Ju Ju Jubilee

This past weekend, I was a vendor at my first festival event at the Chesapeake Jubilee! I was so nervous and excited at the same time because although I know I do decent work, no one besides my friends and family have seen my hand painted glasses and I just didn’t know if other people would like it. I was surprised at the outcome and I am happy the weather cleared up for people to come out.
My Mom and I got everything together that we thought we would need, from display items, tablecloth, business cards, sign and a bunch of stuff. It felt like one of those moments, a moment I will never forget and I will always look back on and cherish. Last year, I had helped out a tattoo shop at the same jubilee, and I told myself a year ago that I would have my own table and I would sell my artwork. I had no idea then, that I would be painting on glassware. A happy accident you could say. I rather enjoy it.
I created so many cool designs that I think are more my style than just the swirly design.
I was surprised at the response I received to my glasses and it really humbled me to hear compliments on my work. The work that I have stayed up for countless hours burning the midnight oil, or rather burning my candles, to create these unique pieces for others to enjoy. I needed that boost. After going through so much this past month of personal issues, this event confirmed that I am on the right path when it comes to my artwork and my career. And I couldn’t be happier at this very moment.
I just wanted to share a few photos from the festival and I am hoping to do at least one festival or event once a month and of course I will continue to sell my artwork on my etsy shop! (you can check it out at the top of my page under the etsy tab! )
As always, thanks for stopping by!
