Spring Marketing Conference – done deal
I learned something new about myself today – I can talk for an hour and a half without stopping. And it was something I hadn’t spoken about in public before. And I was up at 1 a.m. last night preparing for the discussion. And I did it without severe coffee abuse.
I did a presentation at the Vermont Crafts Council’s Spring Marketing Conference (as I described in my last post). I found it ironic that the title of my workshop was Time to Make Nice with Your Computer and then my laptop decided to not make nice with the projector. Meh.
Luckily, they had another computer for me to use on-site. Despite this techno-barf, I was really happy with how it went [read: I did not vomit or pass out]. I hope that I was able to pass along some useful information to those who attended.
Note: If you came to my presentation and you’re reading this now, hiya! Now that you’re here, sign up for your own blog.
At the end of the conference, I picked up a batch of maps for Vermont Open Studio Weekend. As I mentioned in this post, I like piles of things. As you can see in the image below, I couldn’t resist the pile of maps on my work table.
This year I am site #242 – apparently I moved up from #243.
Don’t be impressed, it doesn’t really mean anything.
I will likely be talking a lot about Open Studio Weekend over the next few weeks – it’s held during Memorial Day Weekend from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. all over the state. If you’d like a copy of the map (it helps you plan your tour), the Vermont Crafts Council website has a list of sites where you can get one.
I leave you with yet another pile image – this time a shot of my newly-arrived postcards for Open Studio Weekend. These will be sent out as invitations to my mailing list (hopefully next week). The images on the postcards are from the photo shoot discussed in this blog post. My hubby takes some nice shots!
