March 2019

  1. Off to an amazing start! Said “Bye Now!” to Corporate America. Or to those of us who are of certain age to remember the SNL (Saturday Night Live) Short with Helen Hunt/David Spade; “Buh-Bye”.  “I’m sorry, which part didn’t you understand? The “buh”? or the “bye”?… “Buh-bye” LOL! (classic)
  2. Joined FB Group SOAR VA FPV some mega talent there!
  3. Hosting a 2-Day Open Studio event March 16-17 with the benefiting rescue Fluvanna SPCA
  4. Reached out to Louisa County Animal Shelter to help them with photography and re-engaging with to widen their volunteer pool. Very excited at opportunities here.  It’s a really well-kept shelter!
  5. Researching for Art Shows the rest of the year.  My former colleagues are hoping I venture up to NoVa and they offered to help and visit my booth.  Even travel this way (Central Virginia) to visit an art show and socialize!  I’m thinking they will LOVE Charlottesville!
  6. Applied to be an Official Doobert Organization, so I have temp status so far as they finish their due diligence on my application!  This allows me more flexibility to help as well as sell my art in the Doobert Rescue Store which will, in turn, help rescues, since one of my promo pieces is to purchase my art and other creative pieces and donate to rescues for their fundraisers, and for adoption awareness!
  7. March 28-30 Doobert will be in VA Beach! They are attending a huge VA Humane Society Event and I am going out there to meet them! Chris has a presentation on Friday at 12:45-1:45 teaming in some kind of way with High-Five. I will bring some of my Doobert Rescue Store treasures and volunteer to help with their “booth”!
