New Blog Love.....but First

I   want  to  show  you  my  finished  piece  from  my  last  post.



Okay..... I  know  that  there's  gotta  be  someone  out  there  who's  looking  for  this  fun  magazine  stand!

And  a  couple  more  boxes  before  I  go  to  my  show--



I'll be in  the  Wildwind  Folk  Art  and  Craft  Festival  this  weekend--a  great  traditional  Fall  festival,  and  it's  not too  far  from  my  home--only  about  an  hour  away,  which  is  just  a  hop,  skip,  and  a  jump  for  us.  So  that  means  no  overnight  expenses,  and   it's  actually  a  very  enjoyable  ride  through  the  countryside  to  get  there.  I  just  have  to  remember  to  take  my  camera  with  me!  (I'm  pretty  frazzled  right  now)

Okay,  now  for  the  new  blog  that  I  want  to  tell  you  about.  It's  Whimsical  Folk  Artist's  Blog.  She  just  started  her  blog  last  month,   and  also  has  just  started  selling  her  work  on  Ebay.   And  you  all  know  how  hard  it  is  to  get  both  of   these  started.  Her  art  is  very  colorful  and of  course ---lots  of  whimsy (Love her Frida!).   And  last  time  I  checked,  I  was  her  only  follower.  So  let's  give  Whimsical  Folk  Artist  a  following  and  a  friendly  welcome  from  blogland---you  know  how  great  it  is  to  be  supported  by  fellow  artists.
