So now that the Bupa Blog Awards are done and dusted I should have massive amount of free brain space right? 

No. No my friends there is not. #nospace #overload

After the awards ceremony I went to the bathroom, took a selfie and got psyched up for my next project. Good to have eggs in other baskets.

No disappointment in these eye holes

Why am I talking about baskets and eggs and selfies, well to the point—> I’m doing my first art show!!!!!!

This is an absolute dream come true/ life goal and it’s just a few weeks away. I started chattering about it on my social media pages but here it is officially on the blog. So that makes it real.

Hell yeah!

RAW, the Independent Arts Organisation contacted me through Etsy, which was seriously flattering, at first it seemed too good to be true. The more research I did on the organisation the more I wanted IN so I locked. it. down.

RAW Melbourne Presents: Verve

October 14th, Melbourne Pavilion @ 7:00PM

I LOVE that RAW was created by artists for artists and they’ve done a fantastic job of making it affordable for those of us who are just getting started. No booking fees and they don’t take commission on anything I sell on the night, I just have to sell 20 tickets or essentially help bring 20 friends through the door.

I’ve been working behind the scenes for quite a few weeks now but I wanted to focus firstly on the blog awards and designing the layout of my new site (which is still in progress). Hope you likey!! (Feedback welcome.)


Free on the evening of October 14th? In Melbourne? You should COME! You can purchase tix here

Much excite! Very art! OMG yay!

Have you ever done a show or market? Any advice?

Offer: If you can’t make it but want to sponsor me with a ticket purchase, I’ll give you $10.00 off anything in my Etsy store– let me know with a comment, message or email: dawnrieniets@gmail.com and I will send you a discount code. (Anything that does not sell on the show will be posted in the store shortly thereafter.)
