I can not believe it is here! I have been on a crazy count down but it is now a week away!!! One week from today I will be setting up my booth. The show starts Saturday Feb 11th and goes until the 16th. I am in the last few details of getting everything together. I have created 4 new CollageAPets just for the show. I am taking 10 of my personal collections and then borrowing 10 from my local customers from the past. I have added some new products to the website this week. I am now going to start selling Note Cards. I have 9 different breeds of dogs available. Click Here to see the Note Cards. Here are the 9 dogs that are available.
Over the last few months I have received so much support from family, friends, and fans! I have appreciated all the finical support through the GoFundMe site, CollageAPet orders, and supportive messages on Facebook. You guys will never know how much this process of getting ready for Westminster has changed my life. You guys have poured love and support all over CollageAPet and have made me feel so unique and special. As an artist one of the biggest complements to hear is that your are orignial and people have never seen anything like you before. It is so hard to be unique these days. So much art has been created before us. It is so hard to stay original. To all of you that have told me how you love CollageAPet, you have made believe that I have something really special. I am so blessed by God that He has chosen to given me this talent and ability to create art.
Over the last week I have received so many orders that I have now had to double my turn-around time from 4-6 weeks to 10-12 weeks. I haven't even had the show yet and I am already booked up more now than I have experienced in the last 3 1/2 years. THIS IS CRAZY I HAVEN'T EVEN HAD THE DOG SHOW YET!!!! ...what is coming my way!?!?! If I am honest, this is a little intimidating, but very exciting!
My goal for the next week is to stay "present" and absorb ALL of these moments. This is a HUGE milestone in my life and I hope to remember and cherish every moment of it! This could seriously change my life forever! It would be such an honor to create art and be sustained because of it!
Thank you to all my family, friends, and fans who have helped this dream come true! I love you guys and can't wait to give updates along the way!
