After the recent shows I really need to pull out some new ideas and create some very different items. I had a few that I may revisit - meaning I'll slightly redesign and make a different version. The last Boro Art Crawl went well - my best so far.
With it being in October I did several cute drawings for any little artists to color if they came by. I had several very sweet kids that enjoyed my little monsters and the girl's favorite the ballerina. I was tickled to see that they still make the big box of Crayolas with the sharper in the back. A much coveted item in my childhood.
A few weeks before the crawl I was playing with poly clay and I think I might have finally figured out the combination of textures and colors to make the clay items look old and worn like I wanted. I was going for a look of something being dug up at an archeological dig from a lost civilization.
I was set up this time in Simply Pure Sweets and man was it hard to not try it all.
I wasn't good, but not real bad either.
I took a few paintings and a little bit of jewelry.
The paintings got very nice comments and some of
the jewelry went to new homes
I posted this on Facebook a few days prior the crawl and it sold.
It's nice to get that message how much? I want it!
I took it to the crawl anyway just to show.
This one was sold at the Crawl
This "dragon's tooth" is in my easy shop
With some of my craft show money I went to the Nashville Bead Show
with Becky, we always go together. It's a blast.
Here are a few things I've made with some of the goodies from that shopping spree.
This vendors stuff was just killer and I'll be getting more from her
for sure. www.etsy.com/shop/CarsonsCove
Dendritic Opal Faceted Points with silver
wire wrap on post earrings
Natural rocks with a wonderful smooth feel and my
Hand cut metal circle with hammered texture with
turquoise wire wrapped point.
Last Saturday Ian and I carved my first ever pumpkin.
What a mess we made and so much fun.
Ian wanted him to have teeth so I thought a
vampire would be good. I think I'd like to try
another one this was fun. Think I need better tools
than a steak knife.
This Saturday a group of people will have a
"rally" in our beautiful little town square.
Pray for peacefulness in all that are there.
Pray for protection for our police and local businesses.
All the business owners will be closed so please
give them some shopping love next week to
make up for being closed on a Saturday.
