Craft Show

I've been invited to put some of my pieces in a craft show this Saturday. I wish I had known about it sooner because I would have tried to whip up some more 'crafty' type things that I know would sell better than my artwork! Like.........snowmen, santas and halloween themed items!

Oh well, for now it is what it is. I'm going to put my Etsy store on vacation mode tomorrow and I'm going to think long and hard about what goes back in there. I'm ready to revamp things :)

I've painted up a few 5 x 7 watercolor pieces to sell (hopefully) this weekend. I'll include the matting and a protective sleeve. I sure hope somebody will like them♥

Here are just a couple.......

'Twinkle, Twinkle'
A little glitter on the stars




This one is called 'Nothing to fear' Awwwwww, Patches is out walking at night, yet he still smiles and trudges on totally unafraid!

G'night,
Darla

These are wonderful and I hope you do really well at the show this weekend!

I know what you mean about revamping, I just overhauled my shop the other night. It's time consuming but worth it. ;-)

Beautiful! So this is in person craft show, not on-line right?

So what is that experience like? I've never done it. I am wondering what it is like to spend the whole day there? Have you done it before? It would be great if you can post a show report when you are done! I am curious if it was an okay experience, if you made sales, if it was worth it.

Thanks for all the good luck wishes for this sale and the compliments!
I really don't expect much in sales, but I hope to be pleasantly surprised. I could use the cash-o-la!

I'm bringing a few ACEOs but I'm pretty sure nobody will know what they are. LOL Therefore, I've printed out a 'WHAT IS AN ACEO' sheet so people can read about them.

I'll report in hopefully tomorrow but if not, first thing Sunday.

I would like to invite you in joing the business card exchange to increase artist's customer base. These customers already know what ACEOs are, since they are buying from fellow artists!

Darla I absolutely love these. You do so many pictures that I am truly crazy about.

Darla the funeral was good but it was hard.

Since Jacquie is paralyzed all on the left side it was harder because she had to go in a different transit vehicle and then the big production of getting out of it when all you want to do is go somewhere to be super close to your dead child.

Love Renee xoxo
