Success! Three day event takes a wrap!
Holy Moly, I don't even know how I am still awake. The show just ended about 3 hours ago. I have so many different feelings and reflections about the whole thing. I wanted to give you all an update about the success of the show and remind you how grateful i am to have had your support.
There were SO many times that I thought of each and every one of my backers. I would have so many moments where I could not believe I was there...there is no way I could have been there if it wasn't for the amazing group of supporters I have. Every time I mentioned I came from America, people were shocked. I told each of them there was no way i would be there if it wasn't for the fundraiser and my amazing community. Several times I was brought to tears with the pure joy of the reality of the dream I was able to live because of you all.
The show was successful on many levels.
Here is a list of some of my outcomes....
I sold 8-10 prints, countless greeting cards and sets, as well as postcards. I also gave many away to people I connected with or just appreciated!
I sold 25 T-shirts at full price! I got one direct offer to sell my t-shirts in a woman's future shop in her yoga studio located in the UK. Many request and contacts for single shirt orders. The shirts were my biggest success, people LOVED them. it is making me reconsider how far I want to take them...perhaps a whole line of yoga tree clothing?? Who knowss......
One possible commission from a woman from Spain who owns a studio.
An offer to show my work in Nepal with accommodations provided...:D
A number of priceless connections with people of the yoga world that will surely be significant in the further success of my art and passion for yoga!
OVERALL....We rocked it! Big ups to my dear friend Heather Imperial...she helped me out SO much. I can't imagine have doing the event without her. THANK YOU HEATHER!!!
And again...thank all of you! Check out my fan page on Facebook for photos!
DAY ONE: THIS IS AWESOME!
First day down, Friday...the slowest day as they say. I have made some really awesome connections and sold several prints, a few shirts, a bunch of greeting cards, and had a hit on my new chakra paintings. Most exciting, a Yogi from Spain would like to commission a piece for her studio! I hope that works out :D My shirts are getting me a lot of attention...they pull peopl
m more than ready for it! I feel really great energy wise and my smile is still strong. I hope to get in some yoga tomorrow and a few meditation classes. My friend is helping me out a great deal! I am soooo grateful~! I
ll keep you all posted!
The show is just 4 days away! I can not believe that the time has finally come to fly out to London and share my vision with the world. I fly out tomorrow from California, with a red eye flight to London!
It is hard to put into words what I envision for this experience. Just know, I am bringing my entire being there with me. Not to sell, but to share. I am bringing the 8 year old who scribbled ALL OVER her bedroom walls, more than once. (sorry Mom) I am bringing the high school art nerd who was always hanging out in the art studio. I am bringing the nervous Freshman college student, taking her first drawing class. I am bringing the young woman who fells so incredibly supported by her community that she is just beaming with purpose and confidence. And most of all, I am bringing you! May you feel my energy radiate through you! My joy is a gift and extension of yourself, and I am blessed to be connected to you. :D
Feel free to check out this link to view the online free program!
I am booth B16A! I have already received interest from the exposure in the program! I can not wait to get there and meet all the new people that connect to my work.
You can check out my facebook fan page to view my "Getting Ready for London" Album. So far it has several photos some of the things I have been working on in order to get ready for the show. I will take as many photos as possible of my exhibit and trip. Those will be updated as soon as I get back!
Thank you all again! This means the world to me, I can't stop smiling or sporadically jumping up and down shouting, "yaaaaaaaawhooooooooo!"
Printing, ordering, shipping, spending!
It has been 2 weeks since my project goal date pasted. Each day I devote a few hours at least to getting ready for London. It is a constant in my life right now, and man am I having fun!
Yesterday I met with my local screen printer Jeannette and her husband. I have placed an order for a man and woman version of a long, cotton fitted T. Both T's have a v-neck and hug the body in all the right ways. I will be making 3 different shirts from 3 of my original black and white drawings. Two of the designs have not been shown to the world yet! The one you are all familiar with is "Peace Grows Within." I am so pumped to not only have all my friends rock these shirts, but also the trendy European folk I will be selling them to. I chose the stylish V-neck, with a soft fitted feel to make the shirts something perfect to practice yoga in.
Still shopping for the right priced plane ticket. I am trying to get one for $800! I bet I will get one for less...as long as I put that intention out there. My friend Kait, a world traveler, is helping me get the best deal. Thanks Kait!!
In a few days I will begin to order all of your rewards! As soon as I get them in I will begin assembling them and getting them out to you! Exciting!
Stay tuned..and in the mean time...GET CREATIVE!
