Well, today I went around the city centre and handed out some flyers. I didn’t go into every shop as I couldn’t bring myself to talk to that many people but I did hand a few out. I wore some star earrings and my red decorative scarf, which ended up as a funky bracelet before I finished. It was going to be longer but it works fine so I might actually leave it at the length it is. And my face is a little red from the heat and from being embarrassed as I don’t really like going out of my way to talk to people I don’t know.
And I’ve been getting replies from the Mackay council members I’ve emailed and so far everyone who has got back to me has said they will check it out
when they can as some of them are out of town for the first week. And some said they will come to the opening so that is exciting.
My decorative scarf had to be wrapped around my wrist as it gained length to stop it from pulling as I worked, as the weight would pull it down. And then it had to go over my shoulder as it got longer as it was too bulky to work with around my writs.
I guess if I leave it at the length it is now it will be more of a necktie than a scarf.
And here is the DIY earring display from last week. It is not the best but it works and that is all I really wanted. And it has room to spare! The display my cousin Kea gave me is now empty and can be filled up again so I can make lots more.
Other than sorting out my exhibition not much else is happening so I will leave it at that. Catch you next time, Louise.

Good on you for pushing through, Lou. Comfort zones are for sitting on anyway. Best wishes for your art show

thank you Julie ❤️
The necktie that can be used as a bracelet is amazing! I am much more shy than you are, going inside shops and handing out flyers that would be too much for me. I think you are looking for a name for your exhibition, but maybe I have misunderstood what you wrote. I have come up with Beautiful Geometry. And the dodecahedron earrings which have been bought by an Austrian lady who collects earrings. It could be me as I also kind of collect earrings, that is the only jewellery I wear now. All the best to you, Ana Cravidao

Hi Ana, thanks. Yeh, it was nerve-racking to walk into the shops. Yes, I am looking for a name for an exhibition I am applying for. I like Beautiful Geometry and it might actually work with the theme. thanks 😊. I loved the dodecahedron earrings I made myself a similar pair.
