First craft show of the season was a success!!

This pic shows my booth at the Country Creations show in Bellevue this weekend. Had a great show, looking forward to doing more shows with Sandy next year.
This is one of the new pieces I finished for the show. It is an old soup stock pot, done up in an adaptation of a Kim Klassen pattern.
This is from a Terrye French "Painting With Friends" pattern.....the wood piece is something I "rescued" from a building that was being a bunch of scrap pieces to "repurpose"
This is a little set of nesting boxes, done with simple little prim scenes...
And one last picture of my Country Creations booth.....I really really stuffed the booth as it was this is a "boutique" show, meaning I am not manning the booth and re-stocking as things sell, so I kind of have to "overfill" so open spots are not so obvious....

This show was a great success, so I am going to be painting like crazy to restock for my remaining shows. Next up is the Funky Junk Sisters "Junk Salvation" Vintage Flea Market Nov 4 & 5 in Puyallup. Will have lots of vintage "smalls" for this show, plus am working on a few painted furniture pieces.

Beginning with the Funky Junk show, I will be displaying a "Four Season" chair that I painted. I am raffling off the chair to raise money for a charity I work with, Pierce County Santa Cops. Tickets will be $2 each or 3/$5. It is a single chair with four different (removable) seats for the four seasons. I will display the chair and sell the tickets at all my Pierce County shows this year. Check back for pictures.

Back soon!!

Let the craft show season begin.......

Has been a while since I posted, so have several pictures....first is a Santa from a Terrye French pattern....this is done on a mink board, and the reverse side has a darling pumpkin and crow....not sure if I posted that pic on the blog or not.....
Next picture shows some of the snowman "army" I have painted up.....
I call these "mood blocks"......just turn them to reflect your mood for the day!!!
These are some cute little resin snowmen and Santa ornaments....from a Susan Kelley pattern from Artists Club
And last, our first class project of the year......little "ghostie gourds" dog loved these, she thought they were a play very happy to be back painting with my "classmates"....I missed them!!

Had a chance to hit the decorative painting convention trade floor in Portland 2 weeks ago, got some great patterns and this past weekend was filled with all the awesome sales and shops in the Chehalis/Rochester/Olympia area.....Country Chicks, Pole Barn Primitives, Deep Creek Barn, Country Shed....we hit them all!!! Have lots more goodies to "re-purpose"!!

My first craft show of the season is Country Creations at Vasa Park Resort in Bellevue, Oct 13-14-15. It is a boutique show, so I won't have to "man" my booth, just set-up, work one shift, and tear down.....

Second show will be the Funky Junk Sisters "Junk Salvation" show in much fun!! Check out their website for ticket pre-sales for early entry!!
