Post ‘Makers Market’Review

It went pretty much as I thought it would, it was very hot and the hoped for crowds were not crowds but just a few after church groups. I had my umbrella so I had shade most of the time and did manage to sell $150 worth of my “stuff”. But I only sold one oval canvas to a young girl who bought it for her big sister. That is what I expected, my enthusiasm for the ovals has never been great but I have a new idea for them.

The friend that made the blocks to show the ovals has a business selliing religious note cards and other similar items. I’m thinking to add some words to these ovals and he may be able to add it to his inventory. It’s a thought. I need to find a nice font, people like words on stuff.

By the way, all my abstract paintings sold but I’d only brought 3 with me thinking there would be no interest, I should have brought everything I had, even those I pounded onto my studio door!

About my internet, I’ve decided to almost always use my hot spot on my Ipad, right now I’m on my computer and can use wifi but I can’t on my ipad, almost never.

I tend to use my ipad more than my computer, last night I was listening to a Wondrium class ‘Religions of the World’ and fell asleep.(it was not the classes fault I fell asleep)So I used up all my data but that’s unusual and I was tired. I’m going back to see what I missed. I’m enjoying Wondrium, there are so many different topics, and I can download some to watch without internet connection. I don’t miss TV at all, except it would be nice to watch them on a larger screen. I haven’t watch Netflexs since I broke my TV, I should cancel it and just learn new stuff.

The other day I took about 100 selfies trying to find a new one for my Kate Othon website. It’s not so easy anymore to find a pic I want to share. I’ve lost a bit of weight(all good) so my face is thinner and I’ve not tried to avoid the sun so I’m wrinkled and dry. Such is the vanity of an old woman! Most of my friends and family have grown older along with me but they haven’t lived in the desert for the past 3 years and it makes a difference. Here is one that looks like me now at 78 years old. I like this one, the color looks good, I have red curtains so that made the skin tones pinker but the background is not great to use on my site but when it’s small like this I can use it, I look a little pensive, these glasses are those that block the blue light cheap progressives I love!

That website is a mess but my daughter Marissa is going to help me fix it. I can do it but i don’t know how to make it look like I want it to look.Sorry this post is rambling on without much content. I will try harder to share more interesting posts in the future. Wondrium has classes on writing I could try, I’m taking a class on the media and all the different ways to use socal networking but I’m not too interested in joining all those options any more.Too much trouble at this point to try to keep up.

ciao!
