Taking a Breath......

Wow!!   As  fast  as  my  big  show  came  up  on  me--it's  all  over  now.    What  an  awesome  show  this  was.   Two  weekends  ago  I  was  all  set  up  to  go.....
 
 
 
The  weather  was  beautiful,  and  the  crowds  came  in  full  force....
 
 
 
It  was  overwhelming  on  how  many  people  were  at  this  show!!   And  these  people  are  here  to  buy  and they  really  appreciate  handcrafted  items  and  art  as  well.    The  long  hours  of  getting  ready  for  this  event  were  well  worth  it.
 
I  was  pretty  depleted  by  the  time  the  first  weekend  was  over,  so  the  next  week  I  rushed  to  make  some  quick  art  by  recycling  my  old  pieces...
 
 
 
Even  though  these  are  prints  of  mine,  I  was  able  to  give  them  a  fresh  new  look.   So  I  was  able  to  fill   the  walls  of  my  booth  again  along  with  my  Christmas  florals.
 
I  did  make  a  point  of  making  one  new  piece  for  the  next  weekend  though....
 
 
 
This  was  a  fairly  large  piece,  and  I  finished  it  up  on  the  Thursday  before  I  had  to  leave  again.   Usually  these  pieces  take  a  while  to  sell,  but  not  at  this  show--less  than  48  hours  from  when  I  had  finished it--it  sold!   Yeah--that's  how  good  this  show  is.
 
And  remember  all  of  my whimsy  houses  from  my  last  3  posts?--all  sold  but  one!   I'm  telling  you--this  show  is  awesome!    So  the  piece  that  didn't  find  a  home  is  now  in  my  Etsy  shop--
 
 
I  feel  bad  that  this  little  birdie  didn't  find  a  home---so  if  anyone  wants  to  give  him  one,  you  can  find  him  HERE.
 
And  did  I  mention  how  delicious  the  food  was  there??   I  had  a  steady  diet  of  the  deep  fried  pickles  there--absolutely  delicious!!
 
I  was  sad  to  say  goodbye  to  this  place  :- (
 
 
......until  next  year...
 
So  now  I'm  taking  a  little  breather,  but  just  a  little  one,  because  I  have  one  more  show  at  the  end  of  November,  and  I'm  starting  to  work  on  some  new  art...
 
 
....but  now  I'm  able  to  enjoy  the  process  a  bit.....

Congratulations on a successful show Diane! Have a nice little break. Your pieces are beautiful and so inspiring! It makes me want to put my canvas and oils away and break out the recycled pieces and fun stuff! Take care,
