My Utimate Goal.....

So, if you haven't  read Kelly Rae blog lately you have got to go over and check it out! She just posted pictures from her gift show back in January that was held in Atlanta. The pictures are amazing!!  The one above is from the Demdaco gift line collection. I love what this company is doing with her line of products !

I love when she post photos from her shows like this. They are so inspiring!  Having a Gift line collection, like this would be my ultimate goal!! It would be so amazing to see my artwork displayed as a Gift Line. How cool would it be to walk into a show and see my own artwork displayed like this??!!  THAT WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE!

This is another picture of some of her new products in the gift collections. Love these vintage looking distressed frames and I love the way the art is displayed with them. I have got to get me one, if not a few of those. I am just so excited for her! A little jealous but very excited. She has doing everything that I hope one day I can do. She is such a humble artist and that's what I love most about her. She willing to share her story with us and tell us how we can do it.  She encourages us to "Reach for our own dreams !!" And I'm reaching!!

Last week I was able to complete my Art Query letter, and sent out 3 art submissions. Hopefully I'll hear something from them soon! Still working on trying to find time for art but I'm doing better... Small Step until they turn into Giant Leaps !!!!

So in doing this I have started taking small steps. Within the last few months I have been submitting my art to small companies and magazine. Sadly to say I have been rejected by some and that can be discouraging, but I am determined to get this art out there no matter how many time I get rejected! Right now, I'm working on packaging my art postcards with hopes of getting them in a few local boutiques. So, if you guys have any suggestions on some cool way to package this art bundles please leave a comment below !!!!
