What a week I have had and coming up! Its that busy time of the year. I love it so much. I was in my first arts and craft show in many years this weekend. Its called the Briar Patch and its been a local favorite in the Phoenix area for over 25 years now. I met the sweet lady, Jeannie, who has run this show since the very beginning and she runs a great show and is a pleasure to work with. If you are in the Phoenix metro area there will be another Briar Patch show Oct 10th and 11th. It is at Sequoya Elementary School at 11808 N 64th St in Scottsdale. This is THE BIG ONE! Well over 100 vendors, I heard some say up to 200. People come from out of state to participate in this show. Great fudge and peanut brittle too! Here is their website for more info: www.briarpatchcrafts.com Maybe I will see ya there. Here is a couple photos of this weekends show. April helped me set it up and she decided on a snack. lol This is a lady I met and she makes the most adorable items and starts with vintage chenille bedspreads. She has a way of putting patterns and colors together. Just gorgeous. This is one side of my space. Next week I will have a more elaborate display to show. :) Last is a photo of one of my new pillows. Its wrapped like a pretty gift and you never have to open it. I thought the cute altered art tags would really be cute. I got these from Carrie at http://www.noellegarrettdesigns.com/.
I also will be doing a show the beginning of November with The Irish Cultural and Learning Foundation. It will be with the popular First Fridays are walk in downtown Phoenix. And of course starting Monday, 10-5 is the shop hop at Make Mine Pink. Be sure to visit all of the participating shops to find the hidden shopping bags to be entered in drawings for great prizes. So many of the shops are running great specials and having special events and contributions for Breast Cancer Awareness. www.makeminepink.com/shop-hop . Its going to be an exciting week, be sure to get in on some of the fun... Until next time... gail
