Well, we had the same email the other exhibitors received yesterday telling us Dubai Doll Art Exhibition has been cancelled due to lack of funds! On the negative side we will miss Dubai and a great opportunity and obviously this is a huge disapointment.
However it is also a relief as we don't have to kill ourselves making 50 pieces of work in the 2 weeks we have left and we were still lucky enough to have been short listed to one of only 4 miniature artists, and maybe there is always next year? All the great ideas/dolls can be used for Miniatura, Arnhem and Madrid at the end of the year so nothing is lost ;o)
So what will we do with ourselves now the panic is over? We now have time to go on holiday so we are taking mum to Spain next week to stay with her sister, I won't miss my mums operation on the 6th July (she is having a kidney stone removed) and Aidy and I are going on holiday for two weeks as yet destination unknown - first time we have had a holiday just the two of us for 6 years!!!! So in the end things happen for a reason and that reason will be time spent with family and loved ones ;o)
Now to get ready for Scottish miniatura - only two days!!!
