I just started a job at a children's art studio. It's called "My Art Studio" and we have some amazing art classes for children and quite a few for adults. The studio opened in May of 07' in Baldwin park and it is doing quite nicely. I "trained" for a few hours on Tuesday and the owner asked if i'd like to be in the local art festival. So, yesterday i got the privlege to be in the Baldwin Park art festival. It was extremely last minute but i was thankful for the opportunity! I arrived with a new friend is tow and headed to Baldwin Park at 7am, (ohh Courtney how thankful i am that you came!) and was graciously helped by two of my fellow co-workers. They were just amazing! (as is the rest of the staff i met yesterday) I sold about six pieces of jewelry and keychains and met dozens of great people. It was wonderful breezy Florida day, and many people were there. I did a ton of vocal advertising, handed out loads of my postcard flyers and had many sweet people compliment my work.
The most exciting factors in the day, were two women. One lady came up to my table and told me she loved my work, before heading out she went to take a flyer and noticed she knew me. I've sold her a few pieces before but didn't recognize her that morning. Another girl around my age saw my flyer from a fashion show i did a few months back. I honestly didn't think i received any exposure from the event, but she proved otherwise when she not only recognized my flyer, but previously visited my website.
Joy Joy! :)
Thank you to everyone at My Art Studio for helping me!! And to Ashely and Courtney for helping me and more importently providing me with some wonderful company!
