Fine, good-looking bunch, eh? :)
The weekend started out with setup, then a quick check-in to the hotel (plus a quickly-slammed Lemon Drop), then back to Hermann Sons Hall for the Artist's Reception dinner. We had but one task: make a centerpiece with what was on the table or the room (and eat and drink!).... We did. It was a fun ice-breaker!
Mr. ShellHawk even joined in!
The next day was nerves before the opening, but the group photo op loosened us up and got us united!Mr. ShellHawk helped to arrange the stock, and since he has a good eye for form and color, I let him go to town with that!
He did a really great job setting up and in helping me to run the booth. I was so grateful, especially considering he has a stressful "real job" to think about right now!
|Yes, I'm making cake plates. Keep an eye on the store for more!|
His booth was so full at the beginning of the day, and nearly empty at the end! I was so glad for him!
I got to meet Melissa Valeriotte, too. She is a fun and sweet woman, as well as dedicated to her art! Check out her darling critters:
It's going to be a blast, going next year. I can't wait. I mean, art and Hallowe'en? What an awesome marriage!
