Everything seems to have fallen into place and almost all the details are finalized before the big Art Licensing Surtex Show in New York this Sunday. Finishing up my press kits today; I ended up going with something a little different and hope the media will enjoy :) On the front of each of the folders I actually hand drew a fun, whimsical design, that can be enjoyed as is or used as a coloring page. Fun for me and fun for them! Yes, a little time consuming for sure, but my daughter Aroon is helping out with the final pen outlining and putting all the folders together. Thank goodness for some help, it's a lifesaver!! And my daughter will also be accompanying me to New York and helping to (wo)man the booth and also share in some of the attention as we collaborated together on the New Inspirational "Happiness Is..."™ line.
I have a couple of days left to soak it all in and double, triple check my list and packing and make sure I have everything I could possibly need, and more! But, it's also important to take these last few days before such a big event and business decision, to relax and not stress too much, it's supposed to be a fun and enjoyable experience, and to go into it with a positive relaxed mindset is key! Make sure to take some time for yourself the next few days, whether it's to get outside and exercise (going for a run myself today :), have a spa day/massage, get your nails or hair done, take your dogs for a long walk in the park and/or anything that customarily relaxes and rejuvenates you.
Here's to everyone having a very successful and FUN Surtex!!
