Honies, I'm Home.


Hi!!!

Oh I have missed, missed, missed you!!!

ok, before I get into chatting about the show, I am going to talk about the contest, I was going to announce the winner today, but I lied, I will actually announce the winner tomorrow, and I am going to share a bunch of photos from the show as well.

You will also get to see a photo or 2 of my bubs...YES, HE IS REAL!!! No imaginary bubs for me.

ok, the show......................


first, I had a wonderful, wonderful time. Just to get away for a bit was much needed. To tell the truth, i partied like I was a damn Olsen Twin, it was great.

Now the bad side....The show was very slow, and though we did well without our comics, I only sold 4 art cards all weekend.

Ouch.

I have had a rough time at selling cards at shows before, but never this rough. So consider my self esteem very bruised, on the plus side for you all.....that means I have a ton of new cards that I will; be listing in the shop thins week.

YAY!!

ok, here are some wonderful parts of the weekend....

My bubs and I took a taxi into the city Friday night to go to the McCormick and Schmick's out there, one of my bubs' chefs was kind enough to comp our meal and drinks for the night. I was more than wonderful.

On Saturday we had fun at the show, I got to expand my ever growing comic art collection (photos coming this week) I also got to meet for the second time, one of my idols, Terry Moore, the writer/artist/creator of my favorite comic of all time "Strangers in Paradise".

that night we hung out in out room, had some drinks, went to an auction and then hit the penthouse for the after party and free drinks, you gotta love free drinks.

Sunday was dreadfully slow day, I was out looking around the convention, and when I came back my bubs told me that our friend Diana and her family had come to the show.

I love Diana she is a doll, so I was thrilled to hear it, Diana calls herself my biggest fan, she has shown incredible support for me over the past year, in every way.

So, when Keith told me she was there it just made everything just that much better, but then he said, "oh, and she left you a gift" and low and behold there was a gift bag behind the table, he handed it to me so I could open it, and inside the gift bag was...................................

a Dior purse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was practically screaming and going around and showing people. WOW!!!!! It was a good day to be Jenn, that is all I have to say about that!!!

The strangest thing was when someone came over to my table and told me my work looked just like an artist that they really liked on Etsy....lol.

Oh and before I forget, I will be listing a new comic in my etsy shop as well it will be there later today so be on the look out, I will give it a proper write up tomorrow, but you are all the first to know.

I was lucky enough to be part of an amazing anthology put out by Bad Place Productions, I have three pages of art included in the book, so besides cover work, this is the first time that my art has been published anywhere.

so be on the lookout for that.

picture I am showing today is a lovely piece I have in my shop right now, it is 8x8 on canvas panel.

until tomorrow, when I promise, lots of photos and the contest winner.

I'm sorry to hear that the show didn't go as planned.
It did sound like a great time. Free drinks and a free purse sounds like a great score to me.

Despite the slow sales, it sounds like you had a great time.

There's alot to be said for just getting away from the grind for a bit!

Looking forward to the photos...

Slow sales suck (I am an alliteration master!), but I'm glad you and yer bubs had a good weekend. And you got to meet Terry Moore! And you got a new purse! All in all, not a bad time, if you ask me.

I'm glad you're back, though. You were missed on the internets Friday.

Oh, and: that's exciting news about you being in that comic anthology! Although when you first said "new comic", I got my hopes up and thought you meant Stiletto Heights number 4. Ah, well; I can dream. ;)

Wow - What a fantastic weekend! Drinks (especially free) are always fun. I am glad you partied like an Olsen rather than LaLohan or BritBrit. Glad to have you back in blogosphereworld.

Did I win? kidding..

"partied like an olsen twin" cracked me up.

Wrong crowd baby.. 4 cards sold at comic obsessed people convention. 900 sales at Etsy in one year! One year, that's fuckin incredible and Etsy is no picnic for sales either.

Did i win now?

lurve,

Shows can be so darn tricky. But, at least you had fun and sadly, I might go somewhere to do a show in return for a Dior bag. :) So, that was very very wonderful! Oh, Bubs is real? I thought he was a blow up doll. JUST KIDDING! Mr. Lovee is a blow up doll ;* I wish. He has an opinion the size of your town. Sooooooo, I am delighted youa re back. My mom's gift is going to be amazing. And, I am not even unwrapping it before she sees it!!! I am leaving it just as you sent my amazing order! Love you oodles!!!! xxxo, Vanessa

Yay that you are back! Hooray!

Sounds like you had a really fab time on your weekend but that is too bad that you didn't sell more art cards. Those people just don't know what they missed! Way cool on your Dior bag. Neato! Wahoo!

Can't wait to see all the new stuff in your store this week!

xo,

Karen Beth :)
