It's been one hundered and twenty two days.. that's better... typing out the words gives those days the importance they deserves.. the numbers make them seem quick and easy.. you think I'm crazy I know.. and you have no clue what I'm talking about either.. but it was been one hundered and twenty two days since D was born.. we have made it through the NICU of one hospital and being transfered to the NICU of another. We ploughed through nipple confusion and are nearing the end of colic (hopefully). We are getting through the nights better and we take each day as it comes some good and some not so. He now not only smiles but giggles.. loves the baby in the mirror and sucks, chews and drools on everything..
He got his immunizations today, not happy about that and we are going to be starting on solids from tomorrow. We barely remember life before these one hundred and twenty two days and the funny thing is no ones complaining. Well maybe a little ; )
Last month I was approached by the wonderful Nancy Torsen, artist and owner of Fair Wind Studio in Columbus, Ohio. She with the help and support of her husband and daughter was opening a brick motar in the all new semi 'Flea Market Style' Marketplace of Americas and was looking for consignments from fellow artists. The store was.. well is selling everything from jewelry and clothes to sculptures and 3D as well as 2D art. It official opening was last weekend and I was a bit late in getting my photographs to her, I had an uncooperative baby!
These are just a few of the photographs I have for sale at the Fair Winds Studio all also available at my Etsy shop. This is my first time doing something like this. I have taken part in an auction some years ago but that was more of an online nature. Where I printed, framed and shipped out only the work that was sold, so no money lost. Here it was a bit different since my work had to be present in the physical form, printed and ready for sale. I am wishing Nancy the best of luck with her store and I am hoping to come out of this with a good experiance and hopefully a few sales.
So for all those people in the Columbus area, stop by and take a look. If not something of mine you might like something by another artist. For other people who have done consignment work before, how was your experiance? Would you do it again? And for those looking to do consignment work give Nancy a shout out.. this might be your chance. You can visit her blog and learn more about it here http://fairwindstudio.wordpress.com/
