FREE PUBLIC EVENT
I think it's going to be a fairly small event - there were only 20 or so of us on the list. But, just as with the summer Art Market - QUALITY versus QUANTITY. Sometimes the big, BIG shows can get overwhelming to the visitors. And those vendors 'stuck' at the back or end of the line are often out of luck because the visitors have spent their money on the way down through the show, or just plain tucker out before they finish, not realizing they're missing out on the best of the show! I think 20 will be just fine. It's quite an impressive bunch, too. I know some, know OF some, and have seen some of the work. We're going to have a GREAT weekend!
Now for the prep. I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and got these:
I think I'm going to leave them purple.
This photo is the scrapbook paper I got that will accent the yellow velour and light beige cloths I'm going to be using. That center section? Yep - that's scrapbook paper that looks like pearls. Excellent!
My beading mojo is also slightly returning. I found a vintage dragonfly in my stash yesterday, that had cross hatched wings. I am bead 'cross stitching' them, and attaching them to Stiff Stuff, so that I can embroider around the wings, too. All metallics, for the Metal-icious line. I've sold quite a few of those pieces at Coyote - so I may be on a crash course of creating new pieces. I would like to have a nice display of them to show off.
Peaceful beading everyone,
