Made It

Made it to Arisia, despite myself. I'd been gathering all the display and packing materials and writing the blurbs, but the actual "putting together" of all it didn't happen till Thursday evening - Friday morning and of course took longer than expected. Finally got to the hotel, long time to register (at the hotel, the con registration went surprising quickly even for pre-reg), long time to get luggage up to the room, very long time to do setup at the art show but it got done, finally.

After all that, I found some lunch/dinner, made it back up to the art show for the reception and talked to some really nice people, made it back down to the main con room for some of the Palimpsest concert, had wanted to go to other things but was too exhausted, and crashed in the room for 10 hours of sleep. And that was my day.


Arisia Update: and the last shall be first...

I still haven't posted pictures of "Oak Woman" though luckily I took a lot. It's the last piece I made before Arisia. It's already sold at the "quick purchase" price, and there's a bid on one of the necklaces. I've now made back the cost of reserving space in the art show! (Materials, tools, display, packing, hotel, con membership, you ask? Hush!)

I went to jenwrites's reading today, and heard the first chapter of her new novel that her agent is just starting to send out. Fascinating premises, great main character, and I hope it does sell quickly so we get to read the rest.
