With the hint of warm and sunny weather just around the corner, my thoughts are eagerly anticipating Art Walks and summer weather fun. Like everyone else, I'm ready to soak up some warm sun rays and refresh my whole life. Or maybe that last part is just the spring fever.
Either way it's time to start thinking about what spring and summer craft shows to apply for and begin building my list of deadlines so I don't miss any favorites. My portfolio of images also needs updating as well as creating a document of application answers (post coming Friday) so I'm not reinventing the wheel with every application I fill out. This is definitely a time saver if you'll be applying to more than one or two shows per year.

I want to build up my Show list to include 2-4 shows a month, with a goal to attend a handful of new shows every year. So far I have 5 new shows in this year's line up, but my list still feels quite short. If you know of any Shows that you'd like to see Knittedhome attend, please comment below or shoot me an email.
