters in person whom I only knew online and of course recruiting new members. I gave out all 100 of those business cards so I’ll be reprinting more when I head to my studio shortly. I’ve now added my personal contact information on the back – not sure why I didn’t think of that earlier.
Here are some of our artist members I talked to today. Unfortunately I didn’t photograph every member I ran into because sometimes I got so busy yakking with them, I forgot! Shocking, I know. Click on the images to visit the artist’s website.
