I just see it...

...ugh! I did a show at the mall this weekend and it was terrible!! One of the worst shows I've ever, ever done. I guess "mall shoppers" don't appreciate art or handmade things [for the most part]. The only items I saw selling were those fleece scarves that represented various football teams and these angels:I really don't "get" the hype over an angel with a "John Deere Tractor" dress, but hey, who's judging! To each his own. Besides a lot of "crafters" there were several amazing artists, but the person most talented was a guy named Chris Moffet that has only been creating art for a little over a year now. His woodworking skills are just incredible! So after a boring, boring day, I came home with Jack:
and I LOVE him!!!! I have him hanging up in the stairwell, so I can see him every time I come and go from my studio! He's awesome! The show was to benefit the "Enka Fire Department", so, hopefully, they raised some $$ for that. The kids had fun riding around in the remote control firetruck:I don't know how much trust I would have had in a puppet driving my kid around, but like I said before, to each his own.

And it seemed as though the most interest I got in my work was from other vendors, specifically other jewelry vendors. And it's the same old question time and time again "when you look at a pile of beads, how do you know what you are going to make with them, if you don't follow a pattern, or copy something from a magazine or website" and time and time again, I have the same old answer "I just see it" ~ and that's all it is and all I can say about it.
Oh, and I guess you are wondering who won those awesome earrings from my last post?!? {insert drum roll here} ~ lucky #3, which is Chris!!!!! Yay!!!!! Congratulations!! I'll have these on their way to you in two shakes of a lamb's tail! I hope you love & enjoy them!!! Karen [my sister] will be upset, but I might have to send her a pair for Christmas! Enjoy!!

Gotta wrap it up...almost time to take Ozzy to the vet to get his stitches out! Hooray!!! Life is good for me and my little Ozzy. Hope you're week is off to a great start!! Check back Wednesday for another give away!!

♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. Just popping by to say hi.

    Worst show ever: there was a woman selling and this is what she'd tell EVERYONE: they're candles but you don't have to burn them. They were stuffed animals scented and dipped in wax. So creepy looking! And she was selling tons of them, while me and a few others close by just watched it go down.
    Later in the show, her husband came in and they had a very loud fight.

  2. Taste is subjective...your work is awesome and I love Jack!
    I was bummed too, to not win the earrings, but maybe next time! Rub some some beef on my number!! lol
