A Show....



So I had this idea to take before and after pictures at the Irvine Flea Market...
The before setup picture was easy ... the after not so easy... that is to remember to take!! 
It was super windy so my friend Rose and I could not put up the awning. We got busy before we were even close to having everything out. Trust me I am not complaining about being busy!!! My grand plan did not go as I had wanted but it was a fun filled selling kind of day!!!! Which is good..... I love doing shows with Rose, she is one of the sweetest people I know and soooo talented.. she makes these incredible pillows.. which of coarse I don't have any pictures of:(

I have been very busy getting ready for my shows in June... With our weather lately its a bit challenging to paint and create outside... I have some new ideas busy making jewelry using broken vintage jewelry and combining it with new... My daughter Sarah has been helping me to create and to think outside of the box.. I think we have some really cool pieces... I will post those pictures in a few days... I would love to hear your comments when I post them..

Thanks for stopping by:)

Maxie and Spring:)

So my promise to do better at updating my blog... well didn't pan out the way I had hoped... Soooo it's a new month and I am up and running again!!!! Maxie and I had a very fun day baking and decorating the Spring Baskets and the colored eggs... You should of seen the cupcake he decorated for himself:) His original plan was to put icing on the cupcake then the jelly beans and candies THEN another layer of icing.. I nixed that idea, after all he was spending the night with me..... Gigi wanted to get some sleep:)

The past 3 weeks have been jammed pack with getting ready for shows working on special orders and then doing the shows.. whew its been busy... Last weekend I did a Saturday show in Huntington Beach and then on Sunday a show in Irvine. They were both great fun and very busy... I will post pictures from those shows soon.
