Great news!

I am so excited! I got a show at the Visual Art Exchange! I have been waiting to hear for weeks now and I am not a good waiter. I go through all these ups and downs of--they didn't like my stuff, they think my stuff's gross, maybe they'll like it, of course they'll pick me---the whole gamut. So now I'm waiting to hear what month I'll get. It really made me feel like I am moving in the right direction with my art and that people's responses to my pieces are positive. So now I just need to get cracking and paint more and be more productive. I can't wait until I move into my new apartment in a couple of months so I can have more space! Right now Colby and I cramped into a one bedroom and it is SO not working for us. It really makes me not want to bother painting because I feel so cramped. So, some great news to end the week.
Other than that, I'm working on some tea towels for another swap. I'm looking forward to adding to my embroidery collection and I have yet another great partner Lauren. So I'm excited about that. Of course Easter is Sunday and I'm going to dye eggs this weekend to prepare for the egg hunt and spend some time with my family. Also another bout at roller derby Saturday night with my mom and sister. A busy weekend but some quality family time. Also, next week I'll be a bit busy. I'm going to see a couple of bands play. Monday night will be Of Montreal and I cannot wait! They are wackadoodle. Then Tuesday my friend Chris said I have to go see StereoTotal. From what I've heard online it seems like it will be a great show. Then Superchunk plays Wednesday night but I haven't decided on that on yet. I love living in Carrboro and having Cat's Cradle right down the street. They really have a great line-up for the summer.
