Tonight I blog with a certain feeling of exhilaration! After many months of stamping and sanding, what I show you here tonight is my very first booth showing my TattooDreams work. It all came together!! I'm at the IX Center in Cleveland doing the By Hand show. After showing fine art for 24 years, showing a line of craft is completely different. For one thing, when I show my fine art, I hang every piece I bring. With this work, I have many pieces tucked away..............I begin to wonder........did I show the 'right' ones..........too much second guessing.......you just have to carefully display enough work to make for a visually exciting booth. I did this with the wonderful assistance of my husband Jon. He built display racks for my ornaments and shelves to showcase my dream boxes. Friends having never seen this body of work did a double take wondering what we were doing with this work and not what they have come to know us for. That part was fun!
The show runs two more days. The weather here in Cleveland will turn colder tomorrow and there may be light snow in the forecast........it's beginning to look a lot like winter!
If you're in the gift giving spirit, please think about Tattoo Dreams and talk to Santa...........he knows where to find me!
Happy weekend and to all a good night!
