Home From Broadmoor Craft Show

Someone was over heard saying, "It wouldn't be Broadmoor if it didn't rain!".  And rain it did.  Some unlucky vendors had several inches of water standing in their booths while others had mud!  Fortunately, we were nice and dry inside the gym.

We debuted our new sleeker look at this show.  We decided to go black and white with a little burgundy for some color.  A fresh paint job on the displays and new touches of zebra print fabric made our booth a little more appealing and the rug I painted  helped camouflage the gray tarp they used to cover the floor.

Like they said about the Field of Dreams...If you build it, they will come.  At times it got quite crowded in that 10X 20 space and this claustrophobic lady fogot to leave herself a back door.

Here are some other photos of our booth.

It's was fun while it lasted, but now it's back to the painting.  So many Santas to paint and so little time.  We've got another show in less than two weeks!

Hope This Santa Will Be "Right Up the Customer"s Alley"

I hadn't painted any of these bowling pin Santas this year until a customer saw one that was already sold on my website,, and emailed me to see if I could paint one for her.  I never like to paint just one of anything because sitting and watching paint dry is BORING!!!  If I do several, the paint on the first one is dry by the time I do the same step on the others.  Can you tell I'm not a patient person?

I hope this one "bowls" her over!
