Well, all the art is packaged up and on its way to Florida, which is where the craft fair is being held. All in all, I made 28 pixie sticks, 26 frames, and 9 stuffed lambs. If I sell it all (crossing my fingers), I'll earn about $1300. It was a LOT of work- I sure hope it was worth it! The whole opportunity was presented to me sort of last minute, which is why I was in such a rush to get things done.

Although it was tons of work, it actually was kind of nice to feel like I had something I was working for. Being a stay-at-home mom makes me feel somewhat "useless" in a lot of ways, if that makes sense. I'm not supporting the family, and I don't want to just be wasting my time at home. For the past week, I felt like I had a "purpose"! Don't get me wrong though, I'm glad I'm done and I'm going to enjoy the breather now that I've done all I can do for this particular event. And I'm going to be able to actually do some real artwork again! I've missed doing collage the past couple weeks, and am anxious to get back in the studio and have some fun.

Tomorrow night, I'm going to try to drive up to Pt. Townsend and go to Vendor Night at Artfest. That should get me inspired, and maybe I'll find some fun new materials, too!

So here're photos of all the pieces I made for the show. Once it's over and I receive back the pieces that didn't sell, I'll list them in case anyone is interested.

Corey, I just love these frames. I absolutely see no reason why you can't sell these somewhere. However, if you don't like the whole production line thing and get bored easy, I don't know. Retail can get tedious...
I want the one that says "cutie" or next the one that says "home". That is if they don't sell, and I'm quite sure they will!
