Opportunities to excel abound (as my coworker always says)Posted: 09/28/2010
There are some good vibes brewin’ round redshoes26 design headquarters. Last week I was contacted out of the blue by two show planners who asked if I would be interested in joining their events. I signed up for both! I will divulge said shows when the paperwork goes through and everything is inked in pen.
I also contacted an event planner from the Maplewood Community Center after my daddio gave me the heads up that the MCC is planning a 2010 Bridal Expo. Turns out there were two spots left, and I nabbed one of them. I’ll be showing my custom wedding invitation suites on Sunday, Oct. 17, from 1-3 p.m. There’s also a fashion show from 3-4. It’s a short show, and was kind of pricey to be a part of, but I’m going to see what comes of it. I’ve wanted to do a bridal fair/expo for some time now, so this will be a way to dip my toe into this side of my business. All of my wedding clients so far have been friends or friends of friends, and two have come from having my escort cards featured in Mpls.St.Paul Weddings magazine in 2008. I’m still so thankful for that wonderful press.
And, on Thursday I’m meeting with a fellow artist friend about a collaboration. It would involve her artwork and my wedding-suite design skillz. I will post more when the info is nailed down. I’m very excited for this opportunity!
And finally, from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 1, I’ll be at The AZ Gallery in St. Paul for the opening reception for the art show that I was asked to be a part of. The show runs through Oct. 31 and includes the Saint Paul Art Crawl from Oct. 8-10. I’ll be at The AZ during the Crawl, so if you can’t make it out this Friday, be sure to swing by Oct. 8-10! I’ll be exhibiting my mixed-media shadowboxes (including two new ones that I created this week!) and possibly some of my drawings and digital collages, if I have room on my wall…. :^)
Times for the Crawl are as follows:
Friday, Oct. 8, 5-10 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 9, noon-8 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 10, noon-5 p.m.
See you there!
