Let’s go to New York

So in less than a week I am leaving from Rio to NY to exhibit my textiles at a 3 days expo called PrintSource. That was decided only 2 days ago – yeah totally last minute, I know.
It was a tough decision to put these expenses on my credit card and just go for it – all alone. This is vacation time in Brazil so the airfare was extra expensive – not to mention that just the concept of putting together the artwork for an exhibition was crazy enough. But it just feels like things are falling into the right place – like someone up there is just taking care of it…
And all of this is about a dream. And a game to reinvent myself. I want to show my textiles to the world, I want to put my babies out there, go beyond my comfort zone, beyond what it is safe. And then see what happens… afterall it is my dream and I am allowed to dream big!
I have been to NY only once – about 15 years ago and I loved it so very much! So now I am beyond excited but I will only have 2 days when I get to walk around town. The other days I will be working 9 til 6 (by the way if you want to see my print & pattern collection meet me at PrintSource, August 1-3).
Want to meet me in NY?
Any suggestions of what should I see and where should I go?
 I want to see Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty. Any other ideas?

    It seems simple but anyone who has followed a dream knows how hard it is… but oh so rewarding too!

  • I love a leap of faith like this! I just read the best scripture today about doing this. It was about going out into the deep water, you don’t have land under your feet or see the shore so you just have to faith it. But That is where the Lord does his miracles and pulls out the desires of your heart. I hope this is a blessed trip for you!! And of course when you come to L.A. next we are definitely going to hook up! Wishing you the best doll! xo -Taj

  • Congratulations! This is so exciting! I’m sure everything will turn out exactly as you wish, even better. Wishing you the best of luck and have a fabulous time in NYC! 🙂

  • Vá!! que delícia! NY NY!! divirta-se! boa sorte com a feira – será um sucesso!

    Vá do céu! quase morri na última semana, menina. Eu aluguei um escritório novo e decidi reforma-lo e tinha que fazer tudo até 6a. feira porque precisaria usar a sala no sábado para dar um workshop e foi uma loucura. Deu um monte de coisas erradas, fiquei sem dormir 2 noites e pensei que fosse ter um troço de tão cansada rsrs, mas deu tudo certo. Agora, só falta a decoração eba!!!!!! Se algum dia vc vier a Sampa, vem me visitar? beijos e divirta-se!
