Today was a stressful day to say the least but I managed to do what needed to be done and I can now say that I am ready for the show. As mentionted in my previous post I found out that after reading my paper work for this year's show the inventory was supposed to be in by Monday and not this coming Monday.
After losing some sleep then emailing my hostess, everything was ok and I am to drop off what I can of my stock. So today was a work on things day anyways, I finished my painting yesterday, good thing, I was going to paint today but, yesterday before this all happened I said no stop and that is enough. You know when your brain says enough???? well it is for a reason.
So I plugged away all day and got everything done. I drilled holes, I hammered hangers on wood, I made tags for my items, I packaged, I priced, I counted I documented. This took me all day. I woke up at 5:30, sat with JB while he got ready for work. I then started my day around 6:30 when he left and it has been pretty much non stop ever since.
I still have 2 more things to package but it won't take long. The car is almost packed.
Phew, what a day. I was really quite stressed and even had a bit of a ugh moment but it all had to be done.
Today the Lord gave me a lot of patience and I am so thankful!
Below are 2 canvases I completed. The Snow fella I designed myself, sort of got a bit of a Monika Brint inspiration but this is all my own drawing and painting with what I had in mind. I quite like it, Big head, small facial features except that nose which I just adore.
Every snowman has to have a snowflake, afterall all those snowflakes make a snowman.
And last but not least another Kim Klassen deSign that I just love.
This is the canvas I mentioned that took me all day to do, mind you I did 2 of them at the same time but it was time to quit painting. It was taking forever for me to complete and enough was enough.
Remember those of us who do this every year, we do it with love and skill.
It takes a lot of time and effort to do our art. Buy handmade either in Canada or America, it is not made in China, but, by someone who sat either at home or in a studio skillfully crafting their wares.
We thank you for your patronage and hope you enjoy your handmade goodies as much as we love making them.
