Exciting News!

7 Mar

I have been invited to participate in the Norcross Art Fest in historic downtown Norcross, Georgia!  I am so pumped about this, y’all!

Norcross Art Fest by Splash Festivals

Friday afternoon I received email titled “Your great artwork” from Frances Schube, one of the founders of Splash Festivals, Inc.  <<insert uncontrollable heart racing>>  The email was an invitation to be a part of one of the two art festivals that is held yearly.  Their events are by invitation only participation, so needless to say I about fainted as I read her email.  THIS. ROCKED. MY. WORLD !

My number #1 fan and super supportive husband didn’t think twice before saying “YES, WE’RE GOING!”  So, I excitedly accepted the invitation and completed my registration and come October 1 and 2 we’ll be in Georgia and I’ll be surrounded by a 100+ other inspiring artist selling my work to the estimated 50,000 attendants .

For this I feel honor.  For this I did cry a little.  For this I know God caused to happen.  For this I am so grateful.

As the details for the 2011 event unfold, I’ll keep you up-to-date.  For now, I’m off to paint!
