Hi everyone, it’s been a week since I posted. I’ve been busy getting ready for an arts and craft show that I’ll be in next Saturday. My friend and creative partner, Gale have been cranking out our work. (The butterflies are one example of what we’ve got going on). One thing we’re having trouble with is pricing. We don’t want to price ourselves out of the show, but we need to make it worth while, too. I’m sure everyone that sells their stuff asks the same questions. This will be our first show together as a team and it is exciting and also scary to think our stuff may be rejected. You really put your heart out in the open for people to tramp all over with art or anything that you create. Oh and by the way, I’ve created these digital designs with her poetry (please respect our copyright) and I’m trying to come up with some different ways to actually mount them to sell. So far, I’ve come up with framing them (not so different) and decoupage them to wooden plaques. Anyone have any great ideas that they would be willing to share with me? I’d love hear your thoughts.
We’ve had I don’t know how many days with snow and I am sick of it. I’m ready to get outside and I am more of a fair weather kinda gal. I don’t like to get out when it’s cold. Now we are looking for another possible winter storm this Sunday. Yuck. I long for the days of late spring and summer. It’s days like this that I wish I lived in Hawaii or Fuji or some fantastic place like that.
My fellow blogger friend, Kathryn of SassmowthDesigns mentioned today the One World One Heart being over and all the giveaways that was going on. (I didn’t win any either, Kat) I know that I enjoyed the One World One Heart as a spectator and ended up following a whole new bunch of great blogs. I now have so many that I keep up with that I find I am not getting as much done as I want to! Oh well, they are usually such great inspiration that it will pay off. And who can have too many friends, right?
Also, if I have any Florida friends that are in the area of Wolfy’s Waterfront Bar n Grill in Sanford, please email me and I’ll mail you a gift certificate for there that will expire before I get back down to Florida. I only have one, so if there happens to more than one, I’ll put your name in a hat. You’ve got til this Saturday the 20th to contact me.
Artist, dreamer, gardener and nature nut. I love iced tea, music, scary ghost movies, growing all kinds of plants especially tomatoes and houseplants and enjoying my life in the country with my husband, son and our 3 cats and my ever faithful studio dog, Zoey.
I spend my summers weeding in the gardens and the fall and winter doing art shows and painting in my studio. Spring is a busy gardening time for me as well.
I blog about my life, gardens and paintings I'm working on. I also have my work for sale on my site.
Find me in my art studio attached to my greenhouse painting all the beauty that surrounds me.
