Art Show

Managed to get hold of the pics mum took at the weekend, here is the finished stand with my work on it...

Can you believe Rich built this all by himself out of 2 old doors we got of freecycle and a load of old pallet wood!

Rich had to make it in stages so the first time it was all screwed together and stand up on its own was at the show, we meant to test run it at home but it kept raining so we never got chance, good job he's so cleaver and it all fitted together fine!

I got some lovely comments about how well the stand complimented my work, it was Rich's idea to paint the shelves white then sand the edges off a little to give them a slightly worn look, I think it was works really well together.

and lastly here I am looking chuffed with my stand, lets hope it survives in our garage to do this again next year!

Hopefully I will be putting pics from the whole event up on the art show website (when I get 5 mins that is!)

Where Have I Been!

I have just looked at my last entry and realized it has been a month since i posted, how very lazy I am! Well not that lazy actually, I've been working my little paper cut fingers off getting ready for the art show which was the weekend just gone. It went well despite a last minuet change of venue (meaning that all the printed fliers where wrong, but never mind!) I didn't sell anything but all my business cards have gone and I have had a few follow up enquires vie the shops so that's great! there will be pics of the show and the totally fabulous stand Rich built for me, but they are on Mums camera so I am waiting on an email for her (hint hint mum!)

Anyway right now I'm busy filling orders...

designing my wedding invitations...

Doing a little more logo design...

and when I get 5 mins where I'm not doing any of those things I'm making miles of bunting for the wedding...

No wonder my hands are aching!

Also a quick thank you to Francesca for choosing Under The Stair Studios as one of her Folksy Feature Sellers, its always nice to be recognized! Francesca writes a lovely blog totally worth a look here!
