Yeeeeee-ha!

Great news! The lovely Annette Eassie from Regional Arts New South Wales just emailed me (on a Sunday! They're very dedicated at RANSW...) to say I am the lucky recipient of a Quicks grant to help me attend the Impact 7 international printmaking conference at Monash University, Melbourne, at the end of September. This is wooooonderful news because without the grant I didn't have a cat's chance in hell of getting there. I am thrilled. So now I can go off into the garden in a happy glow, and dream of metropolitan delights later in the year: the galleries! the Japanese shop! the city! the exhibitions! the shops! (nope, no money for shopping) Be still my beating heart...

That's great news Sara! Congratulations! I'm heading down too, so fingers crossed we will be able to meet at last.

fantastic! (now you just have to cross your fingers for me - I'll put something together in the next while....) otherwise it will be you and amanda and duckie dealing with the BAO exhibition stuff! (I'm so snowed under with AGHHHH! right now - I don't know how I'll find time to even LOOK at the quickie paperwork!)

That's fantastic! I can't believe how frigging expensive that conference is; if I had had any idea I wouldn't have put in a submission... I thought if I gave a paper there would be some, any, discount, but there's nothing! Oh well, the benefit is the amount of networking and socialising I'll cram into the week. And now I get to hang with you! Huzzar!

(and greetings from Sturt, where it's the anniversary of BAO!)
