I’m so excited to have my first "Art Opening". I have had my work in around town for years, but to have an actual event is fantastic. It has been crazy busy, but great getting ready for it. The fact that Little Savannah wants to show my work in the restaurant is just incredible. The owner, management, and staff are fantastic. I am truly honored to a part of their Birmingham experience.
Talk about a wild ride, this has been one and it’s not over yet. From writing the talk, to memorization and beyond to conversational, to rehearsals, this has been an adventure. I have a fantastic coach (Glenny Brock – past TedX speaker) who has waived her magic wand and helped me so much to not only turn my talk into something that I am very proud of, but to turn herself into a very dear friend. During this process I have learned that there truly isn’t anything I can’t do, I just have to figure out how.
HauntCon 2016 was a blast! I made lots of new friends and can't wait till next year. My educational demonstration went great, nothing but positive feedback. Click on the "Read More" button to see some pictures from the event as well as some resources like a recipe and the talk handout.
I'm going to be teaching an Educational Demonstration at HauntCon this year and I don't think it's possible to be more excited about it. HauntCon describes them as messy and technical seminars with artisans sharing techniques and methodologies for Tips and Tricks to make your attraction better. My demonstration is entitled "Out with New and in with the Old: How To Give Props New Life" where I'll be showing how to save money by upcycling / reclaiming what you already have laying around. Combine parts and pieces to create new props.
