I subscribed to the Orchid forum back in July, 2006. I have
recommended Orchid to many people. I have communicated with a few of
you individually. But, this is my first post!
I just did my first art show! The show itself didn’t bring in many
sales for most of the vendors, me included. For me, though, the main
thing was getting the experience. When I told anybody that it was my
first show, they were surprised. I didn’t want my booth to look like
a first timer. I wanted it to look professional from the start. I
succeeded in that thanks to the Orchid forum and all the information
that I found about booth design. You can see a picture of my booth on
my Web site under Shows. You can also see pictures of my work on my
Web site under Gallery. I’d love your feedback on my work, my Web
site, my booth.
One thing that prompted me to post today is the discussion on using
copper. I only started selling towards the end of last year, and some
sales have been my copper earrings. People like them and I think
copper is especially nice on redheads.
Now that I’ve finally made my first contribution, maybe I’ll get
over my shyness about posting. After all, Helen is a newbie, and now
she’s a regular contributor.
Thanks to all of you who contribute to Orchid! Your advice is
