I am lucky to be doing a show at this grand old house in Redlands on Nov. 5 & 6. Isn't it beautiful? I am so intrigued to see it. It is a historical landmark owned by the charming ladies of Two Wild Roses. The art/craft/vintage fair will take place on the sprawling front lawn that seems to be surrounded by lots of gorgeous rose bushes. I can't wait to see it! As for me....I will have a new batch of originals and right now I am working on the cutest little package tags that could also be used as ornaments. I have ornament ideas dancing in my head but I just read a blog that this is just 17 days away! The days are flying by and I am working as hard and fast as any elf you've ever seen! My work table is filled with felt stockings and mittens, glitter and gold, buttons and baubles and snowflakes too! The glitter is flying, paintbrushes painting, all to make a table full of holiday goodies just for you! I hope to see you there!

|Some of the girls that sold and all went to good homes!|
I learned so much from these shows. First, always remember to check the camera! Second, not to stress out so much. It may be a day with great sales and if it's not, it will be a great day of making new friends and contacts. I set up 2 more shows before the holidays and was approached about doing classes at someones shop. Managing stores my whole life, I made sure I had all price points represented. That worked well for me. I realize not everyone can afford to buy an original but my journals and wooden blocks were all mini versions of my work that anyone could fit in their budget.
I will definatly do more shows in the future. These were a lot of fun.
