Tacky Jack's was a total success!!!

OMGOSH....I have never smiled so much in my life. OK...well...perhaps I have, but it's been a very long time to have smiled as much as I did yesterday and it made my face actually hurt. In a good way though, a VERY good way. ^_^

My pieces were liked by all and even a bit of oohing and ahhing going on. That to me, as an artist, is the greatest compliment...when others truly like your work. I'm feeling like this is just the beginning of a very good relationship with Tacky Jack's and this quirky artist.

The displays should be up by the first of next week and rest assured that I will be popping in and taking some photos to share. There are going to be some really great works by some really talented artisans in our area.

While waiting to meet with Tara, I discovered that Tacky Jack's isn't just a place to eat and shop. During the summer months Tuesday thru Friday's, they have some things a going on. What things ya ask? Well, let me tell ya.
