Hello Friends . . .

Oh my, I had so much fun today. I actually set up a booth at the Holly Day Market hosted by the Junior League. It is the first time that I've done the booth thing with my paintings. Now, I've done the booth thing before - you know, when small words was a stationery and gift store - does anyone remember that?? I barely do!! Back then, it really wasn't worth the time nor the effort. By the time you packed everything up, loaded the car, drove to where ever, unpacked, set up, tried desperately to sell "something" without looking desperate, packed it up again, loaded it back up in the car, drove back home ----- just to realize you are now officially in the hole because you spent more money with the other vendors than you made!!?? Yeah, count me OUT!! But this time - for whatever reason, I felt inclined to do this one . . . and so glad I did. First off my booth was in an awesome location {smooshed in between 2 mamma-jamma booths} and it was only 3 hours long. Seriously, there was no lull what so ever!! My mouth was moving the entire time - okay, so that's not unbelievable - BUT I wasn't talking to myself!!! I sold lots and have several folks {hopefully} getting back to me with some more orders!!

With all that said, I've got to get started on some painting!!! I promise to have "OPERATION: PROJECT TWO" up at the first of the week . . . . HEY - who HAS COMPLETED THAT WREATH???? Hmmmmm!?!? Expecting some answers!

Kim would you want to set up at a booth on Thursday the 29th. I have a friend putting something together at her church in Lascassas. I don't think there would be any fee to set up. Your paintings are amazing! I can't wait for project two. So glad Cara told me to check out the projects.

Hi Kim ! I am glad you had a good time and it was worth you going. Did you run out of cards?

I remember when you did a booth at the First United Methodist Church ~ memba that? You had the letters, stationary and those super cool crosses!

Yeah believe it or not she wasn't talking to herself but her mouth didn't EVER stop moving. heehee (noone would believe that if you personally know Kim--am I right? HA) It was definitely a good show!

SO I have completed my wreath too and it looks supercool! ---waiting on project #2. =)
