Hey everyone--I'm back! I didn't come back a rich lady, but I do have enough money to pay some bills, and feed my art supply and online class addiction, so I'm happy! I took my camera with me so I could take some pics to post, but I didn't want to show my work--you all know what it looks like, so I decided to show you some of my artist/friends and their work!
Here I am with my buddy Diane--
She makes beautiful porcelain jewelry--
She hand-forms all of her jewelry from porcelain clay, and then embellishes alot of the pieces with Swarovski crystal, Czech glass or semi-precious stone beads--very unique and creative jewelry!
And here she is in her booth : )
My neighbor was Designs by Stephanie--
Stephanie is a very talented textile artist --
This is all handpainted and very well done. She has a great eye for color--she has just the right touch--you know what I mean?
And then there is Natalie and Rich's booth--it's a double booth so I couldn't get it in just one shot--
They have the most impressive booth--it's better than alot of stores that I've been in. I'm telling you, Natalie, you could design store fronts.. The name of their business is Thru The Garden Window, and they have a little bit of everything for decorating your house with a vintage feel. Their signature items are their florals--
When ever I see them, their booth is stocked and decorated with seasonal items--perfectly!!! (Hi Natalie!--remember to leave a comment : )
I have all the contact info on these guys--so if anyone is interested and wants to know more, just let me know.
And as far as how I did--well I sold my tulip piece and phone table from my last post and also my little magazine stand that I showed you here, but I don't like to say it that way. I like to think that these pieces found their homes. And this is the first time that I ever took my painted faces to a show, and I did very will with them --4 of them found their home. And the ladies that purchased them were very excited. They asked me questions about my work and were very interested in what I do. The one lady even shook my hand! So after reading this whole post--now you know why I love doing these shows!
One more thing--thanks to my employee (aka husband) I was able to take a break during the show. And right across the street was this--
And next door was this store--
So I was good to go! Our town doesn't have a Jo Ann etc--do you believe that?! We have just a regular Jo Ann's, but that doesn't compare to an etc.. We do, however, have a very large, very popular casino that people from all over come to, but yet there's no Jo Ann etc. here--this just doesn't make any sense to me at all!
