I can't believe October is almost gone--I'm still trying to figure out what happened to September! Saturday is Halloween already, and Sunday brings three notable things in my world: (1)That extra hour of sleep I look forward to every year when we lose Daylight Savings Time; (2)My 12th wedding anniversary; and (3)the next Old Town Underground Artists' Market. To my loving husband: Happy Anniversary honey...you get to help me schlep tables and boxes to the show!
Thanks to everyone who came out to see Mary and I at Holidays In Haslett. It's such a fun show! I wish it was held about a month later, though, since it always seems to coincide with Michigan State football--and this year it was homecoming. That may have cut into our crowd a little, but it was still a happenin' place. Here's Mary hard at work on her lovely hats and hand warmers...
...and here's my table, and--what the hell? Who's the gray-haired old woman standing there? When this busy time is over, I think Mother Nature and I need to have a serious talk...
Anyhow...I put together a bunch of bead strands in time for the show.
I separated them into three price-points, but haven't yet come up with a great way to display them.
Hopefully people will be willing to paw through baskets until I have my brainstorm.
I also put out some new rings:
Of course, as a Crazy Cat Lady, I couldn't resist doing this one:
I've been going through a bunch of scrap clay, old canes, and odds and ends lately, and making more beads to use stuff up. I'll have those at Old Town, as well as more rings and earrings. I've been trying my hand at some buttons also, and I may have a few of those done in time. At the very least I'll post some pictures here as soon as they are finished being sanded and polished.
Well, back to my work table--Sunday will be here before I know it!
