Gonna Have Fun Going Broke...

I've decided to take the plunge and enter myself into a local art show.  It's called "Art in the Lot" - a little art fair in my church's bookstore's parking lot.  My sweet church crowd is about as safe as they get...but I'm still so nervous!  It's strange to put myself out there and call my photography "art" for all the world to see.

What if they don't like it?  What if no one buys anything?  What if I'm set up next to a REAL artist?  Yikes!

And I'm certainly not going to make any money.  It will take several hundred dollars to prepare prints (printing, packaging, etc), I have to provide a table, awning, and easels (which I don't have...anyone have one I can borrow?), and I have lots of work to do to make a portfolio book, promotional cards, and note cards.  Seriously - I'm never going to get my money back out.  

BUT...this has been a dream of mine for a while, and it's time.  And the entry fee for a 10'x12' space is only $20.  That $20 goes toward the missions fund for my church, which is something I feel passionate about.  

I might break the bank and end up wishing I'd continued to save for a new Cannon...but I'm going to have fun doing it!  And hey, you never know...maybe someone out there will be saved because of my $20.

Now THAT'S a big dream.  Good thing we have a big God :)

YAY! It's the little "events" that lead the the larger ones! You'll soon have a gallery showing.;-)

I can't wait to hear about this.

Good for you! See that wasn't so hard was it?

I'm very excited for you. I can't wait to see how it goes. My husband just bought me my first digital camera for my birthday today. I hope to post some photos soon. I will be praying for you.
Love & Prayers
