Mondaily with cold art feet and progress on various things.

I've got an art show on Friday - and I'm getting SO nervous. I wasn't too worried about it... until it started circulating on Facebook and people actually started signing up to attend and I got an inventory control form (that has to be turned in today) and realized that this is a little different than most of the shows I've done in the past. Most of those have been 'show up, throw your things on a table, be charming.' I can do that. I sell some coloring books, maybe some prints and cards, and some cheap bookmarks, give away some business cards, fill up my social cup and slosh over the top, and go home with the artwork I came with.

But this one, I've got to find a beret for. I'm not doing any of my own sales - they inventory tag everything and have a single point of sale, so I can't be as haphazard about what I bring as usual. I don't even have to hang my own work! My frames are going to look so cheap. My artwork is OLD and crappy. How much should I ask for it? I'm not sure what to put on my table! I'm A FRAUD!

*deep breaths*

No, I know I'm not. But that's what lizard-brain does at 4 in the morning. Or whenever I let it get a little steam and can't find the reins.

I DID get all the PDFs finished for my Kickstarter, and uploaded, and have started sending download links. I also updated my Etsy shop with new digi stamps: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ellenmillion
