My First Booth!

Saturday I participated in my first art fair. Luckily, I have a friend who use to show her work but has not done so in about 5 years. She loaned me her EZ-up, card rack and 2 - A frame panels to display work. The panels were covered in burlap that was faded. So for about $17.00 and the hard labor of my daughter... the panels we rejuvenated! 
My daughter graciously helped me throughout the day. I really think it was God's way of making me actually sit still and not really do much for 8 hours.

Here are a few shots of the booth. I sewed the edges of my Re-Discover Canvas that I painted in Alisa Burke's class as my backdrop...I sold a few prints and cards and made a small profit. This was a learning experience for me. The show took place close to my house so I thought it would be a good trial run. I met a few nice people too. I loved when children came into my booth. For some reason kids seem to like to look at my work... that makes me happy. My favorite comments are; "your work is cheerful" and "it makes me happy".
