I have finally done it!
My prints are printed, packaged and ready to be delivered to the shop thats going to sell them for me.
I feel elated that they are done, amazed that they look so good and a little bit scared about whether they will sell.

I have had so much help and support to get me to this stage. My friends that have pushed me into 'just doing it' and have supported me by encouraging my art, Mr Lumpy who took the photos of all my canvas' so that I could turn them into prints and my wonderful Dad who tried to teach me how to use his little mount cutter, gave up when I found it impossible and then chipped in half towards a proper Logan mountcutter to make things much easier! My mate that actually walked into a new shop in Ryde and asked them if they would like to see my work, then rang me, said 'pack up your art i'm coming to get you' which resulted in the shop Silver Chimes selling my work!
Also to my blog friends for their positive comments and support when I questioned if I could actually do it.
Of course, the prints actually have to sell now, but just having the shop thinking my art is good enough for them to sell is a huge boost of confidence for me, so after I drop them off tomorrow I am taking Stu and the kids for a celebratory breakfast at Weatherspoons!
