I know I've said this before but I do have the BEST customers ever. I look forward to every show because there are customers that I've become friends with over the years. I enjoy catching up with old friends and meeting new friends. This past weekend, I was at art-A-poolza in Green, OH. I used to do the show for years then I stopped doing it. It was only because our daughter went away to college and that was the time we would take her back to school. Also, our son had football games on Saturday and I didn't want to miss them.
Anyway, I was back at the show this past Saturday. It was so nice to hear that people actually missed me and said they are so glad I was back. It really touched me. It helps renew me and keeps me going. I can't ever stop doing what I'm doing because I really do love it but I do get worn out. I've learned over the years that I really need balance in my life. So when I'm not working (doesn't feel like work most of the time), I enjoy time with my husband and kids and when we get tired of each other my cats LOL. But hearing stories (I'm all about stories LOL) about where my pictures have gone or what they meant to someone gives me the energy I need to take more pictures.
Long story but a long time ago, I had an idea of doing a coffee table book. I actually did one but never officially published it. It wasn't very good and I think I did it before I was meant to. I have a tendency to do things before I'm suppose to! I set it aside and never thought about it again. At the last few shows, people have been telling me I need to do a coffee table book. I feel like now is the time. My daughter is a very good writer so she will be helping me with it. I'm so excited and can't wait to get started! Will keep you updated on the progress!
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for all of your support and encouragement!
