Preparing for the Naperville show

It has been a little bit of a madhouse over the last week while preparing for this weekend's art fair in Naperville, IL.

There is always so much to do no matter how prepared I think I might be.  Last minute framing work, shopping for extras and figuring out how I'm going to fit all of it into our SUV.

I get SO nervous before each show and I'm not sure why because it's usually a very positive experience.

The picture on the left is one of the shots I did last week for some more still life reference photos.  The picture below is a corner of my gallery and the disarray it's in while I'm packing for the show.

Wow! Your "disarray" looks pretty organized. Hope you have a good show!

Thanks Emily! I guess I don't get too crazy with tossing things around because I would probably have a meltdown if I damaged anything. :P It's late, I'm not ready to sleep but I'm going to try to get some rest now anyhow. I just get so excited and nervous! I'll post an update with some pictures on how everything went early next week. Have a great weekend!

i get nervous a lot before gigs but someone told me, "that's because you care!"- and i know that is true. so it's a good thing! :)

Oh Kerri, whoever said that to you is the greatest! What a wonderful way of looking at it and I will always remember that now!
