What a great 2 weekends I've had at my festival Christmas in the Woods. Everything is closed up until next August for the next big festival that happens there called Shaker Woods.
So this is what I would see when I looked out of the front door of my booth. This land is owned by the people who run the August show, so these booths are permanent. The artists in the August festival own them, and then us artists in October rent them for Christmas in the Woods.
I love my booth!
On the other side, that you can't see, is an L-shaped counter, which is perfect, since they want us to demonstrate our art. And as you can see, it's a pretty big space to fill, which is why I made a lot of Christmas florals and decor to help fill it up. I thought that the most I would get would be compliments on my artwork, but like I said in my last post, I was wrong. My art was selling just as well as the Christmas items on both weekends!
This last weekend's weather was not good either. On Saturday it was cold and very windy, and on Sunday it rained off and on all day--kind of miserable. But if you live in the Northeastern part of the U.S., you know how the weather can be. I've seen it 70 degrees and sunny in the morning, rain in the afternoon, ending up with a couple of inches of snow by nightfall--really!! So whatever Mother Nature is ready to dish out to us, we can handle it. And especially on Sunday--these ladies shopping didn't care at all about getting wet or being cold--they were Shopping!! It ended up being as good a weekend as the one before.
Sad to see it over with, but glad for the break. I have one more show, and that's at the beginning of December, so I can relax for just a little bit--just a little : )
So for the last couple of weeks, I really haven't left the house, and I've missed my other favorite thing to do--shopping.....so..........I went to Etsy and did a little shopping there. This was what was waiting for me when I came home on Sunday night.
This cute litte owl from Cameron. The pictures just don't do him justice--I love this!! Cameron is one seriously talented lady, and you can see even more at her blog Paint Myself Pretty.
....Beautiful, Beautiful earrings from Sharon. Sharon, if you're reading this--these earrings are so special--thank you for creating them! Please visit her at her blog Livewire Jewelry if you haven't already.
These are only 2 purchases of many that I've made through Etsy--most of it artwork for my artoom, from blogging buddies. I've yet to even hang them yet, but I can't wait until I do. I WILL most definitely take a pic and show you all.
And a P.S. to Cameron and Sharon--thanks for the extra goodies--it means a lot to me!
