Love New York - Tara Reed DesignsIf you are one of the artists exhibiting at SURTEX next week, this post is for you.

It’s time to take a moment, stand still, and look at what you’ve created.

You are DOING it!  You aren’t just talking about licensing your art but you have put money where your mouth is and it’s almost time for the show to start.

Months – if not years – of creativity and effort have brought you to this place.  The precipice between would could be and what you will make happen.

You are AMAZING!  Creative, brave and business savvy.

You learned, you analyzed, you weighed the pros and cons and decided that exhibiting was the right step for you, your business and your future.  You quieted your fears.  You stayed focused.  You didn’t let the naysayers get you down.

And now – it’s time!

I applaud you and look forward to sharing an amazing show floor with you on May 17, 18 & 19th.  We are off to write our future…
