MARCH 1, 2010

My energy is running low.  I have no motivation, but try to push myself on pure caffeine and adrenaline.  I successfully spilled coffee all down my leg while driving and getting it all over the driver side of my car.  This art show is a lot of work.  Don't get me wrong I am having a blast doing it, but there are a lot of details that you don't realize.  
The promoting, the planning, the finalizing, the framing, the showing, the art work itself.  Let alone what do you say to people, how do you act, what do you wear.  It is getting to me.  I feel I bit off more than I can chew.  

I need ten more hours in the day and interns to be doing my grunt work.  I need three point 7 of me and a money tree to shake.  

Please don't get me wrong.  I am learning alot from this experience and alot about me, but the panic button was pushed.  Less than two weeks, that is crunch time.  No turning back.


Happy note! My new flyers look amazing and stand out quite well.  So do my business cards, magnets, post cards and rack cards.  I also received a mouse pad, which I gave to my mom.  Looks pretty amazing to me.

My flyers now hang in Rubber City Clothing, Made in Akron, Acme Artists, Cyrus Custom Framing, Absolute Tattoo Shop, Sonnets, Whole Day Cafe, and the Wadsworth Post Office.  

Tomorrow the list will continue to grow.  A skateshop, another Artish gallery, Possibly a club.  I am trying to think of other places but my brain is not currently working.  Hopefully more will be spread around.  I love networking, but it sure is a lot of work.  

Remember, I can make ugly, pretty!


There's always gonna be another mountain / I'm always gonna wanna make it move / Always gonna be a uphill battle / Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose

Ain't about how fast I get there /  Ain't about what's waiting on the other side / It's the climb -- Miley

I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! If anyone can do this it is you! Keep pushing yourself because I know this show is going to rock and push you into directions you never dreamed of!

Huge undertakings like this are always frightening! When I was putting my first book together, I was overwhelmed and ready to give up at least a dozen times. But you know it'll be worth it when you get to the end! :D

Plus, you'll have all kinds of experience under your belt for the next one :D

Keep on pluggin!

For sure. Just wore out! We will get there just a lot of things. I wanted to show that everything is not all fun and games. It is hard work. Just like any hard working artist -- they put a lot of work into it and do dirty work that no one sees.

Things will come together. My best advice I got from a good friend, "I am going to need you to relax" It is something that is so over looked. One step at a time!
