Harper and I dropped off the Artfest workshop proposals at the post office early this afternoon. YAY!

I have to say I'm relieved to have it out of my hands. Now the waiting begins. Let's hope June 7th gets here soon.

Almost Done!

My Artfest 2011 workshop proposals are finished! All I have left is photographing two of the versions in the morning.

I ended up doing two workshop proposals instead of three. The two were enough. If I had another week, I could have put another one together, but I don't want to cut things that close to the wire.

Sooooo... I'll try to put together a sneak peak after I get my packet in the mail tomorrow. Then the waiting really starts until June 7th when I get the news! Keep your fingers crossed!!!

HAPPY Friday!

And the winners are...

And the winners are.....
#14 Angel ( and #17 Eli (

Congratulations and thanks for commenting! Please email your shipping address and print choice to shellymassey01 (at)

Winners selected by the psychic science random number generator... I picked that generator because it looked the most entertaining.

And the results are...
12 say reveal
10 say don't reveal

I didn't expect it to be so close! I thought for sure there would be a dramatic opinion swing one way or another. Guess I feel better now about being on the fence about what to do...but with your help, I was able to make a decision.

And the decision is...
I'm not revealing. Yet. BUT SOON! I'm going to wait until I know the results, but that's not far off! Submissions are due June 1, and then teachers are notified on June 7. SOON!

But because I'm making you wait...
Anyone who commented on the Reveal/Don't Reveal post will get a 5x7 mini print by emailing their shipping address to me at shellymassey01 (at) Yay!

Thanks to everyone who commented!

To Reveal or Not to Reveal + GIVEAWAY!

So my Artfest workshop proposals are coming together. Well, one of them is coming together nicely; the other is a battle, but I'm determined to make it work. Oh, and if I get really crazy, I may even throw in a third proposal.

So here's a question for you + a GIVEAWAY! Do you think I should reveal my projects on my blog? If so, when?? Or should I keep them a surprise for when I get selected? ('Cause that's what's gonna happen, you know...I will teach at Artfest! I claimed it!) :)

Leave a comment with your opinion, and I'll enter you into a drawing to win a free print of your choosing from my Etsy shop along with some extra goodies of my choosing. Yay, GIVEAWAY!

AND because I'm feeling extra excited this morning (could be the caffeine, but let's go with it, shall we?) if I have more than 15 comments, I'll give away TWO prints!

(One entry per person, please.) :) I'll do the drawing on Tuesday, May 18!

Sneaky Peeky

I'm back and slowly getting back into life at home again. Thought I'd give another little sneak peek into what's going on with the Artfest workshop proposals.

P.S. No, the last photo isn't a workshop for those Anthropologie plastic bottle chandeliers. :)
